Run away!October 17th, 2013 |
Anyone remember Monty Python and the Holy Grail? I couldn't help but think of it when I was looking at the current Patrick James Holiday 2013 catalog (I get a LOT of catalogues at my place). Page 86. Some rugby polo shirts. But not just your usual striped rugby pattern. These had an embroidery, similar to the Lacoste alligator. And the embroidery was described as, and I quote, "a bunny logo that adds a touch of playful whimsy". What could be cuter? Soft, fuzzy bunnies. Oh, they look like this:
How playful and whimsical. A bunny skull and cross bones!
Not saying I don't approve. I'm sure King Arthur and his knights would happily receive them as Xmas gifts. A reminder that one does not trifle with killer rabbits. But do you think the copy writer even looked at the shirts? Or was she employing irony? Hmmmmm.
