An appeal to collective wisdom: T-shirt division

How foolish I was to think that all seasonal shopping quests had been successfully completed. Has anyone seen a T-shirt that says “defend South Austin” and has a weapon graphic of some kind? If so, where? Better yet; where can this elusive item be purchased? To paraphrase the famous quote from The Scarlet Pimpernel, “I’ve sought it here, I’ve sought it there; I’ve sought that T-shirt everywhere. Is it in heaven? Is it in hell? It must be found so that all will be well” (and so that the last item on the list can be checked off and we can have some fun around here). The most recent confirmed sighting was on Sixth Street, in the vicinity of the Jackalope. I’ve never seen one of these garments myself, but I’d like to, as well as acquire one and complete that wish list I’ve been toting everywhere around town. Really, I know somebody who truly, truly wants one of these, and now I’m beginning to be interested in having one for myself. Hocusing one up at CafePress or one of the screen-print joints here in town just wouldn’t be authentic. Seekers want the genuine article. Come on! Help Santa out here (and make some local designer happy, too).

    I know New Orleans has “Defend New Orleans” shirts. Maybe they’re made by the same people.

    Thank you very much for that link, which I find interesting in and of itself. Perhaps the Defend South Austin shirt is modeled after this. Not having seen it, I can’t say, but I’m grateful for this lead.
