Urban Outfitters' Not-So-Great 'Depression' Shirt Pulled From Stores

Illustration for article titled Urban Outfitters Not-So-Great Depression Shirt Pulled From Stores

After public outcry, Urban Outfitters has stopped selling an inscrutable t-shirt that reads, simply, DEPRESSION, in big block letters, over and over again. Can't wait to see what those nose-tweaking corporate scamps do next!

The shirt, which detractors accused of minimizing serious mental illness (because that's sort of what it does) was pulled by the retailer, forcing edgy teens to settle for writing "I'm Pro-Cancer" with sharpies on Hanes tees until Urban figures out another way to market something that will be widely read as offensive, petitioned against, and removed. It's the circle of life.

Anyway, here are some suggestions for more dumb shit for Urban to put on shirts :

Thank you, Urban, but I already have a special shirt that advertises my depression. It's oversized and has a butterscotch pudding stain on it. It hasn't been washed in a few months. I should wash it. Eh. I'm just going to lay here. Wonder if there's anything new on Netflix. I could check. Oh. My ex is logged into my account. No. That's cool. I have a lot of phone calls to go ignore anyhow, and it's time for a nap. My bones hurt.
