How could they possibly believe this was a good idea, and how could they be awarded first prize... the mind boggles at their stupidity.

Is it any worse than royalty dressing up as Nazis?

Did I say it was acceptable for Royals to dress up as Nazi's?

Possibly the quickest thread hijack in history.

Bloody autocorrect! Edited to say "dress up" though fess up may be equally appropriate...

Fancy Dress is fancy dress......................

Jewish groups complained that people dressing up as Concentration camps survivors while Jewish School felt acceptable to dress up as Nuns and Bishops..................

Gay groups complaining that people dressed up as gay people when they were not, well who knows on that one.

Police complaining that group dressed up as Muslims with bombs attached.........never figured out whether it was because of religion or bomb thing.

What do you mean by "the doors" ?

The girls do look quite similar. Now if they actually were twins, that would be very funny.

Take as much offence as you want. Plenty of it about if you can be bothered.
