The absolutely sweetest shirt ever made

May 21, 2009

Here’s the No. 1 item on Amazon’s apparel list right now:

“This item has wolves on it which makes it intrinsically sweet and worth 5 stars by itself, but once I tried it on, that’s when the magic happened. After checking to ensure that the shirt would properly cover my girth, I walked from my trailer to Wal-mart with the shirt on and was immediately approached by women. The women knew from the wolves on my shirt that I, like a wolf, am a mysterious loner who knows how to ‘howl at the moon’ from time to time (if you catch my drift!). The women that approached me wanted to know if I would be their boyfriend and/or give them money for something they called mehth. I told them no, because they didn’t have enough teeth, and frankly a man with a wolf-shirt shouldn’t settle for the first thing that comes to him.”

The beauty of this shirt is in the eyes of the mocking beholders who originally berated the shirt in Amazon’s comments, but then began buying it as what looks to be another case of Internet irony. There are about 500 reviews on it so far.
