If you’re looking to showcase a political t-shirt but don’t like what the actual parties have to offer, Fancy Politics is for you. They have some interesting takes on the current election, as well as a few shirts from the past, including this Bill Clinton themed shirt, Rascal. They also have a JFK shirt if that’s more your style.
Rascal, and the rest of their offerings, can be found at the Fancy Politics store. It sells for $20.
P.S. Don’t tell Hillary about “rascal”.
I just got an email from Onur about his cool new brand out of Turkey called Kaft. They’ve got some very interesting/cool designs, of which this one is probably my favorite. It has to do with separation of powers within the government according to the description, but I admit that my brain is fried and it’s late right now so I can’t pinpoint what the symbolism is. At this point, I just think it’s a really cool looking t-shirt design.
You can pick up this Hakim t-shirt for $34.90 from the Kaft store–it’s a little pricey, but sometimes you have to pay a bit for cool designs.
This post is not intended to be political (not even in the slightest). Rather, I wanted to share this design because I love horrible puns, and this t-shirt made me laugh pretty hard (I know it’s a ridiculous pun–that’s what makes it funny!). I just find the juxtaposition of Black Walnut (Herman Cain) with a Scorpions song pretty funny. So yeah, excuse the horrible pun, but it made me laugh, and maybe it will do the same for you.
If you like the pun so much you want to rock it on your chest, you can snag it for $23.95 from Zazzle. I will do my best to apolitically post some more “funny” (in my opinion, at least) political t-shirts as the election process drags on. I’ve also got a page that lists a bunch of Zazzle coupons to help you save some money. They’ve had some pretty awesome coupon codes lately.
I want to buy this t-shirt mainly for the almost guaranteed huge number of double-takes it would generate. The t-shirt looks very much like the iconic Che Guevara t-shirt, until you notice that powerful ‘stache. Then you’re like, “Tom Selleck, WTF mate?” Hilarity ensues. This shirt is just too goddamn ridiculous and funny not to post.
You can grab the design for $24.00 from the Headline Shirts store. It’s printed on their own Vintage blend t-shirt. As with all the other Headline Shirts tees I post, be sure to read the description. They’re usually pretty fun. Now go out and show your love for this Magnum P.I. revolutionary.
I think this t-shirt is based on a TV show (Rocko’s Modern Life maybe?). I’ve never seen that show though, so I don’t really care about the connection. I just think it’s a pretty funny take on the huge power that corporations exert in the modern world. Something about the entire earth just being an olive in Conglomo’s martini cracks me up, in a dark depressing way. The “We Own You” tagline just adds to that even further. Something about this tee just resonates with me and makes me chuckle.
You can pick up the t-shirt and support your favorite fictional, world-dominating conglomerate at Busted Tees. It will cost you $20.00 and is printed on American Apparel. For a very short time, you can still get 25% off with troundup’s exclusive Busted Tees coupon. That coupon is expiring very soon though, so don’t wait around.
Blood is the New Black has some crazy t-shirts–this being one of them. Still, I find myself oddly attracted to it. It’s definitely an interesting statement on fur and what it means. You wouldn’t get red paint thrown on you, but you could probably start some interesting conversations. Anyway, I dig it, even though its a bit of a departure from the usual t-shirts that I feature on troundup.
You can pick it up for the slightly stiff price of $44.00 at the Blood is the New Black store.
So…I never thought I would do this, but I’m about to post a shirt from the often maligned T-Shirt Hell. I like some of their Torsopants designs (which I’ve posted about before), but this is the first, and odds are, the last, design I have ever posted from the main T-Shirt Hell line. All that negative stuff being said…I really like this shirt. The three people depicted, Rush Limbaugh, Sarah Palin, and Glenn Beck, are stooges, and I’ll leave it at that because I don’t want to get too political. The shirt is just legitimately funny.
Also, Glenn Beck insulted Philadelphia with some completely ridiculous statements, so I gotta get my jab back. In case you’re not familiar with Philadelphia, the City Hall area is incredibly safe, and I’ve frequently walked around the area after 10pm. Glenn was just angry that Philadelphia didn’t want to listen to his radio show anymore.
If you wanna pick this shirt up, you can buy it for $20 at T-Shirt Hell. We’ve also got coupons for T-Shirt Hell to hopefully save you some money. Lemme know if you hate me for posting a shirt mocking Glenn and company!
So…this shirt is amazing. If you don’t know, this is based on a (famous?) picture of Nixon and Elvis shaking hands (see the original below), only with Nixon replaced with Darth Vader. Obviously, given how Nixon’s presidency turned out, the substitution is pretty hilarious. I like that it works on two levels–first, it’s funny for people who don’t know the original picture because it’s, well, Elvis and Darth Vader shaking hands. But for those who do know the picture, it’s even more humorous, as well as pretty dang political (if you want it to be).
I think this is one of my favorite Headline Shirts designs (and I like a lot of their shirts, so that actually means something). If you want this sweetness on your chest, you can buy it for $20.00 on American Apparel at their store. I also think the coupon I had for them is still working if you wanna check that out. I hope you enjoyed! Oh, read their product descriptions while you’re at the site–they’re often hilarious, and you’re missing out if you skip them.
So I finally finished the last of my five finals earlier today–it feels good to get that load off my back. I figured I’d celebrate by posting a shirt from one of my favorite brands, Print Liberation.
This one is called Save the World, and is quite witty in my opinion. It’s a goofily personified earth vomiting out green sludge, presumably created by humans. I think the message is valid, and more important for you aesthetic minded people, it’s funny, eye-catching, and just looks good.
If you’d like, you can pick it up for $25 at Print Liberation, printed on American Apparel. The stock is very limited so don’t dilly-dally.
This shirt made me chuckle, but also instilled a bit of fear in me due to the large size of Cheney’s mug on the front of the shirt. It’s good life advice though–just don’t be a dick. People tend to not like you if you shoot them in the face with a shotgun, or are a crooked old politician (or just a dick in general).
As with all Print Liberation shirts, the font is great, and the colors are minimal. You can pick it up for $18.00 at Print Liberation. You’ll get it just in time for the elections. It’s also printed on an American Apparel blank.
I need to try to get down to Print Liberation’s brick and mortar store now that I’m in Philadelphia–I imagine it would be pretty cool.
