Initially, I wasn’t going to address it here because (a) I’d already done so somewhat laboriously on Facebook and (b) the last thing this weblog really needs is another obstreperous, vein-popping screed from me about t-shirts. As fate had it, however, the story built up steam and the next thing I knew, folks at my job were asking me to whip up a little something on it. So, I collected my thoughts, subtracted HUGE ANGRY SWATHES OF RAGE from them, and wrote what I considered to be a fairly straight account of the whole kerfuffle. So, if you really want to re-live the whole DISNEY RIPPED OFF JOY DIVISION’S UNKNOWN PLEASURES FOR A T-SHIRT saga, click right here to read my take on it for TODAY.com’s style blog, The Look. Also, let’s face it – I’m an attention whore, and want you to read everything I write. Humor me.
Depressingly, the shirt is no longer available (well, you can find it for stupid amounts of money eBay). I’m actually going to DisneyWorld (god help me) in February, and had been planning on picking one up. Oh well.
