The connection to Greece is through Greek mythology. The design references Homer's Iliad, in which Polyphemus, one of the Cyclopes, tended a flock of sheep.

Yes, but that doesn't explain why he's a panda.

The Pandora's Box shirt, for example, is clever because it's an obvious play on the word "Pandora". I'm not seeing a panda connection here.

Right, because (for example, not picking on Ocho) Trojan mice make sense in context?
It's a fun take on Greek mythology.
Plus Qwertyuiop007 is a Panda furry, just saying.

I have a shirt catalog, y'all!

Because margarinefly sounds awkward.

My speech is not parsing. I am speaking in ellipsis.
