Save Shilpa Shetty!

Remember people, for those of you scoring at home, or even if you're single and by yourself, if Shilpa Shetty gets voted off the British version of "Big Brother" then the terrorists win.

If you have no idea what I'm talking about then let's just say that the biggest rift in Indo-Brit relations since the whole colonialism thing is currently talking place on a TV probably not-so-near to you.

While the issue at hand is semi-serious, albeit spectacularly bizarro how it's actually affecting politics in both countries, the most logical thing to do is to figure out a way to profit from this. And like many people who live in the East Village I share the mindset that the best place to make political statements is on overpriced T-shirts.
What better place to incite and capture the imagination of an entire subcontinent than these T-shirts. Wear it with pride. Wear it for fashion. But most importantly, wear it for Shilpa.
