Penn State continues the slide toward University of Miami territory. From MSNBC:
Two Penn State students have re-opened a wound after they costumed themselves forr a Halloween party as victims of last spring's shooting massacre at Virginia Tech.
Photos of two Penn State students, partying in Virginia Tech paraphernalia marked with bullet holes and fake blood, made their way onto the social networking site Facebook.
Awesome. They interviewed one of the students.
"It's not that it was funny," the student said of the costumes. "It's that we are notorious and infamous and very popular in the state college, so we have to do things that push the envelope just for shock value," he said.
Okay, dude, shut the fuck up.
He went on to imply that Virginia Tech students' public displays of grief less than a year after the massacre are at least partly for show.
"This is a group of college students who now think it's trendy to be upset about their friends being killed," said the Penn student.
Seriously, shut your fucking mouth.
He said those who objected to the costumes were blowing things out of proportion.
"The thing is, everybody's making a big stink about Virginia Tech. Virginia Tech was 32 deaths out of the 26 thousand that happen in America everyday," he said. "That's the problem with college students. They all live in an ivory tower of privilege. They don't understand, when it all boils down to it, it's someone wearing a costume."
I think this trumps last month's Penn State incident, when frat boys threw trash and full beer cans at fans from the fraternity's Ohio State chapter. You stay classy, State College.
