Andre The Giant Ted DiBiase Virgil Lovers Sticker

Crapper Thomas Mossman writes:

I work for a printing company in Van Nuys, California, and while at work today, I came across this…
It was part of a three-item set of stickers, all labeled “Lovers”. I don’t know the common thread of the pictures, the other two of a couple and a very bloody boxer, respectively.

All I do know is that now there’s a reason to finally go to Virgil’s table at the next autograph show.

I’m going to assume this is one of those stickers that’s made in China where they mistranslated a word like “Partners” or something and this is the end result.

At least, I hope so.

Though, I admit a three-way lover’s quarrel between Andre The Giant, Ted DiBiase, and Virgil would be kind of interesting…

VIRGL: Ted, you bastard! How could you do this to me?! I thought we had something special.

TED: We did, Virgil! But Andre was there when I needed him.

ANDRE: Andre know how to make Ted happy like Virgil never could! Andre big! Yeah, yeah, yeah! He not small! No, no, no!

VIRGL: Fine! I don’t need you! I’ll always be a Wrestling Superstar!

ANDRE: Andre no mean to cause rift between millionaire and his man-serverent.

TED: It’s okay, big guy. We’ll go dive into my giant coin vault and swim around for awhile.

    It says this because Andre loved being the World World Tag Team Champion.

    Man, that sticker puts all sorts of disturbing images in your head.

  3. Brad says:

    I don’t even want to know were Ted stuffs his dollar bills….

  4. Jay (SFSC) Sanchez says:

    why do I have a feeling poor Virgil ends up being the ham in that man sandwich!

  5. The Doctor of Style says:

    Makes that cozy hug take on a new meaning!

    I like the pseudo-Wrestlemania font, too.

  6. super duper says:

    To recycle an old joke: Andre did have a posse.

  7. Jeremy says:

    So its true, everybody DOES have a price.

    As the Crapper who submitted this , perhaps I can shed a little more light.

    To answer Big Cheese, this sticker is not from China. Everything we send is made in-house to a customer’s specifications, and the customer must approve the design they submit before it’s printed. If there’s a mistake in the finished product, the customer can request a reprint. No such request ever came to my knowledge.

    This means somebody somewhere actually wanted and approved a sticker of Andre, Virgil, and DiBiase as “Lovers”. We don’t send anything internationally (except Puerto Rico or Canada) so the client had to be in the a United States. No translation issues would’ve been involved.

    Of course, the more I explain this, the more questions it raises.

    • "The Big Cheese" Paul Kraft says:

      But they obviously didn’t license the use of the image from WWE, right? WWE owns the image, but they can’t be using it with their permission…

      • Thomas says:

        True, but I guess it could depend on what the client intended to do with the stickers. Like I said, the Lovers sticker was part of a group of three item, and each item had only a quantity of 25, give or take a few. They really weren’t made to be individually sold in such small quantities, but given away.

        • "The Big Cheese" Paul Kraft says:

          I imagine WWE still wouldn’t be thrilled about them using the image. There’s no way WWE would agree to them using the image even if it is a giveaway (and why give away a sticker like that?).

  9. AK says:

    I imagine somebody, somewhere thought there was a little more going on between Ted, Andre and Virgil. Had they made the S in the lovers a $, then I think this could have been one funny (albeit not haha) funny joke.

    Also Andre’s hands are huge.

  10. neverAcquiesce says:

    Odder still is that LOVERS is in the WrestleMania font.
