TypeTees Slogan-A-Day Experiment Week 3

Another week and another set of slogans for my epic TypeTees Slogan-A-Day Experiment. I am starting to feel some fatigue but I will not let it get to me. I will push on until Threadless Gods deems me worthy of a print – boing! To see all of my slogans and to vote for them check out my Threadless profile page. Vote for me and I will make bake you a cake if ever we meet in real life.


I can read your mind. Yes.

No real story behind this one, I think I had something I previously planned to submit but then at the last minute I thought of this one. Yes, that’s right.

I make great animal sounds. Pinch me for a live demo.

Indeed I do make great animal sounds. Ask anyone in my family. I make very very very good animal sounds. I specialize mainly in house pets but can do some darn good farm animals.

The best part of a ham sandwich is the hypotenuse.

This I got after I saw someone on Twitter (sorry I can’t remember who) say that their girlfriend said the most genius thing, that she loved the hypotenuse of her sandwich. I thought that was brilliant.

I spike my hair for self defense.

I’ve gone back to the spiky hair after a long year and half sporting the long hair look. And I love having short hair again, especially since I can easily poke people I don’t like with the razor sharp spiky hair.

When I grow up I want to be a swashbuckler.

No, I wasn’t watching Pirates of the Caribbean at the time this slogan was conceived. I believe I was reading an article on Yahoo and the word swashbuckler came up. Thought it sounded great. And for the record, I don’t reaaaaallly want to be a swashbuckler when I grow up. 

I really really really really really like ice cream, a lot.

Oh, this one was inspired by a professor of mine while were discussing the infinite properties of language. And one point during the talk he had said that same thing (probably with more r’s) and then explained how he could have been the very first person to have said that, ever. And for the record, I like mint chocolate chip ice cream and cherry Garcia the most and maybe pralines and cream. 

I use headphones to block out the noises in my head.

No, I’m not schizo. I just realizes that I need a new pair of Bose headphones because mine are becoming very worn out and is leaving awkward black scum on my ear lobes. At least that’s what the noises inside my head told me.

TypeTees Slogan-A-Day Experiment Week 2

Week two of my epic TypeTees Slogan-A-Day Experiment has wrapped up and I haven’t flinched yet. I’m getting the hang of submitting daily and have even gotten into the routine of jotting down potential slogans into my iPhone whenever they come to me. And they come to me at the oddest moments. It’s a good thing iPhone follows me wherever I go! To see all of my slogans and to vote for them check out my Threadless profile page. Vote for me and I will make you a grilled cheese sandwich if ever we meet in real life. 


This is my Handkerchief whenever no one is looking.

This is true! Especially when I am sick and only when I am desperate and without a box of tissues. 

I am a vegan trickster. Want to taste some tofu bacon?

I was watching the latest episode of Diggnation and Gary Vaynerchuk was a guest on the show. He was giving Hippie Glenn (Glenn McElhose) a hard time and at one point Kevin claimed that Glenn (who is a vegan) ate some bacon at his home. Gary then called him a vegan tricker. 

No sledding in the cemetery. It’ll wake the dead.

Hmmm, I believe I saw a photo on Flickr (I should have saved it for reference) that said No Sledding in the Cemetery. Apparently, it was a real sign posted at a real cemetery. The last pat of the slogan was my addition – I think it works!

My inbox is bigger than your inbox. And that’s not a good thing.

My email inbox has been getting swamped for some reason lately. And that is definitely not a good thing. It does, though, mean that people want to talk to me and so in that respect I guess it’s a good thing!

A lifetime of bacon trumps the slim chance of eternity in heaven.

Threadless chief operating officer Jeffrey Kalmikoff made the following tweet: “@skaw For me, a lifetime filled with bacon trumps the slim to none chance of eternity in heaven. Besides, no bacon in heaven? No thanks.” I thought it was brilliant. I had to trim it to fit the slogan limit but I got it to work. Thanks Jeffrey!

cut and paste. Where would I be without

Cut and paste has got to be one of the greatest computing inventions. EVER! You’d be surprised to find out how many times a day you use cut and paste. I know I use it a lot! Show cut and paste some love and vote for this one.

Pinch me once, shame on you. Pinch me twice and I pinch back.

This slogan was inspired by an episode of Judge Judy. I believe somebody was blaming somebody of pinching their kid. Really people, pinching? Learn to pinch back!

TypeTees Slogan-A-Day Week 1

Week one of my epic TypeTees Slogan-A-Day Experiment has just wrapped up. Wheww, and I have to admit that I am mentally exhausted! I underestimated how hard it would be to come up with just one original slogan a day. It’s hard guys. Luckily, I’ve employed a bit of strategy. All of the slogan submissions some way had to do with an event or something that I experienced during the day. This helped. And so every Friday I will break down my seven Typetees submissions of the week … until I get printed by Threadless! So, if you’re sick of this then vote me up so Threadless hurries and prints me! Or, if you enjoy the slogan – go ahead and give me some I’d Wear It’s, it will make me smile.

My question for those of you who have submitted to TypeTees and have been printed – how long do you guys think this will take? What are the chances that any of my slogans will ever see the light of day on a TypeTees tee?


I used to be fierce. Now I’m ruthless!

Interesting, this was my inaugural TypeTees slogan entry. What was I thinking! And no, I was not listing to Beyonce prior to hitting submit. I actually just wrapped up watching Punisher: Warzone and this popped in my mind. Best of the three Punisher picks, BTW. 

What kind of egg are you?

Eggs! This one was easy since on this day I was inspired by some of the best Eggs Benedict on the island. And being from Hawaii, it’s not just any Eggs Benedict – it’s Eggs Benedict on Kalua Pork from Cinnamon’s in beautiful Kailua. Great way to spend a Sunday morning!

This is me in high definition.

I believe I was flipping through the weekly Bestbuy ad when I realized that everything “good” nowadays must be high definition. And well, me in person is in fact me in high definition, so there you go. 

My life fits in a manila folder.

Very true. I’m an academic by training. I love school. When I finish grad school I plan to get a job as a University professor hence prolonging my stay in school indefinitely. And so, my life which is consumed by reading and reading over and over again research articles can literally fit in a manila folder. Just throw a couple of relevant articles into a manila folder on any given day and I am set.

Please do not lean on torso.

I went to go and eat some char siu pork ramen from one of my favorite ramen restaurants, Goma Tei. While waiting to go in I noticed a Do Not Lean on Glass warning on a neighboring shops window. 

Four words: listen to the woman.

If you’ve got a girl in your life – listen to her! That’s all I’m going to say here. Best advice ever.

All you need to do to join my fan club is give me a hug.

If I had a fan club, the price to join would be a hug because hugs are one of the worlds greatest inventions.

TypeTees Slogan-A-Day Experiment

So here’s the experiment – I plan to come up with a slogan every day and submit it to the ongoing Threadless TypeTees slogan contest. The slogan will probably be based on something that I did or experienced during the day. Today, I watched Punisher: War Zone and came up with this, my first entry – a little grim for Threadless but it’s what I came up with!

And you don’t have to worry, I won’t flood the blog with my daily slogan entries, instead I’ll mention it on Twitter! Every Friday I’ll do a little wrap up post with the entries and I’ll post this on the blog and hopefully I’ll score more “I’d wear it” votes than “Um, stupid” votes!

Let’s see how long it takes for me to get a Coty slogan printed! How long do you guys think this will take? A few weeks, months, years?! Oh gosh, what did I get myself into!

What are you waiting for – go vote on my first entry (clicking on the image and voting I’d wear it will make me smile automatically no matter where I am in the world)! 

I Used To be Fierce. Now I'm Ruthless!

PS: If you’re wondering about the movie – I liked it! Much better than the previous two versions. A lot more gritty, graphic and vulgar – very Punisher like!
