Dear Raygun,

I have a great idea for a t-shirt! I also need money. Please make a shirt that says, “Iowa got 99 counties but Bitch ain’t one of them.”

You can just send the royalty checks to the above address.

If you have already made this shirt I wear an extra large. Please just invoice me and I will pay when I can (unless you charge too much).

Chris: Thanks for the letter about the “99 counties” idea.  We actually sell them for $20 in store and on our site.  Good luck with the money shortage!  -Mike @raygun

Scan of the letter from Raygun


I like postcards as much as the next guy (hint hint), but I much prefer letters (hint hint!).

I’m a bit confused by this response. I did look on the site first, so I wasn’t setting out to tell Raygun their own joke, but I still can’t find it on the site. I’m probably just an idiot.

I did google the phrase and I found pictures of this shirt, and references to it, but I don’t see it on the site.

Oh well, I was only kidding about wanting one. I do like Raygun’s shirts, and I love an Iowa success story, so do me a favor and check them out!
