Read the news story, get the t-shirt...

Hats off to CNN who have a new service in beta at the moment: t-shirts based on individual news headlines.

Today, you can purchase a shirt bearing the legend "Wild baboons tear through city streets" or "Goldfish trained to herd other fish". A tagline on the shirt reads "I just saw it on CNN.com" and provides passers-by with a date and time stamp. Now, that's my kind of merchandise.

They're quite selective about which stories they fashion into apparel though. "China quake: Millions of tents needed" is deemed a little too sensitive for streetwear.
