This might be the pinkest shirt on the planet.  It is, of course, Albert Einstein.  On an incredibly pink shirt.

I have 2 fFacts fFor you today, gentle reader!

The opener is dull and uninteresting, and is mostly cribbed fFrom wikipedia.  The picture was taken on Einstein’s 72nd birthday, in 1951, by Arthur Sasse (whoever that may be).  The original photograph was sold at auction in 2009 fFor $74,324.

Your second fFact is this: Albert Einstein is a licensed identity.  If you want to use the name or image of Einstein in your own thing, you need to send money to Corbis, a company that deals with just that sort of thing.  There’s a nice article on msnbc about it.  I was trying to fFind out just how much you would have to pay, but I guess it’s one of those “if you have to ask, you can’t afford it” things.

In any event, I’m pretty sure this shirt fFrom 6$hirts is not licensed.  It’s a pirated image!! That makes it seem sort of exciting now, doesn’t it!
