Well, Let’s See What Happens

Would You Buy This T-Shirt?

Over 400 people said they’d theoretically buy a t-shirt that I made that was inspired by a Chieftain comment. I don’t expect 400 sales, not by a long shot. But there’s a a method to the madness of me going to the trouble of designing that shirt.

The t-shirt is up and for sale. Chieftain gets a dollar per shirt. Chieftain has no idea that this is going on.  We’ll be doing this in the future. So, I’ll be lurking the comments, and you might possibly make a little coin. I never steal an idea from iOTW commenters, always giving credit in the art. Now I’m going to try and possibly give a monetary bonus to the loyal readers.

    Sorry BFH, but a bitch would cut my ass for wearing something like that around here. I am brave enough to wear Anthem’s “Breitbart is Here” t-shirt only because he wasn’t on last season’s “The Voice”, so they have no idea who he is.

    I’ve got an idea. Make a t-shirt with a Spartan helmet on it with ΜΟΛΩΝ ΛΑΒΕ underneath it.

    It would sell like hotcakes! And I wouldn’t take one red cent!

    I like tshirts more of the type of design like molon labe on angrywhitedude, understated with great enigmic design.

    Kudos on your loyalty to your fans, BFH.

    I don’t think I’ll be buying any shirts for a month or two, but I like the idea. I will be looking to buy some shirts in the near future.

    One day I might try and do a t-shirt as fine as the Molon Labe design on AngryWhiteDude’s site.

    Anthem wouldn’t accept “payment method”. Tried Visa and MasterCard. Wouldn’t work. Tried to order 2 shirts.

    I own a veeerrrry cool, high quality white T-shirt with black cap sleeves and collar….

    ….simple beautiful pit bull with long lashes, red valentine mouth lipstick and pearls around its neck:

    Pitbulls for Palin

    I like the design, idea of this shirt. But, the formless crummy execution quality of the shirt is, ah….

    …less than I would want. Gimme some class.
    At least some options. ….Lady in Red

    Also: Orange and black is pretty Halloween….. sigh. Anything else, pretty, sexy…? one might wrap a shirt around, with jeans?

    Fur, what an absolutely stunning idea!

    As you are fond of saying, the readers here at iOTW are among the very BEST. I have been awed at the quality of thought represented by their comments. They make me cry, scream, smile and laugh.

    I love our family here and you are truly our fearless leader! Kudos to you for recognizing talent and having the desire to share the message AND bounty.

    Ok, now I gave myself a cavity. Carry on and kill ‘em with satire!

    Anthem is on googles shit list apparently. I got 3 security warnings I’d never seen before when I was loading the image. All about untrusted sites, and certificates blah blah blah.

    Pretty cool idea Big Fur Hat! If I ever say something smart enough (on accident) to go on a shirt, will you fix my speeling and typo”s?

    Wow! Big Fur Hat, that is incredibly generous of you and you honor me deeply, but I really do not need the money. If you do go through with this idea, I would request that instead of sending me the funds, that you donate it to the Wounded Warriors Project instead. I’m sure they can use the money, and maybe that will help spur even more sales and donations to a most worthy cause.

    Thank You for your very kind offer, and lets see how much good can be done with that money.

    Fur…. I wasn’t entirely clear. My “Pitbulls for Palin” tshirt is classic. If I want the fabric is so very fleecy and thick I can wear it with a black swish skirt and pearls.

    It’s a look…. but it *works*.

    I don’t want a zillion tshirts, formless, with holes in them. I want statements.

    I like your statement. I don’t like the color or the fabric or the formless-ness of it all.

    Also, what about a form curving trapazoid: wide at the shoulders to narrow at the hips…. Start the printing much much higher…. right down to teeny princess hips…?

    …some better colors and something one might wear somewhere other than Papa Johns or a People of Walmart commercial?

    If you do the work, the quality of the fabric, the variety of Tshirt, collars and things like cap sleeves… and other style should be chump change options.

    BFH and everyone here – you are the greatest group. This is my love fest for you. I love the Molon Labe t-shirt (but not the color), but am unemployed and on tight budget. Change the color and I’ll forfeit something to buy it.

    @Chieftain — Just so you know, as soon as I read your comment, I changed my personal website quote page to include your quote.
