Hey gang, Thanks to everyone for placing those orders. We now have 24 orders, so the shirts will definately be printed.
If you want a shirt, It is still not to late to get your orders in. Do it here:

You have until the 9th of August to get on it.

Tiki-toa, check your personel messages.

Isn't a Menehume like an evil little Hawaiian leprechaun? So..

A Smokin Menehune would be like a really stoned evil little Hawaiian leprechaun??

Looking forward to seeing the Menehunes at the Long Beach Tiki Fest 8/21-22.

I'll pick up my shirt there, if they have them. Nice design, Chongolio!

Actually, the menehune was a mythical (or not) race of short folk that was known to accomplish great civil engineering feats, such as dams, bridges, roadways etc.

In addition, these incredible feats were always completed in one night; if they weren't, they would never be completed.

Whether the menehunes were mythical or not is a point of contention in Hawaii. During one of the first census of Hawaii conducted by the British in the late 1800's, about 16,000 people identified themselves as 'menehune'.

Did these little bastards have anything to do with the construction of the infamous "Road to Hana"? If so, they really must have been partaking of the infamous "Maui Wowee".

Anyone who has been to Maui will know what I mean!

Hey! Great collector item idea!

Bring your SM's shirt to the ITD gig and we'll all sign your shirts.

That way they'll be worth even mor..., ah, nevermind...

Tiki_Bong,

Nope, not reincarnated, just started here recently.

Will you be selling the shirts at the Belmont Tiki Fest (8/21-22)? If so, you can sign mine.

Are you guys playing both days? I think I'm going Saturday. Hope to see you there.

Mahalo, Menehunes!
