how dumb is the "East Lansing is a woman of negotiable affection" t shirt advertised on our home page

somebody explain to me why our MGoBlog store is promoting the "East Lansing is a woman......affection" t shirt?


this is an obvious ripoff of the Sparty shirt saying "Ann Arbor is a woman....." that works because our campus town, Ann Arbor, sounds like a woman's name.   Why in hell are we acting as if we think a ripoff of one of Sparty's few half-decent gags works?   Who thinks "East Lansing" sounds like a womans name?

why are we acting as if our lame ripoff of their gag is funny?   Why not  promote the shirts that are truly Blue?  like 'strike the pose" or "bow down little brother".

but can we remove the lame "East Lansing is a woman....."

It's the funniest Michigan shirt I've ever seen. How miserable are you that you complain about a shirt you don't like? Just don't buy it if you hate it that much.

i actually used the "woman of negotiable affection" line as a euphemism with one of my co-workers and he cracked up at it.  He did his undergrad at MSU, but redeemed himself by getting his master's at Cornell.

because they probably don't understand it. My favorite response to that "Ann Arbor is a whore" shirt though, is one I saw that said "If Ann Arbor is such a whore, how come you didn't get in"
