Mt. Rushmore We Will We Will Rock You T Shirt

This hear is a little wordplay accompanied by a nice visual of Mt. Rushmore slightly altered. George Washington says “we will.” Thomas Jefferson says “we will.” Theodore Roosevelt says “rock.” Abraham Lincoln says “you.” And, you see, they’re all carved in “rock.” Rock…rock you…get it.

You know this whole Mt. Rushmore carve faces in granite is sort of weird. Who commissioned it? Who decided those were the presidents to honor on it? Seems like kind of a random selection. You have a couple of the Ogs with Washington the first prez and Jefferson the third. Then, you have Lincoln, who was the 16th and then we move all the way up in history to Roosevelt, who was the 26th president.

It really is a whacky monument and I bet the back story is fascinating if I only had 30 minutes to do some research, I’m sure I’d be engrossed. Maybe when I retire. Maybe when Snorg Tees comes out with the three minute video to accompany the Mount Rushmore We Will We Will Rock You T Shirt.

I forgot to mention Queen. It’s their song we’re talking about here. I love the irony of this being a gay anthem and it being played at every sporting event in the United States for like the last 20 years:
