It might be time for most of us to be thinking about reorganising our wardrobes, pulling the bright spring colours from the shelf where they’ve been lurking all winter and getting into short-sleeved T-shirts (even if there’s snow on the ground!) but in Southern California Mountain High Ski resort’s annual spring break celebration this weekend will be offering a different way to get into a T-shirt: The Frozen T-Shirt Contest.   On Saturday, at noon, contestants must break a t-shirt out of a block of ice and put it on before their competitors do – perhaps we should be grateful we only have to shiver a bit and turn the central heating up!  

The People for Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) in Boston have launched an educational T-shirt. To educate men of Irish descent about the link between dairy consumption and impotence the shirt, released to coincide with St. Patrick’s Day features a leprechaun and the words Got Sperm? Maybe Not if You Drink Milk.

PETA’s aim is to inform Hibernians that the cholesterol and fat in milk, meat, and other animal products slows the flow of blood to all the body’s vital organs, not just to the heart. ‘On St. Patrick’s Day, real men are reminded that high performance means choosing a pint of beer over a pint of milk,’ said the Boston PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk.
