Your So Vain

I'm not sure what the Obamanable Snowman is going to talk about in the State of the Union tonight, but I sure as hell hope it is this:

Yes, that is an actual item for sale at Wet Seal.

If you aren't sure why this upsets me, think about what it is saying.

'If YOU ARE single, so am I'

Not: 'If your single, so am I'

So unless they meant "your single" as in "your single mission in life is to seek out and destroy the person who created this shirt by delivering a bear wrapped in explosives and a can-do attitude" then the person who created this shirt needs to be hunted down by a bear wrapped in explosives and a can-do attitude.

Is this where we are as a society? Every person on earf spends their days getting to second base with their mobile phone on texts, Twitter, Facebook, blogs and Googling "What was Lisa from Saved by the Bell's real name?" and yet we can't get this right?

So if the next generation can't even spell correctly, let's all blame Wet Seal.

Because it is obviously there fault.

I was going to blog about this too. How many people did this pass through? Seriously. HUNDREDS. I sort of thought there had to be some ironic pop culture pun associated with it that us big kids don't understand, like maybe it's an iCarly thing, but even then - not ok. Dumb dumb dumb.

I got a text last week from a, um, 'friend' that said:

"your so dirty"

At which point I replied:


It's like I'm my very own cockblocker.

You mean: their fault? Not there. You're wearing that t-shirt right now, aren't you?? Haha, this was a good one!

Gina said...

Oh, this annoys me so much! How many people had to approve this item?! So sad.

Lark Voorhies is the real name of Lisa from Saved By the Bell. YOUR WELLCOME!

And here I was about to correct your title for you. I hate that people can't do these kinds of things correctly. Their stupid.

Can't believe that Seal would let an item like this be sold on his website. Kiss from a Rose is so nice.

Yeah. I totally have to kick my own ass when I fuck up this word while posting on facebook. Luckily for me, out of the 5,000 times I've written the proper "you're" or "your", I've only fucked it up once.

I was sore for days!

Collision repair at it's best....
