Why don't you just cry your leprechaun tears all over it and shrink it that way, Stynxno. We Very Large People (VLP) have no time for your tiny concerns.
posted by Mister_A at 11:47 AM on May 9, 2007 [15 favorites]


I commend you for your entrepreneurial spirit, sir and I will perhaps purchase the shirt, both because I enjoy a good "t-shirt" and because I have such a fondness for metafilter and this is a good a way as any to support it, as I sneaked in before it cost money to join and my religion forbids the use or purchase of sockpuppets.

I would like to point out, however -and I say this only because I care- in that photo of you on the front page, wearing your t-shirt, it looks for all the world as if you are looking down with a strong dose of pride and a hint of coquettishness, sweetly amused that you are wearing your lovely new t-shirt and NOTHING ELSE AT ALL. So I say, sir, please, sir, where are your pants? Are funds that low? I will express you some pants if you need them. There is no need to go about your business bottomless.*

*That is you matt, is it not? If not, if I am mistaken, please be aware that your model seems to have no covering on his lower limbs, that's a little weird bro. You can wear a t-shirt and pants, surely, even in the communard bohemias of whatever pot grove in Oregon that you live.

I'm curious to see how these sell, actually. Part of me would be shocked if they didn't move and fast, but the other part of me has about 700 CDs still sitting in a friend's basement.

But t-shirts are a lot more approachable of a concept than compilation albums—there's no explanation needed, so that may lower the threshold a lot. And you can't wear a CD around town.

I'll jump on the bandwagon and request some smaller sizing (though don't make them baby-doll shirts. I hate baby-doll shirts!).

And I got to like the point of hovering my mouse pointer over the 'PAY' button, but I've gotten so weird over the years about spending money on things I want but don't really need that I couldn't bring myself to click. Same thing with the comp CD, cortex, for which I apologize. I have become a bit of a freak, that way.
