Boycott RoadKillTShirts.com

Listen, I know people who read this site aren't about to run out and buy a T-shirt that says, "Don't get it twisted," complete with a photo of a pretzel on it. (Get it? Fucking hilarious, right?) But, I saw this in the comments on Kade's website, and endorse it wholeheartedly, so share it with your dim-witted friends:

Wanted to get this up here before it gets lost in the comments:

Here is my e-mail to the t-shirt selling site that advertises here with Artie:

Subject: Ad on http://www.arthurkade.com

I was looking into buying some hip, funny t-shirts from your site, but then realized you advertise on http://www.arthurkade.com. Since he is everything normal people in a society deplore I feel it’s not wise of me to spend money at a company who feels the need to advertise with such a deplorable human being.

Not a customer,

My response:

Nice way to respond to a potential customer. I will be sharing this with others who object to you ad/vert/ising with an ass hammer like Arthur Kade. Lucky for you he has a very small amount of followers. Big mistake on your part. Good job.

Asshammer. That sums up Kade pretty well.
About to realize their business model is a failure and that they should've gone with an AC Boardwalk hut shop. That sums up the T-shirt company pretty well, too.
