I hope you all are familiar with The Onion - that biting and often close-to-home paper that relishes in sarcasm and wit. If not, get to it immediately. The Onion is an incredible place to turn when the drudgery of real news gets too much (and Stewart or Colbert aren't on).
The Onion today featured a video article about Gap unveiling a new line of clothing "For Kids By Kids".
Of course, we all know what the video is talking about. It comes as no news to most of us that Gap (and most of the major clothing distributors) have their clothes manufactured in the kind of squalor we relegate in our commercialized minds to the realm of fiction. It's easier to not even think about where the clothes come from.
The question comes to mind, though. What would children's reaction be if they actually knew where their clothing came from?
Just putting that out there. You should watch the video and check out The Onion some more now. No, seriously.
