Bitter Grounds - espresso fueled ramblings

What happens when you combine stupidity, fashion and a failure of common sense? You get this:

 

Zara's idiotic striped shirt

 

Look vaguely familiar anyone? Hmm?

Wonder how bankrupt a person's imagination must be to think this is a cool fashion for little girls?  Thankfully, Zara has pulled it, but it took some fussng from the public before the company figured out it's designers were ripping off their designs from concentration camp wear. They've issued the usual "yada yada" apology. I'd be impressed if I thought, for a nanosecond, they were truly apologetic, but it's all about turd polishing with companies now. "Gee we're sorry if any offense was taken" or "Wow if we caused offense" basically means "crap we were caught".
