Cool Story Babe, Now Go Make Me A Sandwich
There seems to be a new craze going on in the apparel world playing on the “Cool story, bro” phrase, but now that it’s hit a mainstream store like Walmart, people aren’t having it. The Frisky writes,
In Vandalia, IL, Kayla Hyde shared with her Twitter followers her disgust over a black T-shirt in Walmart’s clothing section. With blue lettering reading “Cool Story Babe,” white lettering below orders the “babe” to “Now Go Make Me a Sandwich.”
While this message is stupid and gross, I’m not surprised to find it on Walmart’s shelves. I’ve been amazed by the lame sexist jokes that I occasionally hear (always from men), including, “Want to hear a funny joke? Women’s rights,” and “Why did the woman cross the road? I don’t know, but what is she doing out of the kitchen?”
Hmm… what do you think? Is this disgusting sexism or do people just need to lighten up?
