A Lululemon just opened up in Colbert and I's town, that's why he's doing this. I, also, will be back for yoga pants pics.

I like volleyball shorts better than yogapants.
Not that yogas are bad, vb pants are just BETTER.

Do yoga pants lift up a butt that sags to the point that it blends with the thighs into undifferentiated structures? I have a "friend" that could use some definition.

I couldn't GIS up a photo of this condition, I guess because women aren't proud of it. Does it have a well known name like "cankle"? - urban dictionary gives  "thass" with some definitions being

Thass; the thigh / ass crease or more importantly the lack there of.

where ones ass and thigh look like its merged together

For the record none of those images loaded.  On an unrelated note it's probably time for a professional cleaning of my hard drive.  Oh look, a coupon, $35 seems fair.

You want to wear my yoga pants? I doubt they fit. I'm sure your fat thighs will also cause pilling.

So really why is Lululemon in so much trouble?  Why is it wrong that they say, "We have chosen to concentrate on marketing our product with clothing available between sizes X and Y"?

I went to school with a kid called Chip, he was my first crush in 4th grade. I think his last name was Wilson. His dad owned OP clothes. Wonder if this is him (can't watch the video because of my country) TO THE GOOGLE MACHINE!!!!!

We went to his house for our end of year party. They had peacocks as pets.

Self-limiting your market share and blaming everyone else for not conforming to it seems like a curious business choice.

Not everyone can afford a Ferrari either.  Doesn't mean they have to market a 4 door econo coupe to let everyone have one.  I think part of Lululemon's marketing should be, "Not everyone can fit these, but if you do you've got a rocking body".  In short take advantage of the fact you can't get size XXL and play up the niche market aspect.

Possibly.  I think the second part of what I said is probably the bigger issue here.  The CEO of Ferrari doesn't go on TV and say, "Suck it, poor people!".

Now what kind of idiot would think this video would play well on fark?

There is no difference between the CEO's comments and over 75% of fark comments on the same issue.

I'm about as obnoxious as one gets when it comes to feminism/social justice, etc., and was fully expecting to be outraged, but I really couldn't find a problem with anything he said (outside of the horrendously phony apology video).

Divorce rates have of course been increasing for decades, and while the cause of this is likely far more complex, it would be ignorant to discount the increased acceptance of various women's lib movements as having some effect.  This increase of divorce is not a bad thing, it is good for everyone when bad relationships/marriages end, and the guy's out of context quote did not appear to place a value judgment on it either way.

It's also not unreasonable that ultra-tight-fitting pants would cause problems for people with larger legs/thighs/hips/etc., and once again, his comment quoted appeared to be a simple explanation of what should be that pretty evident concept, and again with no value judgment.

Because he was blaming his customers for what was essentially his own choice to use cheap materials that can't hold up to workouts.

Mr. MMM and I were in the grocery store for the sole purpose of stocking up on ice cream. Chick power walks past us in tight yoga pants and cami, apparently having just finished a grueling work out in the dairy section. Mr. MMM was trying with all his might to not look. I said as long as I get ice cream, he could check out dat ass.
