That, I'll have you know, is a prize-winning shirt:  It won a prize in
the tacky-shirt competition at Conolulu (http://www.maui.net/~tropo/).

I found it in the darkest, most forgotten corner of the clearance room
at Hilo Hattie's factory outlet.  It sat there, pulsating at me,
beckoning to be bought on a dare.
