Is this supposed to be funny?

Let me start by saying that there is nothing funny for the families of the people whose feet have been washing up on BC's shorelines. Nor is there anything funny for the people whose feet they are, though I am guessing they are no longer particularly concerned about their feet.

But, you have to admit, it's funny in an absurd way -- six feet in less than a year (scratch that, it's actually just 5 feet; the one found in Campbell River turned out to be someone's idea of a funny prank -- an animal paw stuffed in a sneaker, padded with seaweed. Ewww) being found by ordinary people walking along our beautiful shores. I'm pretty sure this is not going to improve our tourism numbers.

So, yesterday, Hubby created a t-shirt for our Cafe Press store that I thought was pretty funny... when I showed it to people at work, the reactions were... well... "mixed" I guess. Some people thought it was in very poor taste. Naturally, I thought you needed to see it too. :)

So, is it funny? Tasteless? Meh? So awesome you have to have one? Buy it here.

When I saw it I laughed but then I squirmed.
