THE IRONIC T-SHIRT: A REPRIEVE
A couple of years ago, I had declared the ironic t-shirt officially dead.
I no longer wanted to see scrawny, pasty Brooklyn guys, faces obscured by "look at my funny facial hair" wandering about in t-shirts that proclaimed,"Geometry is for Squares" or "I'm Popular in South Dakota" or "Missouri loves Company".
"Enough!" I thought. I did not think it would be possible for one of those t-shirts to ever make me laugh again.
I was wrong.
Because when you see a fat Chinese guy sporting an "Italian Stallion" t-shirt while walking a poodle, you realize that there's always an exception to the rule.
