Smoker – From Mashpotato


Someone needs to explain this t-shirt to me, I totally don’t get it and yet am intrigued by it. On the arm of the Tee it says “Smoker”? From a company in Hong Kong called MashPotato, I think it might be a t-shirt competition as well but not sure if that’s the source of all their designs.

    um, it’s a skull, right? so if you smoke, you die.

    am I missing something?

    Damn, you’re right, I totally missed that, well that’s super cool :-) I love skull t’s :-)

    this idea is really interesting, let’s stop smoking!

  4. karl says:

    Yeah, I stopped smoking about 5 years ago :-)

    There’s a Chinese pun in the middle of the shirt, too.

    It sounds like “Smoking Area”, but actually means “Smoking Body” (literally. not in the sexy sense.)

    Oh, now that is awesome klf, thanks for the translation :-)

    Nice catch KLF, very cool. That makes it 100 times better. The sleeve of matches is really nice as well.

    I didn’t want to respond because I thought the question was facetious, plus I smoke and didn’t want to waste any of my precious time on this planet explaining a shirt I thought you understood who’s definition was that I’d die soon.

    the wording is a play on smoking area, on the t-shirt it says smoking body. In Cantonese, body and area have the same pronunciation.
