    Won a fancy dress competition for halloween dressed as thew Twin towers

    It is in poor taste for sure and pretty poor as outfits go

    Offensive to some for sur ebut it really makes them just look a bit dumb to me tbh

    To most westerners, I’d guess “yes”.

    To me, pretty poor taste, and but barely worthy of comment.

    I’d echo the tasteless comments, but I would add that, if I’d lost someone in 9/11, I probably would find that pretty **** offensive. Would they have gone as an exploding Pan Am flight 103? Or bomb-laden Omagh Vauxhall Cavelier? I’d hope not.

    No more than this, in the scheme of things possibly less;

    Of course they wore the costumes to offend….. unless they are both utterly thick.

    Boston marathon.

    Ahhhh.
    I thought it was a period joke.

    I’m not offended, therefore it’s not offensive.

    Isn’t that how it works?

    Pretty bloody original though, got to give them that.

    I thought it was a period joke.

    You and me both!

    The saddest thing is those stupid girls would only have been about 8 in 2001. Is that how quickly something the true horror of an event like 9/11 slips out of the public consciousness or is it so normal to them that they couldn’t understand it would cause offense. Or are they just terminally stupid bints?

    Nothing says success in fancy dress quite like having to write what it is you’re dressed as on the side.

    I find the lack of a depiction of nano-thermite or whatever the **** it is that the truthers are fantasising about today offensive.

    I found the Last of the Summer Wine wanted posters in the aftermath of the London bombings funny. Laughing at horrible stuff is what humour was invented for.

    Doesn’t offend me. In poor taste yes, but personally I found my particularly hairy mate dressed as Lara Croft much more offensive.

    Yes, the crashing plane and flames is particularly offensive

    Not even a tiny bit offended.

    I am the only one to find it overwhelmingly sexually arousing?

    Not that offensive really in its context. I guess the people at the event didn’t find it that offensive otherwise it wouldn’t have won.

    I guess the media will now publicise to all the “rent a mob” brigade who can be offended and outraged at something they would never otherwise have been aware.

    Seem as if one of the students dads was a pilot in the usa at the time of the plane crash, and he is reported as saying he is not happy and will be having a word with his daughter.

    How is any of this news ?

    Two people nobody knows go to a party.
    Something that some people may have found offensive if they were there happened, but they weren’t.
    Someone’s dad is a pilot and isn’t happy.

    My give a shit’ometeter must be broken because it hasn’t moved.

    offensive – yes
    GAS – not really
    sad they for any publicity really

    Those two remind of a girl that Bobby Davro got on stage once. He turned to her and said, “I would like to FU stupid,” and just as the girl started to smile he added, ” But I see that someone has beaten me to it.” I have never worked in an environment where you could get away with that. 😉

    Come to think of it, it was pretty offensive too!!!

    Takes plebs minds off 450,000 refused dole this year for not looking for a job,

    mass redundancies in 3 shipyards,

    bullying at a major hospital and a serious coverup by failed management,

    mass protests last night in london, and manchester and other places round the world,

    and lots of other news,but then you can choose what is news and what isnt,and comment on it , cant you.

    I guess things just look less offensive from a distance. In this case, a couple of hundred years makes it OK to dress a child to look like a man responsible for some 4 million deaths. Maybe Prince Harrys great-great grandchildren will get away with the nazi uniform.

    Exactly.
