The t-shirt deal of the day over at RIPT Apparel is a Star Trek-inspired shirt called “Original Space Drunk.”
The tee, by artist D4N13L, went on sale at RIPT today, Wednesday, February 9, 2011, at midnight CST, and will continue for 24 hours from then, and once itâ€™s over, it will not be sold on the site anymore.
The design is a parody of the Captain Morgan rum label, replacing the swashbuckling rum mascot with Star Trek‘s Captain Kirk, who here has his foot up on a downed Red Shirt with the Enterprise starship in the background. Original Spiced Gold becomes Original Space Drunk, and the text underneath tells us all about how Captain Kirk is “boldly going anywhere, banging anything, and getting red shirts killed in the process” (which is pretty spot on).
The t-shirt is available in menâ€™s and womenâ€™s sizes for $10 each in beige. Kids sizes are $15 (Boys, Girls, and Toddler in pale yellow); Onesies are $18 (in various shades of beige/pale yellow). You can also get the design on a Hoodie for $38 (in Men/Unisex sizes in white/light gray).
