LEAVE A COMMENT if you know what (if anything) my t-shirt means or represents. What is it? What is it trying to say to strangers, kin, police officers, children?

What will my torso say to people I pass? (If anything.)

There's a Face. Say something about that.

Three Words. Each is a valid legal kosher halal even nice polite positive word.

There's a shitload of a gazillion colored little spheres. Somebody wake Amy.

Put them all together, and they tell the world: 

What's going on on my public torso in a day or two? What's going on on your public torso in a day or two if you print this out and take it to Paradise Copies, Northampton MA USA and give the clerk some money, and come back the next day and you got a wonderful new t-shirt. (Once or twice I've put it on in the parking lot. I couldn't wait till I got home.)

But making a new t-shirt at Paradise Copies in Northampton (a big heavy fancy smart college/university town with much disposable income) is just goddam fun.

Reductions, Enlargements, you punch in the percentage change you want.

Everything in Northampton, Massachusetts is called Paradise. Paradise Pizza. Paradise Prosthetics. (We have a lot of military veterans because of the Veterans hospital and the USA's longest-ever wars.) Paradise Septic Service. Because [Wikipedia]

In 1851 opera singer Jenny Lind, the "Swedish Nightingale", declared [at the Academy of Music, still there, box office opens at noon] Northampton to be the "Paradise of America", from which Northampton took its nickname The Paradise City.

Chef on South Park tells the kids:

"Boys, there's a time and a place for everything. It's called college."

The Dutch Power Cows are Dutch cows which run very fast and produce milk for delicious cheese on powerful engines (made by Philips in Lightbulbville).
