O M G - Surf Shop: 20% Off Black Merchandise for MLK Day

When you think of your prototypical "surfer dude", you generally don't think "brain surgeon".

"...when the country is celebrating the birthday of, arguably, the most influential civil-rights activist, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., boasting a sale with "20% Off All Black Products" is about as bad an idea as bad ideas go."

...Putting the head of Dr. King on the body of a surfer wearing a wetsuit to promote a MLK Day sale is worthy of a giggle. People like a well-Photoshopped gag. But the rest is pretty damn inexcusable. The culprit? Thalia Surf Shop in Laguna Beach.

I mean, Duuuuuuuuuuuuuude!


...what were they thinking?
"Buy one, get one FREE AT LAST!"
