I’m going to keep this one real simple because today’s Buy Me Things entry is a total no-brainer for two very good reasons.
1) I like t-shirts.
2) I like McRibs.
As such, you can see probably understand exactly why you should go ahead and buy me this:
Yep, that’s right folks…we’ve got ourselves a fancy lookin’ McRib shirt right here.
Now, I know what y’all are thinking:
“How is it possible that an impulse shopper such as yourself—who is currently embattled in a serious t-shirt addiction—has not already purchased a product which so blatantly belongs on your back?!?!”
My only response is this…
It’s gonna set a brotha back more than $30 to get his McRib sauce-stained hands on one of these suckers.
I know, right?!
The shirt itself is $24, that’s a little steep for a t-shirt, but for something so obviously made just for me, it’s doable.
Then you get to the shipping and they’re looking for like another $8ish just to have ‘em put it in a plastic grocery bag and duct tape it to a pelican in hopes that he’ll eventually drop it somewhere in the greater Boston metro area.
Author’s Note: I’m not entirely sure that “USPS Priority Mail” actually involves pelicans, duct tape or grocery bags, but that’s how I picture it in my head…
If I want the thing to reliably get here in any sort of timely fashion the shipping costs range from right around $12 to an absolutely redonkulous $81.
That’s too rich for my blood.
Granted, with my birthday a mere 25 shopping days away, it seems like the right time to let all y’all know how bad-ass I think this shirt is. Also, I wear a size large.
You know…for those of y’all who are still searching for gift ideas.
Now close-up shots of the front and back of the shirt for those of you who are still on the fence:
UPDATE: So get this, y’all…my Mama totally bought this shirt for me!! It showed up on my birthday!! How freakin’ awesome is that?!
