Sincerest form of flattery?

More years ago that he probably cares to remember, mr. combo was Regalia Officer in the MZ Riders Club. One of his most inventive designs for a t-shirt was the famous 'I love the smell of two-stroke in the morning'.

This was a play on the line from the film Apocalypse Now, ' I love the smell of napalm in the morning', and the design proved popular.
I was looking on the Web for a picture of this T-shirt and typed 'I love the smell of two-stroke t-shirt' into a search engine, and what should I find? Two companies selling t-shirts with the same wording! I hope they're paying mr. combo a commission - you know that if he stole one of their designs they would let him know soon enough!

Exhibit A:




Exhibit B:




The reason I was looking for the t-shirt was that I found another product for two stroke owners. Now that the weather's getting starting to get a bit wet and cold, two stroke owners can get their 'fix' without going out on their bikes!

Two stroke flavoured scented candles


Enjoy the scent of your two stroke without having to leave the comfort of your living room ! Mmmmm!

  1. Damn. To add insult to injury, the red/white one even uses a similar font to the ones I had done. No, no one is paying me a cent. I should sue, and hope that Francis Ford Coppola is too busy to sue me in return for nicking a line from his movie :)
