Really, Garry, you had me at “plese.”

June 2nd, 2011 · 60 comments

I asked our submitter if she might be able to snap another photo of this memo/notice — one without the ghostly reflection of the man in the wifebeater — but alas, she says, it has since been taken down and replaced with a new memo offering a $500 reward for information leading to the culprit still vandalizing the elevator.

And yet, now that I’ve spent a little time with this image (in all of its beautiful absurdity), I’ve come to feel that it just wouldn’t feel quite complete without wifebeater man. Because this, my friends, is a work of art.

Plese Stop Drawing Dics in the elevater. Thanx, Garry

      Clearly, the elevater graffiti artists were thinking of the dogs! Everyone knows that dogs appreciate a good dic drawing.

      The look on the wifebeater guys face says a lot.

      ” Sorry Garry, no matter how hard you try to say that these elevator pics aren’t appreciated, but you and me both know that your dog, as well as all the hot chicks that ride this elevator, really like those dics drawings. The nicely drawn dics displayed here are modeled after my own dic! You’re just pissed that my dic is a work of art and you’re just a dude with a dog. You have given me the inspiration to drawn even BIGGER DICS!- Thanx, Wifebeater man.”

      We call those things singlets. I think this conversation has come up on PAN before. A lot less judgment in the term. It’s always interested me, because it’s vest in the U.K, wifebeater in the U.S., and so I don’t know from where that bastard child ‘singlet’ snuck into the Aussie vernacular (well, I did look it up at some point, but can’t remember if I got an answer).

      “Wifebeater” pretty much only refers to the white version. I’m not sure how it came to be, except maybe by association with too many criminals on the “Cops” show. Any other color/pattern and it becomes a “muscle shirt” or “tank top”. Amazing to think there are so many words to describe a shirt made without sleeves.

    • #16.3   Canthz_B bang

      I’ll go with the “Cops” show theory. All too often when called to a domestic disturbance the cops seem to find the guy who beats his wife wearing an athletic shirt, clutching both his can of beer and his beer gut.
      As a result, this has become their team uniform.

      Park, I would guess it might be related to the “doublet”, which started out as a sleeved undershirt, though that evolved into more of a jacket.

      I’ve heard “singlet” used here in the States to refer to sleeveless shirts, but only when worn by runners. Running for a race, that is- if they’re running from the police, it’s still called a wife-beater.

    I wonder how this is related to Thx Sandra? Not that I object to having my favorite submission of all time referenced, but I truly am puzzled. Is this where Casey In Human Resources sent the mens for their big jobs when they had to go real bad and couldn’t use the womens room? Funny how he’d complain about the bathroom graffiti instead of complaining about the elevator being used as a bathroom.

    Is “Garry” the dog or the man? Or are they only know together as Garry (like “Bennifer” or something). I’m going to henceforth imagine that the man is Gary and the dog is Larry.

    I have a faint memory of Dic, pronounced “deek”, popping up as a production company after a show I watched regularly as a child.

    Anyone else remember this? Maybe it’s some veiled reference to a TV character that Garry finds offensive or traumatizing.

    The term “wifebeater” is pretty derogatory. It denegrates a whole class of people. People who wear undershirts. There’s nothing wrong with a wearing a goddamn undershirt!

    This term, along with “white trash,” “trailer trash,” and others tell of certain Americans’ bigoted attitude towards large parts of the population, a large part of the population that they would rather forget about or treat as inferior than actually get to know.

The dog’s name is Tugboat…) – has a pic of him + said dog on his desk and all, and tells tales of its genius to his slaves! :P

    So FOR THE RECORD, Wife Beater Man did NOT draw any “dics”. We spent a good week trying to figure out if this was real or fake, feeling both sympathy and revulsion. I decided the only way for me to overcome the internal conflict was to submit it here. I had no idea his image was reflected!
