Camiseteria’s Mystery Food Truck

Mystery Food Truck by Douglas Evangelista is a funny and smart combination of Scooby Doo’s famous Mystery Machine with the common food truck. I love this because it immediately brings to mind the bad food specter of mystery meat, and hits on the slight uncomfortable weirdness of buying food from a truck that could leave at any moment, and lacks the accountability and respectability of a permanent location. It’s a relatable set up, and one that works especially well because Scooby and Shaggy were so notoriously ravenous. The only flaw to the joke here is that I think all that text makes the punchline come a bit too easily. I’d have preferred to see just “food truck” lettering on the hot dog, letting viewers make the mystery machine connection on their own (because when you have to work for it a little, the joke always feels funnier). That said, I think it perfectly nails the famous flowery Mystery Machine style, and this shirt should have no trouble finding fans as-is.
