"Wife Beater" T-Shirts in the News

(from M Zone wire reports) Hingham, MA -- After receiving complaints from women's groups, a Massachusetts store apologized for advertising so-called "wife beater" t-shirts.

According to stereotype, the tank top style t-shirts are worn by abusive men. So, in order to not offend the women's groups but still have truth in adverstising, the shirts will now be sold as "Buckeye fan" tees.

Said the store owner, "Wife beater, Buckeye fan...you say tomato, I say ta-mato."

In a related story, no word yet if "naked chick mud flaps," frequently spotted on pick-up trucks and Camaros around Columbus, will be renamed as well to reflect their popularity among the Tosu faithful.

I can't believe you didn't mention the mullet, which goes together with Camaros and wife-beaters like peas and carrots.

Check out "Mullet Hunting at the Ohio State Fair" here: http://www.columbuswired.net/Columns/Sirk/MulletHunting_091402.htm

There's a great photo gallery at the bottom of the page.

And to all the Buckeyes out there, notice the web address, that's a Columbus online magazine there.

The shame here is that the wife-beater is a truly fantastic item of clothing. Yes, I admit it, I have a drawer full of them. They keep your torso nice and warm without getting all bunched up and sweaty in the armpits.
