New York based art design firm, MyORB, recently released their Stop Honking tee in hopes of reducing the daily noise pollution caused by irate (and some not so irate) drivers. I visited New York three summers ago and I can tell you first hand that honking is part of the culture there. All of the honking initially came to me as quite a shock, considering that I am from Hawaii and honking is basically taboo here. If you honk in Hawaii you get labelled as the ass. Having said that, I rather enjoy honking here on the islands because I feel that, frankly, more people should honk when honking is necessary.
The Stop Honking T-Shirts from MyORB is “meant to be worn as an active call for car drivers to stop honking.” However, I’m pretty sure that this tee will have an inverse effect. I guarantee that every lunatic driver that sees this shirt will do one thing, and that one thing is honk their horn. They’ll honk their horn with such vivid enthusiasm that the shirt will be relegated to the cultural bin of ineffective products. Still, cool concept and in the end, if you want to annoy honkers then this is the shirt to get. Stop Honking is available now from MyORB for $15.

At the end of every week I post a round up of that weeks slogans here on my blog. What can you do to help the cause? Vote! Just click on a slogan (preferably all of them) and then vote by click “I’d Wear It!” – it’s that simple! If you want to see and vote for all of my slogans then just click here or on that photo of me with the Rockband guitar. Vote for me and I will bake you an amazing tray ofÂ double chocolate chip cookies if ever we meet in real life.
Week 7 (February 12, 2010 to February 18, 2010):
Listen to me, youngsters, it’s never a good thing to burn bridges. Never.
This was a slogan suggestion from a friend of mine. He seems to be having a “difficult” time with science these days. And so this slogans fits his situation perfectly! But I can definitely relate, hah!
If you’re gonna suffer from hallucinations then why not suffer with a friend nearby – even if it’s an imaginary friend. Who cares at this point!
Who here plays wiffleball? I never have. Does that make me less of a man?
Oh good God science is magical. Wow, science, magic and God all in once sentence. Amazing. Hmmm, maybe that should’ve been the slogan instead!
Because, well, we should always tell the truth
At least those Trekkies hope so!
