Mr. Natural T-shirt, Get the Right Tool for the Job!

Mn-016 Right Tool for the Job T-shirt
Perhaps Mr. Natural's most famous aphorism was, Mr. Natural sez, "Get the Right Tool for the Job!" — spoken on seeing Flakey Foont unloading a truck full of bowling balls with a pitchfork.

The lost and bumbling Foont was forever seeking out the older and more confident Mr. Natural for nuggets of wisdom. However Natch who was perhaps wiser, and most definitely slier, played Flakey Foont for a fool more often than not.

This Keep On Truckin' Apparel exclusive t-shirt design is available in both conventional and organic cotton tees. In colors: White, Charcoal, Chocolate, City Green, Military Green, Prairie Dust and River Blue (shown here). This week enjoy 15% off, discount applied at checkout, no coupon code required.

Mr. Natural Meets God

Women's MN-025 Tee
Mr. Natural Organics Collection
 Mr. Fred Natural known as "Natch" to his friends, is the creation of the infamous underground comics artist Robert Crumb.

Mr. Natural a con-man and huckster, embraced the new age of Aquarius and it's flower laden children in the 1960's, metamorphosing himself into a new age mystic and spiritual leader. Sought out by would be disciples looking for the answer to that eternal question: "What does it all mean?", he has been heard to grumble that "It don't mean sheeet."

Mr. Natural & Flakey Foont
Mr. Naturals straight talking, no nonsense approach to life has on occasion gotten him into trouble, like the time he visited heaven, and while God was showing him around he commented to the Almighty that he found the whole scene (heaven) just a little bit corny. After this comment Natch found himself exiting heaven rather abruptly. But always philosophical, he asks "Who wants to go to heaven anyway!?"

This exclusive Keep On Truckin Apparel t-shirt design is on sale this week, and available in both Women's and Men's short and long sleeve tees. No coupon code required, discount will be applied at Checkout.
