Al qaeda used Plane! It’s super effective!

It worries me that Nick Soapdish sits around at home thinking up 9-11 themed Halolz submissions…

    Im from Canada and im sixteen and the 9-11 attack was terrible but i have to say this made me laugh it was on the line but it has been several years and this was bound to happen sooner or later this person just had the guts to do it this is much more acceptable then people profiting from makeing music about 9-11 or selling the silver from ground zero as a memorial its shameless but this is simple and funny crude humor

    I prefer the Starfox one. The Steve Irwin/Pokemon joke sort of used up the “Oh god that’s awful, but haha” already.

    Nick Soapdish=Patriot.

    Now thats a fine example of the first amendment. Nice way to stand up and say "Sure you guys attacked us, But we can look back on this and laugh! You cant scare shit!"

    But besides the social commentary, not really all that funny.

    2/5 for the balls needed to make these things and actually send them in.

    0/5 for Handyside if he takes these down.

    These past two pictures, i srs lol’d, infact i was downright rofl’ing.

    so many people taking this crap too seriously, really.
    look… if america keeps walking around with the attitude of “we’re the best!!1!”, then someone will come along everytime and slap you down.

    10/10 for both pictures, and good job to the mod for posting and keeping them up. as an artist im all for free speech.

    oh and please i hope so, a school shooting pic with ‘BOOM Headshot!’, those where awesome ^_^ only in america ftw.

  5. TheOne&Only on September 14th, 2008 11:30 am

    I love how everyone here is talking about Iraq when it has NOTHING to do with 9/11.

    We went to AFGHANISTAN to get terrorists and such, and there wasn't much there. THEN we got info that WMD's were in Iraq and went over there for THAT reason.

    P.S: All the people need to lighten up about the pic. I find it hillarious. Its a fucking picture. And if it bothers you THAT much, its as Gorge said, "Your letting the terrorists win"

  6. Daifuku on September 14th, 2008 12:17 pm

    ok, first off uberprops to Shawn Handyside and Nick Soapdish for posting/creating this. you two got some major balls. and second please everyone chill. its a picture for god’s sake. are you really going to let something like this bend you all out of shape? (notes that i am also spending time out of my day to post on this. so i must be bent as well :p ) and third i think this is epically funny. i have also been in the Army for a little over 2 years now and have also fought in this retarded war now. i knew people in the towers. i joined the army and got shot at for those people in the towers that died. and i still have a sense of humor to find the humor in this. the event of september eleventh is horrible, dont get me wrong. but come on, this is genuinely funny stuff. and this goes for both pics

    I love “Super effective” jokes, and I am easy amused. And this amused me ever so.
    I laughed, I giggled, and I did so very hard.
    I also read all the comments. It took a while, but it was worth it; some were also very amusing.

    Now, this isn’t the first 9/11 joke I’ve seen. I’d like to share a few which I remember off hand.

    1)Q: What is the New York City Fire Department’s favorite song?
    A: “It’s Raining Men”

    2)Q: What’s the biggest difference between 9/11 and the Oklahoma City Bombing?
    A: Foreigners once again prove they can do it better and more efficiently.

    3)Q: How many Americans died in 9/11?
    A: Who gives a fuck?

    4)Q: What does WTC stand for?
    A: What Trade Centre?

    5)”It’s a bird!”
    “It’s a plane!”
    “It’s…. Oh shit, it IS a plane!”

    All these make me giggle also. (And I’m expecting someone to comment on these jokes. I’m looking at you Dragoon!)
    Anyway, I’m not American just if anyone cares to know. I’m a 17 year old, female Canadian. Here is my take on this whole thing. Was 9/11 a terrible tragidy, yes; and I do feel sorry for the people who lost loved ones. Also, the killing of many innocent civilians in the Middle East is also very tragic and I feel sorry for the loss of the loved ones there also. I also feel sorry for the loved ones of the men and women who have died fighting “the war on terror.” I do believe Canada is knocking on 100 soldiers who have died in the Middle East now, a good number of them accidently killed by American troops.
    Anyway, what I’m saying is that I feel bad for everyone’s loss and that this joke is still funny for me.
    I’m just going to stop there because this is much too long already.
    Peace to all!

  8. Jack Antoniou on September 15th, 2008 1:40 am

    you ma’am just won 1 internetz

    i particularily lol’d at
    ”It’s a bird!”
    “It’s a plane!”
    “It’s…. Oh shit, it IS a plane!”

    But seriously this flame war has gone on long enough. People need to learn to take a joke and deal with their own stupid opinion, with out exposing the fine users of halolz to your blatant stupidity.

    I for one was extremely pissed off when this happened because i was 8 at the time. They cancelled my favourite cartoons in the morning to play looped footage of the controlled demolition you all call 9/11, nevermind the fact it is 11/9…Stupid yankees.

  9. Ryan on January 15th, 2009 4:34 am

    play looped footage of the controlled demolition you all call 9/11, nevermind the fact it is 11/9…Stupid yankees.
    My god the moment I saw that I knew I had seen the most retarded thing ever on the internet and had to spoon my eyes out. Do you know how hard it is to type right now?

  10. Bleh, Another Flamer on September 15th, 2008 1:44 am

    “I do believe Canada is knocking on 100 soldiers who have died in the Middle East now, a good number of them accidently killed by American troops.”

    Darn shame they left you out!

    Irony you wish peace to everyone, but… well, your post speaks for itself.

    Just another hurtful, desensitized internet denizen, eh.

  11. The Silent One on September 15th, 2008 1:50 am

    Grow a pair and suck it up ya fucking pansies.

  12. Ylva on September 15th, 2008 10:51 am

    @Jack Antoniou

    That was my favorite one also.

    @Bleh, Another Flamer

    I do wish peace to everyone, however as someone else said, you are more likely to notice what is happening and affecting your own country and have that affect ones self more than if the same thing were to happen in a country on the other side of the world.

    By the way, I agree that I am a desensitized person; hurtful, maybe even that too.

    At times I am a hypocrite, but I at least admit to the hypocrisy.

  13. alexisonOATH on September 15th, 2008 12:24 pm

    This picture = roflcaust. Get over 9/11, it's old news.

    And yeah I'm American and live in NYC:D

  14. Avalanch Man on September 15th, 2008 7:58 pm

    *Sigh* Really Halolz? Is this what you’ve stooped to? You know, I remember a time when this site had funny pictures. And then came the Portal jokes. Then all the Wolf jokes. But this? This just isn’t right. I’ll put up with some of this kind of stuff, but it’s getting way to frequent. It’s not funny, it’s rude, and really inconsiderate to people like me, who don’t find Pokemon jokes funny.

    I’ll come back to this site after the moderators stop all the childish Pokemon references.

  15. Dr. Pie on September 16th, 2008 4:22 am

    I personally found it quite funny. In horribly bad taste, but funny.

    I wasn’t really affected at all by 9/11, being British.

    It was a tragedy yes, but if you can’t laugh at something, then how are we ever meant to move on. We can’t keep dwelling on the tragedies.

  16. DominicanKing614 on September 16th, 2008 8:58 pm

    ok the last 9/11 one with the barrel roll was kinda funny but this one is just stupid and wrong … a pokemon joke isnt that great on this kind of thing anyway and i think its a bit tiring to keep poking fun at something that tragic ….

  17. SixStringSam on September 16th, 2008 9:56 pm

    Too all of you people,
    Who have said given a “Kudos” for the representation of free speech.
    You sicken me,
    You’re not in favor of this due to the free speech,
    You are in love with the controversy.
    This isn’t an example of free speech,
    This is an example of ignorance.
    Yes, I know,
    “OMFG, he’s allowed to say it if he wants.”
    But the Right of Free Speech,
    Was designed,
    So that the oppressed could have a voice,
    So that those who would regularly not have that luxury,
    Could have one.
    Not so it could be used as a means of crude humor.

    And as for Satire,
    It is satire,
    Nice job for all of you who pointed that out.
    Go take that nice little sudo-intellect you have,
    And do something productive with it.
    Don’t waste your time,
    Defending something that shouldn’t be defended.

    Why am I ranting?
    15 people I knew,
    Friends and family,
    Died that day.
    I do take a very personal affront to this image,
    And the one prior to this.

  18. Hobbs on September 17th, 2008 11:29 am

    Best on Halolz(Beside Popike)!

  19. Hobbs on September 17th, 2008 11:31 am

    I can’t let you bomb that, Al qaedan Fucks.

  20. Gage on September 17th, 2008 11:41 am

    Things American’s Can Do:

    Crack jokes about the Holocost
    Crack jokes about Slavery
    Crack jokes about any ethnic minority ever
    Crack jokes about dropping atomic weapons on civilian targets
    Crack jokes about rape

    Things (some) American’s Can’t Do:

    Laugh when the joke is on them

  21. Hobbs on September 17th, 2008 11:24 pm

    Meant to say cocks. Sorry.

  22. Hobbs on September 17th, 2008 11:26 pm

    Oh and yeah, it’s spelled Holocaust. I study these kind of things. Also, I laughed and I’m German. Take that, Gage.

  23. Hobbs on September 17th, 2008 11:28 pm

    No really, I know that the Wolf jokes have to rhyme. Just was choosing improper words that day. Trying to redeem myself here.

  24. Hobbs on September 17th, 2008 11:31 pm

    How many people where in those buildings anyway?! Too many dead relatives for me to handle.

  25. Hobbs on September 17th, 2008 11:35 pm

    I neeed to focus more comments on other things. But in the end, I feel drawn to this joke. It didn’t make me chuckle or “lol”, but I have to confess, This is the one joke that I laughed hardest at. Ever. I’m a sick person, aren’t I?

  26. Rabin on September 18th, 2008 3:48 pm

    I found this completely tasteless.

  27. Matt on September 29th, 2008 5:07 am

    wtf people? why is it nessacary to bitch and moan about other peoples opinions? jesus, get over it, if you dont like it think about it this way, some people cope with sad things by laughing it out, or joking about it, others maybe like yourself cry about it, i thought it was fucking hilarious, im going to hell, not for this but for other stuff, and im not ganna say anything about people who dont like it. i just chose to laugh said things off. @dragoon, really? really now? you care THAT much as to ask for an apology, who do you think you are you stupid fuck, and really people just rate it outa 5 or 10 or watever you want, just stop with the fucking hate comments

  28. zumakito on October 7th, 2008 11:43 am



    I found this hilarious. I hate myself. e_e

  29. Aidan on November 26th, 2008 2:18 am

    Let me put it to you this way, Stalin killed 11 million russians in WW2. A million german soldiers died, most of whom were sent to war for a cause they didn't beleive in.
    And yet you pay good money to derive pleasure from playing these games, shooting people in the head, sometimes pointing out to your friends that you got a good headshot on a guy cringing on the ground.
    Relax, and look at youself before you say this is too harsh.

  30. Aidan on November 26th, 2008 2:19 am

    hush you.
    Maybe they do find it funny, sorry if we all can't be as amazing as you. I envy you, i truly do.

  31. Joshy206 on November 27th, 2008 3:50 am

    I'm staying above the fray on this one and am not going to post whether I laughed, whether I agree, or anything like that.

    What I WILL post is that even though it might have been wrong for it to be posted here (I may or may not agree that this is the case) but none of you should be flinging political fighting at each other. It's a joke. We can all agree it is tasteless, but we are all allowed our own opinions. Do not yell, insult, or just abuse people for their views.

  32. In search of me on November 29th, 2008 6:20 am

    I would just like to say that this isn't a big deal in a universal view. It is estimated that 600-3000 people died every day in world war 1. Or that 30 million Ukrainians starved to death in possibly the worst genocide in history. During Stalin's reign. It is ant different here?

    The thing is that we have been exposed to this so much that it has desensitized us as beings. We see murder day in and day out, and we take it with great ease, because we know the feeling what it's like to see death. the comments of this picture are no different. People don't care that millions are without proper caring in Africa, it isn't in their personal interest.

    People take one look at this picture and find it tasteless because it is in their interest that what happened to a nation, becomes that nations history. It is because people value this history that they respect and reconcile in their beliefs that what means to them is what matters most.

    So to wrap things up, people who say this is tasteless are too sensitive of other peoples nationalistic values. People who say that people who find the image tasteless are being insensitive of those people. It is neither wrong, nor right to say what his picture represents. You either like it or hate it. The only thing people here can agree on is that it happened and it is sad. The difference is between those who can stand the exposure, and those who cope with it. It only depends on what you care about. Do you care enough to see that there is death at home, or do you care to see a broader spectrum, and see what occurs around the world. The only thing I can decide is that people are here to laugh, and this picture makes people laugh because people understand that the are much worse things. MUCH WOSE THINGS!

  33. Aidan on December 3rd, 2008 6:14 am

    Hear hear.
    =D I love internet arguments, especially ones as contreversal as this one.

  34. ROBIM on December 4th, 2008 1:26 am

    here is my apology…. FUCK YOU

  35. KingofRetards on December 6th, 2008 8:34 am

    I second that.

  36. Me666 on January 14th, 2009 7:18 am

    I third that =P

  37. CHEESE on January 17th, 2009 6:20 pm

    I fourth that

  38. Paiv on February 21st, 2009 12:39 pm

    Dragoon got Halol'pwn'd.

  39. Soupboy on December 6th, 2008 4:31 pm

    Okay, So let me get this straight;
    Al-Quaeda kills hundreds of thousands of innocent americans and because "Nick Soapdish" posted a picture of this referencing a video game, HE deserves to die in a fiery crash?
    /Epic Fail

    Wake up people, He's not posting this to offend anyone, He's not laughing at all the people who died that day.
    Just like he said before, Its more of a political satire, Not a mockery of a major tragedy in american history.
    Learn to laugh; you're not laughing at the victims of this attack, you're laughing at a picture.
    Just a picture.

    I just wanted get that out…

  40. Ryan on January 15th, 2009 4:39 am

    Hundreds of thousands? I hate what they did too but somewhere below 3000 people died. Not hundreds of thousands.

  41. Very Metal on December 13th, 2008 10:05 am

    this is as valid as any of the millions of existing WTC photoshop parodys that already exist, or those that parody any other event of significance. Some people like darker humour, some don`t; and hurling insults or regurgetating media rhetoric as if it were opinion won`t change that.
    so, in conclusion, if you didn`t find it funny -- you`re wrong ;P

  42. bob again.. on December 19th, 2008 5:37 am

    xD! best image on this shit ass site.

  43. KingofRetards on December 24th, 2008 6:35 am

    So many long comments :D

  44. Nick Soapdish on December 28th, 2008 10:22 am

    I can't believe people are still commenting on this. Here's hoping comments go over 9000.

  45. Exploderizer on January 8th, 2009 12:37 pm

    Hear, hear!

  46. Lerky Cartman on January 1st, 2009 10:47 am

    The comments, they are… Over 200!!!

  49. Exploderizer on January 8th, 2009 12:37 pm

    Erm… Am I too late?

  50. Me666 on January 14th, 2009 7:20 am

    I don't see why ppl don't like this, because it's funny. Sure we respect those who died on 9/11, but we're not laughing at 9/11, we're laughing at a pokemon parody of 9/11. Seriously guys, lighten up

  51. the-onion-ghost on January 14th, 2009 3:20 pm

    3.7/5 for the pic.
    wtc is lvl 110 ?!

  52. Ashee on January 23rd, 2009 8:15 am

    Wooow people still comment on this! Awesome, all I'll say is: those who are offended are a bunch of hypocrites.


  53. Afro_Joe on November 30th, 2010 6:47 pm

    People died, no joke is ok about it, not about anyone. Anyone who says that its ok to do so because others say thing about other things is simply wrong. This is sick, jokes about tradgedies anywhere are just wrong.

  54. PkmnInterpreter on November 28th, 2011 8:02 pm

    oh no no no…. why am I laughing?
