Ghetto Blaster

I had such a great time at the North Pole last week. Santa kept me very busy, but he told me I could share some of my projects with you this week. There's a distinct possibility that I'm the only person in the world who will find this one funny, but a couple guys in my life are receiving this ghetto blaster shirt that I made. Under the image, there's a dictionary-style definition of "ghetto blaster," (I adapted from urbandictionary.com) which reads:

ghetto blaster: n., a portable radio cassette player. It is played especially outdoors at loud volumes and carried on one shoulder with loudspeakers facing the head. It is assumed that bypassers share the same musical taste.

In case you missed that decade, think the opening of Fresh Prince, "...when a couple a guys who were up to no good started makin' trouble in my neighborhood. I got in one little fight and my ma got scared. She said 'you're movin with your auntie and uncle in Bel Air..." (Those guys who "were up to no good" were all sitting around a ghetto blaster on the playground.) Oh, the 90's. So I hope these two guys enjoy my ode to the 90's when they open their gifts on Christmas morning. If this one goes well, I may make an entire urban dictionary series. Just imagine the possibilities. :)
