Mouse Known Pleasures

hi there

well, my first instinct when i saw this was to check the date. i might, for all i know or do not know, have slipped into a coma and been unaware of it, waking up on April 1. a check suggests, however, that it is indeed January 24, a date not usually associated with practical jokes.

so this t-shirt which combines the iconic images of Mickey Mouse and the band Joy Division is real, then.

erm, yeah. to semi-quote Nigel Tufnel and David St Hubbins, it's a fine little twist between clever and stupid. i am still trying to work out if this is one of the most excellent things ever made or one of the worst possible ideas that man has ever taken responsibility for. hats off to whoever came up with this, i for one will confess to never thinking of combining a Joy Division album cover with an imaginary mouse.

i kind of want one, but i also kind of want to wait and see what they do next. a Mickey Mouse altered version of Meat Is Murder or, even better, The Queen Is Dead by The Smiths?

if you are in a position in which you simply cannot wait to see what they do next and wish to own one of these shirts, this is the link you are looking for. happy shopping!

be excellent to each other!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
