Nobody likes it when the summer ends and you roll into autumn and it gets colder and you don’t go out as much and have way less fun, but the end of the summer this year did seem to mean that the 50 Shades of Grey buzz that every unappreciated housewife/most unsexed girls/the entirety of the female population was promoting finally died down. This was pretty great because although it was pretty funny hearing stories from my flatmate King Shoey about how he went to dinner with his mom and she told him that she had been reading 50 Shades of Grey it was pretty boring and also kinda lame to see almost every girl ever go completely mental for some idiot guy who wasn’t even real. If you want to read what everyone at Sick Chirpse actually thought about it, check out 50 Shades of Shit.
But yeah, despite the hype dying out and nobody really talking about it anymore thankfully, there is still obviously a market for really bad taste 50 Shades of Grey merchandise, and this comes in the form of baby’s clothing. Yeah, that’s right, clothes with a phrase about 50 Shades of Grey that you dress a baby in. I like to think of myself as pretty liberal guy (legalise weed yo) but I really can’t understand why anybody would want to dress their baby in these fvcking clothes with these horrible smutty phrases on promoting a really badly written book that is basically softcore pornography (from what I’ve heard, I definitely haven’t read it).

I mean, I don’t have kids and I don’t plan to anytime soon but some of my friends do and whenever they talk about them they go all mushy eyed about how much they love them blah blah blah – kinda like Robbie Williams on Graham Norton the other night – and with that in mind I seriously can’t comprehend how they could put their little bundle of joy in a little onesie that says something like ‘9 months ago my mommy read 50 Shades of Grey’ because it’s just creepy, gross and really really low key and it’s going to make everyone think you and your baby are fvcking twats. That isn’t even the worst of all the phrases by a long shot.
Check out the rest of these horrible, horrible pieces of merchandise (even more horrible than the Liverpool Stadium Shirt I posted about earlier) and question how we can live in a world where companies can make a profit off selling trash like this:
