Random! Analogies!

July 15th, 2008 · 6 Comments

Dressing as a suicide bomber for Halloween is offensive! It’s like dressing as a Klansman! Or wearing blackface! How are those analogies remotely related? Shut up and be offended!

    Random! Flashback! To 2006?!?!!

    I think Prince Harry has done an empirical study of at least one subset of this particular question.

    I had a good friend who had a really good suicide bomber costume he wore to our halloween party. Won the prize for the most original (I came dressed up as a nerd–taped glasses, suspenders, Erkle-walk, etc–and all I got was comments like “why didn’t you wear a costume?”). Of course, he had Groucho Marx style eyebrows, and everyone who knew him knew that he was ripping on suicide bombers, so maybe that makes a difference…

    Or maybe Glenn just needs to unwad his panties.

    Glenn Reynolds makes really nice money from wadded panties.

    I’m sure you remember Halloween of 2001, when a mutual friend of ours bought a “Desert Prince” costume and paired it with an eye patch for a very convincing Mullah Omar costume.

    I wonder if anyone wore a pirate costume in 1900 and partygoers replied “too soon”
