My New T-Shirt:

 

Just got it in the mail, and like it a lot. I saw it years ago at an airport, was reminded of it a few days ago, and decided to buy it online.

The Paleoartisans site from which I bought it isn't really well set up for taking online orders; but if you e-mail paleoartisans@hotmail.com your name, address, credit card information (card number, expiration date, and the three-digit security code from the back — the very things you'd routinely use to buy things online), authorization to charge you $18.75, T-shirt size, and color (select from these), you'll get the shirt in a few days. And, no, I'm not getting any money (or free shirts) from them.

The one thing I'd have liked even more would be a similar T-shirt with the text "People's Front for the Liberation of Gondwanaland." Also ordered recently, though from different sellers: A Curious George shirt, matching father-and-sons Russian Winnie-the-Pooh (Vinni-Pukh) T-shirts (CafePress), a Cheburashka and Crocodile Gena T-shirt (also CafePress), and a Che Burashka T-shirt (also CafePress):

COMMUNIQUE: The People's Committee has officially expelled Prof. Volokh as a bourgeois deviationist for limiting his political efforts to the reunification of Gondwanaland.

The correct path to mass liberation lies not in such half-measures, but in the full-fledged reunification of Pangaea.

A complete non-sequitur. I recently observed "Che" Cafe (no relation to CafePress) on the campus of UCSD. It was covered with a lush mural in the color palette similar to the t-shirt. The image of Che on the mural was complemented not by Burashka but by Marx of the non-Groucho variety. And I thought that guy had retired to Gondwanaland. Frankly, my dear, I was not amused (OK, maybe a little).

Unlike the Judean Popular People's Front, it seems awfully accurate to say that the Gondwana supporters really are a bunch of splitters.

And who stands up for Laurasia in all this?

I always thought that credit card information was exactly the kind of thing that should not be e-mailed. Am I mistaken?

Wait! How could you put up a post about T-shirts and not mention illegalbriefs.com? There is a whole line of products that say "I [heart] Eugene Volokh." There are also "harmless error" baby bibs and "amicus curiae" underwear.

How dumb/out-of-touch would I look if I asked for an explanation of the jokes on these shirts?

Not dumb or out-of-touch, but unwilling to Google.

I hear ya but I wasn't quite sure what the lettering on the second was and an attempt or two didn't appear to be yielding English hits. Not that I really have some pressing need to know; I think the effort I put into typing this is wildly disproportionate to my original interest, so joke's on me I guess. Anyways, fine blog you got here.

Who wants to noise it around the conservative blawgosphere that Doc Volokh is proudly touting his acquisition of red and black red "Che" T-shirts?

YS: While ol' Carlo Marx (funnier than Zeppo! more talkative than Harpo!) has been consigned to Gondwanaland, or the "dustbin of history", as a source of ideology, as an occasional source for interesting frameworks for political analysis, he's still stirring up dust. Even here: take a look about five or six VC threads above, for a discussion laden with repeated references to "class conflict" and "class interests". . .

I like their "I Don't Roll on Shabbos!" T-shirt, from The Big Lebowski.

Personally, I'd prefer to get one of these.

I've got a Che shirt, but with Che in the middle of a big red circle with a line through it.

I wear it on May Day and the 4th of July. Go America!

Sure, and the word "nazi" is also still quite current in discussions. But seriously, this was invoked to debunk a novel theory by likening it to the one by Karla Marla.

This "che" is not your average guerilla honcho. It won't hunt without "burashka". Search for "cheburashka".
