Horry Kow!

I'm not Asian. Never have been. With that caveat, I'm not sure what to make of this. The above image shows one of the hottest selling t-shirts in Wrigleyville. A lot of people find it racist and offensive. But a lot of people are buying it. I'm assuming those people are not offended by the shirt. I'm not sure where I come out on this...but Gordon Wittenmyer is pissed! What do you, all-knowing readers of web logs, think?

UPDATE: 4/19/08 @ 11:30: The Cubs were quick to act after the Sun-Times ran the article on Horry Kow t-shirt. The shirt has been pulled from the shelves of the vendor that was selling it. Take that free speech! Actually, the trademark issues involved here were pretty rock solid-once a gaggle of Cubs attorneys show up at your t-shirt shop's front door...probably time to do as they say. Actually, pretty ballsy of this t-shirt guy to go in the Sun-Times with this in the first place. Lesson learned.
