The Influence of Jon Bois on the 40th Birthday T-Shirt Industry

Jon Bois is a genius. In three years, he will be a household name to vast swaths of American men who love to watch sports-related programming on television. Please bookmark this post and revisit it in 2022.

Was this prediction accurate? What’s the world like in 2022? Did Jared Kushner finally bring peace to the Middle East? Or is he in prison?

Back to Jon Bois. You might know his work from Chart Party, a series of videos from SB Nation which dive deep into data and sports.

The graphics are incredible. The music is even better. If you like sexy, sexy saxophones then you’ll love Chart Party.

He’s also very popular on Twitter. Recently, he tweeted:

by the time i’m 40 i pledge to:

– refer to all video games as “mario games”
– refer to everything on tv as a “show” including movies/sports
– use “spam” and “scam” interchangeably
– download a coupon app on my phone called WalletMunkey or something and never shut up about it— Jon Bois (@jon_bois)

February 15, 2019

Later, he followed that tweet with this one:

this tweet turned out to be pretty popular! in celebration, i’ve decided to release it into the public domain. this means you’re free to screencap it, crop out my name, post it to instagram, whatever you’d like to do. it belongs to all of us now— Jon Bois (@jon_bois)

February 16, 2019

We honestly couldn’t tell if he was joking or not, but we thought both tweets were very funny.

Releasing it to the public domain meant that anyone could take it, remix it, or use it however they want.

We just so happen to sell 40th Birthday T-Shirts, so it’s a perfect fit for your old friends at FunnyShirts.org.

We immediately took his text and turned it into a 40th Birthday Pledge Tee:

Here’s a fun thing about us: our design center helps us create designs super quickly. We noticed Jon’s tweet within an hour. We posted our reply with a link to this shirt within an hour and five minutes.

We had to decide which bits to include and which to leave off. We eventually had to edit out “refer to everything on tv as a show”. This felt sad, but good new folks: this design is totally customizable.

If you want to add that part back in, you can! You can make the text say whatever you want. Just follow the link and then hit that customize button.

Add a name. Add an inside joke. Personalize the hell out of it.

We’re hoping this leads to an avalanche of other twitter users posting hilarious content related to the age of 40, and then immediately releasing those tweets into the public domain. We’re holding our breath!

This post serves as big Thank You to Jon Bois. And since we’re already getting greedy, let’s ask for one more thing: will you please revisit the math behind the Surrender Index from The Saddest Punt in the World?

We think more weight should be given to teams that are down by 7 – 16 points, where the game is still theoretically in reach. If you’re down by two scores, but you’re in desperation mode, and you punt it away, then that’s just garbage. It looks like Chris Kluwe has already reached out to you about this.

Thanks again.

The Size Of This Lad Sweatshirt

In Awe at the Size of this Lad: Shirts and Tanks for Absolute Units

If you’ve ever looked into the mirror and felt pure awe at the size of the lad standing before you, then perhaps you’ve come to the right place.

Are you an absolute unit? Do you know someone who is? Does their torso ever get cold?

Finally, a product to solve all of your problems. Actually, several products:

Absolute Unit Tees, Tanks, Hats, and Sweatshirts are now for sale at FunnyShirts.org.


.

A Bit of Background

The phrase first came to the public’s attention thanks to @mrreptoid’s tweet on Dec 13, 2017:


.


.

It was a series of photos showing the Queen of England getting into a car. He quickly concluded that this man should become King and we couldn’t agree more.


.


.

The meme started to spread when it was used by one of our favorite follows on twitter, David Roth:


.


.

Of course, you know David Roth’s work on Twitter thanks to his invention of “The Ratio”. When someone tweets badly, they will start to get many more replies than retweets or favs. The ratio will tend to resemble the batting statistics from baseball stars of yesteryear. For example, the Adam Dunn classic: a .198 batting average with 34 home runs and 83 RBI. That’s a bad tweet.

But today we’re talking about good tweets. In the case of David’s tweet above, he is using the Absolute Unit meme to call attention to one of the Koch children.

We don’t normally support being in awe at the size of this lad for purposes of mocking, but we can’t help but agree with David on this one.


.

In Conclusion

We love this meme and that’s why we made t-shirts.

Friday Funnies

Friday Funnies- SHIA LABEOUF IS NOT FAMOUS ANYMORE

Shia LaBeouf
After an embarrassing Cease & Desist was ordered to actor Shia LaBeouf on plagiarism charges he has been in a very awkward downward spiral.

The child-star actor tweeted pictures of the Cease & Desist order and then continued to tweet “I AM NOT FAMOUS ANYMORE” over and over again.

I Am Not Famous Anymore

LaBeouf then hired skywriters to issue an airborne public apology on New Year’s Day 2014 to the comic book writer he apparently ripped off.

Following this public breakdown, the actor was reportedly very offended by a dig Jim Carrey made while hosting the Golden Globes last month. And proclaimed, yet again via Twitter, that he was “retiring from all public life.”

But, wait! There’s more!

While walking a red carpet for LaBeouf’s upcoming movie, “Nymphomaniac,” the actor donned a brown paper bag over his head. Across the bag (and face) was written none other than, “I AM NOT FAMOUS ANYMORE.”

And finally, while in Berlin for a press conference the actor answers a question from the audience with a response about seagulls searching for sardines.

LaBeouf claims that all of this bad press and strange behavior are the result of his latest “performance art.” Or *cough* drugs.

Funniest Super Bowl Commercials of 2014

Top Five Funniest Super Bowl Commercials of 2014

With the game being pretty much over by halftime yesterday, we relied heavily on this year’s Super Bowl commercials to entertain us for the rest of the night; and compared to years in the past, this year’s commercials were a little bit of a let down in the funny department. When it comes to the Super Bowl’s commercials, companies usually don’t hold back. They push the envelope by playing with our emotions to get us to remember them by either creating a commercial that shocks us, makes us laugh or pulls at our heart strings. Even though the funny commercials were lacking this year, there were a few that deserve recognition, including a few companies that make this list every year.

Here are the top five commercials from Super Bowl XLVIII

1.     Doritos – Time machine

 

2.     GoDaddy – Spray tan

 

3.     Heinz Ketchup – Hum

 

4.     Radio Shack – The 80’s called

 

5.     Volkswagen – German engineers get their wings

 

Did we miss a Super Bowl commercial that should have made the list?
