Mule Design came out with this Web 2.0/Kool-Aid mashup t-shirt. But why? Simply to express their enthusiasm for the state of the net by conflating Web 2.0 and delicious fruity powders that turn into refreshing beverages?
Nope. I’m pretty sure this is a highly niche geek product aimed at those of us who remember Steve Rubel’s much-cited blog post from last fall entitled The Web 2.0 World is Skunk Drunk on Its Own Kool-Aid. And Rubel, of course, was using the Jonestown massacre metaphor in his title. I could go on, but at this point it’s all getting much too meta for me.
Anyway, did you ever notice how Kool-Aid man has a crewcut made of ice cubes? I didn’t until just now. So: T-shirt! Kool-Aid! Web 2.0! Yaaaaaaay! Get one for $20 at Mule Design, and don’t worry, I don’t think anyone will get the reference.
