    I don`t know if it will work, but I like his idea.

    It would be fun to take it even further and find a bunch of overweight, middle-aged, stinky gamers to stuff themselves into A&F clothes too, particularly showing off their pasty-white, Cheeto-dusted bare gut, then post the pics all over the Internet... perhaps a meme will be born.

    That said, I really don`t care how A&F markets their stuff, it`s their business and they can do whatever the fu*k they want with it. Don`t like it? Then don`t buy their stuff.

    These internet causes that originate on reddit have such a short attention span. First, they hated Chick Fil-A for just having an opinion. Then Papa John`s because the owner is...rich? And then Abercrombie and Fitch for not donating their excess clothing. Armchair internet activism is so lame.

    Look, doing this makes the assumption that Abercrombie and Fitch had any dignity to be stolen in the first place. They`ve been a joke for years. It`s shorthand for "I`m a wannabe asswipe who thinks clothes can change my social status." It`s already a walking punchline.

    Honestly, we should just laugh and ignore the CEO`s comments, instead of giving him the satisfaction of thinking he got under our skin. Because really, such an impotent fool should be incapable of doing so.

    I don`t know anyone who wears A&F.
    Though the local store closed recently. Everyone rejoiced because they could actually breathe on their way to the bookstore. I`d suggest all of their employees get checked for lung cancer with all the toxic fumes they`re forced to scent the store with.

    @ McGovern - thanks for the support.

    If you guys think the stuff I post is bad, you should see what gets rejected. I think IAB doesn`t trust my taste level.

    P.S. I vote `eggs given to dog` as the worst fart food.

    @Gerry - hmm, eggs given to a dog is tough to beat, but I`m going to go with dry roasted peanuts. Is that an option on the list?

    Andrew they didn`t protest Papa Johns because they are rich. They chastised them because they are stingy. Healthcare will kill his business? he has to raise his prices 12 cents a pie to offset the costs. He lives in a castle mansion yet his employees can barely live off what he pays them. Glad you see no problem with any of that. For the record I`m not saying they should be paid a huge sum to do menial work, there`s a medium though and minimum wage isn`t it.

    Oystah, you can vote for any fart food you like. I went with egg`s cause you can tell what they are. They smell like they taste and somehow, knowing what it was is worse to me.

    Oh, I like the new avatar, but I liked the old one with you licking mustard off a mans belly. Maybe you could combine them and lick mustard off of Magic`s tummy ?

    Love this idea, and the one about the fat gamers. I don`t know anyone who wears A&F clothes, or I would donate. Oh, and how much plastic surgery has the CEO of A& F had on his face, anyway? And yet he looks the way he does...

    "why anyone would buy anything with a business` name on it baffles me. you pay THEM to advertise THEIR product. hmm."
    For the same reason some people don`t mind paying hundreds of dollars just to have an apple sticker on the back of their phone/laptop.
    It`s a brand, and like any other brand it`s the name that sells, not the clothes. Glasses with the brand name can cost over 200$ easily, but the same glasses without the brand cost less than 10$.

    I would NEVER wear ANYTHING with a conspicuous name brand on it. It used to be whenever I saw someone wearing a branded T-shirt like A&F, Old Navy, Tommy Hilfiger, Aeropostal, Hollister, etc., I would go up to them and ask, "So, how much do they pay you to walk around advertising their crap?" Over time, though, increasing numbers of them would simply give me a vacant, slack-jawed look indicating that they didn`t even understand the question, so I stopped doing it.

    complain all you want. I know it`s frustrating, but trying to be one up on others isnt going away. If A&F were to go away, something else would replace it. You might want to think in your own life what you own that seperates you from the pack.

    This guy is a tool. He doesn`t have a clue. lennyc has it nailed. A&F have a target market, skinny people. Lane Bryant has a target market, big people. I don`t hear people bitching about them not selling to everyone. I have heard people bitching that Hot Topic started carrying plus size clothes.

    A&F can do what they want. Don`t like it? Don`t buy there. But bitch equally or shut up.

    ive never bought A&F clothes. I dont know where you people are from but in highschool, 8 years ago, if you wore that stuff you were considered "uncool" aka a douchebag wanna be surfing poser. If you came to our beach wearing that stuff we would put surf wax on your car windows and write "go back to Arizona". We were stupid kids back then

    Way to hijack a thread Gerry. An interesting post turned to crap by you. I hope you are proud of yourself. You ruined this poor guy`s post by taking his pic and putting it 2 posts up in another person`s submission`s thread..

    Not very `I should be a mod behavior` now is it?

    Why rain on everyone else`s parade because you can`t have every little thing (or post) you want?

    I would expect more from a seasoned IAB member. Lose the `tude` dude, it`s not attractive when old timers whine.

    They denied your submission. It happens to everyone. Get over it. Damn.

    As for your fart submission well..........

    12chars, "Not very `I should be a mod behavior` now is it?"
    Never have I ever said I wanted to be a mod or applied to be a mod. As for carrying a pic over, yes I did link two threads together. You win extra internet points when you do that.

    But I should stop commenting on this, you obviously enjoy bitching and I don`t want to spoil your fun.

    Lie to yourself Gerry. When madest left, and even before, you were all, "if I was a mod this, and if I was a mod that." "Things would get posted earlier if I were a mod, more things would be posted everyday, if I were a mod." "This wouldn`t happen if I was a mod"

    I have seen you write it. Like I said, you can deny it, but you are lying to yourself.

    Why stop commenting now? Did you sling enough mud and draw enough attention away from his post to your non-posted fart submission?
    Not the first time you have gotten on other people`s submissions and bitched about your`s not being put up. Remember the `bunny` one? Classic gerry classic. You are the only person allowed to be mean or complain though right?

    I don`t think we have A&F in the UK, but we do have Hollister, who is the same company. So Brits... use your Hollister stuff.
