J.C. Penney: Idiotic shirts for children

Brother may not have gotten the looks, but he did get the brains.

Corduroy overalls and and white denim jackets have been replaced with graphic tees displaying ridiculous and, at times, indecipherable messages. After browsing shirts for girls on J.C. Penney’s website, we found ourselves baffled by this selection of garments. If our youth is wearing these monstrosities now, what will they be wearing as adults?   

The most ludicrous one of all, spotted by the Village Voice, has since been taken off the website. But it definitely takes the cake. Sexist message aside, it’s not even really all that clever. Here’s the fastest way to turn your daughter into a narcissist.

Here’s another one to the same effect that is still for sale. Forget math, science and history! Who needs em’ when ya got boys, shopping, dancing and music?

In all fairness to J.C. Penney, some of these aren’t terrible. This one is quite comical. Heck, we might even wear it!

There’s a lot going on here. What does it all mean? Is “Peace Please” the kitten’s message to us? Or is it our message to the kitten? Curious.

Justin Beaver. We don’t even know what to say about this one.

While this shirt may inaccurately portray hamsters to actually enjoy rolling around in a ball, it’s still kind of cute. We’d wear it.

Would you buy any of these for your kid?
