Flintoids Forever

When I was growing up in Flint, Michigan, that is the only Flint-centric thing I remember anyone saying. Flintoids Forever! People who are from Flint tend to have a weirdly strong loyalty to it, myself included. But to be honest, it's not the easiest place to have a pride-filled slogan about. What are we supposed to say? Flint! It's where Bob Eubanks was spawned! Or how about Flint: we make cars, or we used to, anyway! Or how about Flint, remember when we had that awesome sit-down strike?

There are people out there trying their best to come up with something better.

There are those that celebrate...our area code.

Hey, why not? It's a DAMN FINE area code!

There are those that celebrate...our population!

This one makes me strangely nostalgic for some reason.

There are those that celebrate...the fact that we live in a place shaped like an appendage!

It's us and Italy, yo. Do people from Italy point at their legs to show where they live?

But a lot of them? Are like this.

Or like this...

And my personal favorite.

I so totally need this one. It's SO ME.

Flintoids Forever!

I'm out,

Are there no t-shirts celebrating Michael Moore? Isn't he from there? Maybe?

Or would there be a baseball cap celebrating him instead?

haha, that last T shirt was awesome.

Be careful now, youre slowly but surely revealing more about yourself!

You used to call Flint "the midwest" for the longest time ever!

Ba ha ha ha, I like the second last one. Maybe I'll get one made for Moncton.

As a former Flintoid myself, I really appreciated those shirts! Did you see Semi Pro?
