Tasteless Halloween Costumes of 2008
You laughed, didn't you... and I do mean you must have laughed really, really hard cause death is just so funny...
Granted, this is not headline news and it's just a way for this couple to get attention and get their "one day of fame" in the blog world.
"This guy and girl dressed up as one of the twin towers and a plane for Halloween, when the girl was asked if she thought she would offend anyone she replied, “No, it’s cool, my aunt died on the 64th floor, and it was a conspiracy anyway.” Are you kidding me? I’m all for grossly offensive jokes but not when it’s taken THAT far."The comments under this picture on the site called The Dirty were angry about this costume... not so much offended for themselves but angry for those who died during the terrorist attack. This site has some, shall we say, questionable photos and people are not offended by much... but this was different.
Question: How is it that since this woman knows someone who died and she thinks it was a conspiracy it's okay to joke about those who died?
Another Question: Would she dress up to look like her aunt's killer if she were killed during a home invasion? What if her aunt was run over by a train... would she dress up like a train?
This isn't a way of honoring someone you love... it's a way of mocking their death and saying you don't really give a damn.
Seems to me (and several others) she's just another inconsiderate person who hasn't dealt with the truth of the matter... terrorists killed her aunt and if she cared for the woman at all, she would not have dressed up in such a manner.
There are a lot of things people joke about that are really inappropriate but we pooh-pooh them and shrug our shoulders and sometimes even giggle a little. But I don't see anything humorous about death... I'm not going to laugh at jokes about 911. I'm not going to laugh about the things Hitler did. I'm not going to laugh about thousands of people dying in an earthquake. Death is not funny and if you think it is... truly, get yourself to the hospital and get a lobotomy.
No matter who you happen to think is to blame for the Twin Towers coming down... do you think it's funny that all those people died?
NOTE: When I first viewed this photo, I was just looking primarily at "her". Stop and look at "him" and tell me what you see. I'll tell you what I see... I see that they've pasted bodies falling off his costume to imitate the actual victims who jumped out of the building. WOW... somehow that makes this thing just that much FUNNIER, doesn't it?
