Crappy Pan-Am Scam Games Made In China T-Shirts Returned

TORONTO — Pan Am Games organizers are replacing thousands of shirts for volunteers after discovering the logos may wear away after washing.

In an email to The Canadian Press, spokesman Kevin Dove says nearly 60,000 polo shirts were ordered for volunteers.

The garments were produced in China by Canadian affordable apparel brand Joe Fresh.


pachi-ticketsJoe Fresh is Loblaws, how much did the Weston clan contribute to Wynne’s campaign?

Nice to see a “Canadian” company making crap in China.

And what’s with this Fag Chipmunk logo mascot thing?

    …how much did the Weston clan contribute to Wynne’s campaign?”.
    Zero dollars. But, according to posted Elections Ontario records,

    Loblaws Inc. contributed at total of $5,200 (two different cheques on November 28, 2014) to the Ontario Liberals.

    (I also checked “George Weston Inc.” and “Weston” and there are no records of contributions).

    • Thanks David. Nice to see a “Canadian” company making crap in China.

      Try Joe Fresh and/or Joe Mimram.

      • David Murrell

        Nope, nothing there. It is usually the head office (Loblaws or George Weston, the holding company) which does the bribing.

    “And what’s with this Fag Chipmunk logo mascot thing?”
    To prove you are part of the tolerant brigade these days, you have to prove how gay you are and how anti Judaeo/Christian you are. Does that help?

    • Got it;)

      • The_Infidel_01

        Cool, just don’t want them to wear you down and pull you to the dark side. But never fear the infidel is here to save the day (hey that has a nice ring to it, don’t you think?).

      • Petey

        Hey. How come you can say fag but I can’t say nigger?

        I feel discriminated against. Oh woesy me.

        • For the same reason anyone can call me a honkey. There is a very specific PC totem pole of acceptable speech.

          Anyone can say anything about a straight, male, honkies who are on the bottom. But no-one can say anything about blacks (especially lesbian) who are on the top of the totem pole.

          If you are a white fag, you are in the middle of the totem pole and can be slandered with immunity by almost anyone.

          For a more detailed explanation, check with the PC police at your local university diversity office.

          • Petey

            Why, it’s almost like there’s a hierarchy of the victminology here. I thought we were all equally oppressed under the Man.

    • It’s called an asinine obsession.

      I believe it’s a gay porcupine. Introducing one of these animals to a bum darts tournament is a sure fire way of breaking it up, though I am not sure it’s as effective as crushed glass in the Vaseline.

    A trio consisting of a white, a black, and a gray squirrel would have been more inspiring characters for this fiscal trainwreck/ rent seekers treat. For additional local nuance, the gray squirrel (with the vinegar smirk) could be shown shoving carrots up the butts of her ‘surprised” fellow mascots.
    Or go with raccoon mascots, the politicians of the animal world.

    • I think they should have incorporated the veggies.

        T shirt would definitely fit.

  • Waffle

    I’m guessing that the cut-rate polos couldn’t take the stretching on the phat “volunteers”.

    BTW, has anybody noticed that “news” reports are ultra-careful to distinguish between the “paid” staffers and the (presumably unpaid) volunteers? It would appear that the only compensation for the volunteers was 2 defective polo shirts.

    • mobuyus

      The volunteers are pounding the drum for transportation and accommodations. Their earnestness takes a big hit with every limousine disgorging liberals and smoked salmon socialist at five star hotels these shenanigans attract.

      • Waffle

        Is it just me — my eyesight is really bad — seriously. But how come I keep seeing Pan-Scam??

    Almost pedobear!

    A message from Albertastan. Don’t knock Joe Fresh t-shirts.
    The problem must have been with the logo fading. I own several Joe Fresh t-shirts which are 100% cotton and they’re awesome (basic styles and neatly stitched). For $8.00, you can’t beat the price and they even go on sale at 2/$12. Even their t-shirts that are ultra thin and synthetic something with painted on designs have lasted for me? Some of their jeans and ski jackets are decent also. Everything is made in China these days.
