Wonderpunk Vintage T-Shirts: Retro Racing Car T-Shirt

When it comes to blooper reels, motor racing holds its own in providing a source of humorous mishaps.

There's the overly ambitious jump attempt that doesn't go according to plan. Or the fierce confrontation between two Moto GP or World Superbike riders who forgot to remove their helments before attempting to beat one another up. It's all funny provided you're not directly involved.

The instalment below ranks high on the motorsport fan stupidity scale. His dream, no doubt, was to be the 'man who gracefully leapt over a moving formula 1 car', his reality is 'the idiot now known as roadkill'!  There he was thinking if only he drunk enough redbull he'd actually grow wings...  Perhaps a few less hotdogs might have done the trick.

The Wonderpunk vintage t-shirt range wouldn't be complete without a car slogan – so here it is, Ol Thirsty!

Sizes: S, M, L, XL, XXL, XXXL

Wonderpunk Vintage T-Shirts: Retro Bowling T-Shirt

Now here's where it's at - Barack Obama hittin’ the boards on a Saturday night.  Who wouldn't want to bowl the blues away after a long week attempting to strike peace deals in the middle east.  Clearly he's throwing down a challenge to Netanyahu and Abbas.

Nice technique, watchful.  I just know there's a T-Birds jacket lurking somewhere in the background.  There's no pretence with this guy, he's right when he says "...knock down pins, not people!" 

Get your vintage bowling t-shirt and support the cause!

Vintage T-Shirt: Bundy - The Big Man Of Wrestling

Vintage wresting requires a vintage t-shirt, and who better to showcase than Mr Bundy. Said to have weighed 201 kgs (444 lbs) at the peak of his power, this superstar of a bygone era commanded respect from friend and foe alike.

Who can forget the inaugural WrestleMania way back in 1985, where Bundy destroyed Special Delivery Jones in 23 seconds. The following year at WrestleMania 2, it was Bundy versus Hulk Hogan in the cage - first one out wins.  ('Mean Gene' looking sharp as always at the beginning...)

Okay, if you didn't have time to watch, it was Hogan who emerged victor in 10mins and 15 seconds.

Vintage T-Shirt Fell off the Back of a Truck?

Commentary on an Australian Global Idiom

Common household electrical items are no stranger to unconventional distribution methods.  The saying, 'fell off the back of a truck', generally relates to goods that, well... let's say are unlikely to have been obtained in an altruistic fashion.  Yet, any individual who uses the rear of a truck as their showroom probably isn't the type to bring home for a hot meal and pleasant chit-chat about current affairs.

The clandestine alleyway trade, and its associated sayings, are by no means unique to Australian soil however.  The English have their own adaptation of the 'fell of the back of...' saying, substituting the word truck for 'lorry'.  In the U.S., Seinfeld parodied the street trade in an episode involving the the distribution of shower heads.  If this was any indication, product variety abounds - the next big thing need not necessarily be a car stereo or home theatre system!


Colours: Metro Blue, Gold, Olive, also available in Grey
Size: S, M, L, XL, XXL, XXXL
Sex: Mens, Womens

While the prices are likely to be bargain basement, the caveat emptor lies in the inability to return dysfunctional items, not because you weren't issued a receipt, but because the vendors seems to enjoy traveling, and as such are frequently on the move.

Nowadays, electrical appliances aren't the only objects to fall off the back of trucks.  It's become a popular pastime activity for people, as evidenced below.

Ahh, good times...

Howzat Vintage Cricket T-Shirt

By all reports, in the days of W.G. Grace, cricket was as a gentleman's game.  They were competitive, but not 'unsporting'.  There was likely to be a healthy respect for the opposition, and their talents, which manifested in handshakes at the close of play and comments of 'well done old boy'.

Nowadays, cricket is entertaining on more than one level.  Sure there's the conventional sporting contest, but a new game has emerged in recent decades - a game that goes well beyond athletic ability (ahhm, the term 'athletic' used loosely as applied to cricketers - see below). 

The new game is the exploitation of an opposition player's mental fragility - otherwise known as 'sledging'!

Warnie possessed an uncanny ability to be a master of both.  But even a master gets tested, as Warne was by South African Daryll Cullinan, aka Warne's bunny:

As Cullinan was on his way to the wicket, Warne told him he had been waiting 2 years for another chance to humiliate him. "Looks like you spent it eating ," Cullinan retorted.

In a separate match, Ian Healy continued the food theme when Warne was attempting to get, plump Sri Lankan captain Arjuna Ranatunga out of his crease for a drive - Healy stated "Warnie, put a Mars Bar on a good length, that should do it."

What is the best sledge you've heard, either in professional sport, or at a local level?

Vintage cricket needs a vintage t-shirt, so... howzat!
