Apropos of spices, this seems like a good time to ask the Old Spice Man for advice. The question:

"We love eating various Asian spices in our meals at home. How can my man enjoy it while still smelling like an Old Spice Man - and not a Cumin Spice Man?"

Are you high? They're ALL better fresh. Much, much better.

It's just that dried versions are just much more familiar since most people buy them because they keep for way longer. Most people don't want to buy a whole bunch of fresh rosemary sprigs, for instance, because it might get used for a single meal and then 90% of it will just get thrown out eventually. Whereas garlic can be bought as a single head pretty much anywhere.

Which I suppose is actually quite a valid reason to buy them that way, but to say that they are BEST when dried physically made me cringe, and I'm disappointed in Woot that things went on so long without a single reply to this bizarre claim. Not by a longshot are they at their best when dried though - it is merely a practical matter that they even exist in such a form.

Yes, the idea was shamelessly stolen, but it's brilliant and the only way it fits well

Tongue in cheek at this hour, I have willingly taken care of people with schizophrenia, so I took carte blanche when I shouldn't have? Did I misread your intent? It's hard to tell when it's only written.

As a member of PETS (People for the Ethical Treatment of Seasonings), I must vehemently protest the unequal treatment of the spices on this shirt! Sure, the garlic gets to run free, but the others are kept as indentured servants within the walls of their polypropylene prisons. That is discrimination, pure and simple. Oh, the shame!

I think this would make an awesome greeting card, but a very poor shirt.

Add a pinch of pun, a dash of flavor, and you've got yourself a tasty shirt.

My cat freaks out when he smells oregano. It's better than cat nip to him. Spaghetti night is always fun here.

Don't like the garlic.. he seems out of place. Maybe a shaker filled with Thyme or something instead. Maybe call it "Seasonings Greetings".

Or it could be an educational PSA on the condition of schizophrenics...

Christopher Walken - "Check with your friends and family, If they don't, then you should seek help"

I think it should've been Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme for an extra little reference.

hehehehe this reminds me of psychology class my senior year in high school. We had an assignment to get in groups and come up with Christmas carols relating to mental illnesses. The Schizo one "Do You Hear What I Hear" that they did was priceless!! My group had Dementia and we did "Walking in a Winter Wonderland"
Said something like " I really don't know, How I got here, Walking in a winter wonderland. I walk around, with a blank stare..." as opposed to "A beautiful sight, we're happy tonight, Walking in a winter wonderland. Gone away, is the bluebird" lolololol man that was a miserably sad but funny class period.

No. Everyone else gets it. The pun is in the title of the shirt. They are seasonings, and they are greeting each other. Season's Greetings.

Ugh, okay I'm not a fan of puns so I will not be picking one of these up.

That said, why choose a grey shirt background? It makes it look so... touristy. Like one of those designs you pick off a wall and have some gift shop iron onto a shirt. Either a little more color or a lighter background would help this look less plain.

I was looking for a way to spice up my boring holidays!

nrwyldheaven


quality posts: 1 Private Messages nrwyldheaven

I just want to clear up a couple of misconceptions that I've seen here already.

First, these are all herbs not spices including garlic.

And although I agree that fresh herbs are usually preferable to dried, there are times when I like the dried versions better. For example, I like dried oregano for most things.

BTW, salt is a mineral but is considered a seasoning.

With that being said, I think this shirt design is awesome!

I can hear Garlic saying:

Hello Ladies!

Look at yourself- now back at me!

Sadly, you're not me. But you could smell as fresh as me if you weren't inside those plastic bottles.

Look down.
Back up.

I'm in that recipe you would taste great in if only you were as fresh as me!

Swan dive! Into a great pot of marinara sauce!

This design could have been a bit more apropos if the inGREETients included nutmeg, ginger, sage.... My house typically smells like evergreen around holidays however but I don't suppose many people use that as a seasoning.
No, probably not many.
