Last December, I gave my friend Courtney a custom t-shirt that said "Is that your stuff?" It is an inside joke between us about how she left a banana peel in the gutter in front of my neighbor's house, and my neighbor came outside to confront by her saying, "Is that your stuff?" It was such an awkward, hilarious situation. (Here's a photo of the shirt.)
Then of course another inside joke came around. An episode of This American Life called I Was So High (Act 2) talks about interesting things that happen while people were on drugs. While listening to this podcast together, we busted up laughing when a young man expressed that he wrote poems while high. His poem has become one of my favorite pieces of work.
"What if you were a cat
and all you could say is 'meow?'
All you'd have to talk about is
Then Courtney gave me a shirt with the poem on it!
Then I decided to keep this going (for her birthday). (Now inside joke shirts are an inside joke!) A film we both really love is When Harry Met Sally. Like, a lot. We talk about it all the time and even call Billy Crystal, Billy. Ha. One of our favorite lines to quote among many is,
"Waiter, there is too much pepper on my paprikash.
But I would be proud to partake of your pecan piiie."
- Harry Burns
Here's a video of the line, it's silly. (Spoiler alert after the 41st second!)
So we'll see how long this inside joke of inside joke shirts will continue. ;)
What do you think?
P.S. - We made these shirts on Zazzle.com!
