Come on, it is SLOTH not One-Eyed Willie. Heh.

Having not seen the email, I'm going to guess it references One Eyed Willie? Which is a CHARACTER in the movie The Goonies.
This shirt is of Sloth, who is another character in the movie The Goonies.

So... where is the outrage coming from?

Just re-looked at the email. It says:
Don't ever offer to "show someone your One-Eyed Willie".

I would guess if you are overly sensitive plus allow your imagination to make the Sloth skull look like the head of a circumcised penis, you could be outraged.

Some people must enjoy being outraged because they certainly like to look for reasons to be so.

Anybody see any giggling boys as a result of the email?

Oooh. The shape of his skull kind of looks like the "tip" of something obscene. And I say "kind of" very hesitantly, since it took me a minute or two to figure it out.

You are clearly in denial. It's ok, you can be a prude, but at least be proud of it.

Does anyone know if the hoodies tend to run on the tight or baggy side? According to the sizing chart for hoodies, I am right at an XL, but I don't want it to be too tight (nor do I want to swim in it either)

Sometimes people see what they want to see. I saw Sloth - you saw, well, I don't want to say what you saw since I want to keep this "kid friendly" as you say.



I don't see it, never saw one that looks like that either. Those people might want to talk to someone about their little problem. lol

The pullovers and zip-ups are true to size or slightly loose. The lightweight hoodies run tight, so that I order a size larger.

See, I'm thinking the the Sloth skull in that one is the exact same as the one on 6dollartee.

While this shirt definitely falls under the "similar shirts exist" rule, the blatant ripping off happened between teefury and $6tee.

It always amuses me to see people arguing over which artist cashing in on a hugely popular, original movie with a thinly veiled parody is ripping off the other. It's an awesome shirt. Buy it or don't. Buy it here or buy it from the other guy. I'm simply glad they exist. Viva la capitalism!!
