Martini Meerkat T Shirt

Meerkats are awesome. That straight posture. The pride. The sense of belonging. Slip in a martini and you have a design that jumps off the tee and straight into the subconscious of all that pass your way. And you know what these folks have planted within them as they see that wonderful animal with the sunglasses? It’s a deep thought and roughly translated it goes like this…the person wearing that shirt is the most amazing person on the planet, I want to have a meaningful interaction with them that is tasteful and helps them in some way.

Beer Tank T Shirt

Get This Shirt From Crawl Apparel

Hey it looks like you are the beer with this tank on. It’s even got suds. Trouble is it’s a lighter beer and the shirt doesn’t spell out that it’s beer, so people may look at it and think you’re wallowing in a large glass of urine. And, maybe they start poking you to try to take the piss out of you. Or maybe they recognize that it’s beer and they think that’s cool, and that triggers an uncontrollable urge to lick your tricep. Might happen.

Who is this we? Do I need to know this before I wear the shirt. Who am I aligning with. Occupy? Ants are Humans Too (AAHT)? Freaky Aliens with great powers that can change the Earth into a gelatinous mass with a snap of a grotesquely long finger and thumb? I need more specifics here. Or maybe ambiguity inspires. This shirt announces that the collective we is trying to make a difference, and the wearer of the shirt is onboard. So, innocent passersby must at least engage with the thought of world changing as they read the tee.

Get This Shirt From Artus Clothing

Not sure what’s going on with the shirt, but anytime you can featuring a guy with suspenders on the same shirt with a special needs kid on a modern day big wheel, and illegible type, you gotta do it. Get some broads in there and some paint splatter and you have a design that wears well in the club, at the party, at school, and at your bar mitzvah.

Awake and Unafraid T Shirt

Get This Shirt From Sleep Terror Clothing

That’s a lot of eyeballs. And, normally that creature, who we will call, eyebally, is the one giving people nightmares, but in this instance I think we have learned that eyebally is prone to an overactive imagination. Fortunately, for him he’s managing his fears and tonight he’s unafraid, which is a sweet story even if he’s the ugliest creature on this or any other planet.

Get this Tee From Bedo Shirts

Hey look. Instead of bloods or crips or westside or whatever the hell the gangs throwin’ signs out there today are called, the hands on this design are throwin’ Bedo, which is a really cool way for an indie shop to do a logo shirt. Way better than just having your logo on there and trying to sell that. I’m not saying that terrible. Some people are big fans of the brand and wear that proudly.

Get This Shirt From Alternate Decision

I dig this design. Looks cool, and just has some intriguing detail. The pair of shoes hanging from the telephone wire. Telephone poles as the structural part of the earphones. Plus, you have a transformer and and stop light. The skulls certainly do have their ears to the streets. They know what time it is. Unfortunately, it doesn’t mean shit because they’re dead. It’s just like ghosts dicking around on Earth. They blow curtains around or move a piece of paper, but that’s all they can really get done, because they’re dead.

Ambiguity T Shirt

Get This Shirt From Tshirt Pusher

What happens in vagueness, stays in vagueness. I like this one a lot. It’s funny wordplay, and the distressed design totally looks old school Vegas. I should probably get this tee because this is basically my entire life. Wait, who am I?

So the deer has a lightning bolt blasting through it, but the shirt is called stuck in the headlights. So, this is one bad evening for this animal. I mean, yes, deer do get stuck in the headlights, like they get overwhelmed with the speed and size of the car, and the brightness of the lights. He freezes understandable. But, this unfortunate sucker also gets struck by lightning at that very moment. Had it just been an empty road, he would have skipped across and met his hot doe date on the other side of the forest. Instead he gets mesmerized by the car lights, and struck dead by lightning. Rough night.
