Eat More Kale: Chik-Fil-A Big Bully?

Bo Muller-Moore has a beef with Chik-Fil-A. Or, Chik-Fil-A has a beef with Bo Muller-Moore. Muller-Moore is a folk artist who started a business centered around the phrase “eat more kale.” The more problem is that the fast food chain Chik-Fil-A has a similar trademarked phrase, “eat mor chikin.”

Apparently, the Chik-Fil-A folks feel that the phrase “eat more kale” will confuse Chik-Fil-A fans. A lawyer for Chick-fil-A sent a letter to Muller-Moore saying that his kale phrase “is likely to cause confusion of the public and dilutes the distinctiveness of Chick-fil-A’s intellectual property and diminishes its value.”

BULLSHIT.

I’m totally with Bo Muller-Moore on this one. Seriously Chik-Fil-A, you should consider focusing more of your time, energy, and resources on improving your chicken entrees. Leave the kale alone.

Two Peas … In A Pod

Know someone that you just can’t stay away from? Well, this is just the shirt for you! Two Peas In A Pod is a pair of teas from Lil’ LoveDriven that will appeal to anyone who appreciates all things cute. But seriously, if you don’t thing this T-Shirt is cute then something must be wrong with you. Think of all the possibilities, you could wear this T-Shirt when you and your significant other:

  1. Go shopping together
  2. Watch a sports game together
  3. Go Jogging together
  4. Eat together
  5. Watch a movie together

You get the idea, right? This T-Shirt is pretty much perfect anytime you and yours do something together. Well, in theory it is. I’m not so sure how great of an idea it would be in practice. Maybe the first couple of times, at the very least! Still, that doesn’t take away from the cute factor!

Two Peas In A Pod is available now from Lil’ LoveDriven for $24.99. You choose both a male and female sized T-Shirt and you receive both with your order!

Freshly Squeezed Orange

I like oranges. I’m not the biggest orange fan in the world, but I do like them. I prefer my oranges to be warm whenever I have to peel them myself. If they’ve already been peeled and are in wedge form, then I prefer them cold. All told, I’m an apple guy.

Fresh Orange is a great T-Shirt that I discovered over at Defunkt, a UK based T-Shirt company. The shirt is the second in a series that were made in collaboration with Ryan Chapman, a graphic designer from the UK. According to the product page, “Ryan has a thing for old fruit stickers and Defunkt has a thing for anything old, so this adaptation made perfect sense.”

The included stickers rock. And I especially love that Dole and Del Monte are included in the sticker pack. Did you know that the Dole Pineapple Plantation as well as the Del Monte Plantation is located right here in sunny Hawaii. We might not be able to grow oranges, but our pineapple are pretty rad.

Fresh Orange is available now at Defunkt Shirt Company for $29.99.

Unique LA Spotlight: MNKR

If you don’t think that the Carnivore vs. Veggie tee is awesome then you are not human! As I was perusing MNKR’s offerings, this particular design caught my eye. It’s an obvious play on those vintage boxing posters, which I am also a fan of. This California based maker of crafty tees definitely has some interesting designs. The Future Is Now features nice type treatment and Salon Lady is vintage chic.

MNKR has been around for quite some time now, 7 years to be exact. However, they just received a Registered Trademark for MNKR. Wondering what MNKR stands for? Looking for a name, the founder decided to go with one that start with the same letter as his own name, which is M. He went with MNKR, which is short for “moniker”, which is another word for “a name.” Interesting, huh!

You can find MNKR at Unique LA in Booth 208.

TypeTees Slogan-A-Day Experiment

Week 8 (February 19, 2010 to February 25, 2010):

In case of fire: stop, drop and boogie the night away.

OK kids, you should never kid when it comes to fire. BUT..the old tip of stop, drop and roll makes me want to do a boogie woogie like its 1963. Not sure why. LOL.

Mangos. Such a sexist fruit.

It actually would be funny if Mangos were called WOMANGOS. Doesn’t seem to roll off the tongue in quite the same way, huh, HUH!

Turquoise: kind of green, sort of blue, and very indecisive.

Oh, I really like this one! Because sometimes, colors can be indecisive. Take violet, for example – that color always seems as if it wants to be more blue then it does purple. And don’t even get me started with teal. Ugh, that teal.

Drawers keep shirts safe, but they can’t draw for beans.

It really is a shame that drawers aren’t multi-talented. Then again, they do an excellent job of keeping my pants and socks safe as well. And lets not forget those undergarments.

Sexy Is Relative.

Because it is!

I might be a little weird but I am very friendly.

You can be as weird as you want to be. As long as you’re friendly, we’re cool.

Spinach: Proven to increase bicep size (in sailors only).

Because we all know what happens when Popeye eats a can spinach! I love to have spinach with my salads, though, the Spinach Effect seems to have no influence on me.

The Mysterious Mr. Vegan Hunter

Our old friend Jon Wye has just released his newest T-Shirt which is part of his Pirate Chef series. The shirt is called The Mysterious Mr. Vegan Hunter and it features a fatherly rabbit who is relaxing in his rabbit-hole study, reminiscing on his days of great harvesting. He is even taking a little time to enjoy a good vintage of carrot juice whilst polishing his most trusted shovel.

I think the shirt features a super fun design that would have probably gone very well with the Threadless crowd if it had been submitted there. You’ll also find the Pirate Chef logo printed on the back of the T-Shirt.

The Mysterious Mr. Vegan Hunter is printed on a super soft 100% combed cotton Olive T-Shirt and is available now from Jon Wye for $29. For extra savings, use the coupon code “5up” for $5 off your entire order!

Trash and Nightmare from Glennz Tees

Looks like Glennz Tees is making voter selected tees a standard now. Here are two of his latest designs, Trash (top) and Nightmare (bottom). Trash is available on a slate colored American Apparel blank and Nightmare on a forest blank. Both are available now for $19.95. 

Trash is a must-have for geeks! That trash can, for some reason, reminds me of the System 7 iteration of the Mac OS. 

In other news, Glennz Tees has begun selling children sized tees. Currently, there are 7 children sized tees available for $19.95.
