Oh, Fox... How Sensitive!

Fox recently announced that no show on their networks will ever use the word retarded again, because of how offensive it is. While I admire them for noticing (after receiving a letter written from the National Down Syndrome Society -- so maybe I just admiring them for being able to read!), perhaps it's a bit too early to praise Fox's progresive step forward. Right next to the news article I read was an advertisement for a website that sells t-shirts like this:

Sure I can't blame Fox for the location of an advertisement near a news article about them... but it made for a good post. ;)

Updated with apologies to my brother-in-law, who originally posted the link to this story, for not giving him due credit.
