Today I was supposedly given 25 dollars free, though I’ll believe it when they show up in my bank account. AND I won a set of free speakers from Entertainment Weekly. Now, let’s ignore the facts that I already have 2 sets of speakers and that the free ones are almost certainly of a lower quality than those I already have. Due to these economic windfalls I’m going to buy a t-shirt. Any ladyfriends can speak up and I’ll take you out to dinner instead, but what are the chances of that happening? A step above zilch.
Here is Exhibit 1
A fine shirt I’d say. A fine animal displayed in an aesthetically pleasing manner. A screw you to evolutionary theory. I’m not a huge fan of the Captain Planet reference, seeing as he was a pretty pansy superhero. But really, the likelihood of anyone else getting the oblique reference is slim.
Ninja Turtles are far cooler than Captain Planet. But, it does lack a platypus. But I quite enjoy the middle-management Michelangelo. But I could use a pale blue shirt more than an off-white one. Guns or Butter!
The chances of exhibit 3 winning are pretty slim. I quite like the shirt. How adorable is the crying Pluto? But I already have a Pluto T-shirt. Do I really feel strongly enough about our rejected past-tense planet to have 2 shirts?
Let the democracy of the blogosphere ring true.
