Happiness


Slag’s mom has been clearing out a lot of old stuff and she brought this T-shirt by, thinking he might like to have it.

Apparently, sometime in the mid 70’s when he was in high school, Slag was sent home because he wore this to school. Twice. On two consecutive days.
I’m told that he argued with the principal that it was just a picture of a cat in a bottle, but the oppressive Public School Industrial Complex didn’t see it his way and insisted that he wear something else. So he wore it again on the third consecutive day and got suspended.

Somehow, after living with the man for 8 years, I’m not surprised. Not a bit.

I'm not so disturbed by the fact that he has this shirt as I am by the expression on the cat's face. Is that...satisfaction?

kara, Back in the olden days "tight" was another word for "drunk," so I'm thinking the cat is supposed to be drunk. Which would indicate satisfaction. So I think you're exactly right. Now I'm wondering why nobody uses "tight" anymore....

jazz, Yep, the cat looks a little smug to me too, which is appropriate.

rachel, I think he's pretty interesting. The principal probably did too, but not in the same way.

mauigirl, No one can claimt hat he doesn't stand up for what he believes in, no matter how inappropriate. :)

evil spock, Let's not get carried away. Slag may get a big head and then I'll have to live with it. :)

brother dean, Of course! You can always count on us to aid and abet inappropriateness in all its forms. I do want to hear the explanation you offer your kids though.....

Not surprised that he--what?--made it through school at all.


His mother must have been so proud, with a son sporting that tshirt publicly.

Go, Slag!

My brother had a t-shirt that looked like a funky skull, but was actually three Very Naked Ladies coming together to form a skull-like shape. The powers that were never noticed though; he certainly was never sent home.

Belated Merry Christmas, and have a really great 2008 Jill!
