Phil Baharnd: The King of Auto Sales in Fargo, North Dakota

I’m not one to purchase pop-culture t-shirts. But when I saw this one, featured in an email from Cotton Bureau… well, I just had to have it.

It’s an obscure reference. A really obscure reference, if I had to be honest. I’m wondering how many people would actually recognize this name.

I liked the scene from the West Wing a great deal. So much so, that it was one of the early YouTube videos I posted up. If you’re not familiar with the reference, here’s the scene:

I look forward to encountering the first person who recognizes this shirt/name. I like to think of the t-shirt as a kind of shibboleth, so I know who the true West Wing fans are.

If you’re a nerd like me, and want this t-shirt you can purchase it on Cotton Bureau.

// Edit: The one, and only one tiny issue I have with this shirt’s design is… the fact that the zip code should have been included, just after “Fargo, ND.”
