Nightmare Fuel

It's a storied tradition that whenever a team reaches a sporting championship only to lose, the rejected title apparel of the runners-up is shipped off to a far away country to be given to the less fortunate. It seems like a win-win situation; obviously there's no point in throwing away clothes that are perfectly fine (aside from their inaccurate proclamation of victory), and it's safe to assume that the people who end up wearing those clothes really don't care that they're walking 5 miles to get fresh water while boasting that the Colorado Rockies are your reigning World Series champs.

That said, photos of villagers in these garments are usually hard to come by, but in the case of the 18-1 New England Patriots, the New York Post is naturally on the case. Their photo spread consists of several Nicaraguan children and adults alike swimming in Vince Wilfork-sized XXXXL t-shirts, but the most insane photo of the spread is pictured below. There really is no limit to the amount of words this picture is worth.

Seems that the shirt giveaway event would have benefited greatly from featuring an old-fashioned krumpers vs clowns battle. I'm convinced Tommy the Clown would have put this impostor to shame.
