First, an introduction. I have quietly amassed a staggering collection of t-shirts. When I see a cool one, it’s really hard to pass up. You could say I wear my interests on my sleeve. If you wanted to. You probably don’t want to.
When I spot a deal, I tend to go off. You’d be surprised how many sites sell unique shirts every day for as low as $10, or have countless artist submissions based on pop culture subjects.
I have an album on Facebook of about 20 of my cool shirts. But I want to show more, damn it! So every Tuesday (Cool Shirt Tuesday) I’ll post a new picture of one of my shirts. And I’ll even include a link (if possible) so you can order one yourself!
Cool Shirt #1
Punch Out: King Hippo
Designed by dutyfreak
Who doesn’t remember punching that cocky, flabby King Hippo in his gut in Mike Tyson’s Punch Out on NES? Truth told: I probably like Super Punch Out on SNES more, but the Hippo character and this shirt’s design was excellent. I also love how the kelly green matches the ring canvas from the actual game (though there are several shirt colors to choose from).
I bought it at TeePublic, a site I was unfamiliar with until they had a sale last month. Between me and Kate, we ordered a dozen t-shirts. I’m happy with all of mine, and they will all likely be making an appearance on Cool Shirt Tuesday.
See you next Tuesday, with another cool shirt!
