Dead Bury Dead + Takeout

In a perfect world, the dead would bury the dead and then head out for Chinese takeout. The guys over at Dead Bury Dead have just released their latest tee and its the perfect tee for those of you who 1. love Chinese food, or 2. love the typography of old school Kung Fu movies. Speaking for myself, I love both Chinese food and old Kung Fu movies. I used to watch the heck out of old Bruce Lee flicks as a kid.

What’s great about this shirt, other than the tee of course, is the great packaging that it comes in. It might just be your typical Chinese takeout box, BUT, it totally makes the T-Shirt that much better. The Dead Bury Dead took the theme of this T-Shirt to the next level, in my opinion. Having said that, are those Chinese characters on the tee Dead Bury Dead translated into Chinese? If you read Chinese, let us know!

Takeout is available now from Dead Bury Dead for $19.99.



Benny Frying Pan Rips Off Johnny Cupcakes

So this is a trip. It looks like a korean “brand” named Benny Frying Pan has decided that they want to be just like Johnny Cupcakes, literally. The Korean based Benny Frying Pan changed the name, but nothing much else. As you can tell from the comparison images below, Benny Frying Pan is a clear rip off of Johnny Cupcakes.

Even a close look at the two logos and you’ll notice that the cupcake are still there, but the fake version decided, hey, a fork and spoon would work better than bones. But you can’t fool us, it’s still a rip off.

I don’t understand Korean, but I would LOVE to read the Benny Frying Pan “History” and “Concept”, which they do have posted on their website, albeit in Korean. They even have a section dedicated to their “Logos” with the quote:

“Our icons are expressed to passion and pleasure, including Trust, Promise, Community, Understanding and Fun.”

It’s pretty sad.

So what do you guys think? Should Johnny Cupcakes pack up his suitcase and burn Benny Frying Pan at the stake? He should at least splash them with some scalding hot cooking oil.

UPDATE: It looks like Benny Frying Pan also has a US / .com version of their site. You can check it out here. Lots and lots and lots more rip off designs than on the Korean website. They even have fitted caps.
