Sorry to see this wonderful shirt possibly reckoned. Especially since two, possibly three, of the shirts still being sold are stolen art.
that was fun while it lasted!

Last night, my brother destroyed his The Epic Begins shirt. Thanks to him being a good Samaritan for a stupid, stupid, stupid, stupid, stupid.... girl.
The girl needed a jump because her car was dead. So, he hooked up her old and craptastic cables to his and her car. He turned on his car and she tried to turn her car on. No dice. Then the cables started to smoke. So my brother turned his car off and needed something to cover his hands to pull the cables off.
Yup, he took off his super otterific amazing The Epic Begins (no longer available) shirt to cover his hands to pull the melting cables off his car and her car.
Shirt ruined. Ultimate sacrifice made. Here's to you, TMNT shirt.
The girl proceeds to tell my little brother that the battery is original to the car. 11 years old. And that she has been getting her car jump started for a few weeks now. And that she'll get him a replacement shirt**.
TRANSLATION: She's been getting the car jump started for the last few months. I bet 6 months.
WHAT?!?! No wonder your cables melted and battery wouldn't take a charge! I totally flip out on him (being a car nut..) Yes, I carry a voltmeter in my vintage cars.
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT: If you need a JUMP to start your car, GO GET YOUR CAR CHECKED OUT. Don't wait! Drive to a garage, not until you need another jump.
Final thoughts. Yes, my little bro really loved, for a short time, his The Epic Begins t shirt. It was one of the few WOOT shirts he wears on a regular basis. (I'm batting .500 with shirts he likes.)
**She was told about Shirt.WOOT and it is no longer available.
Anyone got an extra adult male size XL for sale? Let me know.
Well, so far there's only a men's large on teetrade. But, please, follow the advice I laid out here for how to go about finding the shirt. Good luck!
I rose in rainy autumn and walked abroad in a shower of all my days.
