On The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, comedienne Kristen Shaw made a guest appearance as a correspondent to discuss the "serious" issue of the sexy food costume.

"The fact is that women get this one night, this one night out of the whole year out to be viewed as sexual objects - and we get to choose what kind! You can be a sexy pirate, a sexy nurse, an even sexier nurse..." she quips. "When my mom was growing up in the oppressive olden days she only had two options for a Halloween costume: sexy secretary or sexy meter-maid. In these modern, liberated times a woman is free to be a sexy whatever the hell she wants!"
Cue: Sexy pizza. And banana. And bacon. And whatever other food you could possibly think of.

While Shaw is obviously poking fun at the insane stylings and inaccuracies of women's food costumes, it got us thinking: How different are the male versions of these costumes?
The difference was insane. Instead of a goofy burger suit with an oversized bun, women get the option of choosing a satin skin-tight dress with lines of colored fabrics posing as the "meat" of the burger.
Instead of being a big puffy ball of purple stuffing, a grape costume for women is a barely there purple and vine piece that just covers the necessities. And the costumes only get crazier from there.

We pulled together 5 comparable food costumes that show just how ridiculous female food costumes can get. While of course no one is forcing any woman to wear these revealing garbs, it is funny to see the striking differences between gender-specific costumes.

Ladies, if you were hoping to look like an actual M&M, we suggest you don't buy this costume. However, fellas, if you want to look like the tasty chocolate candy, be sure to check this get-up out!

The guy's costume is pretty convincing, with a shaped soft box and a comfy black under-garb to keep him warm in October. The lady? A form fitting, super revealing printed dress that doesn't look like a costume at all!

This costume totally lacks any resemblance to a burger at all. Burgers are hot by themselves without any help from lace or satin!

The "carrot" part of this woman's costume doesn't even cover her dress! Give us the carrot suit any day!
Pizza (pictured above)
Everyone loves pizza, and sure, this girl does make it look even better. But how does that even compare to the awesome accuracy if this gentleman's pizza slice?
