Fabulous Dry T-Shirt Contest!

Welcome to "The Gods Are Bored!" Struggling to keep labor unions alive and healthy in America since the days of Ronnie "bust 'em" Reagan!

Mr. Johnson brought a brand-new t-shirt home from his union meeting last night.


Gorgeous deep purple color


Second line: Negotiable (bright red, cursive)

Third line: UNION (blue)

Fourth line: YES (stars n stripes)

Size: XL

This shirt can be yours, yes, yours! (It's too big for my girlish figure.)

All you have to do is:

1. Leave a comment
2. Send me an email (address in profile)

On Sunday I'll put all the names in a hat and draw one. In time for Labor Day, you could have the most bitchin, righteous union shirt on your block!

Oh, I forgot: The bottom of the shirt says


This added line will get you safely through any neighborhood in Philly. Any neighborhood in Philly. Any neighborhood in Philly.

And free beer if you wander into the right bar.

With an offer like that, how can I lose? sign me up! :-)

Yeah, sign me up as well.

My republican girlfriend is, though I couldn't tell you why, troubled by my outspoken union membership.

She's particularly bothered by me insisting that we not leave a movie until the I.A.T.S.E. logo scrolls by at the end of the credits, at which point I usually yell, "479 for Life!"

I'm a shop steward. It's part of what I do.

Um, thanks but I will pass on that.

I do support unions though, as long as they don't also get too greedy.

Boy, I went camping for two days and now you should see my dandelion crop. Have you got a dandelion wine recipe?

Just harvest the leaves and cook w/ a tiny bit of olive oil and onion. Dig the roots for a real cure.

Me, me, me, I want the shirt, me!

I started working when R. Regan was president, my best working years were when Clinton was president. My worst have been during the W years.

Unions have always been bust down here in the slave south.

I would like to have a union shirt but XL is too big for me too. Thanks for the offer/chance anyway.

Keep up the insightful work you do Anne, you rock!
