Atheist Shoe Discrimination

Atheist ShoesSpeaking of mistrust and discrimination against atheists, here's an interesting study from an atheist shoe company. (What the hell is an atheist shoe company? Do their shoes lack soles? Ba dump bump.) They experimented with different ways of shipping their shoes to the United States. Half of the packages were sealed with the company's trademark tape with the word, ATHEIST, repeated over and over. The other half were sealed with plain brown tape. Sadly, you can probably guess the results. The packages with the ATHEIST tape took on average 3 days longer to reach the customers, and even worse, were 10 times more likely to be 'lost' in transit.

The company learned their lesson. On all future packages to the U.S., they're sticking to plain brown tape.
