your kid can be a cartoon character now wearing the same shirt every day
or don't tell the kid you have 20 shirts and replace it as it gets worn out. the kid will think this shirt lasts forever.
Hope he never grows
Just keep the kid in his box and only bring him out on special occasions. Increases the longevity exponentially
Don’t kids tend to outgrow clothes before they wear them out?
The Peter Pan of shirts.
Kids grow usually!
This was the very first thing I thought. I had a flashback right to that Doug episode.
Oh fuuuuck I remember that
Someone once said this to me. Said I was like a cartoon character because I wore the same shit all the time. That one woke me up a little, but then I never cared enough to change. Flannels and jeans bitch.
Having a stack of backup shirts for a little kid doesn't seem like the worst idea. They love to ruin clothes.
That was actually something that always intrigued me as a kid: Having a distinct look that easily identified you. I don't wear the same clothes every day, but I do have a very similar wardrobe and haven't changed my facial jewelry for new ones in years.
My folks once ordered a set of 8 chairs for a dining room table. They delivered 15 of the wrong kind of chair, both the wrong kind and twice as many as they ordered.
....and then delivered the last wrong one a few days later, so I must give them credit for commitment.
How can this be profitable for the shirt company?
This is a Florida Gators shirt, a college football team. It's a really popular college team and they make a fuck load of money off it. Plus it's not like the organization have to pay the players so ay, what's a few bucks lost
Some people that attended school there did. They offered the school a cut and they said “nah, we cool”. Then it took off and the school shed them because they had used school equipment to make the original thing....so now the school owns it...
The school gets 20% royalties. It's owned by Pepsi.
Most people know that the University of Florida produced Gatorade, but what they DON'T know is that Florida State University produced a sports drink too, but they pulled it off the market when "Seminole Fluid" wasn't selling very well.
Yeah, two boys was caught fuckin’ gators and tha rest was history.
They pay the players in scholarships. My education was over $100,000 for four years so don't tell me not having to pay for school is anything like "not getting paid".
Yeah that works if you're super super good and manage to get into one of the top 120 colleges in the country (in football team ranking). If you do that you're guaranteed a full ride.
But for the rest of the schools not in that top division, not all those guys have full scholarships. Some players do, some players have only partial scholarships, and some get none at all. Many schools (all schools in the lowest and largest division) actually offer no scholarships at all.
But all these schools still make good money from their football programs
I mean even if players were paid, would anyone really expect players of division 2 or 3 schools to get paid?
Yeah, why shouldn't you? You do a job for the school and generate them money. That's like telling a student who works at a residency building "all you're doing is sitting at a desk checking people out before you permit them into dorms for a few hours a day, do you really expect to be paid?"
But they are paid, because it's a job and they become employees of the school. Not sure why football is any different you gotta put a ton of time in and you generate income for the school
Also NCAA rules stipulate that a player is not allowed to have a job during their sport season. So they straight up don't let these kids work, and require school permission to work over summer... maybe they should be paid
Also NCAA rules stipulate that a player is not allowed to have a job during their sport season
That's not true. It's just the reason for you being hired at a job can't be because of your status as an athlete. (You can't give tennis lessons as a tennis player for example) Source: Former NCAA athlete that had a job.
It is however difficult as fuck to hold a job, do well in school, and perform well at your sport. I'd say pick two of three.
I'm finding a lot of various info so it seems like this is a school to school thing now. It was the rule you could not work for a while but the NCAA has changed that. They do however still have a lot of rules when it comes to students working.
Now, some schools will allow student athletes to work under the conditions that they are allowed to monitor it. So students can work as long as the school is allowed to see what they do, what their pay is, their hours, etc..
But most schools don't like that hassle so they will only allow student athletes to work on campus where they can control pay rate, tasks, and hours. So it's like yeah you can have a job, here's your 12 hour work schedule at minimum wage. That's not really the same grounds everybody else is on
This is only related to part time work however. They can't work full time to my knowledge. So this still obviously has a major role in how they can work and prevents them from making money.
No way your education was 100,000 at the University of Florida unless maybe you paid out of state tuition. For 4 years it’s closer to 40-50k.
there are athletes much much better than you are, who should be pro already but instead, sell millions of dollars in tickets and merch for a school. and they get a 100k degree and thats it.
Right? So many athletes wouldn't be at these top schools if it weren't for scholarships or even giving them the time and attention to become athletes.
That's how the mafia works
I doubt this was intentional, it seems more like a shipping error
How can that be popular for Frito-Lay?

I once ordered a 4-pack of chapstick from Amazon for 6 bucks, and they sent me 4 cases by mistake.
I now have chapstick for life.
I had this happen with a 4-in-1 screwdriver, so now I have screwdrivers for life. Pretty cool and I've given some away
Quantity > Quality.
Why is the gator so angry you ask? It’s because he has all them teeth and no toothbrush.
If you can’t sell them, perhaps you could donate them to a local women’s shelter. I imagine they often have women with young children that might need some new clothes.
A girlfriend bought me a space blanket for my emergency shelter. They sent her a case. She had no idea why I was so excited about her $5 stocking stuffer.
I love how every gator fan says go gators. My brother was living in Pennsylvania and found another gators fan and when they said it everyone around them stopped and said "wait, you guys ACTUALLY do that?". GO Gators.
Spent 3 years out near Seattle and during my total of 4 trips into the city, 3 separate people saw my Gator sweatshirt and yelled at me as we passed each other "GO GATORS" and of course I yelled it right back.
Yeah man, gotta give the Go Gators!
Go write the great American Novel
Was vacationing in Boston and wore my Gators cap the whole time. A guy working in James Hook & Co. said “Go Gators!”. I paused a second before replying, it was so unexpected but a great memory!
I don't understand the joke... Why is it funny to say "Go Gators"? Don't other teams say "Go Bucks" or "Go Bearcats" etc?
They do, but the university of Florida ran ads before games that essentially boiled down to people saying "go do something successful" to each other until it ended on someone saying "go gators". That or it comes from the gators fight song where the fight song ends with go gators. It's kinda a tradition greeting that Florida fans embraced. Kinda like LSU fans spelling go geaux.
OK thanks... Just moved to FL the in July, so I didn't know the joke
I was in DC and ran into another Michigan State fan/alum? Regardless, upon seeing one another he said “Go Green” and received the appropriate “Go White” response. ¯\(ツ)/¯
This is how gangs are formed
'If you like the shirt so much, you sell them.'
That's a damn fine looking shirt!
Time to start a soccer team.
Yep. Or cub scout den, baseball team, robotics team...
...or donate the extra shirts to one of those types of clubs.
The F for respect aligator
What size are they? I may be willing to buy one off you
4T. They will fit my kid for exactly one year, so I probably could spare one.
Sell em. How much?
I have a nephew who would love one, how much?
Damn, I need a 5t. But, sell them to a consignment shop (once upon a child is one) and make back some of the money you spent on the one.
I don’t think I know anybody near that size, all of them are too old. But thank you!
I have a toddler, I’ll take one if you are selling, should be able to use pirateship for cheap shipping, PM me if you still have one :-)
Go Gators! Love that old school logo
We do this all the time at our warehouse. Pickers pull cases instead of taking the time to read their scanner and open it for singles.
I was thinking the empty warehouse shelf space created by getting rid of the last 19 of these tees outweighed the cost of giving them away. Old inventory just eating up space. Someone was probably trying to make room in the warehouse for some nfl playoff tees or something like that. Or Clemson BCS champs tees.
Go write the great American novel
They were paying their respects.
I’ll take a few off your hands! Go gators! ;)
I guess you gotta have 19 more kids now.
Well isnt it great to be a Florida Gator
Go Gators ( In my Scottish accent)
I'm going to upvote this. Not because I like the Gators, I hate the Gators (Florida State fan). but because it's dope as shit that you got 20 of them.
Go gators! You can resell the rest on postmark app!
Go Gators! Go start an online store!
these guys business.
GO GATORS!!! 🐊🐊🐊
One for every day of the year.
“Ah man we need to compensate this customer who got their shit really late... think he’ll like, just, a bunch more of the same item? That’s equivalent right??? Throw em in there”
Did you order it from footlocker.com?
The arm day Albert is the second best logo right behind the “Pell” logo
Can start your own little league now
The only shirt your kid will ever need.
To bad they’ll outgrow them in a year
It took a long time to arrive but when it did it was amazing and unexpected, like the Florida vs Kentucky football game this year.
Party favors for his birthday!
On the fifth day of Christmas my true love gave to me:
THE SAME FREA-KIN SHIRT
too late, too wenty...
At least it 20 Gators and not 20 Noles
Lemme git 1
Not only did they send 20, but someone pranked you and actually sent Florida Gator shirts. Yuck.
Can't have too many Albert shirts. Go Gators!
Great. Plenty more to burn then.
Go Gators! I’ll take an XL
Sorry only have 4T, maybe could sew 10 of em together? But Go Gators!
If you weren't sure, the bag is not a toy SMFH...
Enough tshirts to last until his 18, score
I like to think a guy had to click a button to send your order, but the page froze so he just started spam-fucking it
meanwhile my mario kart has been shipping from gamestop since 12/11...
How does this happen. Or did they send 20 in apology?
Loot bag swag
weird, but very fun
Why not Gamecocks?
This reminds me of the time I ordered 6 packs of Magic The Gathering 9th Edition and was accidentally sent 6 boxes. That was a good.
AM I TOO LATE FOR PAY RESPECTS MEME?
I am too late for pay respects meme =|
Quantity over quality, no?
Unfortunately they sent 20 of the wrong shirt. ;)
I bought that same shirt at the Gator store over xmas.
This shirt looks cool af, I want it
No one suggested this yet, but make a quilt, or a blanket. When I was a kid my mom made a quilt out of a dog shirt I liked that depicted my dog.
I never really used it.. but I still have it..
This is great, I had walmart do a similar mess up, I ordered a tank top and they sent me 3 of them. it was a roll back thing and it only cost me $1.50 for the tank top itself. So not a great loss to walmart overall but still.
Just enOugh foR nexT seaSon.
tell kid its a magic shirt that will be reborn every week, and hide the used ones
Go gators though!
Now buy him 20 pairs of the same shorts and he can dress like a cartoon character for the rest of his childhood.
Plot twist. OP ordered a seminoles shirt.
Aaaand I'll buy one of of you.
This is getting out of hand, now there are 20 of them!
Now you have enough shirts to outfit a planeful of young gator fans: https://youtu.be/3I0K-ymOTS4
(I’m not a Florida fan, this movie was so-so, but for some reason the running gag and scene at the end cracks me up big time.)
Did you pay for twenty?
Then organise a party for the little one and have the t-shirts as the party dress code.
Give him a new one every year for the next 20 years 😂
Normally I would say go noles but that makes me physically ill to say this year
Did you have to pay for all of them or just one?
Apple once fucked up our order.
Ordered a brand new 1st generation IPad off Apple and it was suppose to be arriving in a week.
One month later we get a box from Apple with FIVE 1st Gen IPad. We were still charged for only one.
You now have to have 20 kids and field a Florida gator squad
I ordered one bottle of mouthwash and received a whole case from Amazon. My breath is always fresh now so at least I have that going for me.
