The Horrifying, Mystifying, Wonder-Filled World of Houston T-Shirts on eBay
There are few things more disposable these days than a T-shirt. The problem is, you just can't bring yourself to throw one out.
It's still a shirt, right? Someone could fit into it somewhere, you know? So instead of getting tossed, they go to Goodwill or get used as a dustrag or to wash the car.
Or they end up on eBay.
We recently did a search for Houston-related T-shirts on the bidding site and were both appalled, and applauding, over what we found.
10. Alas, the days of "just doing it" in the Dome are gone
Not only does it have a bold design, the motto -- with all the subtlety of the Beatles' "Why Don't We Do It in the Road" -- is made even more clear with the addition of "do me."
9. Your vajazzle is in the wrong place
The designers of this T-shirt miraculously found the one thing that could make the Rockets' silly '90s logo look any sillier -- take the details out of it and make it an amorphous blob! And that's not all -- bejazzle that baby up!!
Such a shirt should be displayed with only the utmost of care, of course. By, ummm, hanging it on some anime poster over a rolling hamper. It speaks to us on so many levels.
8. Now this is sweet
No complaints about this: a straight-from-the-'80s balloon vest for fans of a doomed franchise. Sweetness abounds here; the owner is so reluctant to part with this that he hovers protectively over it, casting a shadow that tries to hide those details that would draw buyers in.
Or maybe he just threw the coat on the floor, whipped out the camera and was done in 15 seconds.
