I Got $5 On It: Badass Abraham Lincoln

It’s been a while since I’ve featured an Abraham Lincoln T-Shirt. What’s the hell is wrong with me. It’s okay, this is fixed with THIS T-shirt designed by Tim Shumate and available now from Threadless. Say hello to thug Abraham Lincoln, complete with tattoos, ear stretchers, and wife beater. Mary Todd Lincoln would be so proud.

By the way, you all should be ready for the barrage of Abe Lincoln tees over the next few months. Why? New movie coming soon, it’s called Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. If you haven’t read it yet then you’re missing out.

I Got $5 On It is available now from Threadless for $20.

Abe Lincoln and the Intergalactic Civil War

In an alternate universe, Abraham Lincoln would not have been assassinated by John Wilkes Booth while watching Our American Cousin on April 14, 1865 at Ford’s Theater. Then again, if we lived in an alternate universe then maybe Abraham Lincoln could have shot back at Booth with laserbeams coming out of his eye balls while a bear-ish Teddy Roosevelt stomped repeatedly on Booth, making sure that his fur got into the deep crevices of his body.

Lincoln is available now from Jon Wye for $29.

Abe’s Civil War After Party

We’ve seen a lot of Abraham Lincoln themed T-Shirt over the last fews years. I guess it’s his quirky awkwardness that makes him such an appealing T-Shirt subject. Needless to say, there have been some hits and some misses. Abe’s Civil War After Party by Cake & Rockets and is definite hit. It’s not just a hit, it’s freakin’ awesome! It’s reminiscent of the iconic Threadless tee, The Communist Party by Tom Burns. But I’ll go one better and say that it’s even better than that Burn’s classic. How so? I mean come one, we’ve got peeps from the good ol’ US of A. And at the center of the madness is arguably one of the greatest presidents ever, Abraham Lincoln. And did you know that he was also a Vampire Hunter? Hell yeah. I love him even more now knowing that he indulges in beer pong during his down time.

Abe’s Civil War Party by Santiago Sanchez is available now from Cake & Rockets for $19.99.

Land of the Free: Official Threadless TSA Airport Body Scanning T-Shirt

You can always rely on Threadless when it comes to being on top of popular culture, even if it has to do with the newly implemented and controversial TSA airport security guidelines. This shirt seems like it came out of nowhere, I just spotted it a few hours ago on the left sidebar of the Threadless homepage. The T-Shirt was designed by photographer David Vincent Wolf, who, upon closer examination of his Threadless profile just became a member of the popular T-Shirt site less than a week ago.

Interestingly, Gizmodo posted the Land of the Free image seen on the Threadless T-Shirt in a blog post and said:

“Someone should make T-shirts with this image and sell them at airports. With a TSA logo on the back.”

Land of the Free obviously pokes fun at the incredible PR nightmare that is the US Department of Homeland Security’s Transportation Security Administration. Over the last week, there have been countless nightmarish TSA stories that have been spreading online. The stories range from the ability for the new body scanners to save nude photos to the cancer survivor who had a pat down that caused his urostromy (urine) bag to leak and spill all over his pants to the little boy that was stripped and given a pat down.

The stoic image on this T-Shirt sums up this whole messed up situation. Is losing our rights and liberties every time that we travel worth it?

Land of the Free is available now from Threadless for $18.
