PUBLIC OPINION > Zombie Costumes Trump Charlie Sheen

News 2011/10/28 21:00:00
Every year, pop culture produces a new pallet of clever costume ideas. Last year Lady Gaga and Snooki were on top. This year's top pop disguise was no surprise -- Charlie Sheen, purveyor of the preposterous and coiner of such winning phrases as "Adonis DNA" and "Vatican assassin warlock." But the King of Crazy still couldn't take down the No. 1 costume of the year...


Which Popular Halloween Costume Is Your Favorite This Year?

28% Prefer Zombie Costumes

The hordes have spoken. Keep your brains in your back pocket on Monday, because even with timely subjects like Sheen and Steve Jobs in the mix, more than a quarter of voters picked the living dead as their favorite costume of the year. A few words of advice for nervous trick-or-treaters: Aim for the head and don't stop moving.

Charlie vs. Zombies

Charlie #Wins With Men

It looks like most of the zombies this year will be women. Men actually prefered the Charlie Sheen idea over zombies by a couple percent (32% Sheen, 30% zombie). But 20% of women also dug the Sheen idea, so expect to see some diverse Charlies in the crowd. (Zombie Sheen, anyone?)

Books and Braaaiiiiins!

College is filled with zombies -- and we don't mean that figuratively. Half of college students said they preferred zombie costumes, and college-aged voters (18-24) lead the age demographic for zombies. If someone comes up with an antidote, you know where to send it.

Lurching Across the Aisle

Political parity is hard to come by as election year approaches, but conservatives and liberals are in agreement over one thing: Zombies. Both parties favored the living dead at 31% and 33% respectively. Moderates, progressives, and libertarians all preferred Charlie Sheen.

    I find the term "zombie" to be racist and intolerant. They should be termed " the mortally challenged"...

    Why anyone would want to dress as Charlie is beyond me, much less angry birds, Lady Gaga, or Schwarzenegger.

    See another prediction of Harold Camp realized... The Mayan calender predicted that next year it would be vampires again.
    Nostradamus even predicted this doomsday, and don't even get me started on revelations.

    There will go from Mont & Aventin,
    One who through the hole will warn the army:
    Between two rocks will the booty be taken,
    Of SECT mausoleum the renown to fail.
    The incendiary trapped in his own fire,
    Of fire from the sky at Carcassonne & Comminges:
    Foix, Auch, Mazères, the high old man escaped,
    Through those of Hesse, Thuringia & some Saxons.

    zombie is so 2010 and boring.
  • Tara 2011/10/30 14:39:06
    Dressing like a celebrity is usually lame. Put some thought into it. A recognizable character is better....even more so in zombie form!
  • BackRoadz 2011/10/30 14:38:52
    Seriously....who would want to look like Charlie Sheen for halloween?!? Sheen might like kind of trollish but i'd rather have a good costume......

    I find the picture offensive to the swishy pants. That's what they looked like in the 50's when they came out of their closets.
  • findthelight2000 2011/10/29 23:32:17

    Charlie Sheen - Winning? I think not!
