I’m not at all surprised it was controversial, but when I heard about it from a friend, I thought it sounded hilarious. Of course I do have a really twisted sense of humor.

And… is now the time to admit I considered dressing up in a costume just like that for Halloween? I chose against it mostly because I decided I didn’t have the patience for all the outrage. It’s not that I think Steve Irwin was evil or anything; it’s just that he was so ripe for parody. He seemed as if he was the kind of guy who could appreciate that about himself. Like they said over at Adrants:

Yeah, okay. There is absolutely nothing funny about a guy who spends his life wrestling crocodiles and gets killed by a creature that isn’t even known for aggression toward humans.

But again: I have a twisted sense of humor. But again: I have no patience.

So I dressed up as a crazy cat woman instead. I can make fun of myself all I want.

    Yeah, more like the latter… but with a bit of the former for fun. The way I described it when anyone asked what I was supposed to be was “a crazy cat lady who turned into a cat.” That gave me the opportunity to wear cute cat ears and a tail, and be a little sexy. Meeeeowww!

    I for one thought the Steve thing was funny. And if you watch the episode, Satan says to the guy “you know, it’s a little soon to be dressing up like that, you’re offending the guests” etc–even South Park was saying it was too soon! People just like to find things to be upset about.

    Cat lady sounds divine!

    I was at a party on Saturday and saw someone dressed up as Steve Irwin with a big stuffed ray.

    It was extremely fortuitous as it was a very cute girl and gave me an excuse to go over & compliment her costume. 🙂

    So Kate..any pics of you in the Cat-woman get-up?

    Personally, I think it might be too soon for the sting-ray costume, but on the other hand, I admit I laughed when I read this.

    maybe i’m sick as well!

    See, it would have to be a very cute girl. I’d gamble on my cuteness only so far… and I don’t think it extends far enough for that costume at this point in time. 🙂
