Bullseye


The T-shirts for our work event arrived today - and I was so mad I almost spit.

But try not to read this without laughing. I double dog dare you.

The people at our national organization - which provides the shirts and designs the front of them (the back has sponsor logos) - came up with the brilliant idea of including their logo within the number 30 and putting it on the front of the shirt, because it's the organization's 30th anniversary this year.

The number 0 is round, right?

Guess where they put the logo? Left and center. Chest level.

Now imagine being a woman. Would you even THINK about wearing this shirt?

The worst part is - it wasn't a mistake. Two women and one man designed it but, alas, no one tried it on before going to print with thousands of shirts for all 80 walks they're having this year.

The guy at national was really apologetic.

I told him, "I understand. You're not used to thinking like a woman with large breasts. I am."

For the first time in any conversation I've had with him, he was quiet. As. A. Mouse.

Wow. And nope. I couldn't read this without laughing.

One thing people could write on a name tag if they wore the shirt: Don't look at my boobs. Oops, too late.

It could be worse. I really can't come up with a way, but I am sure it could...

Ha ha. Sorry but that's a classic!
I'm just wondering where they are going to put the logo when they print the guys boxer shorts. :D

I'm sorry, but you were right. I couldn't help but laugh...still am, too.

And I have to ask this...Was it a massive screw-up, or a mammary screw-up?

Sorry...I'm still laughing...

Now that I have mine, it's even better - I mean WORSE - than originally thought!

Riot Kitty said...

It could be worse...maybe if they did it on BOTH sides!

PG: I'm so with you. I tried it on for Mr RK and he just started snickering. Laura O. said she's going to wear one to try and get dates!

I'll post a pic if none of you do anything bad with it.
