This time of year, borderline softcore comes right to your mailbox, unsolicited, tucked between the pizza-chain coupons and drug-store-chain flyers.

I'm talking about flyers for "party" and costume stores advertising Halloween costumes.

You can depend on a page or two of what are called "fantasy" or "hot" or even "adult" costumes. These feature many photos of women who look like enhanced exotic dancers in provocative poses, wearing tight and/or flesh-baring costumes.

A girl pirate in a push-up ... a circa-'90s Britney Spears type ... a girl officer in hot pants and fishnets dangling handcuffs ... a naughty nurse ... a naughty Little Red Riding Hood ... a naughty referee ... a naughty cabbie (?) ... and so on.

I'm not trying to sound sanctimonious about this. I know many guys and gals -- myself included -- who get a kick out of these flyers. They make good "water cooler" fodder. Me 'n' some friends were picking our favorites. One pal called this "the most wonderful time of the year." I concur. All this, plus candy corn and scary movies?

laughing really hard - "the most wonderful time of the year." Isn't that like a line from a Christmas song? Picture the video w/the hot babes/fishnets/handcuffs with that Xmas song playing in the backgroung......

Good one.
