Like Money Talks? Win a T-Shirt!

A few weeks back I was watching Animal House for about the millionth time when I heard my favorite line. Dean Wormer to Flounder: “Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life, son.”

It was then that divine inspiration struck. OK, maybe not divine, but inspiration. I said to my dog, “That’s it! That’s the T-shirt we need! Well, maybe not that T-shirt, but something kind of like it.” The dog agreed – the dog always agrees. So a few weeks and hundreds of dollars later, I picked up 100 T-shirts with a slogan destined to carve out a place in personal finance history.

“Money Talks News…because broke, stupid and lonely is no way to go through life.”

Hopefully the “broke” and “stupid” are self-explanatory. Why the “lonely?” Because our ultimate mission is to provide a thriving community where like-minded people can gather to exchange ideas, offer each other encouragement and – just maybe – have a little fun.

Want one? Win one!

They’re available in our store, but heaven knows you’re way too frugal for that. So here’s all you have to do: simply “like” us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter. Then stay tuned for trivia and other contests that will allow you to win one of your very own!

Liking us takes about a second – way more than you’ve already spent reading this. So take one more second and like us! Best case scenario, you win a T-shirt that will definitely have people talking to you (seriously – about 50 people have stopped me so far.) Worst case? You’ll make us feel good. See? No downside. So what are you waiting for?

Note: We love all our readers, including those in other countries. But because of the added expense and hassle of mailing T-shirts to Canada and other international destinations, this contest is open only to those living in the U.S.

    I want a t-shirt.  More specifically I want a free t-shirt that says “Money Talks news …, etc”.  Yes, I’m too frugal to buy one.  Plus, I refuse to pay to provide free advertisement.  I will advertise if I’m paid — thus, I need a free t-shirt — which is enough pay for me to wear the shirt until it falls to tatters on my poor old body.  I confess I’ve only been a subscriber for a week but I have read every word every day.  Good stuff.  Thank you.  Oh, when can I expect the t-shirt.  Being 65 years old, I try not to waste time these days.

    I would like a t-shirt like that, but it will take a whole lot more than a t-shirt to get me to open Facebook more than I absolutely have to for the sake of a few of my friends, and, not being a twit, I am not going to follow anyone closely on Twitter.

    Join Facebook or Twitter just to win a ‘T’-Shirt……..I don’t think so.
    Social networking sites are notorious in stealing people identity and pictures.

      Matt,

      To be clear, social networks don’t steal identities. Although social network users who disclose too many personal identifiers do put themselves at an increased risk for having their identity stolen.

        Karla,
        In theory yes but I experienced first hand having my picture(s)and password stolen by someone on Facebook. So Facebook did not theorically steal my ideanty but made it easy for it to happen because of careless and sloppy security.
