“Why do lesbians shop at Sports Authority?"/"Because they don’t like Dick’s.”

Dick’s Sporting Goods was founded by Richard “Dick” Stack in 1948. There’s a popular riddle on the name:

Q: Why do lesbians shop at Sports Authority?
A: Because they don’t like Dick’s.


“Why do lesbians like The Sports Authority?” was posted on Twitter by Sam Biller on April 6, 2008. Sports Authority went bankrupt in 2016, and its operations were purchased by Dick’s. The joke has also been told about sporting goods retailers other than Sports Authority, such as Modell’s, Cabela’s, Gander Mountain, Bass Pro Shops and Academy Sports.


Wikipedia: Dick’s Sporting Goods
Dick’s Sporting Goods, Inc. is an American sporting goods retail company, based in Coraopolis, Pennsylvania. The company was established by Richard “Dick” Stack in 1948, and has approximately 850 stores and 30,000 employees, as of 2018. Dick’s is the nation’s largest sporting goods retailer, and is listed on the Fortune 500.

Wikipedia: Sports Authority
Sports Authority, Inc. (formerly The Sports Authority) was a sports retailer in the United States that was headquartered in Englewood, Colorado. At its peak, Sports Authority operated more than 460 stores in 45 U.S. states, Canada and Puerto Rico.
(...)
On July 15, 2016, the online store closed operations, redirecting users to the Dick’s Sporting Goods website. On July 21, 2016, the purchase of Sports Authority’s intellectual property by rival Dick’s Sporting Goods was approved.

So not PC but still funny even to a gal who’s GLBT friendly: “Sporting lesbians go to Gander Mountain because they don’t like Dick’s.”
