Week 11:

Instead of shouting I prefer to write in CAPS.

Except of course when I am driving. When I drive I yell a lot! Passengers wonder why I yell, especially since the driver that I am yelling at can’t hear me.

You provide the cheese and I’ll provide the grill.

With all of my grilled cheese references you guys should know by now how much I love this American delicacy!

Toilet paper inspires me to be clean.

Doesn’t it inspire you?

I never know when to use apostrophy’s.

I actually do, but I thought this would be a witty entry.

When will mechanical pencils write for themselves?

I love using mechanical pencils! Because no matter what, the tip always stays sharp. No sharpening required. Unless of course you run out of lead. Then you need a back up plan!

The key to life is locked in a safe.

What is the key to life for you? I’m interested to know.

Psssst, wanna know a secret?

I wonder how many people would actually want to know “a secret” if I wore this shirt in public.

Paper airplanes are better than the real thing.

Yeah, I think. Why? Because you can build them on a whim and if they crash it’s no big deal.

I like my peanut butter nutty.

Indeed I do. In fact, I like it extra nutty. 

I surf the sea of emotions.

I might not be able to surf the ocean very (ok, not at all), but, I do know how to surf a sea filled with wild emotions. I do that very well.

Static electricity keeps me grounded.

OK, this slogan probably does not make any sense from a physics point of view, but, I came up with it after I shocked myself while touching the door knob of my hotel room. I hate when that happens. Past experience tells me this will happen a lot more when I get to Sin City. 

I’ll bet you a dollar that you read this sentence.

Oh, this I came up with as I was walking 5th avenue in the Gaslamp Quarter of San Diego. I saw a homeless man in a wheelchair coming towards me on the street while holding a sign. The sign said: I’ll be you $1 that you read this sign. I did read the sign and a slogan was born. 

Hand sanitizer: helping to create super germs.

Seriously, that’s what you’re doing every time that you choose to use hand sanitizer. You really don’t need to use hand sanitizer. It’s overkill. Sometimes germs can be a good thing.

Resistance is futile unless you are a part of The Resistance.

If you’re a fan of the Terminator series then you’ll get this slogan. By the way, I did see Terminator Salvation and I have to say that it was a gazillion times better than Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines. It wasn’t as great as T2 but it was still a very good movie.

The Puppet Show

I spotted these photos over at Fabrik, they were taken by Winkler+Noah and are part of a collection of over 30 portraits of children from two to eight years old. As you can see from the two photos below, the children were transformed into dolls by some Photoshop voodoo. I have to admit that these images left me stunned and interested to see the rest of the collection. You can check out the entire collection here, at the Puppet-Show.

And of course, I’ve included a couple of tees to match. Both of these Threadless tees feature, none other than, you guessed it: puppets!

Threadless Partners With Twitter

Whenever something becomes a cultural phenomenon, you can almost always expect a T-Shirt to pop up here and there that promotes, makes fun of, or applauds that particular phenomenon. Twitter has definitely swept the Interwebs and has become a phenomenal new way for people to connect and communicate. And we’ve seen a couple of Twitter tees op up here and there, but, expect that amount to increase exponentially! 

The popular Chicago based T-Shirt contest site, Threadless, announced earlier today that it has partnered with Twitter on a new project that will bring popular tweets to the torsos of millions. The shirts will feature notable tweets that are submitted and voted on by the users of Twitter. 

Winners will receive $500, a prize identical to that of the Threadless Typetees contest. And to promote the submission of tweets, individuals that submit a winning tweet made by someone else will receive $140. 

The new Threadless/Twitter tees cost $18 and feature the Twitter logo along with the @name of the tweet author on the bottom left corner of the tee.

Prevent wedgies and go commando.

This is actually the best defense to getting wedgies, and the cheapest! I don’t think that I’ve been the victim of wedgies (it helps being the oldest child amongst siblings and cousins) but I do remember dishing them out!

Organic is the new black.

Indeed everyone and their grandma has decided that going green is the best way to go. And of course it is. It’s even become a fashion statement for some and hence, organic “stuff” is the new black. 

Grapes don’t deserve to be stepped on.

I was trying to decide what beverage to get for lunch on this particular day (I decided on H20) and stumbled upon a bottle of Welch’s grape juice. I instantly thought of @garyvee and then wine. I’m not sure why I thought of @garyvee (I’m excited about his new book, BTW) but as I was thinking about him and I thought about how grapes don’t deserve to be smashed. What have they ever done to us!

Recycle your newspaper and make origami.

Oh, this seriously sounds like fun! Who wants to try?

Milk: It prevents decalcification.

Milk: It does a body good …. and it prevents decalcification! This is true, friends. 

I like to picnic with teddy bears.

Weird, I know. This slogan originated from an ODD status message that I saw on Facebook (not mine). Made it fit the 140 word limit and BAM, slogan. 

There’s no excuse for having no excuse.

There’s isn’t really an excuse for having no excuse. Even better, try not needing an excuse in the first place that way to won’t have to worry about having an excuse for an excuse. I just confused myself there.
