Hello all! Welcome to the fourth edition of…
Don’t be mad, Intermittent Readers, but today’s post is pretty much going to be phoned in. I apologize, I love you. It’ll still be good though, trust, folks.
Ok…so since this weekend is St. Patrick’s Day, T4T this week will feature a green shirt, friends! Thus endeth any sort of theme for today.
St. Patrick’s Day, a day of green beer, puking, and shenanigans (that sounds like an Irish word, right?).
Without further ado, I present to you, a shirt that has absolutely no relevance to St. Patrick’s Day (save the color) and was, in fact, only worn one time…on Halloween.
Kid Nation‘s Queen of Bonanza City: Laurel McGoff – The T-Shirt
For those of you who don’t know what Kid Nation is, it was a CBS reality show circa 2007 that took a bunch of kids, divided them into four teams and dropped them onto the Bonanza Creek Movie Ranch then told them to “create a functioning society” in the old west, all by their lonesome
It. Was. Awesome!!
Here we have 40 kids (ages 8-15) set in front of cameras and told to prove to the world that just because you’re kids, doesn’t mean you’re douchebags. And you know what? They did...for the most part. Taylor (the girl from the video in that link you didn’t click on) is probably a lovely girl in real life, but even a kid-centric reality show needs a villain and where there’s a villain, there’s a hero. Enter Laurel McGoff. Laurel was my hero. She was pure awesomesauce and I loved her.
So I did what any fan of a little watched and pretty much hated reality show would do and dressed up as Laurel for Halloween.
Where did I gets it? Everything needed to make that tee was purchased at Michaels. Green t-shirt, iron-on letters and whatever the hell I used to make the white “name tag” part.
Why is this t-shirt awesome? Because no one else on the planet save for Laurel herself has one. (probably)
Why do I have it? I feel this question has an obvious answer and will instead ask…
Why is this T4T worthy? Because I needed a green t-shirt for the St. Patrick’s Day Edition of Tee For Tuesdays and I love an excuse to talk about TV shows no one watched, to show off old Halloween costumes that I thought were totally genius and to show people this picture:
Let’s close out this Tuesday’s post with a song, shall we?
