Your Miami Zombie Halloween Costume Is a Terrible Idea, You Dick
|Don't be this guy, for Halloween or ever.|
Of course you do. Everyone does. That was one seriously terrifying, mind-blowingly WTF Miami moment. You couldn't escape it. In bars, at fancy dinners, in the middle of children's birthday parties and new moms' baby showers, all of us in this town wasted full days of our lives analyzing the details of the incident until our brains were numb with gore.
Now, it's Halloween, and you think you're going to blow everyone's minds by dressing up as the Miami Zombie or his victim? You are wrong. And you're probably also kind of a dick. Here's why:
You think you're original? You are not original.
Back in May, when you'd finally processed the horror of the face-eating and were able to shut your eyes at night without seeing that grotesque photo of Ron Poppo's destroyed face in your dreams, you likely had this realization: "Some douchebag is going to be the Miami Zombie for Halloween this year." If you are that douchebag, your realization was more like, "Some awesome guy is going to be the Miami Zombie for Halloween this year!" The point is, we all saw this coming.
Hell, the Miami Zombie made the first page of our "Halloween Costumes Everyone Will Be Wearing" list, right between Honey Boo Boo and Binders Full of Women. No points for creativity, is what we're saying.
You think you're funny? You are not funny.
Here is a list of some things that are funny: George Carlin. Dogs wearing booties. Babies eating lemons. Colonel Meow. Old ladies watching sex tapes. People falling down, especially if they're wearing Ed Hardy apparel.
Here is something that is not funny: The senseless, violent mauling of a human being, resulting in one death and one life forever scarred, both physically and emotionally.
See the difference?
