Make It Shirt So Good

Hello, dear Readers, I want to introduce you to someone special. But first, a story...

In college I worked for a t-shirt screening shop, so every now and then we would make funny t-shirts for ourselves before we went home.

Wait, crap, that story sucked. Ummm...and then I found $5! There we go.

Where was I?

Oh, right - the greatest t-shirt ever invented.


I know what you are asking - did this sexy t-shirt (and facial expression) ever lure a young lady into the love den?

No.

I blame the recession.

The closest it ever came to tasting success (wow, worded that wrong) was the time a friend of mine wore the shirt and some girl told him she had $10. Then he pointed to me and said, "There he is."

Her response?

"Oh. Nevermind."

Joke is on her - I didn't have change for a $20 anyways.

Wait.

Nevermind.

Don't really want to know.

Yes! Making t-shirts is the best.

When I was in high school, the girl I was dating worked at a store like yours, and I got her to make a t-shirt with my face on it. I wore it all the time and it was great.

And my word verification is too funny not to share!

I've got a $20 and a hotel room. See you there.

Amanda West said...

Dude, maybe you shoulda lowered the price a tad.

Haha. Funny post.

That shirt is genius. I want one. But not with my own name on it...boys are weird enough as is.

I think I've seen that photo before. I've always dug that shirt. And I dig it even more that you had the cajones to wear it. I would have worn a shirt like that, but I would have probably just got my ass kicked.

Oh the screen printing days. I think everyone had a phase of creating their own t-shirt shenanigans

LifeAsAlexis said...

Hahaha. You're officially my hero. If I were a good 5 years older, I totally would have offered 20 dollars for the t-shirt being so cool. ;]

kelli said...

I remember that shirt quite well. I bet if Jakes could do it with Jeff Nomina for $10, it totally would.

Ed Adams said...

That shirt was cool then, but in 50 years, you'll be a cheap piece of ass.

Like when old people talk about buying a loaf of bread for a nickel or gas for a quarter a gallon, only it'll be old ladies telling their friends they could have gotten some cockmeat for $10.
