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.

Pick up on this…Salt-N-Pepper nailed it with that Push It song.

This dance for everybody. Only the sexy people. So, if you’re not sexy, the next best thing to do is to get the lawn mower out and push it. Make sure you have the black mid-calf black socks and a real chunky boot or an off-brand white sneaker. Not sure if you have enough balls to wear boxers and a wife beater white tee. Maybe just cut off jean shorts and the wife beater and the sunglasses that flip down over your regular glasses frames.

We have a pun here, which I like to classify as wordplay in my system just to keep the categories clean and succinct. I like the simplicity of the message. I like the artwork on this shirt. I like the fine high cheek bones of the model wearing the tee. Basically, I like everything about it and I’m trying to impress upon you that you should love it just as much, or perhaps, more.

Love sticking a video game extra life green mushroom, into a real live combat situation. That soldier is reaching out like it’s his last chance to continue living in the hell that is war. It’s nice to switch it up, because most Mario Bros. Shirts are just kind of cute. This Green Mushroom 1 Up T Shirt brings a bit of gritty realism to the table. Planes dropping bombs in the background. A fighting man in fatigues. Strain on a more real looking face.

There Will Be Blood was a great movie, and this line comes at one of the most gripping and twisted parts. You can’t keep your eye off of Daniel Day-Lewis as he pours his soul into the role of the whacked, evil and philosophical oil man Daniel Plainview.

Just like my gramma used to do. Get up early…old people can’t help it because they go to bed at like 5:30 PM because they have nothing to do, so they get up at about 2 AM and start pottering around the house. Gramma would roll out the dough and shape it into perfectly round cinnamon rolls. Ah, the days we used to stay at her house were grand. I’d get up at 10 AM and there would be the perfect breakfast.

Polite as Fuck T Shirt

by on January 21, 2011

The thing that is amazing about this shirt is the size of the scripty font. It’s huge. Basically, you have the biggest “fuck” possible on your shirt. So, don’t wear this around the kids, please. They’re not ready to process this sort of edgy business. Now, if you’re 32-years-old or older then please enjoy the obscene contradiction and make your 32 and over friends laugh. Under 32, then I certainly hope you are not even reading this, and if you are, I’m sorry. You should go to confession. And, tell you mom, and probably go shovel the snowy sidewalks of your own volition, just to sort of make up for your transgression.

Car Ramrod T Shirt

You love Super Troopers. And, I love the concept of Broken Lizard’s Super Troopers. I actually haven’t seen Super Troopers, but the notion of a rogue police crew pulling all kinds of shenanigans just warms my heart in a way that Karate Kid III could not.

You know that fake band on the fake show Full House? Me neither, but that’s what this shirt references, and if you know what’s good for you, you will purchase the Jesse and the Rippers T shirt, because it’s kind of obscure in a pop culture kind of way. Is that possible? Is it desirable? Like you feel a bit smug if people don’t know what it is and they ask you and then you tell them with an air of superiority and then there’s a bit of a bond because they enjoyed the show but forgot about that band. Now, you’re friends, except that you’ve established yourself as the alpha dog of the relationship. Nice.

Annamarie Tendler Dossier

After careful consideration,  I have determined that Busted Tees model Annamarie Tendler is my favorite t-shirt model. And that’s huge. Do you hear that? She’s the best and there is none better. I can’t quite put my finger on exactly why. She looks sweet and edgy all at the same time.

Such a cute sentiment…give this shirt to your girl. Give the tee to your boy. Or, go ahead and cruise the bars, clubs, and bowling alleys of the seedier part of your city and bump into someone you might want to get with a little later on and just point to the shirt. They’re going to be some hard ass, but this cute little train and your little move is going to soften their hearts so you can get them in bed after a particularly hard night of drinking.

Of course The Big Lebowski is one of the greatest movies of all time and space. And you should watch it at least twice a year. And, you should celebrate its brilliance by owning schwag that references the film. This would include fake beards, The Dude rugs, wax statue of Julianne Moore, and, of course, this Little Lebowski Urban Achievers T Shirt. And you know why: “and proud we are of all of them.”

The classic drinking song. 99 bottles of beer on the wall. 99 bottles of beer. Take one down, pass it around, 98 bottles of beer on wall. Of course, this probably needs to be amended to something like 99 bottles of beer on my t shirt, 99 bottles of beer. Cut one out and leave no doubt. 98 bottles of beer on my t shirt. Trouble is even you only make it through half of the song or even a quarter of the song you have a pretty mangled 99 Bottles of Beer T Shirt.
