To be equally wary and respectful of the aforementioned rules, I will not post the site where to buy this shirt unless asked in this thread to make it so. That being said, gaze upon my work and tell me whats thou think'eth.

Title of the piece is: "Running for President"

Edit: the back so you don't have to scroll any.

    This could be clever, I guess. I don't know. But artistic?

    Its meant to be funny in a clever way, yes. The concept is playing with the old as dirt joke of
    "Is your refigerator running?"
    Well, as the shirt's front indicates, yes this refrigerator is running, but for President

    As for artistic, well, I used my artistic ability to think of the idea?

    Much better. Also, it appears to just be us two. I have some candles, mini wheats, and romantic music. Interested?

    I will fetch the cheap wine from the corner store.

    I'm going to unleash a year of sexual frustration into you.

    This sounds like it could be a contest between the two of us regarding who has more pent up sexual frustration.

    More on topic: Hay guyz, anyone wanna buy this clever shirt I made? There's only like 5 people viewing the AC this time of night, so I don't expect much response till this afternoon. There, now I'm dancing on the border of sitewhoring, but I have not posted a link yet, so, yay?

    No monies, but I would.

    Also, I think I might win this contest. A year of not getting any, because I bailed on my girlfriend for her friend who didn't put out like she said she would, bailed on her right before she changed her mind and decided she'd go ahead and make me a happy dude, but by that time I was with a new girl who I'm still with who shows no signs of wanting to have sex. Can you beat that?

    Back in the day before Caller ID, *69 etc. I used to do a lot of prank calls. The one I did most often was... "Hello sir/mam, Is you refrigerator running?" Yes. "Well I guess you better go catch it!" If you think that joke is still funny, then yes this is a funny shirt...

    I personally hate the original joke and think its stupid. Thats why I made this shirt, to dress up an old joke and make it look handsome, well, you know what I mean.

    I think the joke is funny - but I don't think Kenmore is the best choice. Personally, I'd go Frigidaire as I think more people equate the brand name to refridgerators.

    I had considered some other name options, but I thought frigidaire made the joke too obvious. I want people who look at the shirt to be slightly confused and interested and when they look at the back of the shirt, they think, hey something funny.

    Edit a bit: Its also election year, so it kind of plays on that too. Maybe?

    I should be receving the shirt in the mail this Tuesday so I can make sure of the printed quality.
    I'll upload some pictures and stuff.
    I've got some buyers, but I'm also telling them to wait until I've got the real thing to look at.


    So, anyone else want to make comments on this shirt before I let the topic fade into forum obscurity?

    I think the idea is clever enough, but its too late in the race. Remember when there were like twenty potential candidates? That was the time.

    I got the shirt today in the mail so I thought I'd post how it looks using the horrible quality of my webcam.

    The graphic on the front seems incredibly small... either that or you are a giant of a man.

    You're totally right and you're a mod.

    HOW DOES THIS HAPPEN?
