Now that it’s officially official that Mitt Romney will be the Republican candidate against Barack Obama in November, we can finally start talking about what matters—Urban Outfitters t-shirts. Never one to let something that could be ironic go by without becoming ironic, Urban Outfitters has stocked its on-line store with shirts featuring both Romney and Obama (and Ron Paul, but haha). But which one is more ironic?
Let’s take a look.
Although both shirts feature the candidates impersonating someone of a different race (Romney, MC Hammer; Obama, Tim Tebow), I’m going to have to give it to MC Romney. The Tebow thing, that’s so 2011; 2 Legit 2 Mitt, on the other hand, that’s referencing something “old” and in the 1990s. Therefore, it’s cool and ironic, which is the most ironic thing of all. Plus, that pun is pretty great.
