Ok, so you wanna make a shirt that pays tribute to the classic Little Richard song “Tutti Frutti”. Great. I like Little Richard and I’m greatly looking forward to, at some point in time, getting the full, undisclosed biography of the madness that is his life and even though I much prefer songs like “Rip it up” or “Ready Teddy”, “Tutti Frutti” is an iconic song, no doubt about it. And although you picked colors that aren’t quite my style, I can live with that – the type is big and bold and all that.
BUT! How about fucking LISTENING to the song you’re quoting and trying to get the lyrics right? Do it. Play “Tutti Frutti” and try to sing along in the words of Paris-based Original Music: A wop bop loo a bop a lop… wtf??? French much, are you – you frog eating, beret wearing, baguette clutching mongos? Stick to blue and white striped shirts like the cliches you are!
