Instead of bemoaning this "Will shag for beer" T-shirt...

... that's too easy... let's make up theories according to which it's a brilliant idea to wear it.

I'll practice catching baseballs in the outfield if someone gives me beer, too.

she like to install carpet?

Not every reference to shag comes from Austin Powers -- I did suggest going to Myrtle Beach.

Here's from the home of shag:

When the beer is VERY GOOD and you-know-what on offer is VERY BAD.

AllenS said...

I can turn your beer into urine for free.

WV: sprosch

Which means: look out after about 6 of 'em!

Big Mike said...

If she's a Wisconsin co-ed, then the wording is redundant.

paul a'barge said...

ohhh kayyyyy.

Let's see.

I'm a middle aged woman with bad hair and I'm so overweight that all articles of my clothing must be black, even in the summer time. I haven't been shagged in time periods measured in decades.

I think I'll buy a T shirt that advertises just how desperate I am.

Right.

MadisonMan said...

At least it's not plastered on her no doubt enormous bosom. Most people walking towards her will never see the offer. Unless the front of the shirt advertises the back.

Bissage said...

She'd attract a better class of offeree if it said "Warble Fog Relish."

Texas Tom said...

Madamozell from Armantiers
Hasn't been shagged in forty years.
Hinky-dinky parley voo!

Triangle Man said...

Having attended every Brat Fest since it's inception, she had no doubt encountered the common situation whereby someone passed her by and wondered "what would it take to get her in the sack" only to have them then give up, assuming that they lacked the means to swiftly convince her of a roll in the hay before the crowds swept them both away never to be seen again. In 2009 her therapist convinced her to take inventory of her desires and just "go for it".

Let's also notice the size of the bag she is carrying. A bag that big shrieks insanity.

She's environmentally sensitive
Give credit where credit is due.
The bag is for the empties which also lets her keep score.

Unless she's a cotton picker, looking for work.

hey, does anyone know if they still grow tobacco in Wisconsin? Tobacco farming figures in the classic Rascal.

SteveR said...

For Beer? Wow, I didn't know it was that diificult.

traditionalguy said...

Perhaps she likes dancing to beach music to work off the extra pounds put on by the brews. I bet she is an experienced dancer. Then again, maybe she is only suggesting that she dances on the first date.

Leland said...

Amusing the STAFF is also looking at "Will shag for beer" and perhaps contemplating what it means, and if it is worthy of inquiry.

bearbee said...

A guy named Will Shag wants beer?

Is Madison dry?

my15minutes said...

If she's from SC, it makes perfect sense. The shag is our state dance. Kinda like swing, but better. So Mark Sanford may have spotted her, mistaken the message, and offered her a beer up on the Appalachian Trail.

rhhardin said...

She's advertising "fun person."

t-man said...

I assumed the bag was full of condoms.

WV: avoditat - an avocado with two tatoos

Penny said...

American's are rediscovering bartering, and as Martha Stewart says, that's a good thing.

traditionalguy said...

Planned Parenthood will not like seeing this going on among the childbearing age group of females. They really believe that this planet is littered with too many lovable humans already.

t-man said...

She's encouraging responsible environmental behavior. The front says: "Won't shag for bottled water".

rhhardin said...

A lot of misreading is going on.

She's making no claim to like sex.

She claims only to like beer.

paul a'barge said...

I'm down in Texas where we grow cotton.

She's no cotton picker. None of those people are fat.

WV:aultutro - ?huh?

ricpic said...

Whore Here would capture my heart.

David said...

Smut-gigglers, in South Carolina the Shag is a dance. Or a carpet. In South Carolina neither have gone out of style. [Insert Governor joke here.]

Ralph L said...

She could be a blind woman (explains the hair), and a "friend" gave her the shirt.

cophorch - a similar negotiation with the police.

bearbee said...

She claims only to like beer.

Makes no such claim. Beer maybe for her alcoholic mother or drunken boyfriend

wv - honyhal: affectionate name for drunken boyfriend.

dbp said...

If this woman likes beer, sex or both, then it is a brilliant idea to wear this shirt.

There are plenty of other marginally attractive women around too and they may or may not be as easy as this one claims to be. Her advertisement--to the extent it is believed--allows potential partners to focus their energies where they have a high chance of success.

wv samecher She does not seem to age, hence she seems the same decade after decade.

Jason (the commenter) said...

Brilliant?

She's got a job interview at a brewery.

She works around very attractive women (models).

Steven said...

She works for a company that lays carpet, and the purpose of the shirt is to advertise.

blake said...

No, assuming she's a "rational actor", which I think is being called into question, she's saying that the cost (including opportunity cost) of providing the advertised service is worth less to her than the value of the received good.

She might like providing the service as much (or more) than receiving the good. This may be a clever ploy to receive a desired good in exchange for something one wants to do anyway.

One has to wonder how good the service is, however: One would presume it couldn't be traded on the open market for the price of the beer she's willing to exchange for it.

wv: serocker -- I'll be the judge of that.

Freeman Hunt said...

Maybe she cuts hair.

JAL said...

FLS has it right.

She's from South (or North) Carolina.

Shagging to beach music -- especially at The Beach (Myrtle) predates silly Austin Powers.

WV priyent
Result of mating a Prius and a yent

kentuckyliz said...
