Look at this shirt! It has both an octopus and a mustache. There you go. Don’t say I never did anything for you.

(Are mustaches on things still cool? Oh god I don’t know)

In other news, you can get half off shirts today on Zazzle by clicking this link or using the code HALFOFFSHIRT. Me, I got another Hawkeye shirt, only this time on a wicking sports shirt so I can wear it hiking and not die in the heat. When I was marathoning, they told us to go out and definitely get a wicking shirt and never wear cotton so I did. I had never actually tried to do anything super stressful in Virginia heat in a cotton t-shirt until recently and omg. Yeah, don’t do that. GIVE ME ALL OF THE ADVANCED FIBER TECHNOLOGY.

I tweeted to the artist to see if it’s the same dog, but I don’t know if I’ll get a reply. They seem to be one of those Zazzlers that just uses their Twitter accounts for endless promotion, not actual communication with people. (A pet peeve of mine.) If I find out more, I’ll update!
