T-Shirt Time

Do you know the internet is a great place to buy T-shirts? So do I! I’ve spent a good chunk of my free time looking at shirts lately. Normally, I’m not much for novelty shirts. I’m more of a plain shirt or plaid guy. I like to blend in with walls or couches from the ’70’s. Yet, for some reason, my brain wanted my eyes to see what the world offered. The world has some great T-shirts, everybody.

In the spirit of back to school, I present you with awesome T-shirts. I highly encourage you to speak up for your favorite shirts that cannot speak for themselves, and share it with us. I’m sure I’ve missed plenty of doozies.

I want. Gimme.

I’m ashamed I knew nothing about Glennz Tees before a couple days ago. I’ve seen some of his shirts on Threadless, but I had no idea he had his own site. This shirt is a 10, on a scale of 9 to 10. (This week’s Hoarder’s anyone? Anyone catch that?) I want it wrapped around my lazily built torso now! It’s also printed on American Apparel tee’s. I think those are comfy.

Thank goodness everyone is familiar with group theory.

Most of the shirts at Cafe Press are painfully dull, to be honest. Shirts you’d find at lame coffee shops that shouldn’t sell clothing. Snarky comments with an agenda to take on the man or take advantage of a piece of pop culture. These are the kinds of shirts I think will replace shirts with kittens and birdhouses on them. The ones moms buy at craft stores and Amish towns. However, there are always diamonds in the rough. Granted I have an affinity for the universal language, so this is a little niche, but these math shirts are dope, yo! This may not be funny, but I love the diagram on this shirt. All my group theory fans, raise the roof!

Induction? More like Fun-duction.

There is also a great induction theory shirt for the ladies! Buy this to laugh by yourself since most people won’t get it. Search through Cafe Press. There are more great ones sprinkled around in the giga-zillion to choose from.

"Try a nut roll with your mocha, Fox!" exclaims Peppy.

Lately, a friend of mine has gotten me hooked on saying, “Do a barrel roll!” in my best Peppy voice. Now I must have this shirt from Shark Robot.

I'll also take this on the back of a leather jacket, please.

Also from Shark Robot, this Sonic shirt. It’s Sonic head, but if you look real close, it’s built of tiny Sonic’s running about. It’s like a metaphor for life. You know? Like atoms or DNA and stuff.

My ABSOLUTE FAVORITE of the shirts I stumbled upon can be found at Error Wear. Unfortunately, their site wouldn’t allow me to get good, clear pictures of their shirts. They make shirts out of the error screens from PC, Mac, etc. My personal must-haves are the Windows 95/98 blue screen of death and the Pac Man kill screen. If someone from Error Wear sees this, YOU MUST MAKE THE DONKEY KONG KILL SCREEN! I’ve watched The King of Kong too many times to not have it.

Did I miss a great shirt or an entire site all together? Share it!

    Mentalfloss.com’ s store has some great stuff. T-shirts, watches, catapult spoons. That last one is my personal favorite! Nothing like chucking peas straight across a conference table.

    Since you asked, I just actually launched a new shirt site. We try to crowd source ideas; we then print them ourselves. Here’s my current fav.:
