Urban Outfitters has evidently hit the ire of the conservative crowd again with some of their profanity laced products. I can't say I agree with the conservative, Bible thumpin' folks entirely on this issue, but I can't say I disagree completely either. I just have different reasons for not liking it.
The words "fuck" and "shit" are just words. They are words I typically try to use sparingly. Not necessarily because they are considered offensive by many people, but because those words really lack any sense of creativity. Anyone can say them to in a lame attempt to make themselves appear "hip" and "edgy".
Therefore, in my not so humble opinion, Urban Outfitters using "fuck" or "f*ck" and "shit" of "sh!t" on their products is just a bit lame. Sorry, personally, I am not impressed. In addition, a lot of their crap looks like a crude version of stuff that used to come out of those little dispensers lined up by the supermarket door for which I used to beg my mother for a quarter when I was a kid. Some of their other stuff looks like someone snuck into my garage and fished it out of my rag barrel.
I won't be digging into my pocket to stuff any of their stuff in someone's stocking this year. If I get that desperate I might be able to recycle something out of that rag bucket and scribble "f*ck" with a magic marker on it ...
