Mandatory style statement

I just want you all to know that when I arrived at my mother’s house last night, she was wearing this t-shirt. Why aren’t you? She clearly recognizes the objective beauty of the item, so I don’t know what your problem is.

    The Tshirt’s fucking cool :) but it’s not really “me”… I so want one of their “People’s Republic of Pharyngula” buttons, though.

  2. says

    I still don’t see why I have to wear mine at work. I telecommute, PZ. I’ve explained this to you. Uniforms don’t make sense in a telecommuting context. Also 50-50 makes me break out.

    So cute! But why is the middle-aged guy with a beard blocking my view of the octopus?

    A terry cloth dressing gown and swim fins.

    What a coincidence!
    What colour fins?

  5. says

    I would like a shirt that involves a giant PZ crushing a church with his foot while shooting lazer beams out of his eyes at the theists, who are naturally running away. This shirt is a good stopgap though.

    Hahaha! We should all club together and by his squidlyness that. As an evil overlord, he needs a throne.

    I do! All the time, at quizbowl tournaments.

    I once met two pharyngulite lurkers this way.

    Damn, just stopped by to post that link to the Octopus Chair, and see I was scooped. I think we should buy it for Janet Voight, just to keep PZ’s ego in check. ;-)

    Years ago I bought a PZ-T which consisted of a Christian fish being pursued by a squid. It’s not in the Pharyngula store, but it was featured in one of the posts. I’ve no idea if it’s still for sale.

    For Christmas, though, I got something very wicked: the ‘Cathulu’ shirt.

    A way to both honor Pharyngula … and keep PZ’s ego in check. Awesome.

    I love the review that followed:

    Super cute, comfortable, vibrant print and a bit confusing, this shit ticks all the right boxes ^_^

  11. Jerry says

    i AM j ust now rexovering my visionn after loking at your shirt. Please warn people next time, PZ. .

  12. okstop says

    See, if you ask me, that tee-shirt is just going to encourage the REALLY deranged PZ fans to write some truly terrifying fanfiction.

    Then again, “take your fame however you can get it” is the American way…

    Great T-shirt, one problem though, “we’ve printed “” on the right sleeve “. That should probably be updated.

  14. natashatasha says

    My problem is that $40 is a bit steep for a T-shirt =P
    That said, it is rather cute.
