    Pretty terrible, considering it’s age-istic, celebrates murderers and minimizes folks that are universally regarded for their accomplishments. This shit would never get out the door on my watch.

    Thanks Doctorneos,
    I can’t find better words for it.

    Why all the hate on Doctorneos? It is certainly bad taste to equate Stalin with Ghandi. There are plenty of other mustached people out there that could have been used instead of Stalin (and Che?).

    Are you people for real. Why would you even look at this if your that easily offended. Get the stick out of your collective asses and laugh a little for god sake. you only go around once!

    Fuck, some of the comments really made me hate humanity for a second. Doctorneos; if youre not trolling right now, you should go eat a cock and die. If youre THAT EASILY offended, just dont get out of bed, or better yet, kill yourself, because the real world is FAAAR too harsh for you. This is just a funny article made to make people laugh, (you know, the thing normal people who aren’t sensitive little bitches do everytime they see something amusing) however, it’s precisely your little-girl, overly-sensitive, “crying little bitch” mentality that keeps important topics out of discussion, perpetuates taboos, and basically hinders progress.

    Besides, each and every one of the characteristics, traits, labels (or however the fuck you wanna call ‘em) is actually true. Except perhaps for the geriatric description under the shaven Einstein, in most of the cases both qualities of the person were true. i.e., ghandi was BOTH, a prophet and a protestor; Stalin was both; a communist (granted, a murderer also, but) also a conqueror. So, why the fuck are you offended by objective facts? It’s not like your rich kid, hipster, pseudo-intellectual ass was even remotely affected by what any of them did. So stop ashaming yourself and enjoy a harmless comedy article.

    Thanks Doctorneos, I couldn’t have said it better.

    “Its a fucking joke you over analyzing wanne be smart pathetic loosers, i laughed my ass off” – José

    …you can always tell when a Mexican joins the debate – so much is added to the discourse. We can relax, the deep thinkers are here.

    Mustaches make most of you look like simpletons.
    Yes, I know the idea is to wear the mustache ironically; the super tight pants, over-sized (and unnecessary) glasses, the more arcane the t-shirt the better.
    I actually don’t mind so much the wearing of your parents’ clothes sardonically – hell, beatniks did this 60 years ago.

    But they were often interesting – you likely are not. The sarcastic mustache and clothing belie how interesting you are (or rather aren’t).
    Turns out most of the folks I meet who dress like “white trash” to be clever are no more intelligent or interesting than their redneck counterpart.
    Just sayin’.

    Its not about taking this too seriously its about the childish minds that find this publicly acceptable. Sure its funny some times to a certain extent, but to laugh at such an event publicly and treat it like some kind of golden treasure is not excusable. The true problem lies with the immature being that take this kind of thing to heart. I’ve known quite a few who take it too far, T-shirts of Che Guevara & Joseph stalin being worn by teens, adults, and babies, what kind of world are we living in people. I know some do it without knowing what they stand for, they fail to see what kind of horrid impact some of these figures have had on our world. Then to idolize them in this kind of way misinforms that masses. I’m sure there are some people out there that “think” Hitler and Che were pretty cool guys making light of who they are and their crimes against humanity. Again these people lump themselves “unknowingly” with the same kind of people that would laugh at the sight of your own grandmother being beaten and raped to a Benny hill track set on loop on a snuff shock site.

    Laugh at it if you want to, all I ask it don’t make light of it, and for gods sake don’t idolize it, sheesh.

  9. Che

    I have a Che Guevara shirt… i wear it proudly… you got a problem with that Tommy Gun?! I suggest you all use google and do some research before you talk next time. Seriously, what “kind of horrid impact…had on the world” or “crimes against humanity” did Che do?! Che was actually a Doctor, and came to realize the suffering people faced especially between rich and poor. THAT is why he became a communist, because he believed money was root of evil. THAT is why he went around South America treating poor people for free… Eventually he played a key part in overthrowing a horrible cuban government to try and help the Cuban people. Fidel Castro stayed in Cuban Power and Che moved on to try and help other people, until the good old USA murdered him for trying to enlighten the masses. Why do you think he is called a revolutionary?! look up the word idiot… because he REVOLUTIONIZED, he had an IDEA and acted upon it. the USA also had a REVOLUTION against England and that was fine, but if someone else does it its wrong and we should kill him?! Che is idolized by the people he helped, by the people he wanted to help, so F* you
