Okay, I know this is supposed to be really wrong and all, but... awww! Look at the cute lil' pimps!

How come the ho looks like a flapper? The ho's I've, um, known, never looked so demure.

That's clearly a whore, not a ho.

I believe the children are our future.

I'm glad someone has finally recognized the vital importance of training the next generation of pimps. What, you'd rather they learn this stuff on the streets?

Ah, certainly one's first impulse is to condemn with loud voices the horror that is dressing one's child up like a bad extra from The Mack. But then, you must consider this...I put it to you that the costumes are created by Marxists, who are using children to further illustrate the the class struggle between proletariat and bourgeoisie.

It is the feathery attire of the Revolution!

I just like saying the word "flapper".

I first read the link as "Chimp Costumes," and thought of this (NSFW.)

homculus - wow that is inexpressibly radical. Especially the sad monkey in the last picture, wow. Thanks for monkeys with blue genitals, mother nature.

In re: pimp + ho costumes for kids, oh well.

Thanks, this will go great with the My First Meth Lab we're getting him for his birthday.

For some reason I can imagine amberglow asking his mom if he can be a hoe for halloween, and his mom running into the other room crying loudly. Poor Amberglow.

The ho costume is quite a bit more modest than the pants and tops girls wear to middle school.

Ayn Marx: You're exactly right. Their "Child Ho Costume" is exactly the same as their "Child Flapper Dress Costume." WHAT A RIPOFF.

We'd previously talked about pimping here.

I asked a question there and got no answer so I'll ask the question again here. Americans, explain it to me like I'm an idiot - what is supposed to be cool about the 'profession' of pimping?

The hats?

dmt gosh I dunno maybe it might be the whole tough street thug thing or maybe you know sex because yeah you're right, it's so weird that people would glamourize criminals and it certainly is a thing that only happens in America, thus putting us Americans in a unique position to explain it.

For some reason I can imagine Keyser Soze asking his mom if he can be a shithead for halloween, and his mom running into the bathroom to fetch the feces. Poor Keyser Soze.

kavasa --

Please turn your TV to BET or MTV.

Not saying that the kind of stuff shown isn't popular in the UK or Canada, for example, but it's certainly at its worst in the US.

dmt ... there was a time, long ago, around the 70s ... when pimps had a certain flamboyant flair ... the way they dressed ... i knew one whose candy apple green suit matched his cadillac ... the way they acted as if they were the coolest people in the world ... and flaunted their wealth ... and attempted to impress people

as usual in america, the package was far more impressive than the actual contents ... and as usual, the kitschification of pimps in mainstream culture is proof that the old time pimp culture is long past dead

we kitschify what we've killed ... or lost

For some reason I can imagine Quonsar asking his mom if he can be a crotchety old gasper for halloween, and his mom telling him he already is one. Poor quonsar.
