G.I. Joe/Batman Apron

My custom made GI Joe/Batman reversible apron.
In honor of Mother's Day, I figured I’d show off the reversible GI Joe/Batman apron my mom made for me.  I can only imagine how difficult it was for her to stitch it while constantly rolling her eyes.  When I say “reversible,” I mean it’s GI Joe on one side and Batman on the other.  Fortunately, both sides make me look equally douchey, so it doesn’t really matter.

I asked for GI Joe on one side because I feel like Snake Eyes when wielding a knife in the kitchen.  And I asked for Batman on the other side because I feel like Two-Face whenever I scald half my head in boiling oil.  Although, I wish I'd asked for Star Wars, since I like to freeze all of my vegetables in carbonite. 

Even though it’s a one-of-a-kind, I wouldn’t be surprised if these things really catch on in the culinary world.  Next thing you know, we’ll be seeing Emeril wearing a Thunder Cats chef’s hat.

  1. I love this apron. And I love even more that you asked for it. I wish I could have been a witness to that conversation. Did your mom offer to make a reversible apron with the action figures of your choosing? Or did you just one day say, mom - make me a reversible apron with G.I. Joe on one side and Batman on the other. Although I am a little dissappointed because at first I thought it was an apron of G.I. Joe and Batman co-existing on the same side. Imagine that world.
