Why is a t-shirt covered with wolves howling at the moon Amazon's top-selling item of apparel? Because the top has become an unexpected internet phenomenon, loved (ironically) by thousands. A sample review, by an Amazon user: "Pros: Fits my girthy frame, has wolves on it, attracts women. Cons: Only 3 wolves (could probably use a few more on the ‘guns’), cannot see wolves when sitting with arms crossed, wolves would have been better if they glowed in the dark.” [NYT]
