A part of me says this can’t be true – maybe it’s a publicity stunt, or that the tidal wave of positive e-mails urging T-Shirt Hell to stay open will change his mind.
That was my ‘say it ain’t so’ moment I had while writing the ‘T-Shirt Hell is closing‘ post one week ago. I really did believe that T-Shirt Hell was going out of business, and I’m not sure I can blame myself for taking the bait. Their eccentric owner is clearly capable of doing things on a whim, like legally changing his name to Sunshine Megatron, for example. He also closed down his spinoff t-shirt store Torso Pants late last year. Besides, I figured that if T-Shirt Hell really wanted to pull a hoax like this, they would have already done it years ago, at a time when their tees were at the height of contraversy.
I guess I got played for a fool, after all. So, the moral of the story is that, If you are planning on having children in the future, you’ll still have to worry about some douchebag wearing one of these god-damn t-shirts in front of your kids.
