FUN CARTOON

I am not sure who the artist is, but I think it might be Nicholas Gurewitch of Perry Bible Fellowship fame.  It looks a lot like some of his work, so I think I'll attribute it to him.  If any of you know differently, please let me know so I can attribute to the correct artist.

In case you have never seen Perry Bible Fellowship comics, there are plenty at his website:

OK, Snave, I went through it twice and don't get it. My guess is that it's meant to make a comment that some things those of us who are older recognize are completely alien to many younger people.

When I was a kid someone had to explain to me what high-button shoes and spats were. My parents and grandparents knew, of course. Later on, my kids asked what button-down shirts and dungarees were.

Still, if my guess is right, I still don't understand what a crapping monkey has to do with anything. Maybe I'm farther over the hill than I thought. :={

Maybe! But probably not! 8-)

It's just the author's complaint about kids' shirts and fashion accessories you see nowadays that say things like "Miami Pool Club 1976", "New Jersey Boxing Club 1987" etc... some made-up "club" like with a year attached to it or something... what DOES it mean?

Probably nothing really. For some reason though, it's "cool". For me, the author is saying those things, which are nonsense, come for nonsense (the kind of nonsense which 'scientists' take seriously when they design it!) 8-)

And those shirts usually have a number on them somewhere, like they're a uniform or something. In this case, when the monkey is swinging around over the numbers and craps on a three, that's the number chosen to be on the shirt. Heh!

I didn't get it either. That's why I didn't comment, so I wouldn't have to say "I don't get it."

You're both probably right, it's something meaningless that's meant to sound authentic or "in." Reminds me of those tacky "Members Only" T-shirts that were ubiquitous back in the '80s.

That's how I understand it too. Meaningless stuff that is considered in, without any rhyme or reason as to how it was designed.
