Picture of the Week: Bon Voyage

This is a classic from my archives. I came to Korea for the first time in 2009 and found this gem on a t-shirt. I had to buy it and ended up ditching it in Thailand after it got too stained with dirt, sweat, and paint.

The English really blows your mind. It actually hurts if you try to read it and understand it. Take a look at the clocks too. Clocks are pretty universal objects, so I’m not sure how they got so messed up on this t-shirt. First of all these clocks only have 10 digits, one of which is 0. On top of that, the numbers go backwards clockwise. Who made this t-shirt and what were they on?

  1. I don’t think those are clocks. They look like the dials on the power meter attached to a house. Makes the shirt even more incongruous. One imagines some rube who’s maybe seen a wristwatch, but never encountered electric power, somehow got immortalized on a goofy T-shirt.

    Very cool.

    1. oh wow! i never thought of it that way! thanks for the insight uncle rob. i think it makes the shirt even more ridiculous (if that’s even possible!) when you think about it that way 🙂
