Never Take Life Seriously T-shirt

Have you heard of flying pigs, monkeys, or cows? This one is the best of both world it's the flying dolphin and cow! How cool is that? ==Just another New Age myth, right?== wrong its not right, gosh!! Not so. The Flying Cow is known to occur in folklore from around the world, examples having been found in both prehistoric early human legends and in the texts of the ancient historic world. Ptolemy records a sighting of such a fabled beast, recounting a tale told to him by the wise woman of a village in the Upper Nile regions. Said to have taken place in about 3500 BCE (give or take a few years or so), this is thought by historians to be the earliest record of the phenomenon. Plato too mentions a sighting in 2000 BCE, when an entire squadron of Flying Cows were seen in the sky above Athens, bringing chaos to the streets as superstitious peasants mistakenly took them as a sign that Pallas Athene was angry with them.

Though many dismissed the Flying Cows as nothing more than poorly disguised flying saucers, many small "Cow Cults" popped up in North America, which thought of the Flying Cow as a creature of superior intelligence, sent to Earth in order to enlighten the human race. Most of these cults targeted the cattle industry, attempting to undermine it by means of terrorism and sabotage. Due to their goals and small numbers, the cults were often dismantled quickly. Like the "Contactee Cults" of the 1950s, the members of these groups often rallied around a central individual, who claimed to have been contacted by a flying cow, or claimed to be in telepathic contact with it.

Its probably ahead of it's time, but do wear this shirt because it looks cool and people will think you're in a cow and dolphin cult and everyone wants to be friends with someone that is in a cow and dolphin! No seriously, this shirt tells the world you don't give a hoot and never to take life too seriously.
