…thankfully. Still, I was trying to ignore the meme-bomb that was the Three Wolf Moon t-shirt, until I was going through my collection of shirts (not so much a collection as evidence of a severe addiction that I have recently gotten over cold turkey; I really should apologize to the t-shirt
sellerspushers for doing some serious damage to their business model) and I found my Space Wolf shirt. —>
Obviously, some explanation is needed for this. Yes, that is a dead wolf floating in space, because wolves don’t thrive in a near-vacuum any more than you or I would. But more importantly, this is a dead werewolf, as explained in the very short film from which this design is taken:
Thus proving that (1) mixing rocketship sci-fi and fantasy horror usually just doesn’t work and (2) there is a good reason NASA screens out werewolves from its astronaut training program.
So the Three Wolf Moon Shirt phenomenon can go on without me. I was halfway considering a little PhotoSlop with the design, but Amazon.com’s Customer Images included umpteen pics of “famous people wearing the shirt”, many of which were far more badly done than anything I’d ever expose to the web. But then I came upon what seems to be a real photograph of some dork in THE shirt (another thing the Customer Images make perfectly clear is that the shirt does NOT make you awesome) standing next to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer.
And in the proud journalistic tradition of CNN, Wolf appears to have not the foggiest idea what’s going on.
