Murdock Wins a Round (for once)

I was ranting to "Howling Mad" Murdock about the environmental irresponsibility of producing Earth Day 2008 shirts. Just think, all of those resources and energy consumed, all of that pollution released into the air and streams, all for a shirt that is good for one day of the year!

(I was ranting, really, just for the hell of it; and I felt as if I was on a roll).

Murdock countered that the shirts can be worn on days other than Earth Day, that they can serve as reminders of the Earth Day spirit--but he didn't clarify which spirit--the Ghost of Earth Day Past, the Ghost of Earth Day Present, or the Ghost of Earth Day Yet to Come.

I fired back a "from the hip" salvo with the clever quip that any movement that can be reduced to a t-shirt slogan/graphic is pathetic.

Without missing a beat, he shot back, "Ron Paul for President."

Touché, my friend. Touché.

    Unlike a Ron Paul 2008 shirt, or my Lolapalooza 1994 shirt (my favorite for half a decade), an Earth Day 2008 shirt isn't even cool for one day. You'll never see me wearing one of those dork indicators. Is that the best design they could come up with? Lame!! I miss my Lolapalooza shirt, and the 90s in general. Do you have my Nevermind CD?
