Valentine’s Day Shirt – Kawaii Praying Mantis

January 25th, 2012

kawaii praying mantis

Valentine’s Day is coming up, so in honor of the event we introduce our new kawaii praying mantis shirt. The graphic shows a cute male praying mantis in love. Meanwhile, his hungry sweetheart hides a fork behind her while she drools in anticipation. She’s looking forward to her next meal of course, as female praying mantises famously bite off and eat their beaus’ heads after mating. Sometimes the feeding occurs during mating. In this case, copulation continues while the lady mantis eats, since insects can live for a short while after losing their heads. The male can be even more energetic while having sex in his last moments. (>_<)

The shirt sports the saying, "Nothing is sweeter than love." For a Valentine's Day shirt, this design is pretty cynical. But those who aren't jaded about love - stay tuned! We have a sweeter, more romantic shirt design coming up! [EDIT: Sweeter design is now released!]
