(Newser) – Joe Biden's F-bomb has inspired not only a Twitter feed and a haiku contest but also—paging the Inevitably Dept—a slew of "truly unwearable gear," Brenna Ehrlich writes on Mashable. Those with a penchant for bedecking themselves in political slogans can choose between "It's a big f--ing deal" underwear, T-shirts, dog T-shirts, and aprons. And then there's the commemorative toilet paper, too, which at least might be used up by the time the phrase gets old.

The reluctance of many of the items "to actually spell out the word in question" only adds to their unwearability, Ehrlich notes.
