T-Shirts Are Fun

These days, the only clothes I buy are work clothes that would be appropriate to wear at some future mystery job I may have one day after I graduate and pass the bar. I guess I figure that the more I invest in work clothes, the more I'll be motivated to look for a real lawyer job and the less panic-shopping I'll have to do once I start said job. However, my heart of imature hearts still years for funny shirts with strange slogans that I can wear out grocery shopping and bar hopping with my girls. So, I've decided that I'm going to get one of these shirts and give you lovely people a chance to buy me one for my upcoming official entry into the second quarter of my life.

Those of you who know of my love for nerds - or at least intelligent men - and my hatred for generic pickup lines from guys that think they're all slick get why this is perfect for me. I also like that T-Shirt Hell offers it in a "boybeater" tank. A great going-out shirt.

Naturally, this is Aaron's favorite of the bunch. Rather than referring to some imaginary penis I don't have, it's a throwback reference to those pesky NES cartridges that you had to blow on to get them to work. I still don't know why you have to blow into those things, but I know this shirt is damned funny.

Another great shirt for going out to bars. I like that it's sarcastic, but also reflects a little bit of how much I love to cook for friends. Once again, also available in a "boybeater" tank - sassy!

This shirt is a nod to one of my biggest pet peeves in the world: people who don't know when to use "you're" from when to use "your". I especially like it when people type it into blog comments in an attempt to tell me that I'm stupid or into online poker chats to tell me that I'm not a good player (although I just took all their money). No, you're retarded!!

I love this obvio Myspace reference... and the fact that the shirt is blue. Who is Tom? Why does he send me more messages than my real friends? Can I delete him from my list of friends? I bet he's either a dork or a jerk I wouldn't be friends with in real life and I'd like for people to know that.

I also love silly T-shirts, and never get to wear them because I'm a working stiff. My tastes tend to lean toward the inappropriate wares over at T-Shirt Hell, though this shitr is overflowing with awesomeness.

I got myself the kitchen shirt as a self-birthday present... being a year older seems like a good excuse to buy a non-responsible shirt.
