dont wait for your tombstone . . .

October 8, 2007

. . . say it on your t-Shirt

you see it everywhere you go

people trying to express themselves

some trying to cram a key life message or bad joke into 7 characters on a license plate

others causing a traffic hazard by plastering their car with waaaay too much reading material

while the rest of us attempt to share a bit of ourselves with t-shirt slogans.

so, skipping the obvious band and beer t-shirts, and ignoring altogether you folk who are willing to pay 3x what a shirt is worth just to advertise for the company that sold it to you – yeah, i’m talking to you, abercrombe people – lets romp through the world of cotton epithets and see what we may see.

believe it or not

your choice in full frontal advertisement can tell a lot about your individual nature.

sometimes a little too much.

…..sometimes waaaaay too much

sometimes folk will wear something they just have no business wearing

no matter how true it is

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

some people wear things that make you wonder if they are religious bigots

or just have a good grasp of irony

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

and still others leave no doubt of their ironic mastery

like this girl

………..or this guy

……….Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

(think he’s got a gun pressed into her back?)

…..some billboards are obviously the result of parental interference

kids are definitely getting lied to

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

others, i suspect, are facing some cold hard truths

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

relationship tees are always fun

by her sh!teating grin i can tell she doesn’t believe a word of it

by his sh!teating grin i can tell every single word is true

…………..Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

this guy, on the other hand, didn’t even try to be sneaky

i bet she thought it was a joke right up to the moment her face bounced off the asphalt

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

some folks are all into being in-your-face accept-me-as-i-am-or-else

or is she just telling us she likes to do it in the john? (or would that be jane?)

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

but then there is a lot of sex related chestwear out there

………………..some are just geek disguised as skank

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

but they’re really just geek

others are skank disguised as skank

…..Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

sadly these are probably no more than they appear

some, of course, just tell it how it is

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

others tell it how you wish it was

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

others are just straight up lying.

…….Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

you can touch em if you want to, but the outcome is going to be a bitch slap followed by a beatdown from her 7′ tall boyfriend out on the court followed by a restraining order and possibly some time in county.

but hey, your life, take a chance, cat!

even worse than the meatworld liars are the tease tees that just don’t exist apart from teh interwebs

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

i’m not saying you’ll NEVER see that shirt in meatworld

i’m just saying it’ll be her brother wearing it

::

of course, some tees are just a desperate cry for help

…..Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

while others just know their place in life

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

and still others brandish the truth of the universe

(waves @ whoreChurch)

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

of course there are always those who would rather go behind your back

some because regulations require it

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

some because your dumb ass lets them

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

and finally :: this last one is for my wife

for she is indeed the one

…..who has always empowered me . . .

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

. . . to say anything

    Your “photo tour” prose/poetry is some of the best shit on the internet.

    It’d be worth an entire blog of its own.

    Love it.

    LoL – i could never restrain myself to that medium. it will have to settle for time-share with all the rest of my cranial vomit.

    for one thing, touching up that many photos took me the better part of the day.

    if it were to blow up like I Can Haz Cheesburger blew up, then maybe I’d devote the time to it. i know specialization pays off, but i tend to agree with heinlein (quoted below) – i’m just too ADD for it.

    A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.

    once i learn to program a computer i’ll only have *die gallantly* to check off

    The commenter who said this:
    “Your “photo tour” prose/poetry is some of the best shit on the internet.

    is right on. You definitely have something here. Brilliance, absolutely.

    ack!

    rick, you barstid, you’ve set the womenfolk on me!

  11. October 8, 2007 22:53

    I have set them on you . . . which allows me to get away without hassles.

    I like your quote . . . in fact it’s been my personal quote on my Amazon.com Profile page for more than a year.

  12. October 8, 2007 23:16

    Very entertaining! Love the logo tease, I mean tees!

    Thanks for checking my site out too! 🙂

    i’ve always liked heinlein for good common sense gritty human [and humane] wisdom. i don’t agree with the man wholesale, but what i do agree with makes up a huge chunk of the core of who i am.

    him and stephen donaldson [no wonder i’m such a cynical barstid]. the quote i always carry from him is *the heart cherishes secrets not worth keeping* to remind myself of a bit of wisdom i picked up in prison – your secrets are just bullets in the other guy’s gun

    @ JackiLou – yeah, i think i saw you over @ joeyMoggies’ blog.

    i’m always on the lookout for good blogs to add to my roll. and i find that people who read the same bloggers i read often fit the bill.

    anyway, glad you stopped by. i look forward to reading more of you.
