The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Oops, he wore it again

Joel over at LOOK@OKC makes this earnest plea to someone downtown:

If you are a straight man over forty (not a thirteen year old girl or a gay man), please don't wear a t-shirt with Britney Spears on it. Please. You might not know it but you've crossed that invisible line that lies between "guy in a t-shirt" and "guy people are afraid to let their children near." For the good of society please don't wear that shirt again.

I don't think it's quite as dramatic as all that — the guy with Mrs Federline's visage under his double chin could hardly look as frightening as these folks — but I must agree that it is the responsibility of all of us to avoid scaring children this way.
