Mooninite for the Misbegotten

Always the enterprising young man, my Max has designed a tee-shirt! It is based on the Mooninite “bomb scare” that occurred in Boston a few months ago, where the folks who were marketing Aqua Teen Hunger Force placed little lit-up Mooninite cartoons on boards and hid them all over the city as an advertising ploy, only to get their asses royally kicked by the City of Boston for causing a panic, at least among the uninformed powers that be. I think it was irresponsible of the Aqua Teen Hunger Force people, and they have certainly had to pay for their mistake, but Max disagreed with the uproar it all caused. To him, this was a sign of how stupid adults are. I am intrigued by his growing skepticism about the world and I truly enjoy his sense of humor, which is why I am linking to him here. The line on the tee-shirt is “Somebody Set Up Us the Bomb,” illustrated with the Mooninite figure, refers to a bad Japanese translation of a cheezy video game, “Zero Wing.”


Well done Max!

The only way to live one’s life, in this day and age of stupidity and truthiness, is to Move Zig for Great Justice.

(Voltaire, in his more constructively turbulent times, said “tend thine own garden”. But those were indeed different times.)

You know what you doing.
