I’ve noticed the little T-Shirt icon next to some headlines on CNN for awhile now and just now decided to post about them. When I first saw them, I cringed a bit. I mean, who the hell would want a shirt with a news headline on it unless it was funny and/or some-what witty? And I don’t remember CNN ever being particularly funny.
For example, you can purchase a CNN shirt with the following headlines:
- Residents moved for Olympic progress
- Celebrity couples that survive Hollywood
- 6 million bees spill in wreck
There’s nothing funny, witty, poignant, or otherwise about these. How sad do you have to be to want a shirt with a headline that says absolutely nothing? I definitely don’t get why CNN is even bothering with shirts.
