Scenario 1: The children don’t know what Breaking Bad is, but you, their parents, think it would be hilarious to dress them up as Walter White and Jesse Pinkman for Halloween. While it’s not particularly unusual or alarming for parents to use their children as unwitting props for their own amusement, you should remember that in this case you are dressing your children as murderous methamphetamine producers. Just remember that. That’s kind of a weird choice. They are your children. But OK. You make the call. They are your children.
Scenario 2: The children don’t know what Breaking Bad is, but you thought it would be hilarious to dress them up as Walter White and Jesse Pinkman for something other than Halloween. This scenario is similar to the previous scenario, but it’s a little weirder, I mean, Halloween is one (already questionable) thing, but this is what? An off-season costume party at a friend’s house? Maybe you should just get a babysitter. Purim? Come on. I’m starting to think you have an unhealthy obsession with the show to be quite honest. You couldn’t even wait for Halloween, as if Halloween is even an appropriate time? Look in the mirror.
Scenario 3: The children are huge fans of the show and picked the costumes out themselves and you, as a parent, didn’t want to get in the way of their youthful joy and creativity. Well, here we have a whole bunch of problems. You really need me to list them out? Save it for Judge Judy. I’m just going to call Child Services and let the state handle it at this point. It’s sad, and lord knows the foster parenting system is in no way perfect, but at a certain point you just have to recognize that there’s nothing more you can do and pray that they grow up safe and loved.

  1. Scenario 4: These kids always look like this and Breaking Bad ripped them off.

  2. I’m the one who knocks before coming into Mommy and Daddy’s room.

  3. This makes sense; now that Weeds ended and their Nancy/Andy Botwin costumes are no longer relevant, they have to dress up like SOMETHING!

  4. Last year’s Mad Men theme didn’t go well.

  5. Say what you will, but the older kid NAILED the Heisenberg frown. Shame about the lack of teethface, though.

  6. even if it’s scenario 3, these kids are miles ahead of any of the scenarios being run down in the “When To Dress Your Kids As Juggalos” thread.

  7. They wanted to go as Chris and Snoop from the Wire, so this was actually the safe choice.

  8. At what age do you have to start letting your kids pick their own costumes?

  9. Scenario: You want to become Tumblr-famous but don’t own a cat.

  10. hello i miss ok
