Blood Brother

A text message from my friend Hester:

Just passed a nerdy dude wearing a shirt that said “I’m a Keeper.” Is that something other than a gross device for catching my period?

Thanks for the offer, guy!

Oh, I can picture it now....I am sure that the conversation must have gone something like this.

"Like ohhh mmmyyy gawddd! Like he was like sooo much a nerd. And wait, like I am texting you the gawd's honest truth, he like had this nerdy shirt that was like sooo uncool. I was like, hey nerd like what do you want to catch? my period or something or whattt??? LOL! I would send you a picture of him but I like have filled my phone with pictures of the cutest shoes! And that hot shoe salesman. Now he can catch my feet anytime! Got to go, Hester"

@4:

Duh...it's a reference to a goal keeper in soccer. You were obviously passed up when picking sides for sports in PE.

Nerd.

Uh, no it's not. It's referring to his suitability as a long-term mate. It's from fishing, where a "keeper" is one nice enough (i.e., within the legal size limit) to keep, as opposed to throwing back in the water.

Or maybe he's a Promisekeeper? Do you have to already be married to be one of those?

This post confuses me. How would anybody understand that shirt as anything other than what Fnarf said?

As in "he's a keeper", meaning, he's a good guy and you should continue dating him.

Googled it for fun...found one for goalies, one based of fnarf's long term mate definition, and one about fish in the top three. Everyone is right. Except Hester and Lindy.

@ everyone:

Now I'm confused. What are you guys talking about? This man's t-shirt could obviously refer to nothing but a menstruating hippie's rubber vagina cup. I've never heard of soccer but it sounds stupid.

Goalkeepers are hot. Crazy, but hot.

He's obviously a Quidditch player.

I'm a chaser, myself.

If any of my wives ever touched theirselves that sort of way to put one of those satan devices in them, they'd never see the age of 13.

What about a keeper of animals? Does anyone need to Google that?

Also, why is everyone assuming "keeper" refers to a soccer goalie, hmmm? Can't a "keeper" also refer to a hockey or lacrosse net minder? The prejudice here had now reached a new level. It sickens me to be a part of this obviously soccer biased discussion.

my friend has one of those shirts, obviously it is referring to the nasty vagina cup thing, since his shirt is also RED

I think I'll make a few, just saying "Keeper."

Anyone want to buy one? I can have them out this week.
