God Hates Goods Tackles Kittens and Other Animals

Posted on: December 13th, 2012 at 11:14 am by

You may have seen some of these bills pasted around the Lower East Side. Signs claiming to understand what “God Hates.” What appears to be jokester street art is unsurprisingly some guerrilla advertising for God Hates Goods, a line of clothing and ephemera whose sole purpose is to “raise eyebrows and standards.”

God Hates Goods offers tshirts, mugs, and tote bags with your choice of an animal to hate. At the moment, choices include kittens, puppies, bunnies, ponies, and chipmunks.

Below is an explanation of their product from the website:

God Hates Goods is a line of clothing and ephemera intended solely to raise eyebrows and standards. We do not, and never will, claim to hate any animal, vegetable or mineral including but not limited to kittens, rainbows, or cupcakes. The intention is not to spread hate but instead to poke fun at those who do. Therefore, a portion of all proceeds from God Hates Goods goes to human rights.

Disclaimer: These statements are based on complete nonsense and have no intention of offending ethereal beings nor persons living or dead affiliated with any religious party or otherwise. Names have been changed to protect the innocent. Any likeness to persons or things, real or imaginary should be considered circumstantial and purely flattering.
