Appall your friends on Halloween with Skeleboner!

Spirit Halloween, Halloween Express and Fun World are really rolling the bones with this one. Maybe Skeleboner, the skeleton one-sie with a "boner", will be a big hit, or maybe it will blow up in their faces. The Skeleboner costume comes with not just a faux phallus between the legs (It is not designed for the wearer to put their real phallus in) but a hand pump to achieve the full skeletal erection.

Now, you know that drunk, date-rapey assholes are going to use this inflated stiffy to whack, slide on and poke the ladies at bars and parties. Will Spirit Halloween and company be culpable when harrassment charges are filed against such assholes? I guess no more than Budweiser or a duct tape company. I know I'm overly sensitive on this one but it seems like a bad idea for everyone, unless a lady wears it for satirical reasons. Yeah, probably still a bad idea.

Don't get me wrong, I do think it's a bit funny but only in the hands of a guy who makes the joke about himself and doesn't use it as carte blanche to prod women and be a dick about it. Now that I think about it, I suppose it's no more dangerous than a guy's actual boner.

I just checked through the comments on the Spirit Halloween website and it appears that Skeleboner has been on the market for at least 10 years now. One of the comments talks about how one parent's first-grader was the life of the party. Skeleboner does come in teen sizes. Solid parenting there.
