Old Navy Restricts Drunken Revelry To Ages 13 And Up

Michael found this festive “I Rish I Was Drunk” button in an Old Navy store earlier this month. The fine print at the bottom warns, “Not intended for 12 years and under.” Ages thirteen and up? Pass the Guinness, apparently.

“I wouldn’t want my 13 year old wearing the pin,” grumbles Michael.

Is this an overprotective safety warning about the sharpness of button backings on the part of Old Navy, or a horrible insight into the drinking habits of America’s middle schoolers?
