Today: An Informercial For Potentially Offensive T-Shirts?

A group of female high school students took to NBC's Today Show to announce a "girlcott" of Abicrombie & Fitch.

They say the controversial clothing chain is degrading young girls by selling shirts featuring slogans like "Who needs brains when you have these?" printed over the sweater-meat area, and that they should boycott the store and not buy them.

... fair point, but if chicks in college- or even in their twenties- want to wear 'em, they should be allowed to... and shouldn't parents be keeping an eye on the filthy slogans their kids wear?...

Of course, their appearance was basically free advertising for the shirts and the store. They were on Today for several minutes, tantamount to hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of free advertising for the very store they were trying to squash.

... and they should know better... just reading this article makes me want to buy a shirt for every hot babe on my Christmas list...
