A dangerous game...

I have a somewhat wallet-damaging addiction to buying witty t-shirts.

Seriously. I own 22 and have another 7 coming. Er. Threadless loves me.

It's so bad, in fact, that I've been hemming and hawwing over buying this shirt for the past half hour.

You see, "cherry" doesn't rhyme with "fairy" when I say it. It rhymes with ferry, very, berry and sherry. But not fairy. Not at all. And "Montana" doesn't rhyme with "banana" in my accent either. So, whilst I adore the idea, the execution isn't quite perfect. And this bugs me.

Solutions to this debacle:

a) step away from the online store. Just go. Run, if needs must.
b) buy it and then adopt an American accent whenever wearing said shirt.
c) deliberately mispronounce all words, thereby rendering the message of the shirt null and void.
d) create a knock-off with accent-appropriate replacements.
e) RUN AWAY FROM THE ONLINE STORE, YOU CRAZY ADDICT.
