Camel Shirt

[ #13680 ]
I accidentally wore my Perl Camel shirt out this evening. I usually don't because I don't feel like explaining it to people.

The waitress at the restaurant was puzzled, but the Cashier at Target just said "Thinkgeek?"

Dunno what to make of that...

  • When I wore mine to dinner with friends a few months ago, I had a conversation I had with their 10-year-old son. It went something like this.

    Kid: What does that say on the front of your shirt?
    Me: Um, it's the beginning of a program. That first part's a shebang.
    Kid: A what?
    Me: A shebang.
    Kid: (thinks for a few seconds) That's cool.
    Considering the source, I thought that was high praise.
  • You two are lucky. I never get any inquiries for my geek shirts, and that's why I wear them! (Except that they're mostly all I own, I go clothes shopping at conferences. Mad props to the first company that gives away shorts!)

    • That's one reason I miss the boom era -- I collected enough t-shirts to clothe me for a month.

      I actually did just find an unopened vacuum-packed shirt disk, which turned out to be for "ePanacea." It's the darndest thing, but they seem to be out of business now... ;)

      I also found an Enron CD holder -- I'm keeping that baby forever.

    • It's not shorts, but it's close. By far and away the geekiest piece of clothing I have is a pair of boxers I got for free that say "Google" and "I'm feeling lucky!" on the front.
