An expression explained best by fellow designer grypesagon



Huckleberries smell good and taste sweet at first but become very bitter very fast.



The expression is basically saying:

"If you're looking for something, I can give you what you want, but in the end you won't like it."



It was also a line from the movie tombstone by the character Doc Holliday.

'Huckleberry' is slang for hucklebearer which is a Southern paulbearer thing. Implying death.

Cool design regardless

Totally random: I thought his gunholters were his legs, and I automatically thought of Mr. Krabs from Spongebob. And it made me happy.

Sorry, I've heard of huckle berry but I'm not very familiar with it (I'm not from USA)

I would probably find this annoying having to explain what a huckleberry is to everyone.

That's kind of a cool design, and upon further review, I could see myself wearing this one. Well done.

$5 and a [probable] buy

stellanoctis

My roommate would LOVE this!

I dig it! Would wear it for sure. 4 for style + 1 for concept, you do the math cowboy...

andycasto

really cool, but doesn't have the "Doc Holiday" silouette that I think it should. It kind of more looks like a generic cowboy... which is alright, too.

I'd still buy it.

this is so cool.

Ok, this is a cool shirt, but what the guy claims the expression is saying is absolutely wrong, so is the idea that it means pallbearer, wrong.

What it really means is:

"I'm the man for the job" or " I'm your man"

Looking at it in context, Johnny Ringo challenges Wyatt Earp to a fight, Earp dismisses him and Doc Holiday steps in, "I'm your huckleberry, " "It's just my game." in other words, " I'm your man," "I'm good at duels."
