Chairman Meow T-Shirt – Cats n’ Commies
May 20, 2012 § Leave a comment
The Chairman Meow T-Shirt is a great looking tee, though I’d always find it hard to believe that cats were capable of sharing and helping each other out. Let’s face it, cats aren’t exactly the sharing type.
Chairman Mao’s name means Chairman Meow. True story. Mao is the Chinese way of saying Meow. That being said, I still can’t imagine cats being communists. At least not if humans are still around. Anyone who has ever owned a cat knows that their definition of “love” is simply “you’re a walking can-opener and source of warmth and therefore you’re of use to me” – hardly the foundations of an equal society, is it? But it does look good. And there is scope for expansion with other anthropomorphised Red leaders such as Che Iguana, Fido Castro, Josef Starling… I could go on but, mercifully, I won’t. Regardless, this cat t-shirt is a fine looking feline and the retro illustration is really eye-catching. The cat’s pretty cute too. Look! He’s in a hat!
This tee can be found at Cafe Press and was designed by dogs_of_war who have quite an extensive range. This is the ladies version which comes in four colours and sizes (S-XL), but you really want it in red. Versions for kids and men are around too. All hail Chairman Meow!
