Merching Orders

A plea: this word “merch” needs to go away. It sounds like something from a Dr. Seuss first draft, or an involuntary bodily process. (“Dude, I gotta merch.”) One of the victims from Paris sold t-shirts for the band, and all the reports listed him as the “merch guy” as though selling t-shirts was something not to be proud of.

Ralph Lauren and Tommy Hilfiger sell t-shirts. Stop with “merch.”

Also, if someone listening in might post the links in the Comment Section, I would be grateful.
