There is some clown on eBay.com selling t-shirts with an altered Penn State logo. Instead of reading Penn State, it reads “State Penn.” Further, the Nittany Lion logo has been changed to a shower head in reference to the Sandusky scandal.
You can see the auction listing here: Auction
Apparently the seller’s eBay.com user name is: craigmack55555 (268*)
The seller is obviously not anti-Penn State as he has other t-shirts for sale that are Pro-PSU. One of his other shirts displays Paterno’s likeness and reads “Legends Never Die!” No, its pretty clear that this guy is just out to make some quick cash off of a bad situation.
It is amazing what people will do for money even the worst of situations.
I went to high school with the maker of these shirts. He is a scumbag. Here is his facebook with pics of the shirts for proof: http://www.facebook.com/brian.wood.5030927
Here is his company website: http://www.sheddshirts.com/
I’d love for others to let him know he’s a scumbag.
and he’s definitely selling some copyrighted logos I hafta think.

Interesting stuff/info … thanks for sharing.
Capitalism at is very worst . What else should we expect ? Next up T-shirts with priest exposing their genitalia with the the moniker saying …….. ” caring is sharing ” .
I agree. Its a pretty low / easy shot for the creator to make. Very lame.
Brains not brawn ! In this case however , this guy has s##t for both brains and brawn .
Next stop , he becomes a member of Congress .
hahaha….! Probably so.
It was alright when they sold Shitt On Pitt t-shirts at state penn!
It was? I would have to disagree.
I think stuff like that is pretty taste-less. I hope I didn’t give the impression that it was somehow okay!?
Good can always come from bad. Maybe the T-shirts will cause parents to become more involved in the lives of their children. Just because someone is in a position of power and authority doesn’t make him trustworthy.
“Google Image shirt”
Google image search. :-\
When I first saw this logo in a Google Image search, I thought it was a bad joke referencing the problem of rape in US prisons. But that it references the specific scandal that happened at PSU takes it to a whole new level of ick. Are whatever few extra ducats this guy is making by selling shirts with this altered logo really worth the bad press and tarnished personal image?
I agree … the money isn’t worth it (at least not to me). And not that it changes the “ick” factor, but this was from 2012; so I am not really sure if this is still being sold, created, or going on.
