Sleep like a kitten in this cozy t-shirt. Incorporated in 1973 Chessie System, Inc. was a holding company that owned the Chesapeake & Ohio Railway (C&O), the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad (B&O), the Western Maryland Railway (WM), and several smaller carriers. In 1972 C&O merged with B&O and WM, with the newly formed company named The Chessie System. They adopted the "Ches-C" logo, which incorporated the silhouette of the kitten into the "C" of the railroad's name. In 1986 The Chessie System merged with other railroads to become the CSX Corporation. Though the Chessie logo is no longer found in advertising and was phased out of usage on trains, there are still examples of rolling stock that feature the kitten logo as they have yet to be repainted.

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
