Well, it’s sort of an obvious premise and every tshirt retailer worth its salt (what the hell does that mean) will offer a roach-twinkie party shirt. It’s in the execution, where this shirt stands out big time and forces my hand to type the following words: you must buy this See You in Hell Twinkie and Cockroach T-shirt.

It’s the little things. The Twinkie is a cowboy complete with bandana, boots, gloves, and a 10-gallon hat with a T on it. Meanwhile, the roach is downing it’s ninth glass of champagne and smokin’ a real cuban cigar, and he’s wearing combat boots.

They both like super nice and innocent, like you’d have no problem hanging out with him, and I guess they have every reason to possess that easy grace…they are indestructible. Now, the assumption with this shirt is that the reader and perhaps the wearer of the shirt are going to hell, and that these two will be there too, once they live out their natural long lives. I do not know where that comes from. I’ve poured through Galatians, and the Apostle Paul’s letters do not mention this…at all. So, maybe there’s some artistic liberty being taken there. I sincerely hope not, but if so, I guess we’ll all have to live with it.

Post apocalyptic imagery is not easy to pull off. Headline Shirts does it with aplomb.
