ROFLMAO tshirt by Dirty Microbe


After having just received my, “The Communist Party” tshirt from Threadless, this shirt, ROFLMAO from Dirty Microbe, caught my eye. The shirt features everyone’s favorite person, Chairman Mao, with the ever popular ROFLMAO underneath. A great shirt for both your local communist AND geek.

Price: $15.00 | Dirty Microbe



  • I have seen a great many shirts in my day come and go, but I think that this one is up on my list of greatest shirts of all time. I think that it is a combination of the simplistic color scheme and picture of Mao with nothing more than ROFLMAO. First you have the obvious meaning of ROFLMAO, then you have the fact that Mao’s name is actually included in abbreviated slang text. I don’t really know why this combination works out so well for the T-shirt, but I think that it is going to be one of those items that people either immediately get and respond to, or they will stand there scratching their heads for several seconds trying to figure it out. And those are some of my favorite types of shirts, so you can bet that I’m going to be trying to get my hands on one of those Mao shirts.

  • I would strongly recommend steering clear of Dirty Microbe. There are tons of dissatisfied customers out there, myself included, who have never gotten their shipments. It’s been nearly a month since I’ve ordered my Dirty Microbe shirts. I’ve sent three emails and gotten no response. Next step is a chargeback through my card company.

  • I’m getting worried too, I’ve tried contacting them but I’m getting no response.

  • I ordered shirts from them on May 9th. To this day I have yet to recieve any sort of contact/response at all from Dirty Microbe (yes, I contacted them multiple times), much less my shirts. I resorted to doing a chargeback on July 19th. Sadly, I’ve seen people saying they got “human” responses from the guy who runs it on July 20th, which were only string-along BS responses when it comes down to it.

    Try calling them up; last I heard their phone numbers had been disconnected.

  • Oh well, I guess I lose out on the $75 of affiliate commissions they owe me. I’ll take off all their banners as soon as I’m back on my own computer

  • I too have been scammed. I asked about filing a charge back, but my bank said I need to work it out with the company (I’d be talking to myself though), and advised me also that I would need to file a police report.

    Made Digg today.

    I am bummed to say the least.

  • I’m afraid I already lost my enthusiasm towards the company or site that distributes this shirt. I’ve heard a lot of bad comments about them and their reputation is no longer that credible. I guess I’ll just find another site that offers an equally cute shirt.
