I Like Wikipedia from Headline Shirts + Awesome Coupon

I Like Wikipedia Shirt FunnyI Like Wikipedia Shirt Funny

I just found out about Headline Shirts, and they’ve quickly become one of my favorite new brands. This shirt is awesome, from the font to the crazy kangaroo-eagle-lizard (that’s my interpretation), as well as laugh out loud funny. They’ve also been super nice and hooked me up with a sweet coupon code. If you use the code “TROUNDUP” at checkout, up until next Friday (Feb 6th) you’ll get a free surprise shirt with any purchase. Here are the details regarding the promotion from Jake, the guy who writes their awesome product descriptions (included below):

Users will receive a free “mystery shirt” of the same size with any order. (They should enter the code TROUNDUP on the shopping bag page, just after adding to cart.) They won’t know what they’re getting, except that it will be selected according to the design(s) they purchase.

One important thing to note: Users will actually not receive a notice of the free shirt after entering the coupon code. Instead, it will show up as a “$0.01″ discount. But they should rest assured they’ll be getting a free shirt. (This is just the way our coupon system works right now, unfortunately.)

Now here’s that product description I promised. It gave me chuckles:

Some people say Wikipedia can’t be trusted, but I think it’s great for getting general information on a topic. Like, did you know that the Civil War and the War of 1805 were actually separate battles, despite the fact of them occurring in the same century?

I also learned that pornography has been around since the dawn of sex. Speaking of sex, you may be interested to know that Gordon Jump once guest-starred on an episode of Diff’rent Strokes as a pedophile who attempted to molest Arnold and his best friend Dudley (played by the actor Shavar Ross, who has been married since 1992 and has at least two children).

Speaking of the eighties, John Lennon (born Johnathan Chaz Ono Lennon) was shot and later died during the 1980s while wearing his favorite “New York City” t-shirt during one of his last concerts with the Mets at Beatles Stadium. He wrote a comic called “The Daily Howl” as a child.

Speaking of t-shirts, I made myself this Wikipedia t-shirt. Did you know that Kangaroos are actually not born with wings but develop them later in life? Guess where I learned that!

Thanks to Tcritic for letting me know about these guys!
