Che in the layette. (2 degrees of colour separation)

Samuel wears Che.
What is it about a baby wearing a Che Guevara t-shirt that makes you do a double-take? Is it because we’re used to seeing babies in baby clothes adorned with characters out of fairy tales or comic strips? Many years ago a good friend of mine was uncomfortable with her child wearing a sleeper that had an Elmer Fudd decal on it. She took exception to Elmer’s shotgun. It was both ugly & racist. You never know what you’re gonna get at a baby shower!!!!! Why not a handsome assassinated revolutionary? Che died at 39 and his immortality was assured when Alberto Korda took his 1960 pic of him in the beret & ✫. Die young and leave a beautiful corpse. Jesus started the trend.

Baby Samuel lives in Copenhagen.
