Hamsters are the reason

Shame on ALL OF YOU for the fact that I am now working on this. I extend the hand of friendship to the 11 people who will probably say they'd buy it so I don't feel bad in my life. It is now available - here's your chance to prove that reader pressure is a force for good.



An intermediate yellow deal I posted

My original rough

It's the Saddest Wookiee minus the sales, I think.

The 11 shall buy it with the credit cards of an angry god. In their fists. Angry fists.

Ye gods! I turn my back for a day and a half and you resort to THIS?!
I'm sorry I wasn't here to say how much I liked Led Zeppelin, man, but MAN!
Actually, it's not bad, but I was hoping for the "Cylon-Not-a-Cylon-Eh?" design.

Julie said...

I had to look up who Amy Acker is, but oh my lord, her husband grew up in my neighborhood.

David Bennett said...

I will buy this. I enjoy things that I can't adequately explain.

Marie said...

Well, I'm enjoying the designs.

Darnit, I'm only here because I couldn't find your email if such a thing exists and wanted to say-- Shelley's gonna write for Conte Nast? I can't WAIT to see how THIS turns out. Whoo-hoo!

Chelle said...

I laughed out loud when I saw this sight that you just showed us.

Well done, sir. Print it, please! I will send you all of my American dollars.

I don't know who Amy Acker is, but I do know who Robert Rankin is.

Delightful.

RE: Christmas Island, please be extremely mean-spirited about our immigration policies. You could seal the election one way or the other!

Dear god I must have this. I giggled at first, thought it was cute but it was the sad little 'why?' that will prise the money from my hands.

Andrew James said...

Simply wonderful! I am sure I can drum up at least two sales.

John,

did you actually played "Rockstar ate my hamster" or it's me just dreaming about me and you dabbling with Spectrums and Commodores at the same time during the 80s?

John A said...

I never played it but I remember the name - was it Code Masters? Or perhaps Mastertronic! A classic from the Zzap/Crash era.

My inspiration really was the original Freddie Starr headline from The Sun/Star/Mirror. I like to append "ate my hamster" to all sorts of things.

Gelsey said...

I don't understand and google does not enlighten me. I lose at geek-lore I suppose.
