Countless Africans really are wandering the streets of Lagos and Lome wearing "USC: BACK 2 BACK CHAMPIONS!!!" and "BRADY QUINN: HEISMANTASTIC!!!" t-shirts. Or at least we like to think so after reading about how hypothetical merchandise like "Buffalo Bills: Super Bowl Champs" tees and hats wind their way down the supply chain and onto the backs of Malian herdsmen.
An eagle-eyed reader saved one such example of neverwas memorabilia for us, however, and sent it post-haste to the Swindle Reptile Farm on Highway 78. The taste is a bit fresher on this one, however, and endlessly sweet for us.
Busted Memorabilia presents: the "Make Florida an Urban Myth" t-shirt.
Available in brilliant scarlet.

And, in your "economics illustrated" lesson of the day, the price tag:
Da hao to 'Fesser for the shirt, and for spending more money to ship it than it cost to purchase the actual tee.
