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!

Coty’s Thoughts:

If You Wish Upon A Star by Tom Neal and available at Teextile. Pros: Love the shirt, great design! Nice gradient effect, most likely achieved through Direct-To-Garment printing. Printed on an American Apparel blank so you know I like the fit and softness of the shirt. Overall, a solid shirt. Cons: Not tagless. Not many extras here, just a solid shirt, I guess that helps to keep the costs down. Price: $12

Teextile

Make Wellness Not War by I Am Wellness. Pros: Lots of things to love about the package from I Am Wellness. Shirts were individually packaged in plastic to keep out odors and liquids from damaging the shirt. The cut and sew elements, from the custom neck tag to the seam tag on the lowert portion of this shirt was well done, as was the custom hangtag. Included with the Baseball tee (not reviewed here but will be in a future episode) were Bazooka Bubblegum and an Upper Deck baseball card, as well as an I Am Wellness card and sticker. The Make Wellness Not War shirt was printed on an American Apparel Tri-Blend blank, which was super soft, I loved the feel of it and the fit was magnificent. It looks like the I Am Wellness people put a lot of effort and thought into their product and brand. I loved it and I highly recommend I Am Wellness! Cons: What cons? Price: $27.95.

Make Wellness Not War

Meat Is Murder. Tasty, tasty murder. by Stu and available at Threadless. I “got” this shirt but many of my friends did not “get it” (poor souls). And for the record, I am a carnivore and will never, ever, ever, become vegetarian. It’s just not in my DNA. Price: $15.00.

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!
