Reader response to "What a bunch of boobs"

Hi Joe,

I liked your column. As plausible as your explanations for the picture are, I suspect that there’s one you over looked.




“They’re in my shirt, they’re in my shirt!”

“They’re in all my clothes!”

“I forgot my epi-pen!”


“Head for the water!”

“What about Louis?”

“Forget him, he’s gone! Goooooo!”

“We can’t just leave him, he stood up to Dad when no one else would!”

“You have to let go Kevin! The bees are gaining!”

I too enjoyed your column and podcast concerning the controversial commercial practices of Abercrombie and Fitch, but I felt that one important point went without discussion:

Isn’t there a base level of idiocy in a clothing company advertising using naked people? Wouldn’t that be like if Pepsi came out with a billboard showing a chalk-lipped teenager dying of dehydration?

As always,
