Retailers Begin Stocking ‘No Deal Brexit’ Halloween Costumes

20 Oct 2018

 

 

In an effort to make this the scariest Halloween in living memory, costume shops around the Irish border have began selling items allowing customers to spend parties dressed as a no deal Brexit.

 

The costume will be similar to the costumes with artificial legs that allow a person to appear as if they are a cowboy riding a horse. In this instance though, the cowboy will be replaced by Lord Snooty from the Beano and the horse will be replaced by a dying Irishman.

 

This comes after last year’s hugely successful Leave and Remain couples’ costumes sold so well. In that instance, Remain was represented by simply wearing your own clothes while Leave involved going to the party stark naked with a nail hammered through your wrist.

 

Prominent Brexiteers were also going to get their own costumes depicting their likenesses but this idea was shelved. It was thought that for Boris Johnson, consumers could simply bleach the hair of the regular clown costume and Jacob Rees-Mogg could be achieved by not being invited to the party at all.

 

Due to concerns about incoming trade restrictions, the company responsible for the outfits will be moving production to its factories in France.
