      Hey drbj :) One tired frog here! It's stupid o' clock in the morning and I need to hit the hay. I giggled at the skunk costume, thought it a funny one to feature. Boys fancy dress is big business and there's so much choice - I didn't think anyone would notice one small and furry skunk ;)

      The gorilla costume, yes. The penguin costume, yes. But do you think many small boys want to dress up in the costume of a skunk?

      Only if they are already antisocial - them mom and dad have a problem.
