Kentucky Spirit

Last weekend, I returned to Baltimore via Louisville International Airport aka Standiford Field. After clearing security, I spied a teen aged boy sporting an offensive, yet amusing t-shirt. I smirked and thought, "Wait and see how funny it is when they don't let you on the plane with that." We were both walking through the concourse in the same direction, when he joined a group that was presumably his family. I am fairly proficient at reading people and I could tell that they were hardcore Jesus-freaks at a glance. Yet, they all had on the same offensive shirt. So, of course, I asked the mother where she got them and learned that they came from an airport souvenir store. This may well have been the best $9.99 I ever spent:

No matter how you take that shirt's message, it isn't good.

That's even better than the Idaho shirts that say:
'You the ho?
No.
I-da-ho.'

I also heart anal lubricant.

Holy crap, my girl KY will love that shirt. The next time I am at the Cincitucky airport, I will have to pick one up for her.

Maybe with that out and out sentiment, they'll let you bring more than 3 oz of your beloved KY on the plane!

I'm so glad I live in NY. LMAO

It would go nicely with the "KY Lady" license plate that I once spotted in a parking lot.

I can't get the picture of you sporting this shirt with two proud thumbs pointing toward yourself, in a "THIS guy" pose.

(Which is odd because robots don't wear shirts.)

oops..i meant i can't get the picture of (previous comment) out of my head.

(That's what happens when I don't have a latte.)

Hilarious. I just posted a Louisville Kentucky area crime report

Oh my! I guess if you judged them to be hardcore Jesus-freaks, then I imagine they are just as passionate about everything else, right? Of course, it is necessary to lubricate everyone else if you are a hardcore Jesus freak, eh?

cham-Yes, it's hard to determine which interpretation is more ominous.

SJ-I know. I would have paid double for it.

scary-I'd be a little leery of wearing that around Baltimore.

kadonkadonk-That sould be Idaho's official motto.

ACW-Get your mind out of the gutter. There are other things KY can be used for. I'm not sure what they are, but I'm sure they exist.

ADW-I bought mine in Louisville, but CVG probably sells them, too.

LOTI-You can bring much more than 3 oz on now, if you know where to hide it.

charles- That is an understatement.

puerilewaite-I assume you got her number, right?

hanmee-Do you think chicks would dig that? I do, too.

corn dog- I lived there for a year and there was virtually no crime there.

sassy- Yes. The Lord works in mysterious ways.

That is too funny. I'd go there and do that specifically to get the T-shirt.

THE GAME IS AFOOT!

priceless.

maybe the back said "and I've been to Uranus"? Me bad, I know.

luck o the Irish:

Why o why do most of the personal lubricants on the market package their product in 4 oz. containers? That is one oz. over the airplane limit. Perhaps it is product manufacaturers sick sense of humor, just imagine trash cans filled with KY and "warming gel" in the security trash bins at the airport.

Priceless. Definately worth ten bucks!

 
At 11:09 PM, Blogger Gucci Muse said...

I love the fact they have to explain what the KY meant, underneath.

 
At 8:26 AM, Blogger tfg said...

claude-Brave words, but, remember, this is Kentucky that we're discussing.

deb-OK, that comment was as funny as the post.

cham-Imagine? I haven't paid retail for a tube of love butter in years.

legaleagle-I agree. I bet they sell a lot without ever figuring out why.

gucci-That's the problem with Kentucky. It's full of Kentuckians.

 
At 12:28 PM, Blogger Sassy Blondie said...

I hate to brand all Kentucky residents as KY t-shirt lovers. And somehow I don't feel right even looking at the shirt...it's like I'm invading the wearer's privacy. One's personal lubrication or love of state should be one's own business, eh?

 
At 8:50 PM, Blogger Kira said...

I wonder if they think they live in the lubricant state :P

 
At 10:40 PM, Blogger Legaleagle said...

It just makes me giggle....

 
At 9:46 AM, Anonymous hanmee said...

hmm...maybe robot chicks. Don't know about humans.

 
At 10:48 PM, Blogger karla said...

This explains a lot about the people I'v met from Kentucky.

 
At 9:12 AM, Blogger puerileuwaite said...

puerilewaite-I assume you got her number, right?

No, TFG. Unfortunately the opportunity slipped right through my fingers ...

 
At 6:46 PM, Blogger CruiserMel said...

That just made me choke on my flavored personal lubricant. Don't ask.

It's just like my "I (heart) CAMELTOE" shirt

(California, Maine, Lawrence Taylor and Old English 800)

HEY! There's no cig on the robot! CONGRATS!!!

 
At 11:25 PM, Blogger Serena Joy said...

Oh, look! The robot's lost his smoke. I'm guessing this means the cravings are well and truly gone.:-)

 
At 2:55 PM, Blogger Katherine said...

Hmm, maybe if you get out the Sharpie and write the word "Bourbon" under KY. Or "Jelly." Your choice.

Now that's some seriously good stuff!
