i heart guts! makes tee shirts and other stuff featuring seriously cute internal organs. They are also looking for organ transplant and related charities to collaborate with, turning the cute organ characters into an educational tool. Other organ themed tee shirts.

As someone who works on the procurement side of organ and tissue donation, this is most awesome. I'm forwarding this to our PR guy. Thanks!

Oh! I just posted it because I have an unnatural love for internal organs and like to wear them pictures of them on tee shirts. But I'm all for organ donation too so it would be extra cool if they can end up actually helping out with that stuff.

The small intestine is my favourite.

I wasn't formerly aware that I heart guts but, by golly I do now!
While not usually a fan of cute cartoons on T-shirts, I am really loving these cute cartoon internal organs making punny comments on T-shirts.

Nice find, shelley! Does this one count?

These look similar in style to Kawaii Not, whose tagline is "[t]he webcomic for cute gone bad!"

But most definitely very cool on all counts. :)

I had a Slim Goodbody T-shirt when I was a kid, which I dearly loved. I especially enjoyed pointing out where my rectum was.

Awesome! These'll go great with my Operation shirt! I could create a whole wardrobe!

My friend's mom served me cow spleen soup in Austria once. It was spleendid.

Ok, I'm lying. I don't even like liver, so it grossed me out. The broth was good though.

these organs will be your friends on myspace, if you are so inclined. i decided to make friends with liver. with my drinking habits, it's good to have an extra one around.

And according to the myspace profiles, Spleen is a 16 year old girl living in LA, and Liver is a 23 year old girl in Brooklyn.
Cute.

Amusing, but too damn much superfluous Japanese. It's a nice country and all (to visit, at least), but I'm hoping as much as anyone else that the fad dies eventually. : P

This us some sort of euphemism, isn't it? And really you're a hit man or something?

What, no jokes about waking up in an ice-filled hotel bathtub & finding your kidney shirt gone?

When my daughter was having trouble adjusting to life in New York, I made her a T-shirt with this on it.

Well I'm just a bag of guts and stuff,
And I'm all bloody inside.
A thin layer of skin is all that holds it in,
And I'm all bloody inside.
And if you see me, oh,
Don't want to be me, no,
You'd probably close your eyes,
And inside me well it's dark and gross as hell,
I'm not a pretty sight,
Cause and I'm all bloody inside.
I'm just a walkin' talkin bag of guts and stuff,
And I'm all bloody inside.
If you want to get to know me,
Then I suggest you start on the outside,
Cause Im sure that's my good side,
And if you see me, oh,
Don't want to be me, no,
You'd probably close your eyes,
And inside me well it's dark and gross as hell,
And I'm not a pretty sight,
Cause and I'm all bloody inside,
Cause and I'm all bloody inside.
