Brad Pitt for Mayor - Navy Tee
"Brad Pitt for Mayor" is printed by hand on a navy blue 100% cotton, made in the USA, sweatshop-free American Apparel t-shirt with white ink. The unisex tee shirt fits slightly smaller than regular men's tee shirt and the female-cut tee shirt runs very small. For example, a female XL tee shirt is about the same size as a unisex medium tee shirt (although the cuts are different). Click here to see the sizing charts and descriptions of the cuts.

**13 Reasons why Brad Pitt should be the next Mayor of New Orleans**
by Dr. Thomas Bayer
New Orleans will elect a new mayor on April 22, 2010, and the Brad Pitt for Mayor Campaign Steering Committee is asking you to vote for Brad Pitt. After extensive polling, focus group discussions and soul searching, the steering committee, headed by Dr. Thomas M. Bayer of Tulane University, decided upon thirteen reasons why the Crescent City would be best served with Brad Pitt as Mayor.
Reason #1 - He's Qualified
Rather than having to make vague and unpersuasive connections between clearly unrelated qualifications such as, say, franchise executive and governing abilities, the qualifications of our candidate are plainly obvious: as the worldwide audience of Homer’s Troy can attest, Mr. Brad Pitt clearly has the stomach for the job, not to mention the shoulders to carry the burden of governance.
Reason #2 - NOLA ♥'s Brad Pitt
By bestowing the great office of Mayor of our city upon Mr. Pitt, we, the citizens, are afforded the opportunity to say thanks for the many wonderful things this gentleman has already done for us. What better way to show our heart-felt appreciation than to present to him the mayoral office, the patronage trough, the cornucopia of our great city, that which we hold so dear and is ours to bequeath?
Reason #3 - Lagniappe
If we elect Brad Pitt mayor, Angelina Jolie would be the First Lady of New Orleans.
Reason #4 - Technology and Gastronomy
Instead of technology executives vying for malfunctioning anti-crime camera installation contracts and lap dances, movie moguls from everywhere will lobby the mayor to get a table on Galatoire’s ground floor for the Friday before Mardi Gras all-afternoon lunch.
Reason #5 - Publicity
Publicity and photo opportunities will chase our Mayor, instead of the Mayor chasing publicity and photo opportunities.
Reason #6 - Urban Planning
We will not have to rename a street to honor his name, as Pitt Street already exists.
Reason #7 - City Council Relations
Stacy Head will be nice to the new Mayor.
Reason #8 - Economics
Instead of executive travel expenses depleting our budget, the city’s coffers will be filled through generous personal appearance fees earned by Mr. Pitt as our elected leader and ambassador.
Reason #9 - Convention Business
New Orleans will become the magnet for conventions of professional women’s organizations worldwide. The warm glow of pink Cadillacs will illuminate our Southern nights. This mass of sensually charged femininity will attract male visitors eager to contribute their economic stimulus.
Reason #10 - Jazz Fest
Instead of being greeted by the ubiquitous presence of Shell (God bless them!), visitors to Jazz Fest will be welcomed at the main entrance by our Mayor enthroned on the King of Rex Float, officiated by his Secretary of Music, Quint Davis.
Reason #11 - Rebuilding
Rather than relying on Aussie eloquence and narrative creativity or malfunctioning federal and state agencies, Mr. Pitt, as our chief executive will, instead, lead us, the local Pittwomen and Pittmen, in the fight against blight, crime, poverty and lack of humor. Dressed in period costumes and assisted by experienced producers, set builders, make-up artists, and camera operators, this cast of thousands will launch our Renaissance epic in weekly reality sequels.
Reason #12 - Transparency
Instead of having to sue for the release of public records, or to attempt to restore accidentally deleted emails, we can learn everything about our first executive from the pages of the National Enquirer and People Magazine.
Reason #13 - Integrity
Rather than governing our city to achieve fortune, fame and a book deal, our candidate already has achieved fortune, fame and MOVIE deals.
WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THIS item?
Most Storyville tees are printed on 100% cotton, American Apparel brand tee shirts. These shirts are not pre-shrunk, so they will shrink if they are placed in the dryer. The unisex-cut American Apparel tee shirt is cut like a traditional men's tee shirt, although it runs about a half size smaller than Hane's, Fruit of the Loom or Gildan brand t-shirts. The female cut American Apparel tee shirt is significantly smaller than the unisex cut (a female XL tee is about the same size as a unisex medium tee). Compared to the unisex cut, the female cut tee also has smaller sleeves, is more narrow in the torso and is shorter in length.
If a product is printed on something other than a 100% cotton American Apparel t-shirt, it will be noted on the product page. Below are the sizing charts for the unisex cut and female-specific cut American Apparel crew t-shirts.
