If you have been following the 3 wolf shirt satire/review on Amazon.com it has gone viral. At first it was just a funny'irreverent buyer review that recounted what happened to him when he wore the shirt in Walmart and stuff. He made up a few "Onion-like" scenarios where positive things happened to him because of this shirt. The shirt/artwork is pure kitsch though. The video gets better as you go along/well sort of. I liked how they included Wolf Blitzer. ha

The original Amazon.com review of the product for sale. There are over 700 reviews now.
"I arrived at Wal-mart, mounted my courtesy-scooter (walking is such a drag!) sitting side saddle so that my wolves would show. While I was browsing tube socks, I could hear aroused asthmatic breathing behind me. I turned around to see a slightly sweaty dream in sweatpants and flip-flops standing there. She told me she liked the wolves on my shirt, I told her I wanted to howl at her moon. She offered me a swig from her mountain dew, and I drove my scooter, with her shuffling along side out the door and into the rest of our lives. Thank you wolf shirt."
"Pros: Fits my girthy frame, has wolves on it, attracts women
Cons: Only 3 wolves (could probably use a few more on the 'guns'), cannot see wolves when sitting with arms crossed, wolves would have been better if they glowed in the dark."

More on the three wolf shirt. Originally, I was torn as to whether I should have posted the topic here or in the Satire/Irony category, a tough call. ha

"I was searching for a book for school and the Amazon recommendation system suggested I might like the Three Wolf Moon T-shirt," said Govern. "It was just a completely serendipitous one-time thing. I just got the urge and thought it would be funny."
