Oh, you can tally another one for pompous. I "voted" urchins and jazz because they were red. I didn't bother saying anything for pompous since it was already green. (also I liked spanish inquisition and 1-800-beards)

Jay said...

Damn I didn't know we were supposed to vote. I rather liked the 8-Bit Elvis, it's the only one that struck me immediately.

Dr. Hastings said...

Lot's of good designs, then an honest to goodness enthusiastic focus group! John I dare say you are on the path to RICHES.

RICH AS BITCHES.

i didn't spot this until it was too late, but i really REALLY liked action badger - long time fan, first time caller

anonymousse said...

I think it means you had some spare time.

mare said...

i was too late to vote. PLEEEEAAAAASE do the tiny stephen harper with a spatula, even if it's only canadians who buy it. i would! and i would laugh and laugh and laugh and wear it whilst i teach about canadian parliamentary democracy.

Roman said...

8-Bit Elvis is as unpopular as his fleshy counterpart was popular. The poor wretch.

Julia said...

I will buy and wear the 1800-beards shirt, if you make it available in girl's sizes. x

Beccy David said...

PLEASE make a Stephen Harper one.
I would buy it immediately, possibly a few so I could give them out to friends.
The Canadian in me must have it.

K said...

Yesss! Jay likes 8-bit Elvis too! I am no longer the only one.

But I'm happy Nosferatu has found friends. (Wait, that sounds odd.)

I have been sending Canadians here ON A MISSION

Aaron said...

What about the "I'm only shopping..." design? I would buy that design if it was on a tote bag and put my groceries in it! ho ho

fingle said...

John, come up with one of your whimsical designs on the theme of KNITTING, or better, YARN HOARDING (A knitter's 'stash' is never, never large enough) and I will send HORDES of people in your direction. A shirt that featured a selfish knitter would SELL LIKE HOTCAKES. They will vote until they crush your server. Not crash, CRUSH. We're talking smoking ruin.

Surely you must have seen some knitters about that you could poke fun at? But be careful! They carry pointy sticks and have lightning-fast reflexes!

Oh Whitey Sale, I will pour a 40 for you then step all over the dead soldier.

John A said...

I feel you Nicholas, game's changed.

HOW DID GREG ALLMAN ALREADY GET HIS MITTS ON THE Burgle My House shirt when it hardly got votes? frick and frack!

why not do another informal survey about what these images should be printed on? please!

boy adventurer said...

why does the line of consideration cut off at 8? is that the amount you need to sell to break even, or is it just an arbitrary metric?< /intrusive curiosity>
