I had heard from a friend that searching on Amazon.com for "terrorist costume" would yield but one costume — a Barack Obama mask.
Figuring it was a joke, I had to try it for myself. After entering "terrorist costume" in to the "Apparel & Accessories" search box at Amazon, however, the search results were less than funny. Sure enough, there was but one result, a Barack Obama mask selling for $49.95.
One commenter on the mask’s product page notes:
OMG when submitting this review, here are the Amazon Tag Suggestions they provided for me: "Tag Suggestions (click to add): obama, barack, liar, socialist, costume, dignity, terrorist, creep, marxist"
Stay classy amazon.com. I hope you have a lousy holiday season.
UPDATE: Since this story has been making a buzz on teh internets, Amazon.com has fixed the "terrorist" listing. I wonder if they will issue an apology?
