singeth the scarecrow: if I only had brains

Bob Herbert's NYT column today is title "WHY AREN'T WE SHOCKED?" His leadoff example is a Abercrombie and Fitch T-Shirt for young women that says "Who needs a brain when you have these?" The actual T-Shirt, as far as I can tell online, is "Who needs brains when you have these?" I'm trying to decide if this difference is trivial or substantial. Thoughts?

(Regardless, someone here has urged me to buy one of the shirts and start wearing it to our program's weekly seminar, to further convince the economists that sociologists are a virus from outer space.)
