Shocking Shirt Developments
I know many of you are deeply, deeply invested in the ongoing sales battle between the two versions of my new Meow Meow shirt. Which one is more popular? The one that says "PAY ATTENTION TO ME: Meow Meow Meow", or the one that just says "MEOW MEOW MEOW: Meow Meow Meow"?
Well, the answer seemed clear pretty quick. "Pay Attention" outsold "Meow Meow" by a rate of 3:1. It did so for several weeks! Case closed. Or so I thought.
But friends, I just rechecked the data yesterday, and I have to share a shocking development. A twist so startling, so unexpected, it has challenged everything I thought I knew about the world. "Meow Meow" is now outselling "Pay Attention", and has for the past few weeks. As a result, they are now perfectly tied in total sales.
Why did this happen? Well, I can't really know for sure. But it has to be said: the shift in popularity from the one to the other was quite abrupt, and aligns pretty much perfectly with when social distancing started.
In other words, yes... "Pay Attention to Me" was more popular when people could leave the house and wear it around other people, and "Meow Meow" is more popular now that people are stuck at home with their cats.
OK, OK. Maybe it's a coincidence. Still, it's funny enough that I thought it might amuse some of you to know!
Of course, both versions of the shirt are still available to order. Get whichever one you like best! Buck trends! I support your decisions. (And come back on Wednesday for our next comic!)
