Literature T Shirts

Literature T Shirts: Strangely there are enough shirts that callout scenes from famous books to create a legit section on this site. Who knew this generation read? Or maybe this is the extent of it. They read t-shirts.

Sweet lord, nice little mashup with the Doctors. Doctor Who and Doctor Seuss with Horton the elephant standing by the ubiquitous telephone booth from which all the magic of the long standing syfy series flows.

Edgar Allan Poe was so dark and miserable and everybody just thought he was born that way. Or in the modern day therapy culture, they probably spoke of imbalances in the brain, and the need for some psychotropic meds. However, it has recently come to light that the only thing he really needed was an outlet for his deep desire to move his body to the rhythm.

The entire text on this tee is Vote for Zaphod Beeblebrox For President of the Galaxy He’s the Guy You Want to Vote for. Zaphod Beeblebrox is a character in the book/movie Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. Sam Rockwell played him to the hilt in the movie and that, very well, might be the main reason you go ahead and buy this shirt from Busted Tees in the next 7 to 8 minutes.

First let’s examine the words on the shirt: Poe Boy’s Sandwich Shop Be Hungry Nevermore! Baltimore, Maryland. Now, let’s examine the meaning of those words. First there’s a Po Boy’s restaurant, but this is a funny shirt, so you gotta put a twist in it, and make it Poe, like the author. This way you also avoid licensing issues which are a major headache. Okay, now you got the great dark wizard of writing in there, so you have to tie it together with the tag Be Hungry Nevermore…which of course references the food premise and one of Edgar Allan Poe’s more famous works, The Raven.

In case you need a refresher on Total Recall, starring the ever impressive, Arnold Schwarzenegger, he’s gotta do some crazy sci-fi stuff, including going to Mars. And, on Mars, there are three-breasted women. I have included a Youtube video that shows you what I’m talking about (tastefully, of course…the real naughty bits are covered).

Nice little twist on the Frankenstein legend. First, it’s a common mistake to think that the monster’s name was Frankenstein, when really it was the doctor’s name. Second, why not break up Frankenstein into a team of two. Frank was better with the science: chemistry, biology…figuring out the best recipe for embalming. Stein was the marketer of the duo, which is why you’re now seeing this Dr’s Frank N Steins Embalming Elixir T-Shirt.

More human than human. Love that tagline. Blade Runner…good movie? Not so good? Harrison Ford…good actor? Not so good? I actually liked Blade Runner and Ford’s work in the film, which is why I highly recommend the Tyrell Genetic Replicants T Shirt.

Got to get your thoughts straight on the 2012 election sooner than later. Why not soak in the message of this Cthulhu Dagon 2012 T Shirt. It’s deep. I mean think about “Why Vote for a Lesser Evil?” for a minute or 20. It’s pure unadulterated truth. The kind of stuff that can cut a little bit. It can hurt as it re-structures the nueral pathways in your brain.

Someone over at the Tshirt Bordello is into some H.P. Lovecraft or maybe just the Cthulhu culture that has risen online and in the gaming community out of the mythos Lovecraft created.

Mark Twain was an extremely quotable guy. Funny. Smart. He could really turn a phrase, which is why I hear a quote from him on like a daily basis. What’s strange is that one of his most popular quotes is not even attributed to him. Yes, I’m talking about this Mark Twain That’s What She Said T Shirt. That’s what he said back in the day, but The Office hijacked it and now everybody thinks Steve Carell made it up. On the contrary, it was Twain.

“The Snozzberries taste like Snozzberries. Excellent scene from an excellent movie. Gene Wilder is spectacular. And, never forget “we are the music makers and we are the dreamers of dreams,” so there can damn well be snozzberries on my lickable wallpaper if I want there to be.
