    What a complete ass. This is his halloween costume.





    Warning, some people may not want to see the photo. (Mods, I understand if you need to adjust this, sorry for the trouble.)

    I agree, but it doesn't mean it happened. People can do very poweful things with PS


    After looking at it again it could be someone else, I mean yes if I had to take one shot on who it was I'd say Maher, but its possible its someone who looks like him

    It's in bad taste but wow, Bill Maher has not aged well at all. He looks like he's about 80 years old and stoned.

    If i had to make a strong stance on it, I'd agree. Irwin was a great guy, and doesn't deserve to be mocked(atleast about his death), however some show grief differently, and some are simply arses about it!

    Bill Maher is a schmuck. Between this and the post-9/11 "martyrs are heroes" comment, he's at about 14:58 on the fame clock.

    Wow so it really his bill maher - he looks like total ****. He was probably just downed his 10th tequila shot and was well into his second 8ball when this pic was taken.

    Anyway any celebrit'ys death is fair game for comedians, always has been.

    Too soon IMO. I'm a fan of Maher (sometimes), but he does say and do a lot of things that bug me. He's just trying to be controversial. Definitely a low point.

    (he's a libertarian BTW, politically incorrect/free market/low taxes and all, not a liberal... just in case any of you are going there)

    What was clever of South Park was that they called that someone would be stupid enough to do this on Halloween. And they were right.

    Bill Mahr has some good points, and I agree with a lot of his politics. Although he IS a member of PETA so I've learned to take what he says with a grain of salt. :rolleyes:

    Don't get me started on PETA. They believe the only people who should be allowed to get insulin shots are their own members. (basically if you have diabetes and take insulin, you're being cruel to animals) They fund terrorist organizations who hurt innocent people. They also don't believe in keeping pets, so they "liberate" pets from animal shelters. What do they do to those animals? They gas 'em.

    Thats all I'm going to say on the subject. Its for another thread.

    As soon as anyone mentions the word terrorist as an attack on any organisation I assume they're talking out of their hat (I'm in the UK so amybe it's different over there. I don't agree with any extremist moves in support of peaceful aims).

    Bottom line: It's possible to debunk any organisation.

    Clearly for another thread though.

    Just do some reading about the Animal Liberation Front.

    As for Maher, he lacks tact. And he wonders why more people prefer watching Conan O'Brien. :rolleyes:
