TMBG Shirt #42: Worker Johns

Making a rare long sleeve appearance are the Worker Johns. Another design by Mark Marek, who is of course responsible for the very first shirt in this series, "Hayseed Johns". 
The front of the shirt simply bears the standard lunch break gear of the factory worker: a metal lunchbox containing a sandwich and a doughnut with a steaming thermos of java.
On the back are John and John decked out in their worker greens in a brightly colored industrial setting. Flansburgh is sporting some stubble and a construction helmet. Linnell deftly carries his accordion with one arm while holding his own helmet and the aforementioned lunch pail with the other. Both appear winded and sweaty after a hard day's rocking at the record factory, pictured in the background. The life of a rock musician is indeed a hard one!
