How to Know If Your Halloween Costume Will Piss People Off

Just answer a few simple questions.

It's Halloween day, which means you're probably just thinking about what costume you're going to wait until this evening to get like the last-minute person you are.  But while you're in a hurry, you may need a little help to make sure you don't end up on the wrong side of the internet come November 1st, because all the "sexy cop" costumes will be sold out and you're going to have to get a little creative.  Of course, we're here to help.  If you want a costume that won't piss a lot of people off, make sure you answer no to the following questions regarding your costume.  Halloween is supposed to be fun and games, but there are ways you can take it too far.  Unless you want to take it too far.  But that's a story for another day.  Without further ado, here's a very short list of questions to ensure the Halloween PC police don't find you:


Is your costume of someone who died within the last year?

Does your costume represent someone suffering from a debilitating disease?

Do you have to change your ethnicity to pull it off?


Did the person you're impersonating say something very offensive in public recently?

Is your costume of either a victim or the suspect of a nationally covered tragedy?

Is it of Caitlyn Jenner?


Is your costume of someone who killed an innocent animal? (See title picture)

Does it have anything to do with a sex offender?


Will you have to say, "It's just a costume." more than once when people see what you have on?

Would you resemble "Clock Boy" in any shape, form, or fashion?


Were any of your responses to the previous questions a lie?


If you answered yes to any of these questions, don’t say I didn’t warn ya.
