When I was in High School, my buddy Ryan helped me to record hundreds of albums onto cassette tapes. At first, they were Memorex, then later, TDK, with a few BASF thrown in here and there, whatever was on sale and was "chrome" I'd buy in bulk. I'd purchased enough Memorex tapes and saved enough "proof of purchase symbols" (before bar codes were place on any product) that I got a free mail order Memorex T Shirt, which I wore for about 20 years before it finally fell apart with rotted out arm pits and a rip across the stomach where I caught it on some sheet metal. DDF was very happy the day that T shirt finally went into the box of rags.
Mr Bubble (Makes getting clean almost as much fun as getting dirty), and the Kraft Macaroni & Cheese Cheesasaurus T shirts I got in the late 80s, as a young father, I got matching large and child sizes, so that my son and I could wear matching shirts. Those lasted through the Clinton Administration, but not into the Bush years.
