Fuck! that asshole stole my t-shirt idea!
Just because you receive something from a tipster doesn't mean you have to post it.
If it wasn't for the caption of the smile it would be clever.
shirt should be taken down because it's tasteless and I could care less what the owner thinks. But gay porn should allowed anywhere that a gay business owner wants to put it in his gay business.
Start faux outrage in 3,2,1...
shouldnt this be at goods?
The gay porn inside Seattle bars doesn't face out onto the street, and Megan didn't call for police harassment of this business (or even identify it) or suggest we ought to have laws against bad taste, Bud Analogyman.
Grandy, it was a joke, a bad one, now get back to writing about equally shitty bands that bore most readers of you're rag.
I'm with @3...sans caption, it's actually kinda sweet.
Is that even physically possible?
Cool! Let's make fun of women and people in wheelchairs at the same time!
I'm with #2
Everybody loves Grandy but you, Bud. Go make fun of T****.
I think the shirt would be much more offensive if the guy pictured wasn't also in a wheelchair. You know, since he's also disabled, it's acceptable for him to refer to other disabled people, including women, as 'my crippa,' which isn't nearly as offensive or inflammatory as the normally-abled (and whitely pronounced) 'crippLE,' with that hard 'L' at the end.
As post-worthy as half the other entertaining flotsom. Proceed.
It's just a t-shirt. Big deal.
"Shocking" t-shirts of this type are a commonplace in spring-break-type tourist areas. "Caution - Choking Hazard - Package Contains Large Parts", etc. It's about as funny as "I'm Not Bald -- It's a Solar Panel For A Sex Machine". The bad thing about seeing this isn't the offensiveness of the shirt, but the likelihood that it indicates an increased frat boy presence on the Hill. Brace yourselves.
im with 11. anyone who would wear this shirt is a complete idiot.
I'd wear it.
I nominate It's Mark Mitchell for King of Seattle.
Is it in bad taste? Probably. But I'm not offended, and my partner used a wheelchair most of the time. In fact, when we'd go out somewhere and get extra consideration, I'd often comment to people that they should get a cripple of their own. And my partner thought it was as funny as I did.
When he died, I had several e-mails from friends asking what we were going to do now that our cripple wasn't still alive to get us to the front of the line at theme parks and stuff.
Do gay men refer to their partners by the minority type they are?
Poe has a Jew
Wolf had a Cripple
Fuck you, Poe. You're nothing but a troll. And you even suck at that.
"I'm Not Bald -- It's a Solar Panel For A Sex Machine"
Now that actually is funny.
@22 -- Whilst I am currently at a lull in my affection for Mr. Poe (his sense of humour goes too far, at times, even for me), I must assume it will someday again wax heavy.
At which point, I will strike you, T****, with a glove and demand satisfaction.
Mr. Poe is not a troll. He is, in point of fact, a stunningly important experiment in the online arts, assembled from cast-off machine parts, scrap-yard cable, tape, and bone, he wobbles, warbles, churns, and clunks; because of his ready-made elements and Dadaist operations, Mr. Poe is often compared to the work of Marcel Duchamp.
Please, bitch, step off. I may have been kicked in the head, but I'm still Poe's junkyard dog.
I made T**** cry. Woot!
If you need to know, and there's no real reason to indicate that you DO (outside of feeding a superior attitude), my partner was an artist. A writer. A cripple. A man. A son. A best friend. A lover. He was many things to many people.
And if you must know, I have an asshole, too. I call him "Bellevue." And all kinds of foul crap comes out of it.
I'm going to wear that to my next job interview.
p.s. is the stranger hiring?
best shirt EVAR!!!, still wiping the tears out of my eyes
seriously, someone ship it over here to mtl, ill wear it proudly :)
If you answer yes to one of three scenarios then you find the shirt offensive
1)cripple on cripple action
3)refering to a woman as bitch in the heat of passion (or being refered to).
I guess it's personal preference, god bless america!
El Seven @23: no, sadly, it is not.
@30, come on that's just cruel, give the man his self delussions.
Hey, cripples like sex too you know.
Not everyone, Poe. He was great for Atlas, wasn't he?
Oh COME OOONNNNN. Drop it you shiteater.
