I'm finding blogging is leading me to a whole new world of T-shirt whoredom. I'm not necessarily talking about 6 Dollar Shirts or the unfortunate but appropriately named T-Shirt Hell, but I refer to a recently discovered genre of T-shirts.
The Blog-Inspired Inside Joke T-Shirt.
I kid you not. This year for Christmas, I may populate my entire Christmas list with Awesome T-Shirts I've See Around The Web That No One Will Get But Me And Other Blog Readers.
First, from Josh at The Comics Curmudgeon (along with the help of the other 'mudges, and the writers of Apartment 3G) is this gem here - The 'Too Fancy For Hoboken and Too Hot For Church' design:
Actually, I may bypass the T-shirt and arrange to have "Too Fancy for Hoboken and Too Hot for Church" engraved on my Tombstone. How kickass would that be?
This next one is the handiwork of The Bloggess:
I'm not sure if I like the shirt so much as I just love the story behind it.
But.. I'll admit, I have an ulterior motive behind writing this post about Awesome T-Shirts On The Web.
I do, it's true. I am not proud.
Here it is.
And i want that one. In purple. Because it's true, purple should be a flavour. It's my second favorite color behind red. If it was available in red, I'd get in in red, honestly. But I like purple a lot as well. When I'm old, I'm going to be one of those Red Hat Society ladies, and just wear a shit-ton of red and purple. ALL THE FRIGGIN TIME. and drink tea laced with bourbon with my red-and-purple-wearing friends, and man oh MAN is it going to be a kick-ass time.
So yes, go check out the contest. In the meantime, until I can be a red-hat lady, I will be happy to wear my Aunt Becky T under my work clothes at my customer service job and when I am on the phone dealing with people who by rights shouldn't be capable of driving or owning property, I can look down my own top and think "Yes. 'Shut Your Whore Mouth, indeed."
And I will smile.
