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.

Srsly.

Whether or not you're a Mitt Romney fan, you have to admit, this shirt is pretty punny!

Ugh. Not again!

One Million Moms is rekindling their feud with JCPenney, but this time around it has nothing to do with Ellen DeGeneres.

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

One Million Moms Strikes Again! Goes After Urban Outfitters!

Urban Outfitters Girls Kissing One Million Moms

Those 40,000 One Million Moms are at it again!

The group, who highly opposed Ellen DeGeneres’ role as the JCPenney spokeswoman earlier this year, have launched another attack — this time, at clothing retailer Urban Outfitters!

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!!

Urban Outfitters' "Tranny" Greeting Card Sparks Outrage

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooGay Gay GayUrban Outfitters

urban-outfitters-transphobic-greeting-card-jack-and-jill-rhyme-2.jpg

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.

Thoughts???

Even congressmen are getting involved!

In a letter written to UO, the congressmen express their disdain
