It takes a lot to get Kansas and Kansas State fans to agree on anything, but folks from both sides of the Sunflower State's fiercest rivalry came together this week in a quest to get a bigoted T-shirt off the shelves.

A Lawrence retailer relented and stopped selling an anti-Kansas State T-shirt this week after a barrage of complaints from both Wildcats and Jayhawks fans that the "Frank Martin mows my lawn" slogan on the back might have been just a tad offensive. The slam is directed at Kansas State basketball coach Frank Martin, who is of Cuban descent.

The privilege of looking like an insensitive clown wearing one of these shirts would have cost you $15.95. Or you could go with other gems like "Better dead than Red: Nebraska Sucks" or "Breathe if You Hate Missouri." Stay classy, folks.
