There are so many options for Halloween costumes and so many of them seem to be awful. This year, we’ll be giving awards out to the best of the worst the holiday has to offer.
First up for 2013, this Osama Bin Laden costume, which was deemed offensive enough to be pulled from the shelves of Wal Mart, RiteAid and removed from Amazon’s website. Should you be boneheaded enough to wear it on October 31st, expect to be shunned by friends and strangers alike. Because Halloween is about many things, but dressing up as “one of the most infamous terrorists of all time” isn’t one of them. [$52.99, Halloween Costumes]
If you wanna put something in your a**hole, you may as well use an a**hole, right? The Assama bin Laden butt plug is a lovely, pink-hued rendering of Osama bin Laden. If sticking this terrorist where the sun don’t shine is still too good for him, you are in luck. CelebrityButt-Plugs.com has many other fine other butt plugs on the way, like Sarah Impalin, Barack O-Bum-A, Buttney Spears and The Sperminator. I guess someone decided “Lady CaCa” and “Sarah Jessica Pooper” were too literal? [The Gloss] Keep reading »
Today in tastelessness: the Navy SEAL raid on Osama bin Laden‘s Pakistan compound will be sexily immortalized forever in “This Ain’t Bin Laden XXX,” a new parody porn debuting this summer by Hustler. An Osama bin Laden porn is something the al-Qaeda top dog would have appreciated, said Hustler’s Video Director of Operations Rob Smith. “We’re pretty sure from what we’ve heard that bin Laden was a big fan of Hustler,” Smith said. (Now that’s a celebrity endorsement!) “He was looking at porn, now porn is looking at him. See, it all comes full circle.” You almost had me at the promise of Navy SEALs, but really, I can’t get into a porn about someone who murdered over 3,000 people in my country. Also, that beard. I would like to read the casting notice for the Osama bin Laden parody porn, though. [The Daily What] Keep reading »
Remember that iconic photo of President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the White House Situation Room watching the raid in Pakistan which killed Osama bin Laden? (Top photo!) Well, a conservative Hasidic Jewish newspaper in Brooklyn for Hasids completely edited Hillary Clinton and the other woman in the Situation Room out of the photo. (See bottom photo!) They’re gone entirely! It’s a Situation Room full of dudes.
In Hasidic culture, unrelated men and women do not socialize with each other; in some communities, men and women don’t even work alongside each other. Some say Hillary Clinton and counterterrorism analyst Audrey Tomasen were Photoshopped out because the Hasids didn’t want to depict women in positions of authority or because the women mixing with men with whom they are not related is sexually suggestive. (Hillary’s pantsuits are so sexually suggestive.) The newspaper, Der Zeitung, has not commented on to why they erased the women from the pics. But who cares what their reason is? Erasing two women from a moment that will go down in the history books — that they experienced — is sexism, plain and simple.
