Cause I’m a karate man! And a karate man bruises on the inside!

With the holiday season in full swing and Christmas just around the corner, I have started watching one of my favorite films for this season, “Trading Places”. It is such a great film, but sadly does not get the respect it deserves in terms of product tie-ins. I don’t think they ever released a single official one and the unofficial ones are few and far between.

This t-shirt which I found on Rudbubble is my current favorite. It captures Karate Man Billy Ray Valentine striking a pose. I think I am going to put it on my wishlist and hope Santa brings it, unless he has a shirt with a dirty Santa eating salmon through his beard on hand, because I would of course want that instead.
