What’s in a Name?

I have several things to say about this shirt. First of all… Dude, you are the co-owner of the new Thai restaurant in Lourmarin, so if you really are part of some far-reaching conspiracy, you have created an excellent cover for yourself. Well done, indeed. Also, your seafood in green curry sauce is delicious. But you have sort of blown your cover by wearing this shirt. You see, when you’re part of a conspiracy of any kind, it’s really the type of enterprise in which the participants shouldn’t wear uniforms, name tags or any type of clothing that identifies them as part of the secret plot. That’s how the guy who shot Kennedy got away: Not wearing a t-shirt that said “I just shot JFK.” That’s common knowledge. All you need to do to remedy the situation is take a seam-ripper to the back of your shirt and remove the lettering. It may look a little ragged. And as a garment, it will still violate several fashion regulations. But you can’t get arrested for that. But then again, this is France. Maybe you can.

  1. No. This is a clever man. His intelligence is absolutely diabolical. His wit is subtle. Sure, that’s a formidable message he bears, but he casts it against a plaid shirt, enabling him to hide in plain sight! Recognizable to his friends, invisible to his enemies.
    The seafood in green curry sauce may tempt, but always beware…

  2. You’re right, Aubrey! It’s just like in “Once Upon a Time in Mexico” when Johnny Depp’s FBI agent character walks around town in a t-shirt that says “FBI” on it. Genius.

  3. Lisa, the reason they didn’t mess with Johnny Depp is because nobody in Mexico dares challenge the authority of the Female Body Inspector.But on your post: what ELSE do you know about the Kennedy shooting that we don’t?
