Sale page here.

At least there's a green shirt in there that's got a just a little bit of black in it. For diversity, you know.

OK tasteless ad or not, that pic is pretty funny.

Yeah, it sounds like a great deal, but when you show up they're always "temporarily out of stock" on 16 year old slave girls. And just try to get a rain check.
 
2011-01-17 09:27:20 PM  
Shouldn't it be 40% off?

Only if you purchase a mule.

The mule is free with every purchase.

Maybe it was an Australian shop really keen on getting rid of some ARF Kiwi merchandise.

What about the toppings? Do they contain potassium benzoate?

Apparently you missed the "three/fifths of the regular price sale" aspect.

Free at last, free at last, thank the Lord Almighty it's free at last with purchase of equal or greater value!

Free enterprise.
It's not like black people surf or anything. Sheesh.

MLK Day has officially jumped the shark!!
 
2011-01-18 01:11:51 AM  
If Dr. Martin Luther King were alive today he would probably have a laugh about this.

I met him one time in 1962 in Memphis, TN. I was walking down the street minding my own business. I walked around a corner, a man walked up and hit me right in my chest. I looked up and it's Dr. Martin Luther King.

I said, "Dr. King?" and he said "Oops, I thought you were somebody else."

It was Martin Luther King Day yesterday? Huh, did not realize it. Well, Happy/Merry/ Martin Day. Er, good job!

:-D

Homey don't surf
 
2011-01-18 01:27:01 AM  
I think it's hilarious.

I love that even the conservative OC Weekly would advertise a coupon for this. But why are the only states with sensible medical policies so damn expensive to live in? Grrrr...

When I was in college, the dining hall liked to make special meals for holidays, like Octoberfest, Valentines day, etc. So they made a special Martin Luther King Day dinner. On the dinner menu: fried chicken and watermelon.

Oops.

/fried chicken and watermelon are yummy though.

I was told there was to be no fried chicken and watermelon...

When you are 39 years old, where will you be, and what will you be doing?
 
2011-01-18 01:42:59 AM  
I bet this is going to offend every black person who likes to surf. I'll call him to find out what he thinks.
 
2011-01-18 01:54:19 AM  
The masses will be racist one way or the other.
These days the shepherds lead them the wrong way.

/Black shops nationwide respond with cracker sales, 30% off anything white boys want.

With these guys being surfers, I am guessing that must have snorted a lot of marijuana for that advertisement to make sense

2011-01-18 02:01:06 AM  
Terrible move on their part. This is an idea that should have been shot down.
 
2011-01-18 02:05:01 AM  
Stay classy, Orange County!
 
2011-01-18 02:09:10 AM  
As the individual who alerted the Weekly to the ad said, "This is not acceptable. It's not funny, amusing nor respectable."

Oh but the fact that this is so not funny actually makes it so COMPLETELY funny.
 
2011-01-18 02:09:33 AM  
As one of fark's resident black guys, I think its pretty hilarious.

SpikeStrip: i have a dream that we'll learn to swim?


They never will, what, with that extra bone in their ankle.

It's good for running fast, but makes them less buoyant, so they can't swim.

/sometimes, I feel bad about making posts like these. I mean, what if someone actually believes them?

Wrong_Intentions: I must be racist, because I laughed.


Oh hell, MLK probably would have laughed.

I mean, he had crackers hunting him across half the country.

If the absolute worst that would happen to him was a cheesy sorta bad taste ad, I'm pretty sure he'd see it as a bit of progress over all. You know...only 142 years after the 14th Amendment was passed...
