Good idea or a bad idea?

I recently showed my brother this: http://hipsterhitler.com/

He thinks its hilarious, and I think its partly because hes a little whiny teenage hipster himself.

He wants to dress up for halloween as HIPSTER hitler (not normal hitler, if that makes a difference)

    While I find it to be a hilarious idea, I don't think it's a good one.  Hipster or normal hitler, either way it's hilter.  Only appropriate at themed halloween parties, I think.

    Bad idea. I didn't think the comic was that funny either.

    Nebb - I think that is really, really funny - but I think if he goes out there dressed like that he could get his ass kicked.  I don't think everyone has seen Hipster Hitler and will appreciate the funny.  He'll either have to explain his halloween costume to everyone ad nauseum all night or, like I said before... get his ass kicked.

    I just think that looks more like Hipster Charlie Chaplin.

    I say bad idea. If he were going to a friend's halloween party and he knew everyone, and knew they'd "get it", I'd say fine. But who knows. I wouldn't take the chance.

    I think it's a bad idea. I didn't think the comic was funny, to be honest, and I would bet a lot of people wouldn't get it. Plus, I don't think dressing up like Hitler, hipster or otherwise, is ever funny, but that's just me.

    I have a friend who likes to be an asshole on Halloween.

    He went as dead Steve Irwin with a sting ray stinger in his chest one year.  Another year he dressed as the 35W bridge collapse.

    I have a friend who is latino and had a beard. During 9/11, a lot of hicks would yell to him, "Go Home!" and the like, thinking he was Arabic. That Halloween he dressed up as Osama Bin Laden and my other friend was Abraham Lincoln, it was so funny to see them drinking together all night.

    No pictures, sadly - but basically, he was wearing grey sweats and he'd spray painted grey pieces of styrofoam tacked onto his clothes that were painted like a highway - and then he had little hot wheels cars hanging off of him all over the place.

    It was the Halloween after it had happened and it was like... man... some of us knew people on that bridge.  And people died.  Not cool.

    I voted no, mainly because he's a teenager.  While I'm all for freedom of expression, I think that with school (assuming he will wear the costume near school) and with bullying issues, I would pass on this. 

    Personally, I think it's tasteless, anyway, but people have the right to dress up as whatever they want (not in school, but at parties, etc).

    Yeah Hitler just never works.

    That is as bad as a high school acquaintance of Mike's who came to a party dressed as a grand wizard of the KKK. Thankfully people flipped on him.

    He got a drink thrown on him. He was also shunned from parties for years. In fact, we heard he is coming to a thanksgiving party this year and we were shocked. Should be interesting. The thing is, he wasn't even young and stupid. We were 23.

    Hopefully, because people don't tend to dress up at Thanksgiving parties, he won't be too bad.

    MM - That sucks. I really dislike those people who seem to go out of their way to be assholes. I don't get the point in being like that.

    Nates - I made a Native American head dress for a school project several years back. If I still had it, I would totally wear it with you.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Good idea or a bad idea? : Off topic, but I think you guys will appreciate this:  We wear feathers, pilgrim hats, and even some random animal masks at Thanksgiving.  In my family, the children all have to perform something at holidays.  It's usually a skit at Thanksgiving.  Last year in the skit, my 7 year old niece playing "Lakota Princess Eats Many Turkey Legs" Informed the Pilgrim (my 18 year old brother) that she though bringing rats with the plague was a poor trade for corn and that he should "go back to your country with the other white folks."  She then threatened to cut off his knees if he didn't tell her the meaning of life.  He responded that the answer is 24.  My mother was NOT amused. It's much more sedate at the other holidays with songs, dance, and talents.  Thanksgiving brings out the crazy in my family.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Good idea or a bad idea? : Haha, I love that! I have Native American heritage and so my FB status for Columbus Day was "Celebrate Comlumbus Day the right way: Just go into someone's house and tell them you live there now.

    We don't have Columbus Day.  it's Native American day here. So The People can celebrate the coming of the beginning of the end?  Leif Ericson found America WAY before Columbus.  By like, 500 years.

    Our Grandpa is Sioux.  We get a lot of conflicting white man vs. native info.  usually yelled at the top of our lungs until my mother turns red from embarrassment and starts hitting the wine.

    Thanksgiving is at our house this year and the rumor is that the skit will be loosely based on a cross between the Pocahontas and Harry Potter movies.  There may or may not be a working title of "He-who-must-not-be-names sets the white people straight."  Don't tell my mom.  She'll get heart palpitations.
