Intellectual Panda Tee
Even hipster pandas are cute. Here Mei Xiang and Tian Tian get their thinking glasses on as they eat out in the snow. (We only know it's snowing because we found Ann Batdorf's original photo this was created from, in which it's obvious. There's only one thing about the shirt that tells you that it's snowing. See those little white specs on foreground panda, Mei? They're snowflakes.) What do you think they've got their glasses on for? Reading? Maybe they're pondering world peace? Maybe they're thinking about China / U.S. relations? (You have to admit - if we used only pandas as ambassadors, everything would be a lot more agreeable.) Or maybe they're just contemplating how tasty that bamboo is. Mei and Tian, the two "intellectual pandas" at the Smithsonian's National Zoological Park, don a pair of glasses to grace the front of this white, 100% cotton shirt. Machine wash cold. Tumble dry low (which works out well, because pandas tumble) or lay flat to dry. Imported.
