While perusing the racks at REI for a pair of biking knickers, I rifled through the sale rack of women’s shirts.
The below picture is the type of shirts on that rack.
Look at this crap! It’s effin’ unholy. Talk about a continuation of the pink theme from my earlier post but this has gone too far.
If you click on the picture, you’ll see a larger, more crisp version. Just be warned your eyes may be momentarily seared.
1. The shirt on the far left is a horrible shade of pink with YELLOW flowers.
2. The middle shirt says ‘biker Chick’ with a baby chicken, which appears to be quaking in fear on top of a bike saddle. Why is the ‘b’ lower case and the ‘C’ capitalized?
Note the first two are also sleeveless. I personally hate sleeveless biking jerseys, but I understand why you don’t want tan lines. I’m already doomed there.
3. I think it says ‘Hippy Chick’. I am unsure what the picture is of. An owl? Daisies? A chicken? All I know is that it’s a god forsaken mess and unless I was being paid a lot of money by a sponsor, no way would I wear this jersey.
Why is mainstream women’s bike clothing so effin’ lame? The more I look at the baby chicken, the more I have some kind of emotional response to it. Oh god what a ‘chick’ thing to say….
