With Halloween falling on a weekday this year, a lot of folks celebrated the annual ghoul fest this past weekend. Costume creativity run from the most elaborate to the most crude.
And then there is this gem of an ensemble.
Remember the Asiana Flight 214 Disaster at the San Fransisco Airport? Well, three men took the liberty of dressing up as the pilots from the doomed flight. Any good costume ensemble calls for authenticity. These guys had name tags with the names, “Ho Lee Fuk,” “Sum Ting Wong” and “Wi Tu Lo”. Those were the same names used for an on-air racist prank during a news segment reported on Bay Area television station, KTVU.
According to web sites, Asian Angry Man and Gawker, the photo was taken at a Halloween bash held at a Chicago gay bar, Sidetrack.
But wait…there’s more!
There is an un confirmed report these guys are flight attendants for United Airlines in real life! Wow, I sure many Asians will feel as ease when they are ‘flying the friendly skies’. Yes, you can get a dose of bloody racist humor for the extra fees you are paying for your luggage being checked in.
Seriously folks, with Halloween looming, here are some tips for wearing costumes in public.
- Think twice about your choice of costumes. Libertarians will be crying fowl over the First Amendment rights. Wearing a Black Face or dressed up in Asian garb with a name tag that reads, “Suk Sum Dik” will not help you make friends with many communities with the exception of the Ku Klux Klan.
- Everyone is a Camera Whore. We are living in an age of Selfies, people. Everyone loves to pout and give their best Duck Face impression. However, there are plenty of people with Smart Phones. If you are doing something incredibly stupid at a party like these guys, all it takes is by pressing the “Send” button and your reputation is changed instantly.
- The whole world will know about you thanks to Social Media. Once someone puts an image such as the one described in this article, the news will spread fast and furious. Even if you delete the photo from your Facebook profile, it will still come back and haunt you. The information can be traced via internet archives.
- For goodness sake, USE YOUR HEAD! You pull this sort of a stunt, not only you will look like an idiot, but you may be the recipient of death threats, lose your job and your life will pretty much be gone into a rusty toilet bowl.
Go and have fun on Halloween, but please use common sense.
Remember: “Stupidity is a Social Disease”.
