I'd Rather Go Naked Than Wear Wolf

These shirts (the entire wall of them) can be found at the Iowa 80 truck stop in Walcott, Iowa. Frankly, I don't know why anyone would want to wear a wolf (or three), bison or Indians on their shirt, especially ones that are so incredibly tasteless, but there is obviously quite a market for them since this wall is ALWAYS stocked. And it's not the only crap of its kind that they sell here; they also have women's purses, hats and jackets with the same artwork.

Some of you may be aware of the
Three Wolf Shirt phenomenon that sparked a bevy of comments on the Amazon.com site. Although it was all in good fun, the shirt itself is actually a big seller, so there are people out there wearing it. I believe the people who buy these must a) have a mullet, b) live in a trailer and c) watch NASCAR on a regular basis. They probably even have a favorite driver.

I don't know how long I'll be driving a truck, but I will bet my life earnings on the fact that you'll NEVER see me in one of those t-shirts. You know the I'd Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur campaign from PETA?

Well, I'd wear wolf fur before I wore one of those.

They are hugely popular in the Pacific Northwest. I don't know if it is because of the outdoorsy stuff or all the tribes, but they are BIG. Personally, they make me itch.

and d) their old black AC/DC concert t-shirt with the sleeves torn off and the grease stains on the front, is just not cutting it at the local Hooters anymore!

I know a couple 18 year old guys who wear these kind of shirts.. not all the time, but they do.

They're the kind of guys that wear the Ray-Ban sunglasses and skinny jeans and big shoes.

Like.. this: http://photos-f.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc1/hs115.snc1/4960_233823190456_579955456_7448163_3711973_n.jpg

Personally I don't think it looks bad on them at all.

I totally agree, those awful shirts are in truck stops everywhere. I would not be caught dead in one of them.

Evil Pixie: Yes, they probably are a NW thing but I can tell you they are EVERYWHERE - like a plague.

Gdiesels: Yep - option "D" also works.

Gil: Just two. LOL

Kaylalala: Well, they're only 18...they'll eventually learn what kind of clothing is deemed acceptable. As for the skinny jeans....those, (on guys especially) are just DISGUSTING. They're about as stupid as the sideswept hair and the big shoes. WTF are they thinking???

Lipstick: I know! It's like a weirdo trucking phenomenon. We have to put a stop to it!
