Think Alice or her gasmask got tweaked a bit, as well. Speaking of which, this makes my 2nd Cho shirt. Nice job, sorry I was doubting you, just been awhile since one appealed to me.

First shirt I've bought in months... since January I think (for myself, that is- not counting shirts purchased for the gf). Too funny... nice work.

ONE OF THESE DAYS, I'M GOING TO CUT YOU INTO LITTLE PIECES.

For those that are upset, look at it this way: All these bad or utterly misguided men (aside from Marx--I think he had good intentions, but was just too idealistic) are being depicted playing a board game. All their dreams of domination are reduced to a depiction of them guffawing over a board game. Sometimes the best response to something you hate is to laugh at it--hence the plethora of Looney Tunes and Disney cartoons that poked fun at Hitler and the Japanese.

Cute, but not for me this time. I do find it interesting that Marx & Lenin have N. America. Represents our post-FDR era, I suppose.

I love the shirt.
All RISK game players should BUY this. I love the game.
Cho is famous here and will be famous nationwide someday. Every piece of Cho art that you can get your hands on today could be a collectors item in 2040!

Yikes...talk about perpetuating a false image of Marx - I thought the Red Scare was over! I get the concept of the shirt, but Marx never argued for "ruling" the world, never had a direct stance on Politics, and only really addressed economic structures and inequality. He has no place in this shirt.

don't let the man get you down

Yeah. It's almost like there's something inherent in a state-dominated system that invites abuse, huh? Weird.

I don't know, I think Adam Smith would have a place on a shirt full of arch capitalists. So Marx is fair game. And he did urge (or reason that it would happen) for revolutionary overthrows, so that is a practical political implication.

seems like everyone is arguing who was left off of the shirt, you should be arguing at the awefull colors on the shirt or the but ugly color of green that it is on.. there is way... to much brown and olive green here.

Hmm, I think you are stretching. Simply put, Except for Marx, the design depicts dictators, playing a board game similar to Go, which makes perfect sense, so Marx doesn't fit there. But, if you include Marx in there, then you are depicting what? Communists playing a board game similar to Go? And he's playing the board game because he wrote that the natural societal order would be for the proletariat to revolt and prevail against the Bourgeoisie? That doesn't seem to fit.

Marx' image is pretty well known to the public, so he was an easy insertion to make. I guess adding Stalin to the party would have begun to make this design a bit too similar to the *other* shirt.

the design doesn't seem to fit well on the shirt... looks like a patch you would iron onto material... i dunno, thats the impression i get at least.

Actually, no, that would make this shirt incredibly unfunny. It doesn't even make sense.

As soon as I saw this shirt in the derby I knew it was a winner, and I knew I'd be getting a couple. The only surprise was that I had to wait until today to buy it!

Actually adding Lenin fits the main theme (revolution) of the derby better. He was the leader in the October Revolution. After his death, Stalin took over the Soviet Union. Because of the atrocious things he did while in power, Stalin is better known. Everyone should relax a little bit. The other ideas on this shirt are secondary themes.
