Normally I don’t pay much attention when I’m cruising through the Marketplace on Facebook. So much of the stuff on there has zero relevance to me, so unless it’s a tractor or a gun I usually keep scrolling. However, when I saw this post in the Where I Live County Deals & Steals page on Facebook I had to stop and take a minute. This woman’s advertisement was faker news than the corrupt CNN. I quickly glanced at the leg of the pants to see a humungous logo of two dudes playing polo and knew this was U.S. POLO ASSN.
I was upset. I knew this wasn’t real Polo. Real Polo is Polo Ralph Lauren. Everybody knows that. I was educated and cultured on the difference between USPA and real Polo at the young age of 18. It was one of my first weekends at college and I was getting ready to go out with my new teammates. Most of these guys were in crew neck t-shirts or collared shirts, and the common logo was a tiny little horse with a guy playing Polo on the left chest. Ralph Lauren, I knew that. Then they threw on some jeans and a pair of Air Max or Jordans. It’s what they all did. One of the new freshmen showed up in a red polo shirt, with a HUGE, I’m talking colossal, fake ass USPA logo on the chest. It was at this moment Dahntay fucked up.
Boiiiiiii if you don’t get your ass out of here!
Aye y’all come look at this dude!!
*gets phone out to take a video* YOOOOOOOO AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
I learned that day to never rock the USPA in fear of complete embarrassment. USPA is something you find on the clearance rack at Marshall’s, and to try to tell people they are buying Polo sweatpants for their little toddler is horrific. Me personally? My toddler’s going to be in whatever sweatpants his grandparents decide to gift him. Am I going out of my way to spend a ridiculous amount of money on Polo sweatpants that may be a little softer? Absolutely not. Now, some of the housewives in the stupid rich county outside of DC in which I reside have zero issue spending a lot of money on anything and everything. They also love getting a good deal. So when I saw this heifer trying to scam some Range Rover whipping “yoga instructor” soccer mom into buying fake Polo, I had to cut in. USPA uses low quality materials to make a low quality product, and these were not going to be as soft as real Polo.
I clicked on the post. I clicked on comment. I had to do it. I couldn’t help myself.
This is fake Polo
Y’all, I done pissed Kaylynne off, because she didn’t even reply to my comment. Instead, she tagged her man in it. He replied soon with, “what you talkin bout these are polo wtf” and for some reason I didn’t think my work was done. My next step was to post a link to the difference and then comment “this post is fake news! Sad!”
Later that evening when I had some free time I got back on Facebook to go see what chaos had ensued. It was to my dismay that when I clicked on the group, I was shown a message of:
This group is a closed group. Join this group to see the discussion, post and comment.
I did it. I somehow managed to get myself kicked out of a Facebook for sale page that I should not have been a part of to begin with. This was unfair and unjust! They can’t just silence me for telling them the truth! Now I feel even more motivated to educate the masses on the difference between USPA and Polo. Stay woke friends, don’t fall for it..
