wtf smaller

UPDATE: I ran a search today and it looks like these have been pulled.

Was this intended to be some sick joke? Is the site for real? Is the tee shirt? Have I been punk'd? 

I don't think so. I Googled "UK Amazon" and did a search. The top photo is what I found, the other two links were sent to me by Twitter pal @samuelpeepses.

If it is, indeed, supposed to be "funny", then the "joke" is at the expense of women who have suffered traumatic, life-changing, devastating violence. If not, which is as unimaginable as hawking this dreck, does Amazon bother to screen their submissions? Why would they sell such an appalling tee? And profit off of it?

Nice message to send out to the kiddies, too, right Amazon?

Taco restaurant thinks their “How to Catch an Illegal Immigrant” t-shirts are "witty and comical"

A Mexican food restaurant in South Carolina features the above tee shirt and considers it appropriate and funny. It features a box trap with two tacos placed just-so to entice undocumented immigrants.

Isn't that a knee slapper? I bet you can't wait to buy one of your very own, because hey, they are clever-r-r-r! Nothing says "witty" like a racist tee shirt.

And by witty I mean offensive as hell and idiotic.

NBCLatino has reaction to the shirts here, as well as this:

Taco Cid did not respond to an NBC Latino request for comment but updated its website with a statement.

Our t-shirts were created as a witty and comical statement regarding ILLEGAL immigrants. There are NO racial nor hate remarks towards any specific ethnic group. Taco Cid and its employees are not racists,” the statement continued. ”As most tax paying Americans, we do believe ILLEGAL immigrants are taxing the system we support and live under, thereby, causing us to work harder and pay more taxes in support of their illegal activities which our government has simply chosen to look the other way. Is it racist to disagree with those who are not supporting the American system?”

Taco Cid employees wear the shirts and they are also available for purchase, according to Think Progress.

Brian Cohen, is the owner of BeWild.com, which also sells the shirts and says the shirts are not his designs — they just sell them.

Oh well, then, if it's a "statement regarding ILLEGAL immigrants" it's perfectly acceptable, A-OK, hunky dory. Carry on!

As of now, Yelp.com has them at a one-star rating:

"Drug front" indeed. You'd have to be on drugs to patronize that place.

Remember this?

And this?

Now there's this...

 

... because the Supreme Court decision on the Affordable Care Act was, indeed, a big f'ing deal.

Support the president's re-election bid by linking over and tee-ing up.
