Michael Jordan Tests Godwin's Law
March 17, 2011

I just saw a Hanes commercial with Michael Jordan -- as I mentioned, I'm feeling a little sick or something and there turns out to be some kind of intercollegiate basketball tournament on television -- and Jordan has a Hitler mustache! Really: I really haven't seen anybody try this since about 1945. I guess I understand why a company would associate itself with a total and complete jerk like Jordan -- he is, after all, an iconic athlete despite being a complete and total jerk. But isn't this the kind of detail that would raise corporate objections?
