You Can Be the Kid Arrested for Bringing a Clock to School This Halloween

October is here and the Halloween shopping extravaganza is in full force, with classic costumes, takes on celebrities and political figures, and, of course, stupid stupid ideas.

The latest is from, which features 14-year-old Ahmed Mohamed who was famously arrested by police in Irving, Texas for trying to impress his teacher with a clock he built. 

They're calling it the "Clock Boy Meme Costume." This travesty can be purchased for the low price of $80. The costume has accessories, too, including an aluminum case, "clock guts," an LCD screen, clear glasses, a NASA shirt and handcuffs.

However, as notes, "just be careful who you show it to!"
