Things That Annoy Snotsnit Issue 6: Don’t Be Hatin’ On My Geeky T-Shirts!
Hey Ogeeku! What’s up? It’s been a while since something last annoyed me; but wouldn’t you know it, life never ceases to annoy this sensitive and emotional human catalyst for geekery.
So you must be wondering, “Dude/Snotsnit/Michael what could you possibly be annoyed about this time? Haven’t you been annoyed by like everything?” To the person who wonders that I say “I LAUGH IN YOUR FACE DUE TO HOW COMPLETELY WRONG YOU ARE!” Thus, welcome to issue 6 of “Things That Annoy Snotsnit”.
I have quite the growing collection of t-shirts, specifically geeky t-shirts. Many of these shirts contain references that other people (specifically older people and non-nerds) find just plain confusing, many ask me to explain the reference. Anyone who has had to do this before knows how annoying/hard/frustrating this task is. These people almost take offense to the fact that I wore this “bumper sticker for my torso” that they fail to understand.
It’s not my fault there’s so many good looking geeky t-shirts out there! I have to buy one after another after another after OH MY G-D LOOK AT THIS T-SHIRT
I HAVE TO HAVE THAT SHIRT!
But seriously, this is what I go through ALL THE FREAKING TIME; I see a shirt and say to myself “Oh G-d that’s beautiful. It’s like a young virgin waiting to be touched” and then I go “Wow that’s creepy, I just hit a new low”. Next thing I know, T-SHIRT HAS BEEN PURCHASED. WTF just happened? Did I blank out and “sleep purchase”? Who cares? I HAVE A NEW T-SHIRT!
Oh, but then the backlash rears its naughty, yet quite repetitive by now, head. “Don’t you have any normal shirts?” they ask. “Maybe I wouldn’t need any ‘abnormal’ shirts if your FACE was normal!” Oh yeah they’ve just been anti-burned, anti-burned being that event when someone comes back with a attempted burn that fails so badly they feel guilty for having been there receiving it; MIND GAMES MOFOS! I then counter with “I have normal shirts, I just choose not to wear them as much because most are slightly ill fitting and unflattering. They make me look fat” *sobs*; then they console you, LOOK AT ME I’M A CHICK MAGNET BABY! Oh G-d this article is getting out of hand.
When people hate on my geeky shirts it really does upset me that I’m “not supposed to” express my individuality. Let me wear my shirts! It’s better than me being topless, unless you’re a lady with low self-esteem, then I say “why hello there”.
I just really love geeky shirts, they show the best side of my personality, and as much as I joke about it, they really are a good magnet to attract mates. My closet is getting a bit too large, but I think it might be able to take a Star Fox shirt.
