Homage to Bill Griffith's Zippy the Pinhead

In the late 80's I was really into Bill Griffith's Zippy the Pinhead. As an homage to Zippy I enhanced a short-sleeve button-up shirt from Goodwill into a timeless keepsake... at least for me.
The shirt reads. "Punk Rock, Disco Duck, Birth Control -- I am Reporting as a Modern Person...I want to do the Hustle Now!!!", with "YOW" on the back.

I don't remember if I made up the text, or got it from one of the strips in Pinhead's Progress, which came out about that time. Looking at it now Zippy looks a bit robotic, but since it was the 80's that's understandable.

At the time I was in a band Maurice and the Chevaliers, and this was my performance shirt.
