Hunter S. Thompson T-Shirt

Epicdelusion Clothing Company is well known for being fans of Hunter S. Thompson.  "When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro" is a Hunter S. Thompson Quote.  I find this quote to be quite accurate in a number of ways. Take for example, a 23-year-old college student who has recently ingested a large quantity of psychedelic drugs. A 'regular' person in society undergoing that type of extreme mental shift in their perception may be cause for panic, alarm and disorientation. Our weirdo college friend is handling the trip with euphoric resplendence aka like a boss. Things are weird, but they're about to get weirder. His buddy, who has ingested an even larger quantity, has lost control and has decided it's an opportune time to experiment with his paints (they're art school kids). Before much more time has passed, the buddy of our professional weirdo is covered in paint, raving about how he's been stuck in the apartment for years and is visibly frantic. So what does our pro do? Does he call the police? Does he get medical attention right away? Nah, he gently reminds his buddy that he has taken a large quantity of psychedelic drugs and that he'll be okay soon.  He pours his buddy a shot of liquor to take the panic away, rolls a joint, throws on some chill music and his buddy quickly returns to being relaxed and having a good time.  Which lends a lot of credibility to the statement "When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro".


Thanks for stopping by Epicdelusion! Cheers!
