OT: MGoDecision

Submitted by ldoublee on June 9th, 2010 at 8:24 PM

I'm leaving for Walt Disney World tomorrow with my wife and 20-month old daughter.   I'm packing and as I was picking t-shirts to bring came across one of my favorite fashion items--the "Charlie Weis Should Probably Eat Less" t-shirt.  At first, it made me chuckle (as it always does), but then I got to thinking...should I bring this shirt? 

The message itself still rings as true as ever, and the horrified looks I'll get from politically correct moms will be priceless.  But...is this shirt old news after the vanquishing of the Fupa from South Bend?  Will the picture with Goofy while wearing the shirt be as funny 20 years from now?

As I wrestled with this decision, I figured that I should turn to the mgoblog family for advice.  So...umm..help, please.

I'd put it on the same level as watching the girl who broke your heart get extremely fat. Both will be satisfying for as long as you live.

agree to let the shirt into your suitcase... then, at the last minute, decide you don't want to wear it after all.

I saw an OSU fan wear a F-Michigan shirt (spelled out all the way, not a Muck Fichigan shirt) in San Diego. I was seriously appalled. People that move away are typically less stupid than the average Buckeye and it was in an upscale gym.

Don't do it.

but I don't think a shirt making a suggestion about Charlie Weis' dieting habits and a shirt with the F bomb on it are quite the same.  If the shirt said "Charlie Weis a Fat Piece of Shit", then I would agree, and would never wear it out with my toddler.

or cleaning up the garage or washing the dog. The graphics will gradually fade away into honorable obscurity through use.

I just got back from there.  Got a hat with a block M and Mickey.  The M doesn't stand for Mickey...especially not after I paint it maize (in the next couple of days)

seeing as you will be vacationing among the best slice of glorious americana this great country has to offer, your shirt will hardly be the most noteworthy. i would wear it proudly, and suggest you eat one of those absurdly massive turkey legs, parading around like you own the place. represent us well.

unless, of course, your wife would frown upon such behavior...

It would also depend on your own girth.  If you have any extra pounds on you (like myself), it might seem hypocritical.  If you are fit and in shape, I say go for it.

BTW, you are a brave man to take a 20 month old to WDW.
