And the winner is: gamma, for the following gem.

Friday caption contest

“Absolut Americana” …I don’t think I’m legal to hawk this…

If you would like your little darlings to feature in future Friday Caption Contests, please save the picture as a JPG (400 pixels wide or narrower, plzthx) and email it to me at raincoaster at gmail dot com.  Soon, the glories of immortal fame and the indignities of being captioned (and perhaps even LOLed) will be theirs!

As I have stated before, it is difficult to find clothes, especially shirts, for boys that do not fall into the same boring categories of stripes, solids, or bad graphics. You’ve all seen those graphics, of weird wolves baying at the moon or crazy looking spiders that look like they could kick Charlotte’s butt with a flick of a spinneret.  Man, some of them scare me, and they aren’t even for Halloween. I appreciate realism as much as the next gal, but I’d rather not purchase a shirt that looks like the thing on it is gonna leap off and eat my kid. 

I’ve been on the lookout for designers that give me button-downs, but with a twist. If I see yet another shirt with just stripes, I’m going to stage a sit-down protest right there in the store.  Anybody with me?  Fine, if you just get on the floor with me, I’ll be the one to go to jail.  I’ll just say you were trying to talk me down.

Anyhoo, I think I have found a company, although they don’t hit the mark with every shirt, that at least attempts to come up with clothing that is whimsical, but leaves the retreads to others.  Can my sentences have any more commas?

Take a look at some shirts from Wonderboy:

Snake Eyes Shirt

Here’s a close-up of the pattern, called “Snake Eyes”

Swatch of Snake Eyes

Finally, something a little different!  Here’s another shirt:

Marrakesh Shirt

Perhaps a bit busy for some, but fun, no?

What do you think?  Is the line too “funky” or “urban?” Or is it refreshing and fun?

No y’all, she isn’t one of your choices! Because I say so!
