You Can't Resist Are On We You're Wind

The collection of Korean T-shirts that Heatherbee shared with us back in October was a real hit, and I wish I could tell you that she had brought back as many from her recent excursion to Indonesia. Alas, Heatherbee could not stay long in Indonesia and was not able to concentrate fully on T-shirt acquisition, for reasons that remind us that although Dengue Fever is a great band, it is not an especially great band name.

So, she was only able to bring us back one shirt. But it's a good 'un.



If any of all y'all -- there's no size given, but you would need to be on the slender side, and presumably female -- think you could pull it off, it is yours on the condition that you agree to send back in a picture of yourself wearing it proudly in public. Just let me know.

(Heatherbee, incidently, is fully recovered, safe, and happy. So don't fret.)

I nominate Fingers for your model.

I'm going on a diet right now. I'll let you know when I'm on the correct side of slender.

@Margaret: A fabulous nomination!

I thought to nominate myself too, but being of an Asian persuasion, would someone think that's how I speak? Would that be too insecure of me to care?

@Fingers, I think you'd pull it off just fine. Besides you're about the only "slender female" I know! Oh wait, there is Mrs. 5000 ...

Perhaps you two should thumb-wrestle for it.

BTW, in case we poke too much fun at the shirt's language, Chinglish, Asianlish and, uh, Korealish? are very difficult languages. First you have to be fluent in the Asian one and then pick up just enough English to go wild. For me, nothing best exemplifies the marvelous result than the "Shitty Kitty" pencil box a friend of mine spotted on one of her student's desks while she was teaching in Taiwan.

Oh I wish I were more on the slender side! This shirt is hilarious.

In Spain we used to go shirt-shopping, looking for just this thing. We were rarely disappointed. The sad news is that I did not photograph the experience, because back in the day I didn't have a digi camera. And I was way, way too poor to actually buy any of the shirts. Or film, it turns out.

Cheers to whoever wins this treasure!

I have seen some spirit week posters that have similar grammar actually. :-D

If it is a truly tiny tee, I nominate myself. I have been sized out of everything from the Gap to Banana Republic. I'm going to have to start shopping at TeenGap.
