$10 RIPT Apparel: Tape is my hero

Join the conversation

Though I was not immediately charmed by this t-shirt, I *was* immediately charmed by Dathink's artist bio, which ends with the line "I hope you will live to wear this shirt ! :)" Oh, Dathink, I know you don't mean to threaten us, but my reptilian brain stem is pulsing with a pleasant rush of "buy this t-shirt or die" endorphins.

So keeping in mind that your very life might hang in the balance, let's get back to the image on the shirt. It has a certain 1980s style je ne sais quois/je ne comprends pas. It's cartoonish and endearingly messy, but to what end? I would say more, but it's hard to see the details in the image that RIPT gives us. Long story short: did you eat acid in the 80s? Do you wish you did? Do you wish you were older so you could have? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then buy this shirt immediately.
