So if somebody somewhere finds something offensive it becomes tasteless?

It would be tasteless to wear this to a breast cancer run or a walk for autism. But when you are surrounded by people who run just to get a t-shirt, this is the one to have.

Apparently there are too many people who must not be old enough to remember all of the save Africa stuff that went on in the 80s. I guess all of the USA for Africa and Band Aid singers were a bunch of racists.

I remember Band Aid!

And there won't be snow in Africa this Christmastime
The greatest gift they'll get this year is life
Where nothing ever grows
No rain nor rivers flow
Do they know it's Christmastime at all?

GAHHH . . . knew I should have snatched this up this morning at 6:00 a.m. I was too tired to think, though. Guess I will have to buy it tomorrow, even if it isn't my birthday any more by then.

I think I need to go on a Woot diet . . . it's unbelievable all the junk they get me to buy!

Well, my brother and I now know what we're wearing to our races this year. It's a shame I didn't see this sooner in the day (Yes, I know it'll be on sale again at midnight; I wanted to save $10)

Love it. Bought it. Glad I got it for $10 before it jumped to $15. But would be worth it even at $15.

A cure for Africa... haha. I love that the suggested things to cure aren't diseases. It sounds just like some apathetic slow-witted person talking.

Great job, love it. Wish I'd seen it before it sold out.

Hey, y'all: So, I'm one of the posters who warned folks about bodily harm possibly coming to you.

I'll just say it straight: I made a mistake.

When I checked shirt.woot this morning, I was lying in bed half-awake and squinting at my iPod Touch. I thought the motto on the bottom read: "like The Children of Africa Matter." I hope people immediately see how *that* reading would be insanely offensive to some folks (and why it might prompt some major violence).

Taking the *actual* design and wording into account (again, my bad, y'all - esp. to bootsboots), I personally think it's a pretty cool shirt.

That said, I still understand the posters who recognize how some folks could (and would) find the shirt (even correctly read) offensive.

I don't think anyone would disagree that the humor in this shirt is extremely edgy. The thing about edgy humor is that it cuts. The danger, then, is some folks might cut you back.

Should they? Well, no. But that doesn't mean they won't. *shrugs*

I don't find it edgy. I think the people who would find it offensive are oversensitive. It's all relative, you see. It seems anyone who mentions sensitive subjects like children or Africa in anything but a message of clear support gets flogged in some way by someone. I think that's stupid. People need to lighten up. Just because a select few people are idiots doesn't mean this shirt is edgy.

On a tangential note, I love the shrugs that have recently come into fashion online. Nothing says "I'm not trying to be imposing" like a good shrug. You could say "I think you're an a-hole *shrugs*", and it would still seem sort of okay. Hehe. But I digress.

This reminds me of John Cleese's famous eulogy at Graham Chapman's funeral:

Well, I feel that I should say, "Nonsense. Good riddance to him, the freeloading bastard! I hope he fries. "

And the reason I think I should say this is, he would never forgive me if I didn't, if I threw away this opportunity to shock you all on his behalf. Anything for him but mindless good taste.



No greater context, other than that I agree with you and thought that quote appropriate. There are situations where I wouldn't wear this shirt, but it's not overtly offensive, and not all humor must be in good taste.
