Dressed for the part

Five weeks ago, I was reading the Poker Grump's blog. He had an image of a poker tee shirt that was pretty funny. You can see it here.

I remember thinking, just what I need is another tee shirt, but I couldn't resist. When I went to High Hand Designs, I saw they had all kinds of stuff besides tee shirts. They had caps, signs, paintings, posters and other paraphernalia. (They also had similar bowling things, which might appeal to Gadzooks.) Most of the tee shirts are around $16 to $20, although they had a few on clearance sale.

I was about to leave when I saw this: "4 medium shirts - SUPER SALE - Get 4 medium shirts for the price of one. ONLY $16.50." I clicked on it and it took me here. When I read this, I had to laugh (see the two sentences I put in bold):

That's Right! No catch. Four brand new, high quality size medium shirts for only $16.50. We have way too many mediums in stock. We should have scanned the tables during all night ring games at the Rio. Poker players skew to size XXL not size medium.

My order came and last night I wore the shirt you see above. Once when I raised and everyone folded, I stood up and showed them my shirt and said, "Come on, guys. Didn't you read the shirt?" This got a good laugh.

I'm not pimping the High Hand Design site, but it was a good deal. If you are small like me and can wear a medium (or you're female?), check it out.


  1. Funny!

    I found this one to be more for the gambling man, though.


  2. Haven't seen that medium size for some time ... he he.
