The Weirdest Penn State Stuff Available On The Internet

If you type “Penn State stuff” into Google, you won’t be surprised by the results — T-shirts, hats, decor, blah, blah, blah.

Before you clock me on this one, know that I do understand where this one was going. “Shhhhhh, the Nittany Lions are on” displayed across your soles on gameday? Inspired!

My criticism here is the logo choice. “Shhhhhh, the Penn State are on” will make people question if you even got your degree at all:

Imagine paying more than five dollars for this giant white sheet with a logo on it. If you don’t have superhuman vision like the rest of us, it just says “Penn State”:

Think it’s stupid to brand your bread? We don’t.
