OK, so one of my posts goes somewhat viral (at least locally) and gets made into a T-shirt by the Fair Trade Coffee and Chocolates group at my school. Said T-shirt is given to me as a gift and enthusiastically modeled by chic #3.

If you can't read it, it says:
"Spit out that slave-trade coffee, you child-labor-loving freak."

I'm so touched (sniff). Mind you, the post said that was NOT the way to open conversation. You can catch the context in Etiquette Tips for Liberal and Conservative Catholics, here.

Aww, Chic #3 is adorable!
That's a great shirt, by the way. You're hitting the big time, now; you created a localised meme! Out of curiosity, just HOW aware are your students of this blog?

I, too, want this shirt. You could sell a bunch during Summer residency

Sorry folks--I got that through campus ministry and they are closed for the summer (we don't have undergrad classes in the summer). If you are really interested, remind me in the Fall, when they'll be around.

p.s. Scott, Eric may be able to help.
