Orange County Choppers T-shirt

Looks like there might be a Frank Zappa fan over at Orange County Choppers. Seen their new t-shirt?

I’d argue that the iconic Zappa mustache logo is far more famous and certainly has been around a lot longer.

Now that’s a famous mustache! What’s more, it’s been copyrighted by the Zappa Family Trust. Hey, Paul, better be careful. Y’know, Gail Zappa‘s got quite the reputation for defending all things Zappa. Wasn’t that long ago Gail sued a… Zappa fan club, of all things… over their use of the mustache in promoting their annual “Zappanale” festival. (Okay, ZFT lost that one largely, as far as I can tell, on technicalities.) Your pockets are deeper, I’m bettin’, and you’re right here in the good ‘ol USofA rather than Germany.

I don’t know what to make of this oldie-but-goodie – Toyota.

One thought on “Orange County Choppers T-shirt”

  1. I can’t be the P-a-u-l, er, **** in question — my pockets are so shallow as to be sewn shut to reduce lint accumulation. My keyring hangs on my belt, I have next to no need for a wallet or billfold, and I wipe my nose on my sleeve. (All those who just said, eeeww may now leave the auditorium via the wimp exit.)

Go ahead and say it.
