The Importance of Reading The Fine Print
Ever watch Squidbillies? Ever? It is the best cartoon ever. The most non politically correct (oh yeah, beyond the Family Guy AND South Park combined). The cartoons are so artfully exquisite. The music will appeal to all hillbilly toothless subconscious persona you have (I know you have that persona, we all do).
It airs on Cartoon Network's late night edition Adult Swim. And it's sublime. Totally sublime. Also on this programming you will find Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Superjail, Robot Chicken, The Venture Brothers, etc. We cannot go to bed without first checking out what's on Adult Swim. It's like eating candy before going to bed, after brushing your teeth!
I made a series of t-shirts for Booby. Lot's of them feature the Stoopid Monkey from Robot Chicken's end credit. Some are from Squidbillies. I made him a "I ♡ COCK FIGHTING" shirt. Which he wears with pride. Well, not necessarily gay pride (I hope, for me because that would mean there's no future in us) but pride for the shirt and the show. At first he was afraid to wear it. But now it's one of the first shirts he grabs. And he loves to top it off with his Meatwad hat. Love the love cock/meat combo.
Anyhow, this reminds me of how important it is to read the fine print. Always. That meatwad hat? Fine example in fine print reading. I was stuck on the idea of buying this for his birthday last year. It was sold out on the Adult Swim online store. So, as always I checked out eBay. It was late. I had a few. And... found it. Excitedly I immediately clicked on the "buy now" button. Confirmed it. The next day, going over my bank account I realized I had paid $55 for this freakin hat! Fine example of fine print reading...
