This Week's Shirt (8.26.10)

This week at the Forlorn Funnies Shirt Shop: a day late again, but I was tied up trying to figure these two out, despite their previous appearance on this blog. Now I understand them. I'm not allowed to tell, but I understand them. All I can say is: watch the eyelashes.

NASA's Webcam is Better Than Yours

I highly recommend watching this video (starting at 1:50) of one of the solid fuel boosters on the STS-124 Space Shuttle Discovery falling back to earth. The fact that some people want to go almost this high without a plane around them is almost as mindblowing as the video.

This Week's Shirt (8.19.10)

This week at the Forlorn Funnies Shirt Shop: once again I'm a day late in posting this, but who's counting? You? Or that guy? Who does that guy think he is anyway? Does he think he's better than me? Maybe he is better than me... Where did he get that belt? That's a nice belt.

(For the keen eyed: this design features the decapitated noggin of none other than nihilist Schubert from the Oh Well duo. Re-drawn here in an all new bland expression.)

It's That Time

It's Wednesday. Time for nuns in bumper cars.

This Week's Shirt (8.12.10)

This week at the Forlorn Funnies Shirt Shop: some people want to praise your contemplative demeanor, some people want to criticize your penchant for shenanigans, perhaps even your ties to the mafia. Save them all the trouble of yelling their assessment at you by wearing this shirt, complete with the pontificating cloud dweller from The Three Paradoxes.

One Night Is Never Enough Museum

Were my schedule the exact opposite of what it is this fall, I would love to apply for a month-long trip into the bowels of The Museum of Science and Industry here in Chicago. My friend James Kennedy has thrown himself into contention and I hope, for the sake of art, science, and well-worded madness, that he gets it.

This Week's Shirt (8.5.10)

This week at the Forlorn Funnies Shirt Shop: with the recent revelation that triceratops may not have existed, it's high time for a wrestling match between him and some mustachioed muscle from a bygone era, all the while celebrating chest and neck fashion. Finally, everything makes sense.

Pair this with the Yachts! shirt and have your mother thoroughly confused.

With Apologies and Ferns

Due to my own wedding planning madness and my best friend getting hitched, there was no new shirt design last week. So as compensation and apology, I offer this, a warm conversation between two friends, between two ferns.

Also: this week's design will involve ascots. I shall say no more.
