Agreed. Too easy to confuse it with wee, wee, wee all the way home.

That plan will only work if you actually call out his name or mention how thirsty you are for Kool-Aid, and as we all know, pigs that are sophisticated enough to build their own houses only drink tea.

There are 10 kinds of people in this world: those who can read binary and those who can't.

I would buy this if it were on a gray t-shirt instead of green. Seems like a bad idea to print on a color that generally doesn't look good on people in large amounts.

I suspect many sales will be in sizes for children.

I actually thought maybe you were a fan of the band The Impossibles... of course tora tora kamikaze was not invented by them, but it would be pretty cool if you were... ("no lookin' back, a tactic of considerable power")

OH YEAH, very cool design

The wolf had originally asked a giant can of soda to help out, but he just couldn't get the job done. Everyone knows Kool-Aid goes three times as far. Duh.

I mean, it seems like the big bad wolf gets all the perks...he gets in the house to the pigs, and the Kool-Aid man gets....?

JFC... It's parody! It requires the use of or imitation of a previous artists' work. That's what it means. It would have no meaning to anyone if the drawing had a picture of a completely "original" bunny in a tuxedo pointing out a red brick house to a pitcher of milk with legs.


Parody defined.

Fair use of parody discussed.

Here's a design where the concept of parody is put to its proper use, and you call ripoff. I don't think you understand that meaning of the word, considering what you defend and what you have attacked.

A ripoff is the theft or plagiarism of an idea. I imagine that Torakamikaze knows full well that this character is a spitting image of the Big Bad Wolf. It's the idea that's both a parody and original in its execution.

A ripoff would be an unedited image of the wolf, or the Kool-Aid man, without any parody or subtext. This shirt is a great reference for how to pull off a parody well.

I'd love to see a spinoff of this shirt with the bull from the Schlitz Malt Liquor commercials from the late 70s and early 80s.

I love this shirt and want to buy it, but it appears to be Reckoned. I'm wondering if there is a way to purchase it, or a system that will notify me when it is available again.
