That would be the coy Tom Bihn, handbag designer extraordinary.
The bag’s designer Tom Bihn never guessed that purses with the message, “We’re sorry our president is an idiot. We didn’t vote for him” — inscribed in French — would be blowing out of the stores.
“It is a mystery, but since we launched the bags with the label sewn, sales have doubled,” said Bihn, 43. “It is a record in the history of the company.”
He denies the message is targeting US President George W. Bush (news – web sites).
“It depends on either your nationality, or the president you think is an idiot; you choose.”
Ha ha ha! And nobody can accuse Tom of partisanship, because he told us himself that his little canard isn’t aimed at our Prez. Of course not, that’s why the lettering is in French.
Stick to designing handbags, Tom. Leave the comedy to professionals.
