I'm offended pt 2

I noticed this yesterday at work: we sell a t-shirt which says "I [shamrock] BEER." It was cute at the time, a substitution of a shamrock for the usual heart where the word "love" would be. Today I started ranting about it. About how it further perpetuates the racial stereotype of the drunken Irishman. We're not selling shirts making fun of the old stereotypes of the lazy Mexican, or the uneducated Black, or the stingy Jew, or the overachieving Asian, but the drunken Irishman's OK!

FYI, you have only 37 more days to get your "Happy Drunken Irishman Day" shirts! :P
