dracula t shirt Dracula T Shirt

Get This Shirt From Miles To Go

Miles To Go does shirts based on literature. So, damn cool. This one is a sinister dracula from Bram Stoker’s classic. That design is going to look good on your chest no doubt. And, if you’re a fan of the book or the character, then you’ll probably be as close to heaven as you possibly can be without being dead.

partying is such sweet sorrow t shirt Partying is Such Sweet Sorrow T Shirt

Get This T-Shirt from Topatoco

The power of one tiny letter. This is actually from Romeo & Juliet. Juliet says “parting is such sweet sorrow.” Not quite the same meaning as on this fine shirt. However, I think both sentiments are equally valid. Think of that hangover in the morning. You sort of remember all the good times you had, but then you are sorrowful that you feel like such shit.

who wants a shot earnest hemingway t shirt Earnest Hemingway Who Wants a Shot T Shirt

Get This Shirt

I’m pretty sure Earnest Hemingway probably asked a table full of interesting characters this exact question. He was a drinker and a thinker, and liked to make merry with the people around him. I totally just made that up. Actually, I saw Midnight in Paris and Hemingway seemed like that kind of dude, so that pretty much proves it.

end sweetshop labor t shirt Oompa Loompas End Sweetshop Labor T Shirt from Busted Tees

Get This Shirt

Ha Ha. The movie portrays the Oompa Loompas as pretty happy, but I guess when the glare of the camera lights is turned away, it’s a different story. They never get to go outside, so they have to do that fake tan shit to get any color in their skin. And Willy Wonka is a bit creepy and a little too free with the hands if you know what I mean.

sherlock holmies t shirt Portlandia Sherlock Holmies T Shirt from Busted Teesbuy now button yellow Portlandia Sherlock Holmies T Shirt from Busted TeesIs this a typo? Or are we talking about a group of youngsters that like to solve little made up mysteries. And, they call themselves holmies because like most of the youth of today, they have a little hip hop influence going. Or is it really the name of a hide-and-go-seek team in Portland? That just made me think it was from a TV show, so pardon me while I do three or four minutes of solid searching.

Hunter S. Giraffe T Shirt

by on February 1, 2012

hunter s giraffe t shirt Hunter S. Giraffe T Shirtbuy now button yellow Hunter S. Giraffe T ShirtDamn. That giraffe totally looks like Hunter S. Thompson. What with the floppy bucket hat, glasses, and cigarette holder. It’s actually kind of spooky, and makes me think the design staff over at Headline Shirts is performing some sort of black magic to subsume the essence of the man, and birth him anew in ink on thread. Whatever the means, the ends–this Hunter S. Giraffe T Shirt–justify them thoroughly.

moby dick fail whale t shirt Twitter Moby Dick Fail T Shirt from Busted Teesbuy now button yellow Twitter Moby Dick Fail T Shirt from Busted TeesWhat 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.
