Urban Outfitters - 'Fidel would be proud'

A female coworker of mine came in with a cute lil Chairman Mao cap. After some chiding, she told me she bought it at Urban Outfitters. Out of curiosity, I went to their website to see what they called the hat. False Alarm. It is just a 'newsboy cap'. Butnoticing a great deal of their other clothing had a distinct 'revolutionary' feel, I kept looking. Suspicions confirmed.



How about the Triple Five Soul Lined Fidel:

Perhaps, fucktard, your co-worker simply liked the hat and wasn't concerned about its political overtones? Either way, thanks for the investigative work. Can I go now?

Perhaps, Jimney Cricket, you can console my co-worker, her hat, and Chairman Mao, on the unemployment line.
