Let’s table the shirt talk for a minute. I need to discuss a serious issue with you…
Oh, I’m sorry, were you expecting me to write some clever little words to sell a shirt full of clever little words? Well TOO BAD! Maybe you weren’t aware of this, but the world is rapidly depleting its clever little word resources. Why, just today at the Woot office, I needed a pun for a Tablet PC, so I trekked all the way down to the pun well only to find it had RUN DRY!
So, to be totally honest, I find this shirt a bit wasteful. I mean sure, having the elemental abbreviation “Si” stand for “yes” is really funny, as is “Ba” standing for “Sheep.” But you know what? I bet there are orphans out there that pray, every night, that they will be given the chance to make a bilingual affirmation joke, or a misunderstood-for-an-animal-noise joke. But now, they might not have the chance! Because you wanted them both on a shirt. Think about it: what if 114 orphans could each just make one of the tiny jokes on this shirt? Imagine the difference that could make in the world!
Listen, you may say that I’m dreamer, but I’m not the only one! Maybe some day you’ll join us, and the world will live as one!
Wear this shirt: periodically. (Oh wait, looks like we were able to drill for more puns.)
Don’t wear this shirt: if you’re a total boron. (Seriously, we found a lot more puns.)
This shirt tells the world: “I am in my element!” (My cup overfloweth with puns!)
We call this color: Green. (Looks like, after those last three, the pun well went dry again.)
