Hey Look! Overpriced Crap!

You may have noticed… oh, you didn’t? OK, well, move your eyes over to the right side of the screen. There. Yep, now, below the book cover… almost… there you go! By now you’ve seen the picture of a t-shirt on the right side there. That’s right! You now have the opportunity to purchase the EXACT SAME SHIRT worn by the protagonist of Waiting on the Dead: A Zombie Survivor’s Story. You too can pretend to be a server at Raphaelo’s, just like the guy in that book you haven’t read because it’s not finished yet. WHAT MORE COULD YOU WANT? On the pocket you have the name of the restaurant and in fine print below the name of the book. On the back the restaurant’s slogan – OUR FOOD IS OFFAL – is prominently displayed with the full book title in fine print below. And it comes in a multitude of colors like black! And black! Or even black!

How awesome is that?! It’s what all the cool kids some people I’m wearing! Well, and my wife, because I bought her one. That’s right! It comes in a fashionable v-neck for the ladies! What are you waiting for?! Besides dementia, incipient lottery winnings, the urge to waste your hard-won money, the book to actually come out, the loss of good taste, anything else in the world remotely worth spending money on, a relative that you hate and want to give a useless gift to, or a million other reasons?! Oh. OK. That makes sense, then.

From Waiting on the Dead:

There was a lot of grumpy sullenness as we took our new uniform shirts: tight black tees that said “Our Food is Offal” across the back. Let me tell you, it was seriously offal. It smelled offal, tasted offal, looked offal, and was offally expensive.

    • Heh. I am pleased. I wish they weren’t so pricey, but apparently double-sided printing makes them expensive. Pity.

    • Hahaha I have to admit I crack up everytime I look at it. If I had the money, I’d open the restaurant myself just to make people wear them.

  1. Shouldn’t it be the Official “waiting on, Waiting on the Dead” t-shirt?

  2. Got me mine. Awesome!

  3. Dude, this cracks me up. Thinking it might be a good holiday gift for Resident Geek, who ADORES zombies. Kickass!

    • Hahahahaha that’s awesome. I’m thinking about a white one covered with bloodstains. Not strictly canon, of course, but the black would hide the gore too much.
