Inspiration comes from the strangest places. Two weeks ago, a news article about unruly air passengers led to an idea that I expressed on Reddit: “BRB, making a ‘If you act up on this plane I will help the flight attendants kick your butt’ shirt.” Some Redditors expressed interest, leading to a new t-shirt design you can see here.
In a perfect world, we wouldn’t be having this conversation. We have a reasonable expectation that people will behave themselves, especially after the horror show of 2020. Sadly, that isn’t happening. COVID ripped the Band-aids off of civilization, revealing the suppurating social wounds we’ve been trying to ignore. Now, like battlefield surgeons, we’re attempting to stabilize our patients while holding onto what little patience we have left. It’s times like these that create something called ‘gallows humor.’ This new t-shirt design is my small contribution.
That’s ultimately the purpose behind the website, when I’m not writing scifi novels. One of these days, this will all be behind us and we’ll laugh. It may be one of those laughs that builds into a maniacal scream, but you take the fun where you find it.
Anyway, if you want this t-shirt, you can pick it up on Custom Ink. I don’t get a dime if you buy one of these, it’s another freebie from the world of Inkican.
