'The Book of Mormon' Shop: I Went to New York And This Is the T-Shirt That I Bought

Not on the best terms with God today? Express your true feelings with the
 Hasa Tee. "Hasa Diga Eebowai" means "F*@# You, God" in the native Ugandan
 language. Please refer to track #4 on the Book of Mormon Original Cast Recording.

You know a couple of months ago I wrote a post about a website where people could post their crap souvenirs. Well I may or may not have succumbed to making such purchases on my recent visit to New York City. But in the euphoria after seeing the hysterical musical 'The Book of Mormon' all logic was pushed aside as I left with not one but three t-shirts (or tees). Now I rarely fall prey to making purchases at the concession stand at musicals other than the souvenir program and poster so the fact that I purchased these tees says something about either the quality of the musical (written by Trey Parker & Matt Stone of "South Park" fame with Robert Lopez of 'Avenue Q' fame) or my enjoyment of the show or both.

Besides the standard tee of the logo slapped on the front of the shirt, marketers have taken advantage of the humor and subject of the show for other shirt designs. This is one of the few shows in recent memory where the concession stand was still quite busy even after everyone exited the auditorium. Based on what I observed at the show, the "Hasa Diga Eebowai" was the top seller.

Visit to purchase these tees and other collectibles from the show's Mission Shop. These tees sell for $30-$35 online (before shipping) and at the show. Manufactured of 100% cotton they are available in sizes small to X-Large. All photos and tee descriptions (above and below) from the 'The Book of Mormon' Mission Shop page.

Wear this tee and fit right in with your Mormon Missionary friends!
Tee features tie image on front with 'The Book of Mormon' logo and
name tag with the phrase "God's Favorite Musical".
