Urban Outfitters is selling a HIGHlarious new t-shirt that will satisfy all your political humor desires.
Catering to what some say are "hipster Republicans," a new line of shirts have popped up that say such catchy phrases like "2 Legit 2 Mitt" and "Mitt is the Sh-t."
Nothing can compare to a T-shirt with the face of Mittens attached to the body of MC Hammer though.
Whether or not you're a Mitt Romney fan, you have to admit, this shirt is pretty punny!

Ugh. Not again!
Like Urban Outfitters, the conservative group is outraged over the retailer's decision to feature a lesbian couple sporting wedding bands inside the May catalog. The caption
Another week, another scandal for Urban Outfitters.
The Anti-Defamation League of Philadelphia fired off a scathing letter to the hipster retail chain on Holocaust Remembrance Day condemning the sale of their $100 Wood Wood Kellog Tee.
40,000 One Million Moms are at it again!
One Million Moms ranted on their website about the picture (above), stating:
"The April 2012 catalog from Urban Outfitters has begun arriving in home mailboxes the last couple of days. On page two of this catalog is a picture of two women kissing in a face holding embrace! The ad and catalog are clearly geared toward teenagers. The content is offensive and inappropriate for a teen who is the company's target customer."
GASP! Two girls kissing…seriously?!? How ridiculous!
We think these moms should pick up some OTHER hobbies in their free time, like maybe teaching themselves some tolerance, perhaps?! Just a suggestion.
We hope they end up dropping this case just as they did with Ellen’s!!

Oops they did it again!
After successfully pissing off Irish Americans, Urban Outfitters is already offending another group: the LGBT community.
Advocates are up in arms over what Urban describes as a "charming" transphobic greeting card based off the classic Jack & Jill nursery rhyme. The card reads:
Jack and Jill,
Went up the hill,
So Jack could see Jill's fanny,
But Jack got a shock,
And an eyeful of cock,
Because Jill was a closet tranny.
The card was only available on UO's UK website and has since
been yanked from the website sold out.
So far no comment from Urban Outfitters.
Irish Americans are not okay with Urban Outfitter's newest collection of St. Patrick's Day clothing.
Finding the clothes offensively perpetuating negative stereotypes, letters are pouring in asking the retailer to pull the line.
Even congressmen are getting involved!
In a letter written to UO, the congressmen express their disdain
According to multiple sources, Ted Marlow is most likely reclaiming the Urban Outfitters throne now that Glen Senk is gone.
No official word has been released yet, but everyone seems pretty sure it's happening.
If UR unaware of Ted, he was the global president from 2001-2010 as it expanded from North America to Europe.
Those on Twitter seem pretty excited about the news! Are U??
