"Linky-Love, Exciting and New..."

"Come aboard, we're expecting yoooooooooooooooou..."

And then there's this.

111 men go shopping shirtless at Abercrombie and Fitch. Grasp the irony with me: over a hundred men of all shapes, sizes, and degrees of hairyness patronize a store that makes its fortune on the images of toned, tanned, hairless, shirtless men. The store even hires a model to stand shirtless in the lobby and greet patrons.

And then! The management of the store make the men leave, telling them they can't shop unless they're wearing shirts--as they march them past murals, statues, and the model, all displaying their bare torsos.

Hilarious. Wake up, people. A&F makes its profits on selling you a lie. Embrace the real. (Rant over.)
