I hope the guy who wears that ends up being shot.... then the irony tag can get a good work out.

We're still supposed to buy-in to the Sideshow Bob name?
He's still only a suspect?

Hated, or constantly asked by everybody you meet that night who exactly you're supposed to be?

Oh, boo-farking-hoo. It's Halloween. People are supposed to dress up as monsters, unless someone gets offended, is that it? Slutoween costumes are far more offensive--no imagination. Also the herpes.

"the llama"?

was he caught camping?

Just... awful.

Last year I wanted to go as Zombie Al Davis. Now there's a costume that won't offend anyone.
But it was too expensive to pull off. I wanted to get a Raiders jersey, bobble-heads of all the major quarterbacks, rip the heads off, put some fake blood on 'em and hang 'em from the shoulder pads.

Instead of groaning "Braaaains!" I was going to groan "Braaaaady!"

Halloween, in and of itself, is a celebration of evil. I'd actually be more upset with people who DON'T dress up as the Aurora killer.

Freedom of speech, or freedom from being offended. You can't have both, folks.

So, I can dress up as Vlad the Impaler and that's okay since it was years ago?

I normally don't condone violence, but this guy - and anyone else who wears this costume - should get poked in the eye with a sharp stick that has dog doody on it.

But you just know there are plenty of douchebags out there who think they're edgy and oh-so-outrageous. Just like in 2007 when a bunch of fnckwagons here in NoVA dressed up as "Virginia Tech Massacre Victims"

Perhaps you should remove the 'daring' from your user name, being that you're oh so offended at a farking costume. Howsabout when movies parody Hitler? Is that wrong too, because Jews? Again, it's HALLOWEEN. MONSTERS.

Sure you can call him a douchebag, but them I'm going to call you a douchebag for violating his freedom of speech, then somebody else will come along and call me a douchebag for saying that's a violation of free speech, then somebody calls that guy a douchebag for voting for fartbongo, then somebody calls that guy a douchebag for herpaderpa teahadist, then somebody compares somebody to Hitler, somebody invokes Godwin but everybody ignores it, somebody says the Nazis were leftwing socialists and to "read a book", somebody quotes Noam Chomsky and we move to discussing Mossadeq and the Iranian revolution, then somebody repeats "glass parking lot" over and over...

The point is, nobody gives a shiat about your "criticism". Just wear the farking mask.

Free speech, my friend.

Neither offensive videos about Mohammed nor twunts dressed as murderers justify a violent reaction. Throw a slushie over the dude, if you must.

It already does that. It changes James Holmes into Sideshow Bob, and Sideshow Bob into James Holmes.

I don't understand why we give a mass murderer an awesome nickname.

Sideshow Bob is hilarious. He's Kelsey Grammar playing Fraiser trapped in a clown. Some of my favorite Simpsons episodes involve Sideshow Bob.

Thankfully it only seems to be Fark that's trying to label this guy. Maybe some people think its funny and belittling to call this guy the name of clown, but I think its the opposite. Sideshow Bob is too good to be even remotely associated with this guy.

Still, an awful lot of people think that free speech means freedom from criticism by private citizens.

Okay, now I'm confused. I thought "is the 3 silent" was just a pretty good joke, especially ignoring as it did the accidental omission of the "r" from "Fesc3po".
Am I an idiot? Is this a "that's the joke" moment?

Not sure if trolling.

Jack-O-lanterns are intended to scare AWAY evil spirits. Originally they were carved from turnips. The modern holiday is a mash-up of harvest festivals and festivals/festivals honoring the dead (like the Mexican Dia De Los Muertes).

I'm guessing you've never really researched the history of many holidays have you... definitely not this one.

So, by your logic, i guess that means Easter is when we celebrate the crucifixion of Jews? President's Day is when we celebrate assassinations, and wearing black on 9-11 is in moratorium to the deceased high-jackers.
