Top 5 Food T-Shirts That Don't Cost $85 and Aren't Designed by Alexander Wang
Hot coffee became haute coffee as Starbucks debuted a line of high-fashion t-shirts designed by the likes of Sophie Theallet, Billy Reid and Alexander Wang. The ugliest of the shirts, which cost $85 apiece, is undoubtedly the Wang creation. The theoretically unisex shirt features "a coffee spill illusion of the iconic Starbucks Siren" i.e. an ugly brown splotch running down the left side of the shirt. Squint and you'll notice the Starbucks logo near the midriff.

Perhaps you prefer food-themed shirts that are a touch less self-important or at least ones that don't make you look like a victim of the coffee-ring effect. Here are five shirts from Tee Fury, our newest daily addiction. Sadly, these shirts are less accessible than the Starbucks high-fashion designer line. Tee Fury releases one shirt per day, and after that day, it's gone. We're told they never do reprints. Brilliant and evil, no?
5. Best Served Cold
Tee Fury Best Served Cold...
This mashup of the Brian DePalma thriller Carrie with the classic Campbell's soup can would turn Warhol red with envy that he didn't think of the idea. The story of a mousy girl, bullied by her hyper-religious mom and taunted with tampons by her classmates, begins innocently enough, but turns satisfyingly sinister when she uses her telekinetic powers to wreak vengeance on her tormentors. Revenge, unlike soup, is a dish best served cold.
4. Infinite Bacon

If someone invented this, we would buy it. In a heartbeat. Are you listening, scientists? We know you're busy racing to cure cancer and develop ever better boner pills, but if you could work on transforming crisp, perfectly fried bacon into an infinite loo, we'd appreciate it. Mmmmkay, thx.
3. Canned Zombie

Is this t-shirt proof that the Campbell's soup-can-as-fashion-meme has finally arrived or that it has finally died? Ask Joan Rivers. We don't know. We do know that if you want to turn the tables on those relentless, brain-scavenging bastards, there's nothing that messes with a zombie more than seeing you eat their brains.
