You know that uber awesome shirt you have that’s really extra large? A great deal of you spooks probably listen to bands, and wear shirts, so it’s quite likely that the shirt in question is in fact a band shirt. Either that, or it’s Sonic the Hedgehog merch you bought at the latest Con. Do not contradict me, I am correct. Notice how people size these shirts to fit rectangles.
