Ever told a joke only answered with a retort of “That’s not funny!”   As if I am the one responsible for your lack of a sense of humor.

Meet the “That’s Not Funny of Decor”, one Daniell Rider, from Kimberly Kaye, Legal Insurrection:

Cotton. Cotton is now, apparently, a racist symbol that triggers people perusing craft stores. Or it was for Daniell Rider.

Rider was shopping at the local Hobby Lobby in Killeen, Texas when she passed a cotton decoration. But Rider did not continue on her merry hot gluing way, no, no. Rider decided to take a stand against this vile symbol of oppression. She snapped a picture of the Racistâ„¢ faux cotton stem, tapped on her Facebook app, and demanded the retailer remove the fake decorate cotton stems from their store.

“This decor is WRONG on SO many levels,” Rider typed feverishly, “there is nothing decorative about raw cotton…a commodity which was gained at the expense of African-American slaves. A little sensitivity goes a long way. PLEASE REMOVE this “decor”.” Rider demanded.
