Since today is “Superbowl Day” (as I call it), I feel it’s appropriate to showcase this genius T-shirt. This is what I hear in my head, and have probably blurted out loud a few times, when fans are watching in my presence:
Don’t get me wrong. I can be entertained by athletic events; I even know all the rules of tennis and most of hockey. But I believe I will fully comprehend the world’s collected works on theoretical physics before I “get” football.
Do you get football? I’m impressed.
A close second favorite in Woot’s athletic section: Always Picked Last (there should be an ALWAYS PICKED FIRST (in spelling bees) shirt).
Enjoy the Superbowl, if you’re watching!
Thank you, Brian, for sharing this!
I definitely want to get my hands on some Text Printed Tights.
Coline Design makes a variety of colorful tights with famous literary quotes (from the likes of William Shakespeare, Emily Dickinson, Lewis Caroll). OR, and I love this option, you can order custom text.
You will also find a number of different fonts and styles. I’m such a sentimental fool; I’d probably love to get a pair with memorable words from a loved one.
What quote would you emblazon on your legwear?
I was only alive for mere months of the 70’s, so I did not have the benefit (detriment?) of seeing these fashions arise and fade organically with the changing times. It’s basically a given that anything worn in one time period will be reviled in another (then worn ironically by hipsters). But…was couples dressing really a thing?

Jon Neill deserves his own post for his fabulous carvings (but alas he will have to share it with some links). Incredible designs:

This video is utterly bonkers. They…turned Halloween up to 11.
HAPPY HALLOWEEN, everyone!
Are we ready to get into the spooky spirit of the best time of year? Archie McFee’s is selling this Poe Sweater in the comically accurate One size that fits no one well .
This is a limited quantity, exclusive item! Some people prefer Halloween to any other holiday and this Edgar Allan Poe Sweater is for them. You could wear it as a Christmas sweater, but it’s designed to be worn on a brisk autumn evening as you contemplate your own mortality while sitting in a graveyard next to an abandoned church. Featuring an honest, but misguided attempt to accurately capture the likeness of Edgar Allan Poe, this sweater is sure to be a conversation piece with you and your friends as you play with a Ouija board and read poetry from your tear-stained journal. This one-size-fits-most sweater is sausage-casing-tight on a 2XL person and awkwardly loose on a medium frame. (I guess that means for me, it’s a dress)
