Best. T-shirt. Ever.

Today I saw pretty much the best T-shirt ever. A young faculty member on the shuttle, a plain white T with iron-on letters...

Reviewer #2:
I'll see you in the parking lot


I can only imagine that the guy's grad students gifted him this homemade treasure. I think I might commission one for Dr. Isis.

I'm absolutely going to steal that. My advisor and I just recently got a scathing review from our second reviewer. It was also unprofessional in that he attacked us personally. Too bad my advisor is from Europe and probably wouldn't understand the joke without me explaining it to him. Won't stop me from making a shirt for me!

I totally didn't get it until i read the comments. I thought - hm, the reviewer is from the same school and so they can meet in the parking lot? I didn't think that would be common, so I had to read the comments to see if they could explain it to me.

So, uh, it's referencing a fist fight because people take fights to parking lots? Out in those parts of the country (read: everywhere but the major metropolitan areas) where parking lots exist and are right outside of establishments in which people start fighting? Is that right?

Also, y'all know you can get anything you want printed on a shirt, even ordering only one, for fairly cheap and no hassle at all at any of the many web-based print on demand services, right? Check Cafepress, Zazzle, Spreadshirt, etc.

Yup. The idea is that Reviewer #2 was a jerk, and that the PI is going to beat him up in the parking lot after work...
