Everything I Like Causes Cancer

Where we've been convinced to write a new post on Dec. 2. Stay tuned!



You know, when I named this blog I really didn't consider the hot-button connotation of the word cancer.  I'm an impulsive gal so forward thinking isn't my strong suit.  Interesting, sometimes gross, searches have been bringing people here since 2007.  Imagine their disappointment when they find me, a perfectly healthy asshole who smokes while she sits in the sun.  Precious.










Anyway, making fun of me is not why we're here today.  We're here today because my lack of foresight brought Ryan to me.  Funny, irreverent, awesome Ryan.  See, Ryan recently
kicked cancer's ass.  While he was busy karate kicking cancer square in the bojangles, he also noticed there weren't any funny cancer shirts.  Yeah.  None.  Booooring.

"Isn't humor the best medicine?" he wondered aloud.

Alright, I made up that part about him talking to himself but he did go from there to designing a line of sick shirts that kinda make me wish I had cancer.  


They are edgy and irreverent and vintage and fabulous.


They also don't make you want to puke, which is always a plus when choosing a garment for a friend with cancer, or even in general.

See?  We can tolerate pink when it's off-color.  Thanks, Ryan!



Ryan asked me to tell you that you can feel all warm and bubbly knowing that a portion of each sale will be donated to a different cancer charity.  So go!  Go look at them here!  And then buy 5.  I wear a medium, monkeys, the designs showcased here are my favorites, and I prefer a fitted shirt.  I thank you in advance for your selfless generosity.

If your friend ever beats Lupus he should make a shirt that says, "I beat Lupus" with picture of that kid named Lupus on the Bad News Bears gettngn beaten.

I think Chemosabe is my favorite.

Things are odd all over. Just found out my uncle (53years old)has cancer and a kick ass sense of humor. This will make his day.

I don't know, Mr. McFeely looks kinda nice. I'd let him grope me. Well, for the right price I mean.

That's great Ryan could make lemonade out of the lemons he was dealt, as they say. Good for him!

These are hilarious! What a great idea.

Also a great idea: The use of "bojangles" as a word for testicles.

Ryan said...

Thanks so much for posting about my cancer shirts.
Loved reading everyones comments as well. Wait until you see the new shirts I will be adding in the next week or so.

I love these! My son and I are volunteering at a breast cancer walk next month. I may have to be wearing one of these at the registration table! Thanks!
