So here is a shirt that I decided to draw.  Then I took it and screened it to a ton of black shirts.  If you know what a Merkin is you will love this shirt.........

A Merkin is a female pubic wig that was used mostly around the black plague days.  Whores/Hookers would wear the when they had lice or other nasty little friends to cover up, that way their paying customers had no idea they were infected or under age.  Men would wear them too!  I believe you can still buy them for around $20 each......

Thats My Story.... hope you liked it.

The only "merkin" I know is the character "Merkin Muffley" from "Dr. Strangelove" -- he's President of the US!  Now that I know what a merkin is, the name seems even more humorous, heheh Smiley

Merkins were my favorite subject matter when making lude phone calls.  I would often pretend to be a merkin manufacturer, calling to inform a housewife that her husband had stopped payment on the check he sent us for his special order pubic wig, and really, we're going to sue if we don't see some reimbursement.

I am in love with your t shirt.

I looked at the blow up on the web site she linked to, the text says:
"Who says wigs aren't sexy?  100% human hair.  Hand-tied on lace foundation.  Available in Black only."

That's so deliciously nasty! I googled but couldn't find a pic of a merkin... I'd really like to see what a real one looks like. If someone could post a pic/link that would rock. How do they stay on? Glue?
