Ask DB1: “Ironic” Tees

———–

Hey Boss,

Do you think the whole “ironic” T-shirt thing is douche?

I mean like 25 year olds wearing Led Zepplin or Ramones shirts or these same a-holes wearing Reeses peanut butter Cup shirts or Luck Charms shirts.

Now I realize that some of them may actually like these bands or foods but I can’t help but laugh my ass off when one of these gherkin yodelers can’t name one song from the band or tell you that their mommy wouldn’t let them eat sweets when they were young. Should we include this in douche behavior?

Best,
– Doc Bunsen

Irony, in and of itself, is not douchey, or else Letterman would be called ‘bag.

However, herpsterism is.

Does it say hooters on the guys shirt?

There’s nothing wrong with his shirt. I love being awesome, too.

Sweet! : Purple dress jilted-recently-divorced-and-bi-curious soccer mom is going to bash this fuccer’s teeth out the back of his head.

You go, girl! Tear his balls off, too:

@VIn
Good call on “Bobby Brown”, seeing that Halloween is coming up I needs to start cranking “Goblin Girl”.

11:54 am October, 25 Douche Wayne said...

This shirt would only be ironic if this guy wasn’t awesome, which he clearly is.

Next topic: sarcasm.

I must disagree with Dr. Bunsen. The more people who skateboard, smoke dope, drink, be cool, and remind me of my youth the better. Frayed jean shorts is where I fucking draw the line. No one will ever be as cool as I was in my tight short jean shorts 30 years ago except maybe the Fonz or Barbarino.

Sit back with your sweet buzz and listen to this one. If I saw a kid with this dudes t-shirt he would have to get it.

Do not listen unless you like music or your father had facial hair in the 70’s man. Wake up Dr. the future is now and the

pic sort of reminds me of McConnaghy’s Dazed and Confused character, which i was just told, came out seventeen years ago (1993), and took place 17 years prior to that (1976).
.
well, whoever told me that apparently doesn’t do math so good- maybe made in 93, released in 94? That might be right. So, what was a douchebag like in 94, as Affleck was clearly the predominant douche in the movie, even though he dressed like everyone else.

when did Greico virus first get released???

^then. Forgot something.

Nice tits and Jonesy is correct.

The t-shirts themselves aren’t AutoDouche, but this guy is. And I love bi-curious soccer moms.

12:40 pm October, 25 Douche Springsteen said...

It isn’t ironic to wear a shirt of a band that you aren’t familiar with. It’s just appropriating their “cool”-ness to an extent I suppose. Kinda stupid, sure, but not auto-douche.

That video of Elizabeth Masucci reminds me of all the girls I knew in high school. They wouldn’t let me see their tits either. They were a lot uglier, though.

Dem girls are a bit horsey.

@ Vin
David Garibaldi is the reason I started playing the drums.
“What Is Hip” is on my all-time favorites list.
Also, the answer to “What Is Hip” cannot be found in the photo above.

@ Wedgie

At the many, many T.O.P shows I’ve seen I’ve found that regardless of all the incredible shit going on up on stage I can’t stop watching Garibaldi. He’s the most mezmerizing performer in a band full of the Navy Seals of musicians

Isn’t “Gherkin Yodelers” DarkSock’s latest band?

what’s ironic is his haircut!

my ‘Art & Beer’ T from Todos Santos is among my favorites…tho also partial to Guiness…not the t-shirts…the beer!

Not sure. I’ve lost count after “Hissing Fetus” hit it big with their last chart-topping single “Slurp, Plop, Gurgle”.

@ Vin:
Plus, he had that righteous afro in the ’70’s, when I first heard them. Sweet.

Note To All:
Is there a list of classic phrases from HCwDB somewhere? ie: Gherkin Yodelers; Viking Yogurt Rodeo, etc. because if there isn’t, there should be.
Funny Fuccers.

Does any display of, or affinity to, irony merit auto-herpster status?

If not, then what stage of irony fetish merits auto-herp?

Letterman is a ‘bag. But not because he’s being ironic or anything. Sometimes a thing just is.

And Letterman is a ‘bag.
