A Zany Life

News You Can Wear?

CNN.com is experimenting with an alternate format, the news shirt.  You’ll find them by clicking on the little t-shirt icons next to the news headlines on the CNN website. I wondered who would wear these headlines: 

Russian Missile Obliterates Spy Plane

Citizen Tickets Cop for $540 Violation

Blind man grabs, pummels intruder

Synchronized swimmers faint in unison

Maybe it’s me, but this feels like this a marketing strategy gone berserk. According to the CNN FAQ  “With CNN Shirts you can wear the news.”  The question is. . . why would I want to?
