Another shirt, another typo

The correct quotation is, "There is a crack, a crack in everything. That's how the light gets in."

I guess this limited edition is worth even more now due to the error

The quote actually appears both ways in common usage. But it does appear to originate from the "Anthem" by L. Cohen, which has the refrain:

"Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack, a crack in everything
That's how the light gets in"

Not to mention the oldy, but goody:

Feed the man a fish and he will not be hungry for a day,
Teach him how to fish, and he will never go hungry again...

Of course, Good Old one replaced fish with crack. But what the heck, he was bang on the point when he said that...

OH NO.........you bastards aint gonna pin this one on me .

There was quite a discussion as to how that phrase should be written.

It is a bastardization of the two most common ways, kinda.
Anyway, it's deltas fault .

Sure, blame the guy the farthest away!

I would simply say, that the way it's worded still "works" for the "thought" we are attempting to convey.

Medium, Large and Extra Large for a bunch of guys that sit in front of computers 25-30 hours a day?

Me thinks this might be an early April Fool's gag.

People who sit still all the time tend to populate both ends of the weight bell curve, depending on how much/healthy they eat, i.e. getting thin is not the only option. But I agree that "small" would be a reasonable size option too.

Errrrrrrrr..............

Strange, when I found the duffel bag with the old style shirts in it,
most of them were mediums.

And I only bought mediums after some people bitched that not everyone who sits in front of a screen are fat.
So some of you not telling the truth about your size .

Mediums are fairly small in size. Do I need to "model" these for you all to get an idea of the size?


Wait, I shall find a chart that converts USA sizes to Europe.

Hey Woody:

On a only somewhat related note. The picture of the Woodmann.com side of the shirt, when clicked, shows the jpeg of the "There is a crack in everything" shirt. Didn't have time to try to figure out what was going on.

Back to work for a bit.
