to play football, not to play trumpet
For Hard Gay avatar. Politically correct is not in Japan's dictionary.
You have forced me to lose all my pride in Michigan. First the RR scandal and now a t-shirt scandal.
Your tagline: If you're not here to talk Michigan, go to Ohio.
Dude, *this* is "talking Michigan"?
This sort of crap makes me miss the Haloscan era. Thank god it's less than a month to kick off...
I think its hysterical, it points out exactly how stupid the "Ann Arbor is a Whore" is while at the same time showing off our subtle superiority through demonstrating our ability to describe "whore" in other words.
This is exactly why the shirt is lame.
It's too cute by half without actually being clever, and it reads exactly like someone who wants to say "hey look I have a big enough vocabulary to say whore in other words." This shirt reads 'I was designed by someone who enjoys puns, especially when someone in the room doesn't get them. Tee hee.'
Really a terrible, dorky (and not in a good way) shirt.
Hating on puns? Really? Where do you think you are?
Since when are puns standard on MGoBlog? Brian's very clever and funny as a writer, but I don't recall him busting out puns very often.
Look, I'm a humanities PhD. I get legitimately excited reading about law reform in British India. I'm as dorky as they come. But this shirt is bad dorky. Dorky without funny. Evil dorky.
I will go to my grave believing that, good sir!
I agree. I always thought "Ann Arbor is A Whore" was so childish. I feel like our version causes Sparty heads to explode as they try and comprehend exactly what it means.
It's really not that clever. Most MSU students would probably get it, but think it was stupid, IME.
Its a joke on how dumb and lazy "Ann Arbor is a whore" sounds. Its also poking fun at ourselves with the elevated phrasing as Michigan fans are known as a "wine and cheese" crowd. Its my favorite shirt on the Mgostore.
You, sir, are a moron.
Blue Blue Blue is a man of questionable intelligence.

Not dumb. Next question.
Madison is definitely a whore though
Ashley Madison? She gets around. Likes married guys most of all.
What did you want it to say? East Lansing is a directional sword fighting event??? It doesn't matter, because Spartans won't get either phrase.
However, "East Lansing durpty durr gurgle shnarf" might enrage them.
Now this is FUNNY!
To "Smells Like Teen Spirit", haven't you?
Make it sound gross with "East Lansing is a Directional Pole Jabbing Event With Horses"
The only thing dumb about the shirt is that an East Lansing woman is not negotiable in price. Seriously, have you ever hooked up with a Spartan? You always pay $5 for a beer cup at the door, and then you pretty much get to choose whatever woman you want. That fee is more flat than Claire Danes was in "My So Called Breasts."
You are the Celebrity Jeopardy Sean Connery of MGoPoints! I am thoroughly impressed...
Wow bouje, what happened this time?
...but I don't recall any fireworks that caused this.
He must have used one of the banned words or phrases of negbang doom. I dare not speak them.
My guess is the forbidden MSU-mascot-related term. Ouch.
EDIT: Not so!
Maybe old points expired and he had a huge pos-bang at this time last year?
I think that's spot on; I remember him having a massive surplus at one point.
Interestingly enough he's back to normal, which renders this entire subthread moot (but that doesn't mean we won't continue on it, of course).
I figured it would fix itself.
You talk about the MGoStore as if you have ownership in it. Why don't you just remove the shirt yourself?
You see our T-shirt uses multi-syllabic words to express the same thought as the Spartan version, thus highlighting our superior command of the English language when compared to our Spartan brethren. It's subtle humor....apparently too subtle for some people to grasp.
Thank god practice starts today.....
I totally agree with your assessment...almost. I nearly threw up in my mouth when you referred to sparty as merely brethren. That would imply that they are equals. They are not. The correct term is "little spartan brethren" or "hermano menor".
Other than that you are a gentleman and a scholar.
I don't know, East Lansing could be a stage name.
how dumb is the "East Lansing is a woman of negotiable affection" t shirt advertised on our home page
Yeah well your face is dumb.
say that a "real Wolverine" wouldn't bother poking fun at MSU because "they're just not worth it" and then offer advice on how to annoy " the hell out of them?"
is a real wolverine analogous to 'true yankee?'
Thanks, Blue Blue Blue, for giving me a good laugh to start the day. I've always liked the "East Lansing is... " shirt, but thanks to your comments, I will now appreciate it that much more.
jesus tapdancing christ in a handbasket, what prompted you to post this?!
Bummed! Bummed, I tell ya!
It's the funniest Michigan shirt I've ever seen. How miserable are you that you complain about a shirt you don't like? Just don't buy it if you hate it that much.
its sort of like laughing at your own fart because nobody else heard/smelt it.
i actually used the "woman of negotiable affection" line as a euphemism with one of my co-workers and he cracked up at it. He did his undergrad at MSU, but redeemed himself by getting his master's at Cornell.
That's one heckuva change in atmosphere!
THAT MAKES BUCKY LOOK GAY! BRILLIANT!
because they probably don't understand it. My favorite response to that "Ann Arbor is a whore" shirt though, is one I saw that said "If Ann Arbor is such a whore, how come you didn't get in"
