Guys, they're sold on www.zazzle.co.uk, which (according to a quick google search) is a custom t-shirt site. From my understanding, any user is able to decide which slogan should be printed on a particular shirt, and so the views expressed may not reflect those of the company. There is a multitude of different t-shirts with slogans designed by other users. Correct me if I'm wrong. ;)

I admit it's a terrible slogan regardless, and the company really should be more vigilant about screening for inappropriate designs before allowing them to become available for purchase.


Yeah you're right, it's not like it's a high street chain or anything making these t-shirts. But yes, the company should be more vigilant about stuff like this.

I got my "harpist by day deadly ninja by night" t-shirt I'm wearing in my profile pic from zazzle. I wonder if that means there's another harpist out there who also does martial arts..... :topic:

Well.. your t-shirt IS pretty damn awesome Alex ;)

Even if it is a customised site, I do believe there should be some regulations in order against this kind of thing. I certainly won't be buying from there, 3rd thing on my list of boycotts :)

It is so awful and surreal that it is almost funny. Would anybody really do that?

Basically, if people are stupid enough to buy these things for their kids then they need beating up

Otherwise this is just ridiculous. People are just going out to shock. It's pathetic. This story will disappear in a couple of weeks, we won't see three-year-olds wandering round with this on their tshirts, and there will be something else that's designed to shock.

This is quite old anyway... and it was on Zazzle, where you can have anything you want on a t-shirt- so it's not like companies were mass producing them. :)

Is the really messed up part. Do they really? I've never ended up on a porno site because I was searching "pro-ana".
