UPDATE: Lapeer Resale Shop ‘Party’ Shirt Finds a Home — Sense of Humor is Alive & Well
If you were following the drama in Lapeer created by a single shirt at a resale shop, you will be happy to know that it has found a home.
If you remember, about a week ago, there was a Facebook post from a Lapeer resident calling attention to the hilariously offensive shirt in the Lapeer Goodwill. I did a story about it as well, hoping that I could go snap it up. Well, someone beat me to it, Jo Ann Grawey Lopp of Lapeer.
I received a call from the original poster, Chris Pender, letting me know that the shirt was purchased by Jo Ann. I immediately friended her on Facebook because, of course she has a great sense of humor. I asked her about the shirt and how she's strutting around town with it.
Me: Want to go meet up and go have coffee? I know what you can wear. Is it okay if I name you as the owner of the best t-shirt on the planet right now?
Jo Ann: Lol. Absolutely.
Me: Awesome! Do you happen to have a photo of you wearing the shirt I could use?
Jo Ann: Oh god no lol ... it's a medium and I'm an xl
Me: Oh got ya, so you bought it to frame rather than wear. I get it.
Jo Ann: Lmao.. I went to get it because it was a very big deal and I thought it was hilarious.
Jo Ann is right. It was hilarious and I am so glad to find out that the shirt went to a person who is going to treat it right. Hopefully, if you go into Jo Ann's house it will be hanging from the rafters in honor of a great day at Goodwill.
A day where people all over Lapeer converged on a Goodwill to bring home the best shirt in the land. But there was only one victor: Jo Ann Grawey Lopp.
