A kawaii llama shirt that’s loaded with these sublime creatures!

Picture yourself in a long line at the store, with only one register open. Or being nagged by your boss/parent/significant other. Or finding yourself in front of someone going on and on about their political views. You really need to escape. You take a deep breath and close your eyes. An image of a pasture materializes in your mind, with rolling hills, wide sky, and… llamas. Llamas, llamas everywhere! You are in your Happy Place.

This shirt, with its cheerful colors and snarky message – “Excuse me while I visit my Happy Place” – is for those situations when you want to tune out. Or if you love llamas!

Rogue Panda on Rampage

Rogue Panda on Rampage

A kawaii panda shirt: Rogue Panda on Rampage! This design was inspired by an incident in Flagstaff, Arizona a few months ago, when a roadside electronic sign was hacked. Instead of a traffic message telling drivers not to turn left at an upcoming intersection, the sign was changed to read, “Rogue Panda on Rampage.” The Flagstaff Police Department’s statement was hilarious: “We want to assure all citizens of Flagstaff that there is no problem with rogue pandas.”

For this shirt, I wanted to draw a panda that was trying – unsuccessfully – to look threatening. I think that even on a rampage, a panda would look cute!

You may have noticed that along with the T-shirts and hoodies, we also sell “Panda Jerseys.” What’s a Panda Jersey, you might ask? It’s very similar to a baseball jersey, but unlike an ordinary jersey, the Panda Jersey has a panda tail printed on the back. With its panda tail and black raglan sleeves, the Panda Jersey will transform you into a panda*! See the pics below (click to zoom in).

Rogue Panda on Rampage T-shirts Note that our Rogue Panda T-shirts and hoodies don’t have the panda tail that the jerseys do. They’re still super kawaii though! The Rogue Panda on Rampage shirts are available at our online store.

Kawaii Pandas Can Poop T-Shirt

Kawaii Panda

A kawaii panda T-shirt that proclaims a little known fact about the lovable animals. Did you know that pandas can poop up to 40 times a day? That works out to once every 36 minutes! This is a result of the panda’s massive diet. Since pandas extract little nutrition from bamboo, they have to eat loads of it – 20 to 30 pounds – and keep their digestive tracts full.

Fortunately, all this panda poo is valuable. Scientists can extract unique DNA profiles from panda poop. Hence they can estimate how many individual pandas reside in an area, how far they roam, their sex, and their general health. According to panda researcher Prof. Michael Bruford of Cardiff University, “We can start to reconstruct the lifestyles of these animals without ever having to see them.” Amazing!

Panda poop is also used to fertilize green tea that retails for $35,000 per pound. According to the manufacturer, panda poop contains many nutrients that were undigested by the panda. The manufacturer claims the nutrients end up in the tea.

Do you like this cute panda illustration, but would prefer a different slogan? You can build a personalized version of this shirt.
