Today's Shirt

Description: This is an odd one. The back says "Cyber bullets cause no pain." The logo features a peace sign superimposed on a crosshair. Or maybe a peace sign in a cross hair.

Origin: Jeff gave this shirt. He got it at the Million Man LAN nerd convention he goes to every summer. He said that, the site it advertises, is a game site, which, according to its homepage, allows gamers to play the latest hits, such as Links LS '99 and High Heat Baseball 2000.

Decision: This shirt utterly puzzles me. I can't quite wrap my brain around the slogan and logo. Is it the premier game server for Quaker First Person Shooter gamers? Or is it suggesting that the cyber bullets are just training for real bullets, and that shooting peace squarely in its three-pronged sign the next objective? I don't know, but I do know that I'm a little antsy about walking around with a crosshair on my back, let alone walking around with a crosshair on my back while sending out mixed messages. This one is probably on its way out.

Also, I tossed a simple ash shirt that had an American flag surrounded by "USA Washington, DC" in the corner. It was a gift from Mom in the summer of 2001, when she, Abby, and Aaron went to Washington for vacation while I stayed home and worked at a gas station and ate Ramen noodles. Not really a cherished memory.

That shirt is definitely confusing.

I have to say, I don't love it.
