To not be surprised that anyone finding this offensive apparently does not have a sense of humour?

future porn star T shirts for sale
welliemum · 26/02/2007 04:14
No, perfectly reasonable.
It seems I have no sense of humour, by the way.
nearlyfourbob · 26/02/2007 04:50
Well thats two of us. I did once try to tell The Warehouse that supporting positive parenting whilst selling "little monster" t shirts was not a good marketing fit and got told I had no sense of humour. So a year later and we hear that line again...but this time it's news.
Up till this they'd only sold 3 - it is just possible that this is their own press release. And that would make me sad about the world (pun intended)
eidsvold · 26/02/2007 05:01
obviously I am with you and lacking a sense of humour.
not a popular choice if they have only sold three.
ghosty · 26/02/2007 05:20
Ha. Ha. Ha.
No GSOH here either nearly4bob ... that is appalling. I hate slogans.
Apart from the one on my DD's t-shirt that says:
"I love ice cream"
Which is fair enough really.
alipiggie · 26/02/2007 05:24
Um can I add - no completely reasonable. Yuck and sick spring to mind.
MrsJohnCusack · 26/02/2007 05:29
oh yes, we've been talking about this here
blinking hilarious isn't it - can't think WHY there's anything wrong with them
the - ahem - 'designer' sounds monumentally thick doesn't she - $45 for a 'joke' that isn't neccesarily to be worn. ha ha, I think my sides have split...
mamama · 26/02/2007 05:31
No sense of humour here either, apparently.
Think it highly inappropriate. But then I'm a miserable old woman.

ScummyMummy · 26/02/2007 05:56
No sense of humour here at all, either.
mytwopenceworth · 26/02/2007 06:47
PMSL. oh that's so funny. i must get one for my boys. does he do one that says rent boy, £20 an hour. ds1 is 7 now and really should be earning his keep.....

There is a difference between good humour and things that are in such bad taste they go beyond humour, this is one of the latter.
I generally don't like anything that is printed on baby/toddler clothing. I try desparately hard not to get tops that have cute bears or tractors and things on them for ds who is now 2.8, but very difficult when you can only afford cheaper clothing rather than expensive stuff, although I also object to in your face logos on children't clothing ! The last thing I want to teach my son is that he must only wear Dior or YSL when he grows up
fireflyfairy2 · 26/02/2007 07:41
Who ever thinks of shit like this???
My SOH seems to have failed me this morning, I shall come back later, more mellow, & may perhaps find it funny then, to degrade my child & make innuendos about their future career.
nearlyfourbob · 26/02/2007 07:43
I am actually more offended by Parents are Boring, because why would anyone buy something for their children that insults them?
FioFio · 26/02/2007 07:44
nearlyfourbob · 26/02/2007 08:52
I love the rent boy suggestion. of course you would have to buy at least one size too small to get the look right.
DontlookatmeImshy · 26/02/2007 08:58
Ladies, we DO have a sense of humour. Ours just isn't warped, sad and pathetic.
yellowrose · 26/02/2007 08:59
By the way total strange men stare at ds, I am extremely worried about what they may be thinking already, so wouldn't dare advertise him as well by putting some god awful text on his shirt too !
ghosty · 26/02/2007 09:01
The more I think of this the more angry I get nearly4bob ...
turquoise · 26/02/2007 09:06
I don't think the references to paedophiles etc are particularly necessary, it's just wrong. Nothing funny about it at all.
kslatts · 26/02/2007 09:08
This type of thing makes me so angry, I hate slogan t-shirts anyway, but this is really bad, no wonder they have only sold 3, why would anyone buy one for a child.
Emskilou · 26/02/2007 09:11
I do have a sense of humour I believe, however, not the sick, uneducated pathetic sense of humour the people that think these awful slogan t-shirts up. They must make their parents so proud
JanH · 26/02/2007 09:18
$45NZ is only ("only") £16 so not quite as stupid as it sounds - but still pretty stupid for a, ahem, novelty.
The guy sounds like a total tosser. And what does he mean, "about 3"? 2, maybe?
MrsJohnCusack · 26/02/2007 09:20
yes it's not so very much in your finest british pounds - but actually, with NZ wages as they are, it is more or less equivalent to paying 45 quid if you're operating in $NZ
still, worth every penny (cent) eh?!
