Top 8 Halloween costumes to avoid this year: #3 Steve Jobs

TIME Magazine features an article, “Yes, It’s Too Soon: 8 Halloween Costumes to Avoid This Year,” and among the eight listed is Apple confounder Steve Jobs:

Eight Halloween costumes to avoid this year:
1. Amy Winehouse
2. Muammar Gaddafi

3. Steve Jobs: Don’t let the ease of choosing Steve Jobs as your Halloween costume — or the internet telling you it’s a great idea — cloud your judgment. Grabbing a black turtleneck, a pair of faded blue jeans and some wire-framed glasses seems like an easy way to honor Jobs, but it really will come across oh-so-differently to anyone else struggling with cancer, especially so close to the passing of Jobs. Instead, try dressing up as a giant iPod. Or, better yet, one huge earbud. — Tim Newcomb

4. Anders Breivik
5. Amanda Knox
6. The Euro
7. Osama bin Laden
8. Casey (or Caylee) Anthony

  1. Not only is it too soon and tasteless, but those of us still in mourning and reading all that the media produces, including Walter Isaacson’s biography, would be highly offended at having to view Steve wannabes. Ick.

  2. I totally disagree. Steve jobs’ iconic “uniform” has nothing to do with his health condition. Maaaaybe, just maaaybe is will make people recollect his recent passing and make that correllation–but doesn’t that outweigh showing your admiration and fandom by dressing as he did? I’m mean, people like him, they like him a lot.

    I don’t think he was buried in the the outfit was he?

    1. …AND SINCE WHEN THE HELL WAS HALLOWEEN ABOUT AVOIDING HURTING PEOPLE’S FEELINGS?!?!?!?!?………………………………………………………………………buncha tech-hippy-politically-correct-twats!!!!!!

  3. he acts like people would be walking around with a fake bloody liver hanging out of a torn out abdomen of the iconic black turtle neck.. hhmm.. i think i have my costume!!! j/k.

    and a few other people on that list absolutely deserve no respect.. who is this chucklehead author?

  4. What a retarded article for Time to do. How the heck would one dress up like Amanda Knox? And no one would want to dress up like the Euro and even if they did, no one would give a dump.
