JCPenney is in the news for something other than sluggish sales: the company is being talked about for a so-called "period skirt." Alas, this piece of clothing isn't designed with built-in protection or clever patterns meant to disguise accidents. The skirt is being mocked for looking like someone period-ed all over it.

"Really could've picked a better place for that "flower" design..." reads the viral Imgur photo of the JCPenney catalogue.

On the website, the Worthington Side Slit Pencil Skirt simply looks like a floral skirt.

Regardless, the skirt is now known as the period skirt.
