Bueller? Bueller?

Reason #5,371 Why I Love Target: They sell stuff like this.

(For the record, we picked up the shirt, not the kid, from Target.)

My son wore this little gem proudly to preschool the other day.  The shirt did cause a bit of an awkward moment when I picked Chip up later in the day, though.  When his teacher asked me, “Who’s Ferris?” I realized the movie was probably a little before her time.  The whole experience made me feel, well, a little old.

If you don’t know the story of what happened to Ferris Bueller, I’ll give you the rundown.  My best friend’s sister’s boyfriend’s brother’s girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who’s going with the girl who saw Ferris pass out at 31 Flavors last night.

I guess it’s pretty serious.

If you want to donate, a group of us are collecting money to buy Ferris Bueller a new kidney. They run about 50 G’s, so if you wouldn’t mind helping out…

Or, you can just go pick up a shirt at your local Target to show support for the cause.  The shirts are pretty choice, if you ask me.  If you have the means (or an extra $8), I highly recommend picking one up.

  1. If you were closer, I’d run, phoebe-style, to your place and scoop you up and rock you like baby.


    Awesome. Awesome, awesome, awesome.


    1. Me too!!! Love, love, LOVE this!!

      I must go to Target….but I know I can’t squeeze into a little kid’s shirt.

      This will have me smiling all day!


  2. 1- that poor teacher…I hope she fixes her lack of knowledge soon. She & her parents should be ashamed.

    2- heading to target now

    1. I was just going to say the same thing about our Target-less state. Though they are expected to be coming by 2013 I believe (they’re taking over the Zellers-es).

      And I’m so bummed there’s adults out there who honestly don’t know who Ferris is. That just makes me feel old.

  3. that. Is. AWESOME. I love putting graphic tees on kids/babies.

    It is sad when the youngins don’t understand cultural references like this. It’s like when we had to explain Golden Girls to one of our interns one time. #sad

  4. I must get that shirt. And I can’t believe someone doesn’t know who Ferris Bueller is, especially with all the repeats they still show on cable all the time.

  5. Who doesn’t know Ferris Bueller? I mean, yeah, it was the 80’s BUT STILL! I’m sure she knows “Sex In The City”…hellow? Mr. Sarah-Jessica Parker?

    That is a cute Tee. And the little guy wearing it, too. I’d look for those at Target – the tee shirt that is, I know they don’t sell little guys there. Well, we have one in Flushing now, so maybe, but none as cute as yours.

  6. See you’re not old because *I* remember that movie (which came out practically yesterday, BTW) and if *I’m* not old, well – *you’re* not old either.

  7. I find the best stuff for my kids at Target. I have a bit of an addiction actually.
    The fact that the kid’s teacher didn’t know Ferris? I’m very sad.
