I'm only offended by the low quality. Tom Cruise has had more convincing beards.

Gyrfalcon: Insensitive? Not really.

Dumb? Yes, very much.

Profitable? Probably.

So I went GIS'ing for the Zombie Osama bin Laden gun-range target. Yes, there's a company that makes one; it had actually been their number-one seller for years before he even died.

As I was looking for one of a suitable size, I found a Joffrey Baratheon target.

I'm not sure whether to laugh or to cry.

I don't think this costume was pulled because of "cultural sensitivity." I think the much more likely reason is that some redneck is going to shoot a kid wearing one of these costumes and shout, "I got him! I got Osama bin Laden! I'm gonna be a hero!"

Wal-Mart was selling this!  And also Sears and Amazon.com, and they all stopped, but Blame the great Satan: Wal-Mart!

So why is it "insensitive" ??
Other dead people have costumes. (Abe Lincoln, Elvis, Micheal Jackson, etc.)

I say sell the Osama costume with some Navy Seal outfits.
