Lead-filled pirate costume is this Halloween's scariest look10/17/2012

Putting a lead button in your mouth can make you sicker than even the most over-the-top Halloween candy binge, so thank officials for finding the costumes before they arrived in Seattle. Mike Milne, a spokesman for U.S. Customs and Border Protection, said the shipper was targeted because of past violations. The costumes, worth around $10,000, will be destroyed. [Source]
