"Who Are You? Perry Mason?"

I got my weekly email from Threadless T-Shirts last night and check out my new favorite design...

On the Threadless site, people who have purchased their t-shirts upload pictures of themselves in the various designs. I can't figure out which boy is cuter in this "Miss Scarlet" t...














They're both cute, but for me personally, I'd have to go with the emo guy who not only has a BATMAN BEGINS poster on his well, but also a THE WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH poster AND a framed, ginormous THUNDERBALL poster.

And even though I'm not as big of fan of the DIE HARD movies, with those DIE HARD posters on his wall, something tells me that when he's right at "that point," he screams...

"Yipee-ki-yay, motherfucker!"

And what's wrong with that?
Not a damn thing.

P.S. Anybody get my title for this posting? I met my senior year of college boyfriend saying that line out loud, believe it or not.

They're both pretty cute, but I do love a guy who loves Bond. And perhaps, just plain bondage. What the hell--life's about adventure, after all!

Doug said...

I love "Clue: the Movie!" Which is why I recognized your post title. My favorite quote (by the amazing Madeline Khan) is:
"Flames... flames... on the side of my face..."

Love you, sugar. And I so want one of those tees!

I knew you'd vote for the underdog!

Dana said...

No caption, but it's good to know that today's youth are versed in the classics.

Polt said...

I second Doug's quote. madeline Kahn was just amazing.

I think before I could decide, i'd jsut have to do them both and then say which was better. Seems only fair. Although, in general, I'd chose the emo boy. All that angst and unresolved emotional turmoil has to come out sometime...might as be whilst he's on his back underneath me, ya know?

HUGS...

I'd go with guy 1. Guy 2 is a lil too emo in the hair region for me. Though his room gets a clap.

what does emo mean?

aaron - Did you know that, for awhile, the James Bond fan magazine was entitled BONDAGE? I had a copy of BONDAGE at one time. Insert way-too-many jokes here.

doug - Leslie Ann Warren. A brilliant Miss Scarlett!

gregory - That underdog can be over me any day or night. A boy with Bond posters - - I'm there!!

dana - Amen to that! The first man I date who knows that the proper response to someone saying, "Do you expect me to talk?" is "No, Mr. Bond, I expect you to die!" will have me wrapped around his finger immediately! Well, wrapped around his finger and... other things...

polt - Great minds think alike! "Emo Underneath." Sounds like an album title, doesn't it?

mark - I love it!

the joy - His room DEFINITELY gets a clap. And whatever else he wants me to give him. :)

philip - Bring on the CLUE quotes! That one is pure genius!

lance - You're asking me? I'm two years shy of 40. When people were talking about things being "emo," I thought they were talking about that comedian from years ago. I'm so NOT hip.

ryan - Go, Ryan, Go! How about this one...

"Well someone has got to break the ice and it might as well be me you see I'm used to being a hostess as part of my husband's work and it's always difficult when a group of new friends gets together for the first time to get acquainted so I'm perfectly prepared to start the ball rolling you see I have absolutely no idea what we're doing here or what I'm doing here or what this place is about but I am determined to enjoy myself and very intrigued and oh my this soup's delicious."

ryan - Come on! You've gotta love a little Mrs. Peacock by way of the brilliantly bitter Eileen Brennan!

Ryan Barrett said...

No, Stephen, I was totally with you on that comment...after Mrs. Peacock delivers that beautiful speech, Mr. Green, Professor Plum and Miss Scarlet "stare blankly at Mrs. Peacock."
