Go away

This T-Shirt was a Christmas present from my wife, who understands me. It relates to this earlier post. If the image isn’t clear, the printed text is “Hello my name is” and the handwritten text is “Go away”. I love it, but I don’t wear it to the farmers’ market on Saturday mornings.

It is from the marketing empire of David Thorne at 27b/6, who is the funniest blogger in the world (possibly). This is from his latest post:
As an Australian staying in the United States, I have been lucky enough to experience many things previously unavailable to me. Although I still flick the switches the wrong way, think the electrical outlets look upset and cringe whenever the word aluminium is pronounced, I have fallen in love with many of the things I assume most Americans take for granted – like snow and having four actual seasons.
The four seasons in Australia consist of “Fuck it’s hot”, “Can you believe how fucking hot it is?”, “I won’t be in today because it is too fucking hot” and “Yes, the dinner plate size spiders come inside to escape from the heat. That is a fucking whopper though.” I hate spiders. If I am reincarnated as a spider, I will bite myself and not seek medical assistance.
I highly recommend his book The Internet is a Playground, a collection of his emails and articles, which I bought as a Christmas present for myself. It is so funny that I haven’t told LaughyKate I have a copy for fear she will want to borrow it and then I would never see it again.

Is his first name Go and his last Away? Weird!
