Wasn’t sure if obscenities were allowed in thread titles outside the pit so I erred on the side of caution.
Anyway, I am about the most unoffendable, sometimes downright un PC person I know.
We’ve had discussions here about t-shirts with objectionable images or sayings on them and at worst I’ve thought “what kind of dumb ass would wear such a thing?” but usually I don’t think too much about it.
Over the weekend I saw this tacky piece of shit and was surprised at the :mad: :mad: :( that washed over me. My first thought was to confront the store clerk but I knew that would be useless. Then I thought about writing a blistering letter to the store’s headquarters, though I doubt that would do anything either. Hell, I don’t even know what I would want / expect anyone to do. Now I’m mostly just perplexed. Am I misunderstanding something?I was easily able to Google the image so it’s obviously a “thing”, but what exactly is it supposed to mean? Surely it can’t be the ignorant, hateful message that it appears??? If so, why would a national retailer carry such potentially controversial merchandise? Mind, I’m not advocating the removal of the shirts; even hateful assholes have the right to free speech, I just find myself taken aback. Is there more to this that my old, unhip self doesn’t know about? What do you all think about the shirt?
