  1. Don't you feel that making money off selling witty BP t-shirts is a little tasteless?

  2. Isn't the same company making the same mistakes a little tasteless?

  3. I think that this is good commentary and satire. It doesn't bother me a bit--the Disney folks, of course, will go nuts.

  4. The t-shirt design is clever, but selling a shirt to make a profit isn't doing anything to help the situation. I guess making light of the tragedy makes some people feel better about their helplessness.

  5. So, it would be ok to sell the Tshirt if 10% went to cleaning up the gulf?

  6. I love it, I think it's making a statement. Personally I would sell it and give a portion to the cause it is addressing. But to me, whether you keep all the profits to yourself is up to you as a individual. I think it is still putting a good message out there in a witty way. It's still putting attention where it should be. I love it! I'm a Little Mermaid fan and this does not bother me at all, I think it's great.
