Yeah, that whole cultural sensitivity is a real pain in the ass.

I read up on the history of the Virgin of Guadalupe. The long and short of it is that this guy Juan Diego saw an image of the Mary and no one believed him so he went back to where he saw Mary and she gave him these roses that wouldn't have grown at that time of year and he gathered them in his shirt and took them to the Bishop. He opened the shirt to the Bishop and the image appeared on the inside of his shirt. So, I guess this would be offensive because of the roses being a nod at the image and simultaneously Mary being depicted as a skeleton.

I'm pretty sure the people who celebrate Dia De Los Muertos are catholic... and the figure appears to be praying, not giving the finger, or flinging poo. Dia De Los Muertos is about celebration and reverence. I don't think Senor Toon was out to offend anyone.

I like how you were offended or disturbed BEFORE you knew what it was all actually about.

I am doomed! Mountain time still confuses me after 26 years. The cannibal candy corn shirt I had hoped to get on the 2nd go around was a bust, failed again to get in on the last chance! The story of my life, always there after the last meatball has been served!!! I'm not looking for those fully cooked, just those rare to medium rare. In fact, I do believe I am a fan off candy corn carrapiciacio!

I bought three of these at 1:20 this morning,
told my friends they should buy it too because of its awesomeness,
and it's gone by 1:30.

Out by the first hour and a half.
That's abso-tively ama-credible.

Finally one that I am ready to order and it's sold out. Do we get another shot at this for $10 or is this also a 'deal de los muertos'?

Yeah, I figured you might. I'm just pushing buttons. It would just be mean if I meant all that I said. I tend to enjoy "overreacting" in the opposite way other people overreact, though it probably doesn't help.

However, I do think the shirt is fine -- it is art, and open to interpretation... Much like Mama Knows Best (EAT MY APPLES!).

Don't like the shirt? Offended? Don't buy it. I'm not fond of your church and it offends me at times but I don't complain about you going or demand you and your church be sensitive to my oh so precious feelings. It's a freaking shirt, life will go on.

Religions are quite fascinating. Pretty amazing how people become convicted about certain things without seemingly reasonable evidence, don't you think?

You should have a little more respect for other religions, this has do to with a Mexican holiday. Get informed.

OK you are offended...don't buy it then, that is your perogative. But you don't have to make a big deal about it because you don't like this tshirt.

Dia de los Muertos is a HUGE holiday in Mexico, California and probably Arizona and New Mexico and Texas. I live in California and can only attest to California and Mexico (as I've been there too).

generally people are simpletons and this is not a bad thing - religion helps them so they will not have to worry about more things and leave it to others to worry....

Actually, I don't think it is a slight on the Virgin Mary but done out of love and respect (for the Virgin of Guadalupe). Why don't you read up on the Day of the Dead celebration and the history of the role of the skeleton in Mexican folk art?

I would have bought one of these for myself, but was too late darn it!

Wow, thanks for the great response.
I didn't mean for the shirt to be a slight on Mary. I'm not religious at all, but I really love religious art.
Also, skeletons are cool.
Thanks to everyone who bought one. I am looking forward to doing more shirts in this style, if not the same subject matter.

I have that conviction; I am Catholic, I belive Mary was assumed.

I am not offended.

Tolerance is a two way street.

Besides, my believeing that Mary was assumed means that image, if it is supposed to be depicting Mary, can have no basis in reality for me.
