International Women's Day Photo of the Day

In honor of International Women's Day I give you this photo of a care instructions label from a pair of men's pants:
A firestorm set off in a pair of men's trousers has left a British apparel company deflecting allegations of sexism and denying that it thinks laundry is strictly a woman's job.

It's not every day that clothing care instructions spark controversy. But that's what happened after British journalist Emma Barnett picked up her boyfriend's pants while tidying the house.

Underneath the usually customary "machine wash warm" instructions, the tag offered a less appropriate option: “OR – GIVE IT TO YOUR WOMAN, IT’S HER JOB.”

Barnett tweeted an image of the tag on Monday, prompting an immediate outcry on social media and demands to out the company, Madhouse.
It's a shame that we live in a day where so few people have a sense of humor.

If a lanudry tag is serious business, then what do liberals think is funny? The president busted out laughing during an interview when the subject of unemployment going through the roof was brought up. The liberal reporter asked if he was 'punch drunk' and Obama brushed it off as 'gallows humor'.

Saw that on the local TV news.

Amused, I was.

Wife wasn't.
