Stop it! Everyone stop it right now!
Lululemon puns are totally out of control.
For those still unfamiliar with what happened with the apparel retailer, Lululemon has pulled from its shelves a large number of black luon yoga pants, which had been deemed too see-through.
Granted, it was bound to happen, considering the nature of the story at hand.
But we’re seeing a deluge of yoga pants puns, the likes of which mankind has never seen.
Look at all these headlines:
- “Lululemon stock drops as yoga pants expose problems” — Reuters
- “Yoga-Pants Supplier Says Lululemon Stretches Truth” — The Wall Street Journal
- “Sheer Lululemon pants would sell, say cheeky observers” — CBC
- “Yoga Pants Reveal Lululemon Shortcomings” — The Financial Times
- “See-through pants? How Lululemon became the butt of the Internet’s jokes” — The Globe and Mail
- “It’s clear to see: Yoga pants were too sheer” — The Columbus Dispatch
- “I See London, I See France: Lululemon Wears Crisis Well” — MarketingDaily
- “Lululemon yoga pant recall sheer comfort for cheaper brands” — The Lantern
Yuk yuk! Once you delve into those articles and many others, you realise how rampant the puns are:
- “Another problem like this could leave the company with a lasting (ahem) bum rap.” — Jena McGregor at The Washington Post
- “It is clear from the disclosed information that [Lululemon] has not yet gotten to the bottom of the problem (pun intended).” — Faye Landes, analyst at Cowen & Co, to The Financial Times
- “Are these see-through pants a cover-up for falling revenue? — Amanda Holpuch at The Guardian
- “The company’s profits are going downward, dog.” — Robin Abcarian at the Los Angeles Times
- “Investors usually like transparency. But not in this case.” — Anne D’Innocenzio and Michelle Chapman at the Associated Press
- “And just like that, shareholders ran to cover their own bottom (lines, that is)” — Lydia Dishman at Forbes
Of course, Twitter-folks would never have allowed themselves to be left behind for yoga-punmageddon:

I “recall” when Lululemon was nonexistent and the Italian Stallion ate raw eggs and jogged the Philly dawn in thick baggy cotton MAN sweats!
