Considering some of the offensive Halloween costumes I've paraded in front of my friends and expected them not to sock me in the face, I feel a little awkward calling these kids
douchebags for dressing as Virginia Tech victims. But, as it is my solemn duty to decry idiocy, here goes: what a couple of fucking douchebags.
Living proof that what happens on Facebook doesn't stay on Facebook, these kids got their photos snapped at a party in October and it's taken the last two months for the turds in question to float to the top of the toilet bowl that is national media outlets. And as you'd expect, everyone
took turns saying
they were and then showering attention on them.
Let's drop the pretense for a minute here: they're college students; they're going to do dumb shit and piss everyone off. What even I
can't forgive, however, are the kids' utterly terrible excuses, which I now present in order from least to most offensive:
"A lot of people do crazy, insensitive things. I knew what I was doing was sad. I did it for that reason."
"It's not that it was funny, it's that we are notorious and infamous in the state college, so we have to do things that push the envelope just for shock value."
"Students live in an ivory tower...They are whining and crying, but there is a lot worse going on right now in our world than what happened at Virginia Tech."
