Uncle Buck Tank Tops
I tend to think that after adventuring, Uncle Iroh retired to enjoy the simple pleasures of life – mainly preparing and enjoying food and tea. After all, when your life has been so full of experiences, it might just be nice to settle back and enjoy some serenity for a while…. and some steamed dumplings, of course.

Jay & Silent Bob found out, in Dogma, to their dismay, that the Chicago suburb-town of Shermer, Illinois, was actually an entirely fictional place, dreamed up by the master of the 80s teen comedy/drama - John Hughes. Many of the films he wrote or directed were set in the same fictitious universe. In a 1999 interview he revealed the scale of this "Shermer-verse". 15 years worth of notebooks detailed how Ferris Bueller (FB's Day Off) was friends with Sam Baker (16 Candles), John Bender (The Breakfast Club) lived three doors down from Del Griffiths (Planes, Trains & Automobiles) and so on. What a shame his untimely death meant we did not get to see this 'verse expanded upon. The bulldog mascot was briefly mention in Ferris Bueller's Day Off and the names at the bottom of the shirt are all Shermer High School alumni from the films: Home Alone, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Pretty In Pink, The Breakfast Club, Uncle Buck, Some Kind Of Wonderful, Sixteen Candles & Weird Science
