I’ve always hated being called dude. In the late 90s I was a cook/patron in Montreal college bar called The Madhatter Library Pub (later the Mdhatter Cafe Pub the lamer name reflected the lamer location). At that time the term ‘dude’ was in full reruns after being plucked from it’s proper place (Spicolli’s lips in Fast Times at Rigemount High) & was falling out of everyone’s mouth. From burnouts to those who pretended to be a burnout to jocks and beyond ‘Hey dude!’ was so very popular. Later they even made a movie out of the term, that’s just how cool it was. At the time, if someone prefaced asking me for a hoagie or whatever with the term ‘Hey dude…’ I’d completely ignore them. I’d go on about my business until one of the staff would tell them ‘Oh, did you call him ’dude’? Yeah, he won’t respond if you call him dude. call him Billy.’ It was that kind of place and I was that kind of guy. There was a thrash metal band in the late 80s called Scatterbrain who had a song titled Don’t call me Dude which I’d hum while I worked. I’ve wanted this shirt for ages.

    awesomely awesome, dude!

  • man… seriously, read the shirt. As always, it backfires. Bet if I was the keeper of your dinner you’d be singing a different tune.

    by the way, the double awesome is awesome.

    Well, if I would be the 3rd person to call you dude here, it won’t be funny (so I’ll pass).

    Love the tee! The concept and the execution :)

  • thank you for playing by the rules. I don’t normally condone doing so, but in this case I encourage it.
    thank you dani.

    Cause i have short hair (I am a girl) people think i am a dude. I so need this shirt

  • funny. I had long hair and was a boy (still am) and people called me a girl. I have to agree, you do need this shirt.

    yeah it gets even worse, when it was short it was like croped, a number 1 shave. (to rase money for charity) and when people finally got over it “oh ur a giirl, yeah i get you, but why girl” why… why! I feel for you KreddibleTrout!

  • when I was a teeneger my little male cousin used to ask, ‘Cuz, why do you have long hair?’ I’d always answer ‘Why do you have short hair?’ Shut him the heck up but good! Later on I too cropped (number -1 shave, slappin bald) for many years. Saves on shampoo.

    KreddibleTrout,
    I have been trying to find the album with the song by SkatterBrain “Hey Dude, dont call me dude” for years… Do you know (or have a copy – bootleg is fine – that i can buy) where I can get it? It’s like the best, most relevant song ever written in my opinion.

  • The album was Here Comes Trouble. I’m not sure where to buy it and I’m certainly not going to be the type of person to encourage you to download it online… (cough! cough!).

  • (…and isn’t the most relevant song ever written ‘Dog Farts’ by Dayglo Abortions?)
