IBR Merch, the official store of the Intergalactic Business Report, has removed another controversial item from its wildly popular online site. We answer all your questions about the event.
Which tee shirt was pulled?
IBR Merch removed a tee shirt from its “robot love” collection. The shirt stated, “Robot Lovers do it in the Butt.”
What was so bad about the tee shirt?
People complained that it made no sense and was “weird.” They also seemed to have an immediate negative reaction to the idea of a robot lover and also to the suggestion of anal sex.
What is a “robot lover” anyway?
We feel it could be either a robot who is in love, a robot who has sex with you, a person who pretends to be a robot while he has sex with you, or probably that last one.
Why would someone pretend to be a robot while having sex with people?
Why would you pretend to be a person while you have sex with a robot, is the better question.
Why was the “B” in “Butt” capitalized?
Why is the whatever in your name capitalized? Same reason.
Can I still buy one if I really want it?
Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will sell it to you because we made a pledge a long time ago that if it’s about money we will find a way to do it.
Do Robot Lovers really do it in the Butt?
What are the sales of the Robot Lovers do it in the Butt tee shirt?
Zero so far, but you could be the first one.
Why would anyone wear a shirt that says, “Robot Lovers do it in the Butt”?
To show pride.
I don’t get it. I could see something like, “Pirates do it in the booty” because that would be an actual play on words. The Robot Lovers thing doesn’t make any sense.
Thank you for the idea. We will make that shirt now.
Should I be pretending to be a robot when I have sex?
It’s up to you but yeah, probably.
There’s something wrong with you, right?
Did you think this article would actually get people to buy a shirt that says, “Robot Lovers do it in the Butt” with a capital “B”?
In retrospect, was that a bad idea?
Yes, but not worse than any of our other promotional ideas.
Is this finally over?
Is it now?
The only business news in the universe that matters.
