Busted Tees: NYC pumping out very fine pop culture shirts

Busted Tees is a fine funny t-shirt shop with loads of clever tees featuring pop culture and random stuff. Many BustedTees.com shirts have made Shirt of the Day.

This tee represents an Arrested Development episode. There’s a dance for mothers and sons to promote bonding and they call in Motherboy, and the 30th annual dance is coming up, and, of course, they use the Roman numerals, XXX, to make it that much more icky. Anyways, the only reason I know this is because Wikipedia stopped blacking out — must have shoddy servers — and I was able to glean the information I needed.

What you have here is a mashup with Moby Dick and Twitter’s fail whale that pops up whenever they’re over capacity. Pretty cool, except you may have to do some explaining when you wear the Moby Fail T Shirt. If anyone has done even a small amount of tweeting they’ve probably scene the whale being flown by birds, but it’s not immediate apparent that there’s a Herman Melville influence here.

Of course, this Ray’s Occult Books T Shirt is in reference to Ghostbusters and Ray, is of course, Dr. Raymond Stantz, the character played by Dan Akroyd, who owns an occult book store. This movie hit in 1984 and it’s still huge. The kids love this stuff. It is a classic I have to say. The script is snappy, the music is peppy, the humor gets you, and, of course, there’s all of the unforgettable moments: Stay Puft Marshmallow, Who Ya Gonna Call, and, uh…some other awesome scenes.

So you have this video game Portal that I know less than nothing about. There’s a vortex of unknowledge in my brain about Portal. It seems to be popping up everywhere, yet I cannot get myself to figure out what it’s all about. Am I a bad person? Anyways…Think Different is the classic Apple slogan. If you never saw the commercial I’ve done you the huge favor of embedding it below.

This Acoustic Keytar T Shirt is pretty damn wicked. I love the concept of this dude holding a miniature grand piano. And I love his vest, his hair, and his intensity. Moustache…check. Chest hair…check. Stylish footwear…check. This is a rocker extraordinaire, and he has chosen to play the most hardcore instrument on the planet. That thing has to way like 85 pounds. Think of the pressure on his back and neck, yet he is still rocking the house, and giving the people what they paid to see. A show. An event. The memory of a lifetime.

Not sure what Busted Tees is trying to get at here. You have the misspelling of the name of the greatest band in music history, which is weird because whenever I want to hear The Beatles, I type their name into Rhapsody, hoping beyond hope that they worked with Paul and got the right to stream the music. But, alas, bitter disappointment. Been then I think maybe I spelled it wrong, because I do that with The Beetles. But, alas, more disappointment because Rhapsody hasn’t landed the Fab Four. Yeah, iTunes has the whole catalog, but not Rhapsody. Anyways, there’s always Youtube. I suppose I could also get a job and then just pay for some Beatles downloads or even a CD, but I spend 16 hours a day on this blog out of the goodness of my heart, so that, you, my precious reader, will have some inspiring prose to consume on a daily basis.

Goddamn this is a funny one right here. Made me laugh like a fool. Game of Thrones is such heavy programming. Lots of honor, swords, beards, and long stares.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m a sucker for that kind of gritty, drama business. The beauty of this Summer is Coming T Shirt is multi-faceted.

Um, if I think this band sux, does that mean I should like this shirt, because it sort of makes fun of their creative band naming process, and perhaps hints that a band that goes for Eve 6 as their name probably lacks that certain something in other bandly ways as well? That’s the way I’m going to take this Possible Band Names Eve 6 T Shirt.

Editor’s note: Thanks to our dear readership, we have discovered that is not an Angry Bird at all, rather a Goomba from Super Mario. Please accept my sincerest apology if you have been in any way hurt or misled by the incorrect analysis of this t-shirt.

Cupcakes pretty much make the best sweet treat, aside from chocolate with almonds and sea salt, and they also make the best design on a cute and funny t shirt. Am I right? this Treat Yo Self T Shirt is very appealing with it’s combination of suburban dessert and it’s urban language. It’s basically scrumptious and irresistible. But, don’t take my word for it.

You don’t see a fully bearded super hero very often now do you? It’s quite refreshing, which is why you need to own the Super Ray T Shirt. You will refresh 5 out of 6 people that you meet, and that’s a good percentage and worth so much more you’re going to pay to Busted Tees for them to deliver your size to your door.

Obviously, this Mom’s Friendly Robot Company T Shirt is inspired by the animated series, Futurama. I say that with much authority because I’ve watched every episode…twice.

That’s not true, but I’m certain that Mom owns MomCorp and she’s a tough old bird, and she runs a company that builds robots and sometimes they blow up unsafely.
