It's that time again - when you are almost ALWAYS guaranteed that I will post! This week's Fun Monday Host is that snarky Aussie, Willowtree, so go visit his site for a list of participants. AND...he is a comment whore...AND he loves site hits. So visit more than once. His assignment was for us to show off some clothing art. That's tee shirts, baseball caps, hoodies, sports uniforms or any bit of clothing that we own that has interesting, funny or artistic graphics. This Fun Monday will take a LOT of time for those of you with slow browsers, so I'm keeping mine short.
I KNEW I saved this ONE t-shirt from college for some very special reason. At the time I wore this shirt, I was a shy, withdrawn, anti-social, prudish little thing. NOT!! Actually, every spring break during my college years, there was "THE SHIRT." The ONE shirt that EVERYONE who was ANYONE at South Padre Island, Texas, HAD to have. Spring Break of 1990? It was this gem, featuring mock-ups of Calvin and Hobbes on the front (two of my favorite cartoon characters):One the back? Well, LONG before The Simpsons were a big hit - Matt Groening produced a cartoon strip entitled, "Life is Hell," which I had discovered and become obsessed with. Guess who was often in the background of those cartoons? Bart, in a rudimentary form. In fact, The Simpsons had just premiered in 1989, so guess who the designers thought would be PERFECT for the back of this shirt?And that phrase? Well, "Drink until he's cute" was just a different version of slapping those beer goggles on. The "theme" shirts each year were so popular, that they guys' version was produced as well, but I don't have that one.
The Offspring has an entire collection, but I said I was going to be brief. So here's her favorite:And I couldn't find a photo of Roger in his "Old Dudes Rock Harder" shirt - which refers to MUSIC, you sickos...but this is one he's had for a looooong time. And no, he's NOT being sacrilegious here:Have a great Fun Monday - and watch this upcoming Wednesday for a big house udpate!
