You Can Wear Me

When I was a boy I had one dream... That people would some day wear a shirt named after me. Well maybe I didn't have one dream. I guess it would depend on my age.

At one point I wanted to own a pet store and breed gerbils. It's unclear if I'd carry animals other than gerbils but I'm guessing I wanted to be known as the "Gerbil Guy."

And that at one point I wanted to make those big lego constructions, and at one time I wanted to be an astronaut, a marine biologist, a zookeeper and more.

But we're here to talk about my dream to have a shirt named after me.

Well I have yet to achieve that... But I do now have a softshell jacket named after me.

Remember that time I wrote an open letter to Moosejaw telling them why I was a Human of Interest? Well if you don't you can click on that link in the last sentence. But if you do you can read on.

I was told a bit ago that they do in fact think I'm and HOI (but we already knew that) and I'd be getting a softshell jacket named after me... And it's available now... The Kenny Friedman softshell jacket.

Freaking named after me.
What you're going to want to do is buy one for every member of your family... Because, well, it's named after me...

And if that's not enough you can get a Smonk You shirt. My store is still kind of in beta (and probably always will be) because I haven't filled out the breadth of gear... But since you're already pqyched about wearing me I thought I'd give you more chances.

The words appear backwards in a mirror... It's magic.
Here's what people would be saying about my shirt if I had asked them for a quote:
Morgan from The 818 "This would look awesome on that homeless guy I see in the park."
Mandy from Harper's Happenings "Now I have a new rag to clean up spills with."
Mae from Parenting in Progress "It's made of cotton."
Jen from her blogs but mostly twitter "I'd wear it to buy cheese but I'd be afraid someone would see me."

And now that I'm done with the post I realize that I never wanted to have a shirt named after me... Well not until I heard of the Moosejaw Human of Interest thing.

  1. Love it Kenny. It's probably a good thing you didn't become known as "The Gerbil Guy" since that has come to have some less than desirable connotations, (thanks alot, Richard Gere). And Moosejaw could have named something a little less expensive after you. Oh well.

  2. Are they sending you one? I mean, that's the least they can do. Also? Why are there no reviews showing up. I know there should be at least one. Heh.
