I Love Lucy T-Shirt
Price: $21.95
Many people believe Lucille Ball was the funniest woman to ever walk the planet, but they are wrong. About three million years before Lucy entertained us with Vitameatavegamin, another Lucy was cracking them up over in Africa. She was famous for her "smash rock on snake" and "smash rock on rodent" routines, and she's credited with being the first performer of any gender to slip on a banana peel. (Whether this was a spark of comic brilliance or a random accident will never be known.) Sadly, all we have left of this forgotten genius is a few of her bones. Though the Comedy Hall of Fame in Akron, Ohio fought dearly for them, the skeleton is unfortunately tucked away in some stuffy science museum in Ethiopia. But we're determined to keep Lucy's comic legend alive, and that's why we're offering you this I Love Lucy t-shirt. When you wear it, Lucy will once again bring smiles to everyone who crosses her path.
