when memes collide, we all win

Three Keyboard Cat Moon - Threadless, Best T-shirts Ever

Years from now, our kids are going to ask us about the Wolf Shirt and Keyboard Cat memes and wonder why in the world we cared about them so much. When that day comes, some of us will reach into our dressers, pull out this shirt, and tell our children, "We needed them, so we could have this."

  1. Oh my. I do believe I need that shirt. Good find Sir, Good Find. Wil. I had a thought today while tootiling around town. Did you name your book The Happiest Days of Our Lives after the Pink Floyd song or was that just a happy accident?

  2. I named it after the Pink Floyd song. I suck at coming up with titles, so I name everything after songs that are somehow related to the content of the book or story.

  3. I’m not sure I ever got the cats, I suppose they were somebody’s “Cool Cats”, but the wolf must have spoken to some sort of hopeful warrior archetype – for those of us who were not in the least warrior-like.
    Or maybe not “us”. Just me?

  4. Hahahahahahaha! I have no idea why, but that totally and literally had me laughing out loud. Just as long as it’s not that creepy fucking clown sweater, I’m good.

  5. Hold up on the Years from now, our kids nonsense, Wil. You and Anne are about to become empty-nesters soon, aren’t you? I think what you meant to say is: Years from now, our grand-kids…you get the idea, right?
    Damn you, Wil! How the hell is it that (and here’s where I beat the everloving shit out of the dead horse again) somebody who is only 1 year, 2 months and 2 days older than me can be an empty-nester in the not so distant future?
    OK…got the rant out of my system, and honestly, this is me on my best behavior, take what you can get. lol.
    Cool shirt, BTW. Probably won’t have any grand-kids to show it off to, but definitely grand-nieces and nephews, students, etc.

  6. When I saw this design submission posted on Boing Boing I hoped it would force Threadless to select it. I had no idea it would happen so quick (4 days!!)Now just hoping this will come in a tie dyed long sleeve one day.

  7. Omg. Before this, I didn’t know what the wolf shirt thing was.
    Needless to say, I laughed for a very, very long time. I haven’t laughed that hard in ages…

  8. lulz! I don’t know if it was coincidence, but I was listening to “The Happiest Days of Our Lives” and wondering what happened to my old dice, then tonight I happened on a surprise. Not my dice, but a major AD&D score! I posted it on my blog. There is also a review of “The Happiest Days of Our Lives” one post below. Hope you read them and enjoy them. http://is.gd/1H4VW
    Stay cool!

  9. Well, I think its a great title. I often wonder if writers title their book and then write it or write their book and then title it. I have a fledgling writing career and mainly do it for myself right now but I am getting there. I can almost bet you I will have some song titles for titles of my book. The problem is I have a tendency to listen to guilty pleasure music. Guess I won’t use any of those for titles else people will know what crazy stuff I have been listening too!

  10. Wil – this is a bit random but just a geek is being sold on amazon uk for 111 pounds all the way up to 888 pounds for the hardcover edition – it seems that maybe you can start shopping for that playstation 2/3? lol.

  11. If I would see 1p of that, absolutely. As it is, though, I only get a tiny portion of the wholesale price, and any markup because of rarity goes to the seller.

  12. Hey wil, thanks for replying – that’s a shame.I loved that book so much and I am loving happiest days of our lives right now. Please write more so the world can enjoy your wonderful stories. I am telling everyone how great your work is and cannot wait to read more. You have made a huge believer out of me.
