    Yeah, Las Vegas wasn't the first place they showed up, they are in a lot of cities.

    I wish they'd get rid of every one of them, I work in times square and they are a big nuisance. They hover in packs and if some family wants a picture with 1 of them they end up with 2 or 3 of them. They're even worse than the fake monks!

    They used to not bother me but the overabundance of them now is slightly annoying.

    Creative and well done costumes earn a nod of approval. But now people throw together shitty looking outfits and try to hustle. Overkill.
