T-Shirt History & What The Wizard Of Oz Had To Do With It

August 24, 2007

THE WIZARD OF OZ: A HISTORY OF HOW PRINTED T-SHIRTS BECAME POPULAR IN AMERICA

The producers and promoters of the 1939 movie classic “Wizard Of Oz” knew before it was even released they may just have a classic on their hands. So for the first time in the history of America, a movie was promoted on a T-Shirt in addition to the traditional box office posters. The tees were as big a hit as the movie, yet nobody is quite sure who came up with the idea.

Since that time there have been other milestones that have boosted the sale of printed T-shirts. Farah Fawcett in Charlie’s Angels sold millions of tees during her stint on that program.

Millions of Americans are tee shirt collectors; over 63% say they have a “favorite tee shirt” and it is not unusual for the average American to own from ten to thirty printed design tees. But it is hardly an American phenomena. Today, over two billion tee shirts are sold worldwide.

Cartoonist Rick London has made his own parody remake of a “Wizard Of Oz” cartoon tee which shows Toto lifting his leg on the way to Oz. The caption reads “How The Yellow Brick Road Got It’s Name”. It was one of London’s early Londons Times “Panel Hollywood” classic panel cartoons. He likes to call the panel cartoon “The Wiz Of Oz”.

He also sells them on his website www.ricklondonwear.com in the television and movies section of his site. It is one of his more popular selling images which he also manufactures and ships worldwide on mousepads, totebags, cutting boards, mens women’s and kids tops aprons, and other gifts and collectibles.

Sperm 101 Too Racy For Princeton Freshmen Nursing Students

August 22, 2007

In what appear to be a mass-debate that could last for more than a semester, the new  Dean Of Nursing at Princeton has called together a committee to ban the name of a class on fertilization and maternity called “Sperm 101”.  The man who coined the phrase, Max Handsnpockets says, “It really sounded more interesting and I believe would attract more students than, say, Fertilization 101 or Shmegma 101.”

Many students agreed and signed up for the course.

Cartoonist Rick London, of Londons Times Cartoons and Rick Londonwear http://www.ricklondonwear.com, who admittedly fabricated the above story says, “You can get people’s attention in only a few ways, and some words draw attention.  And of course one of them is…………Princeton.”

London sells the Sperm101 cartoon collectibles with the cartoon image on such products as tshirts, aprons, mousepads, tote bags, cutting boards, coasters and clothing at his Rick Londonwear store.

August 21, 2007

In possibly one of the most bizarre events in bovine history, a man from Pascagoula, Ms, Elmer Krud says he seriously witnessed four cows on the outskirts of New Orleans “headin’ towards Slidell, stickin’ pins in a little butcher doll”.   Cowincidentally, Krud is the first cousin and husband of Selma Krud, the woman who, in the early 1960’s swore she was abducted by aliens on the outskirts of Pascagoula, Ms.   Fox News has  noted that it is a rarity for cows to perform moo doo rituals (even in that part of the country).

Cartoonist Rick London says, though he made the whole story up, it worked very well for the his Moo Doo Cow Ritual cartoon products only available at Rick Londonwear at http://www.ricklondonwear.com.

Eastabutchie, Ms Running Of The Bullfrogs Gaining World Attention

August 20, 2007

Running Of The Bullfrogs

Former native Mississippian cartoonist Rick London, of Rick Londonwear http://www.ricklondonwear.com says finally memorabilia is avaialble for the exciting virtually uncovered media event in Eastabutchie, Ms “The Running Of The Bullfrogs”.

London says, “If more people knew of this phenomenal event, where, not one bullfrog is killed or injured, it would make Eastabutchie, possibly one of the 8 Wonders of the World.

London says, “To me, and most southern Mississippians, Eastabutchie is already one of the Eight Wonders Of the World, and possibly the Center Of The Universe. It merely takes some more time to figure it out. I believe with the evolution of the Internet, and the fact that we are selling these Running Of The Bullfrog products, more and more people who are interested in our society and current events will eventually come around and yell the predictable cry “Hail To Eastabutchie…How Did We Ever Make It Without You??”
