That sounds a lot like a t-shirt from a certain site whose name can't be mentioned on dvdtalk.


Man up and wear it. Chicks will dig you.

I've always wondered how many of those "T-Shirt Hell" has sold. Even if you thought it was funny, what sane person would wear it out in public?

Since the whole "Pig Mask" thing has gone sour, let's mail this around to different Otters and have them take their picture in it.

I know who we can send it to first...

Someone once sent me a bumper sticker that read "I LOVE MORMON PUSSY."

I didn't put it on my car, because, frankly, I don't like putting bumper stickers on my car.

And also, a Mormon family lives directly across the street. It might have led to some uncomfortable moments during neighborhood block parties, or if I ever needed to borrow a cup of sugar.

although I voted, burn it, I'd probably give it away as a gag gift or something. either way, I wouldn't wear it and wouldn't want it around

Yeah...imagine you get into some unfortunate accident and die. Your poor wife/Sig other/mom has ta root around in your house and sift through your belongings only to find that shirt and tarnish your memory.

I voted to send it back. Of course I was pressured into voting. I didn't want to get persecuted and demeaned for not voting in all polls...
