NEW SHIRT IDEA…
Let us know your thoughts! If we get enough interest in this one, we’ll take it to the next step and get these bad boys P-R-I-N-T-E-D!
This idea came to me last Saturday when I had the privilege of being one of the 4 groomsmen at my cousin’s Marty’s wedding.
Boy was it hot out that day… It really didn’t help that we were all out in full-on suits and the ceremony was outdoors in the middle of the day!
Our saving grace that day was the limo that we got to sit in, in between the ceremony, picture taking and reception. That glorious air-conditioned interior with its leather cushy leather seats and tasty refreshingly cool alcoholic refreshments were the love of my life that day.
Speaking of limos… here’s quick shameless plug for a buddy of mine in Vancouver who runs a limo company. I think it’s called VanCity Limousines. I was up visiting in Vancouver one time and my buddy took me for a tour ’round town. Had a blast! Thanks buddy.
The only thing that made sitting in that limo better than the air-con, leather seats and refreshments… was the moment that IT happened…
PS, Marty, if you’re reading this, I really enjoyed your wedding day. Right now, I’m just talking about the part of the day when I was in the limo. Cool? No hard feelings. Back to the story…
First, a little background. Our limo driver for that day was a dude that goes by the name of Eduardo. He was a skinny Mexican or Spanish guy—I can’t never tell the difference… I know that sounds awfully racist, but hey… this site’s all about being blunt and offensive. =)
The ceremony had just finished and Eduardo had driven us to the park down the street to take some photos by the flower garden they have there. We were all posing and Eduardo was hanging out nearby about 50 feet away. Suddenly the bride slips backwards and lands in a mud puddle.
Yes, it was tragic for the dress and for the stress it caused on everyone else for the rest of the day… but the next 30 seconds was wonderful. Two seconds after she fell, Eduardo comes sprinting over at full speed and yells out at the top of his lungs the following words…
“It’s OK!… I’m a limo driver!”
And he said it sort of how you’d expect Mario would say it. (yes, I’m talking about the video game plumber guy).
It came out a little more like “It’s-a O-Kay!… I’m a lee-mo driver!”
The girls were really panicked, but the guys were on the floor laughing. I know… we’re all jerks.
At that moment, I felt like I was inside of a Napoleon Dynamite movie…
So Eduardo… thanks for being you. THIS shirt’s for you, buddy… Thank you for the inspiration.
Here’s the first draft. What do you think?
Hilarious? I think so…
“It’s OK!…. I’m a limo driver”
LOL…! Oh Eduardo, you sly dog, you…
Oh yeah… Eduardo, head on over to this post and pick that shirt up for yourself. We know it must get a little boring driving that limo around all day long. You might as well make things a little more exciting—you’ll thank us later.
Send in the love and likes. We’ll see how things go and if ya’ll love this as much as we did here, we’ll polish this up and get it out to production!
Here’s to all great limo drivers out there:
