You’re all aware by now of the “outrage” ginned up by Congress that the clothing for our US Olympic athletes, designed by Ralph Lauren, will be manufactured in China. Big fucking deal. Clothes are made in China. Lots of things are made in China, because it’s fucking cheaper. You make clothes here, and now your whiny-assed employees start joining unions and demanding things like $7.25 an hour and piss breaks every other day. Now you’re paying twice as much for threads that don’t even have to be shipped overseas. Fuck that.
What I’m hacked off about is what these uniforms LOOK LIKE.
Seriously, Ralph Lauren – fuck you. This is the AMERICAN Olympic team, asshole, not the FRENCH Olympic team. That ascot? The berets? The solid blue, white and red flashes on said berets? That’s the French flag, you fucking imbecile.
When you wear the French flag, you look like a French fag. And I bet he saved a lot of material costs by removing the ball pouch from our male athletes’ pants. The female might have gotten away with this outfit because she’s cute – kind of looks like a stewardess. But she looks like a French stewardess, so you know her body odor could knock a buzzard off a shitwagon.
Congratulations, Ralph Lauren, you can even fuck up something as simple and pure as a pretty girl.
Forget about the China angle. It’s stupid. No one is complaining that America is losing its manufacturing know-how to a country that specializes in exploding cigars, flimsy barbecue tongs, and fake rubber dog vomit. Clothes are simple to make. Simple means cheap. If it can be done cheaper elsewhere, fucking do it elsewhere.
Instead, we should be worried about having our best athletes look like a bunch of mincing sissies as they carry the Stars and Stripes into the opening ceremonies. God knows Obama has done enough to weaken the brand. We don’t need this bullshit.
