After Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) announced her decision not to seek reelection in 2016, the underwear retailer Fruit of the Loom marked the occasion with a decidedly silly Twitter pun:

Congrats to Barbara Boxer on a term that was anything but brief. #WeLoveBoxers

Boxer has served in the Senate since 1993, and before that spent 10 years in the House of Representatives.

Fruit of the Loom's  joke quickly earned mixed reviews from Twitter politicos.
