I thought that’s what he had on! Sheldon is a jellie?

tinyfaery's avatar

I will watch tonight. I’m on the west coast. Thanks for the heads-up.

So, do they owe fluther money now?

SuperMouse's avatar

WOW! I love that show, I can’t believe I missed Sheldon in a jelly shirt! That is so cool!

aprilsimnel's avatar

One of us! One of us! Maybe…

Fernspider's avatar

Does anyone have a picture?

chyna's avatar

Maybe @tinyfaery can get one since she is on the west coast and will see it later?

cookieman's avatar

So someone affiliated with the show is a jelly? Hmmmmm…

chyna's avatar

@cprevite Do you know something we don’t know?

Dog's avatar

I am willing to bet that there are jellies in high places globally.

gailcalled's avatar

@Dog: ^^ Is that you, Gromit?

cookieman's avatar

@chyna: Nope – just thinking out loud.

rangerr's avatar

So.. looking at the CBS schedule.. the episode tonight was ep. 13.
Going back through my torrents.. I took a screenshot.

That’s the shirt he had on when he left.
Not a jelly shirt.

Jude's avatar

Waa-waaaaah

ubersiren's avatar

Way to burst the bubble, @rangerr :)

How did that get mistaken for a jelly shirt?

cookieman's avatar

not even brown

SuperMouse's avatar

I have no idea what a torrent is, but I know a jelly shirt when I see one and that is no jelly shirt. Bummer.

augustlan's avatar

I was so excited for a minute! Boo. :(

Now I think we should send them one…

whatthefluther's avatar

@rangerr…..Thank you for sparing me. I was extremely nervous and starting to physically react to the thought of watching serial television after going cold turkey some ten years ago. A jelly shirt would have made it worthwhile though.
See ya…..Gary/wtf

Dog's avatar

So this means we just need to send them one that’s all. They would wear it then!

MyNewtBoobs's avatar

What’s a jelly shirt?

whatthefluther's avatar

@Dog…We ought to task andrew with it and find out how well connected he is to the industry. See ya….Gary/wtf

rangerr's avatar

As much as I love Fluther, I don’t think the Jelly shirt is nerdy enough for Sheldon.

whatthefluther's avatar

@rangerr….an eyeglass wearing jellyfish on a puke brown t-shirt, not nerdy enough? What would it take?

Buttonstc's avatar

@Wtf

Ah, someone who seems to dislike that brown as much as I ! !

I call it Baby-crap Brown, but puke is so much easier to type so I may switch.

What on earth does any kind of brown have to do with jellyfish swimming in the sea anyway ? Oceans are normally depicted by some variant of blue/green, but brown ?

Nice way to screw up a theme, dontcha think ?

whatthefluther's avatar

@Buttonstc….Any color would be an improvement over the brown…and I am color-blind!!! I would love to see either a hoodie or long sleeve in blue/green or even in black (with “fluther” down each sleeve and “join the collective at fluther.com” on the back).
See ya….Gary/wtf

Buttonstc's avatar

Now that is very very cool !

jazmina88's avatar

@rangerr That is not the shirt I saw or was referring to. I truly saw a jelly shirt.

rangerr's avatar

@jazmina88 What scene are you referring to, then? I have every episode of TBBT, and I know which episode was on tonight… Nowhere in that episode did he have a shirt with a jellyfish on it. The shirt he had on before that scene was a plain purple shirt..

jazmina88's avatar

I dont know which # episode…...the apartment is robbed and Sheldon is frightened and decides to move. @chyna thought she saw it too. It is not the picture you posted…....the scene after he had on a coat and I believe a hat, and his bags were stolen in the Bozeman bus terminal. The shirt was dark, plain and had a small blue jellie on upper side.

That’s my story I’m sticking to it. Sometimes the networks do broadcast different episodes….i dont know.

rangerr's avatar

Oh, so you mean this shirt?
Right after he walks in the front door.
That’s a skull. Same shirt as he had on before he left. See here
In either case, it’s not our jelly shirt.

whatthefluther's avatar

@jazmina88…I just subjected myself to the last five minutes of the show and can confirm that on the west coast broadcast, he was indeed wearing the shirt shown in the @rangerr provided photo. Of course, he could have changed shirts between broadcasts. If you are adamant (and will please confirm you are not wearing puke brown tinted eyeglasses), I volunteer to do the following:
Sheldon requested the next flight to Pasadena, CA. That would actually have him arriving at the Bob Hope Airport in Burbank (formerly known as the Burbank, Glendale, Pasadena Airport, and prior to that, Hollywood Burbank Airport and prior to that Lockheed Air Terminal)
That terminal is just a mile or so from my home. I will check to see what the arrival time is for the next flight from Bozeman and will have @sccrowell load me in the van and we will stalk Sheldon upon his arrival. The weather is perfect (as always) here in the Los Angeles (home of the World Champion Lakers) area so he should have his overcoat off as he exits the terminal. Inasmuch as his bags were stolen in Bozeman, we need not worry about about a quick change.
Am I airport bound? Please know I do not travel well but will gladly make the trek for a fellow jelly.
See ya…..Gary/wtf

jazmina88's avatar

it does look like a jelly on that shirt…..and I am completely wrong…please sting me…...
@whatthefluther you deserve the jelly shirt. :):) You do love Sheldon as much as I??

Let’s send everyone a jelly shirt!!!!

PS my eyes are rotten

whatthefluther's avatar

@jazmina88….Actually, I just met him this evening (I don’t watch television), but felt an immediate connection with him (must be the nerd in me). I wouldn’t quite call it love yet, but you never know how relationships go and grow. See ya…...Gary/wtf
PS: I already have a jelly shirt that I would never part with despite the color (well, maybe if Sheldon were to request it, very nicely).

jazmina88's avatar

@whatthefluther You met him this very evening when i’m hallucinating about him in a fluther shirt?? He’s a hysterical actor. But would he ever ask, very nicely??

and sorry for the hysteria, folks….:( you can see the stubborn side.

whatthefluther's avatar

@jazmina88….Truth be told, I believe I am starting to fall in lurve with you (please don’t say anything to @sccrowell). See ya…....Gary/wtf
PS: Welcome to my fluther.

chyna's avatar

Oops, sorry, it looked like a jelly shirt to me too. :(

jazmina88's avatar

Thank GOD @chyna cant see too!!! :):)
and wtf :):) I’m blushing.

gemiwing's avatar

So when do we start the Jellyshirt Onslaught of Aught Ten? We need to get organized here, people. Lots of great celebs/cast/crew need to wear our Jellyshirts.

chyna's avatar

@gemiwing Maybe if they came in another color instead of poop brown.

ubersiren's avatar

I rather like the brown. It’s chocolatey and goes well withe blue jellyfish.

Dog's avatar

In regards to why the shirt is brown it is because our founders can see into the future:
Dr. J lives in the Gulf

whatthefluther's avatar

@Dog….Then Dr. J must be relocated immediately….I fear for his life!. May I suggest the shores of San Francisco near our founders or perhaps down south in the warmer waters of Malibu or the Santa Monica/Venice area. See ya…...Gary/wtf
PS: Perhaps we should let him decide…..he might like one of the secluded nude beaches in the San Diego area.

chyna's avatar

What? There’s nude beaches in San Diego? I was there and didn’t know. Darn it.

cookieman's avatar

@chyna: Yup. There’s a place you can take ultralight and glider lessons. It’s up on a cliff that overlooks one of the nude beaches.

chyna's avatar

@cprevite
Next time I go anywhere, I will check with you and WTF as to the “sights” I should see while there. hehe

CMaz's avatar

Besides. Wardrobe decides what they are going to wear. Not the talent.
They are always looking for a look that helps the characters persona.

Andrew, since this subject was brought up. Do you have a Hollywood connection that can get a Jelly shirt to the wardrobe department.

MissAnthrope's avatar

What’s wrong with brown? It’s different, just like Fluther.

gailcalled's avatar

Personally, I love my brown Fluther tee-shirt. It makes a nice change from navy, grey or white.

chyna's avatar

@gailcalled I have to agree with you there. It would be a change from my black, dark grey, or black wardrobe.

CMaz's avatar

Seafoam Green shirt.

Jude's avatar

Brown or orange look good on me. Keep the brown.

Other options besides brown would be nice for the other folks.

Buttonstc's avatar

What’s wrong with brown ?

The fact that it’s the ONLY choice.

I certainly wouldn’t begrudge those of you who genuinely like it or try to change your minds. Everyone’s individual tastes are different. There are some of us who just find it a disgusting looking color and wouldn’t be caught dead in it.

But the only choice we have is to go without. In this day and age with numerous sites willing to offer color variety on an as-needed basis without any extra expense, why limit everybody to wearing puke brown?

What is the main reason for having Fluther shirts at all if you’re going to sabotage widespread acceptance by such a crappy (literally) color limitation.

Just doesn’t make much sense. The brown lovers have their shirts already. How about giving the rest of us a chance. It doesn’t cost any more and doesn’t require a logo change.

Then everybody can be comfy in their Fluther shirts—NOT JUST the brown shirts.

Jude's avatar

@Buttonstc Give them some time. Maybe, they’ll come up with another color besides brown.

TooBlue's avatar

Eyesight fail.

Jeruba's avatar

I like brown and I like Dr. J, but I don’t like T-shirts. I’ll hold out for a choice of styles.

tinyfaery's avatar

A hoodie would be awesome.

jazmina88's avatar

At least I watch TV and think I see blue jellies…....

Dog's avatar

Ohhh a hoodie would rock!

ubersiren's avatar

I third a hoodie!

zenele's avatar

Hoodie and the Jellyfish.

chyna's avatar

Blue hoodie!

CMaz's avatar

Yea, that is what I need here in Florida. A hoodie.

tinyfaery's avatar

So don’t get one.

Jude's avatar

(feisty chica :))

cookieman's avatar

I vote for Dr. J boxers.

Jude's avatar

@cprevite What about pickle slings?

chyna's avatar

Dr. J thongs.

Jude's avatar

@Dog I do like those. :)

SuperMouse's avatar

@Dog I thought we decided you were going to stay out of my dress drawers!

Jude's avatar

@Dog You dawg, you.

zenele's avatar

@chyna With all the sunbathing you do – perhaps some Dr. J swimwear and beachwear?

mattbrowne's avatar

Wow.

Now Fluther deserves a Wikipedia entry.

cookieman's avatar

@jjmah: I prefer a banana hammock

just not on me

Jude's avatar

@cprevite how about a bedaaazzled banana hammock (on you), though? Pretty, pretty rhinestones?

Dog's avatar

Ha ha ha ha @chyna!

cookieman's avatar

@jjmah: With fiber-optic lights?

Then, I’d be all about it.

Jude's avatar

@cprevite No, more like Neil Diamond in a bedazzled banana hammock-type look. :)

;)

cookieman's avatar

@jjmah: Sure. I’ll take thhat fit a spin.

JLeslie's avatar

I just came across this question. I love Big Bang Theory, and I didn’t notice the shirt – shoot. I must have been distracted when it was on.

Buttonstc's avatar

It wasn’t really a jelly shirt. It was some type of ghost or skull, so you didn’t really miss anything noteworthy :)

gailcalled's avatar

@jjmah: Around here, we call him Neil Zircon.
