It is T-Shirt friday once again, the last Friday of the month, a tradition begun by Nursemyra.

Today I am modeling a t-shirt that I have had for 25 years.   It was a premium offered by our local Public Television station in San Francisco:  “Give us x amount of dollars to support this PBS station, and we will send you this t-shirt.”  The pledge break was during the airing of a Monty Python’s Flying Circus marathon, so naturally the t-shirt offered was a Python t-shirt.

How did such a garment survive for so many years, you may ask?   The quick answer is that when I got it it was barely the right size, and it didn’t take me long to become to fat to wear it at all.   Also, at the time I was not that into tie-dye.  It survived in the back of my dresser drawers because it was way too cool to throw away.

How appropriate to feature it on t-shirt Friday at a time when the powers that be on the TV have decided to honor the Pythons and show a marathon not only of all the television series but also the movies.   I’m still waiting for them to bring back Fawlty Towers.
