TypeTees Slogan-A-Day Experiment Week 4

Every day I come up with a new witty Threadless TypeTees Slogan in hopes of earning a Threadless Alumni Club Medal of Honor. 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 your own strawberry shortcake if ever we meet in real life.

TypeTees Slogan-A-Day Experiment

Week 4 (January 22, 2010 to January 28, 2010):

If MacGyver was in a pickle, he’d probably eat his way out.

Forget duct tape. His teeth would be his greatest asset if ever trapped in a pickle.

Pilates keep pirates busy when they aren’t pillaging.

Nice use of P’s don’t you think? I don’t do pilates but then again, I’m not a bonafide pirate. I wish I was a pirate, though.

I’m sure grass grew fine before humans existed. Save water.

Every morning on my way to work I encounter a man. A man that loves to water his grass. He loves to water his grass a bit too much. He waters his grass a lot. In the morning and in the afternoon. This man should save water.

Strawberry fields forever means one thing: infinite shortcake!

Another Beatles infused theme. I love the Beatles and was listening to this hit when I came up with this slogan. Strawberry shortcake – who’s a fan? I am!

Lycanthropes: always ready for a good costume party.

Ahh, the werewolf. Growing up one of my favorite movies was Teen Wolf with Michael J. Fox. I recently bought the Teen Wolf & Teen Wolf Too DVD ($12 at Amazon) and although the movie wasn’t as “great” as I had remembered it as a 6 year old, I still had a blast laughing at the 80’s.

Evil people cut grass and actually enjoy it.

I’m sure that our favorite serial killer, Dexter (The Complete Third Season, $24 at Amazon), experiences some sort of weird gratification when cutting grass. It’s just a hunch.

Imagine if keyboards actually hit back.

If keyboards actually fought back then things could get nasty, especially since they have over 100 keys on the standard keyboard.

Red Riding Hood

I’m typically very critical when it comes to all-over-prints. I’m just not a big fan of them. But this tee by shantyshawn and available at Design By Humans is the exception to that rule. I actually really dig it and love how the red pops against the black and white backdrop. It’s available now for purchase for a cool $25. 

Although the earliest known print of this story originates from 17th century French folklore, and was included in the 1697 collection, Tales of Mother Goose by Charles Perrault, it’s the Brothers Grimm version that we have come to know and love. You see, in Perrault’s version, there is no happy ending. The wolf eats both little red riding hood and her grandmother and there is no happy ending. In the Brothers Grimm version, a hunter saves little red riding and her grandmother and then drowns the wolf. Such dark undertones for a child’s story, don’t you think?
