Slightly off Target

OK.  Lets get something clear.

The rugrats are off to school.  If they don’t have their school supplies by now, they’re doomed.  Doomed to a life of poor job opportunities like bathroom attendant, drug dealer lookout, or….God help them…. politician.

So, lets get rid of the back-to-school supplies and put out some Halloween merchandise

Yah hear me Target?  Yeah, you!  Who else do you think I’m talkin to?  Yer the only one with a friggin bullseye right smack on ya!

The local Target has a few Halloween items, but the main area is still taken up with the accursed educational swag.   Here’s what I saw:

The candy aisle is getting stocked

The small assassins will be well attired.

Instead of dressing your dog in some  humiliating costume this year, just buy it some of these Halloween-themed rawhide treats.  Your pet will thank you (and not maul you in your sleep).

There were more Halloween items in the $1 are at the front of the store than anywhere else.  Here are a few:

Take your pick of ice cube trays.  The red ones look like fingers, black is spider-themed.  I don’t know exactly what the orange is… looks like eyes and ears.

Cutesy Halloween pails… hang in there, it gets better….

2013-09-03_13-02-05_578 (1024x577)

Your standard humorous Halloween signs.  I think the “”Bummer” sign is the best of this lot.

2013-09-03_13-07-02_218 (985x1024)Ahhh!  Now we’re talking!  Shot glasses!.  These are plastic and come in boxes of 2 for $1.  Not bad for a themed shot glass that you don’t mind if anyone steals.

2013-09-03_13-07-06_890 (1024x1020) Same as the skull glass above, but slightly less cool.2013-09-03_13-07-25_15 (908x1024)And finally “test tube” shot glasses.  I know it’s been a long time since high school chemistry class, but these don’t look like test tubes.  Still not bad for a party, or a mad-scientist laboratory lit by black-light (not sure if these glow or not).

Let hope that the aisles are loaded with more spooky things soon.

Meanwhile, ScreaminScott says “dig it up!
