Not To Be Trusted With Knives

{December 4, 2008}   R.I.P. Torsopants

Yesterday, I received an email telling me about the untimely demise of Torsopants:

It is with great sadness that I announce, at the urging of Bilderberg, that I am closing the doors at at midnight December 23rd, 2008. I cannot get into complete details, but my higher masters have told me that my mission will be changing over the next few months and this is the first step in a series of movements I will make in my life to fulfill the prophecy that is Sunshine Megatron.1

This is very sad, as Torsopants is where I purchased one of my most favourite shirts:

Oh, those were happy times, before my beloved T-shirt’s homeland was on the brink of death.  Poor T-shirt.

Now I’m trying to decide if I should buy this one2 before the 23rd:


Or possible this one:

with this arrow

Or this one:

words on a shirt

1For the record, they always say weird stuff like that in their emails. The fish.
2It’s funny because you have to look it up in the dictionary.

“Words on a Shirt” is definitely the best. And I’m proud to say that I didn’t have to look up ‘solipsistic’. That one Philosophy of Religion course I took at university has finally paid off.

Beth says:

I spent all my philosophy credits on critical thinking and biomedical ethics. So “solipsistic” required a dictionary for me. And then I laughed and laughed.

Sarah says:

I, too, love “Words on a Shirt”. Early holiday present to yourself, perhaps?

Rebecca says:

I admit, I had to look up “solipsistic” as well. And also laughed and laughed!

Kelly says:

The shirt you are wearing is freaking amazing. Me want.

Geo says:

I am very sad to hear of this as well; I have “Words on a shirt” and my favorite; “Pancakes”…Where will we go for our non-sequitor wear now?

Chris says:

I am sad that Words On A Shirt is no longer available. 😦

However, This Is Awesome and I Am Not A Duck still are. Were, if I ordered the last one of either.

I got my order in…

I told you so will be here first part of next week.

[…] ya. So I was pretty sure that “Beth” was referring to me.  Because I *did* blog about how upset I was over the demise of Torsopants.  And if you Google Torsopants, I am the sixth hit.  And then I […]

Rachel says:

That has to be the best t-shirt ever. I am so sad to hear the company is no longer in business.

Enjoying your blog.

Beth says:

Actually, it turned out to be a prank. They moved Torsopants over to T-shirt Hell, then said T-shirt Hell was closing… but it was just a stunt to get people to buy more shirts!
