*The Lady apologizes ahead of time for the allusions to curse words in this post*
Cherished readers, as The Lady has stated in an older post, mail time is a favorite event in the course of the day. Mixed in with the usual correspondence today was a catalog. On its cover a large banner proclaimed “MIX AND MATCH RED BOX SPECIAL Tees! But 2 or more for $18 each” Next to this was a photo showing just a few of the 96 different varieties of T-shirts available. One of the T-shirts in the sample photo had emblazoned across the front “I would like to thank my middle finger for always sticking up for me when I need it.”
Some other statements that you, too, can make with your clothing for the low price of $18 included:
- Friday is my second favorite F word.
- I’m up, if you’re expecting bright-eyed and bushy-tailed go catch a fr&#$ing squirrel.
- And yet despite the look on my face you’re still talking.
- I turn beer into pee. What’s your super power?
I could list more, but I won’t. I am sure most people see these as being jokes and funny, novelty items to stick in a drawer and never wear. I cannot help feeling that impressionable people would see them listed in a catalog and think that it is perfectly fine to go around offending people. Yes, I do think that outside of the privacy of one’s own home these are offensive. By their very design they are made to shock and offend and I cannot help but be dismayed to see these things for sale.
Best Clothing Wishes,
