Only in Memphis...

Only in Memphis would a University, specifically the Sports Information Director, approve the sale of a shirt with "Bust a Nutt" written prominently on the front. Actually, maybe it should be "only in the Mid-South" because Ole Miss had to approve the shirts as well. Here's a picture...


And no, the tiger is not in the middle of a pelvic thrust. He is simply swinging a sledge hammer. The fact that both universities and the printing company signed off on this blows my mind. But it makes the shirt even funnier. However, it is not beyond the realm of possibility that Ole Miss saw the proof of this shirt, understood the meaning, and went "Seriously, Memphis? ... Seriously?" If I'm Ole Miss and realize the embarrassment and costliness of such an oversight, I absolutely sign off on the shirt and sit back as Memphis has to destroy thousands of dollars in inventory and quell a PR storm. The game is still 5 days away but... Ole Miss - 1, Memphis - 0.

Surely everybody who reads this blog understands the play on words here, but just in case, Urban Dictionary provides a definition of bust a nut (18+). The shirts have since been pulled from every UofM affiliated store. However, there is one store not affiliated with the UofM that is still selling them... that would be The College Station in Wolfchase Galleria. Go get one before they run out!

No word yet if the University had plans to distribute Aloa Chino's Bust-a-Nut Performance Energy Bars as promotional items before the game.

This shirt blows me as well. I wonder if the College Station store will have a thick load of the shirts in stock. Even though I'm in Florida, I'd like to bust one out for the game. All kidding aside, I hope the Tigers bring their spunk this weekend, and don't forget to drink their protein shakes before the game.

I heard all the players girlfriends will be wearing Pearl necklaces in support of the team.
