Would you like a Button? October 12, 2018 6:23 AM   Subscribe

Would you like a 1.25" button (pin) featuring the "There is No Cabal" design? This is not a rhetorical question.

Hi there!

I had some round 1.25" buttons made with the Seal of the Cabal by robocop is bleeding.

Would you like one?

Here are some pictures. They are kind of bad pictures, but the actual physical objects are quite nice and professionally made.

Currently, I have 50 (well, 49) buttons, and I'd like to mail one to you!
Please tell me if you'd like one below. I'll get back to you (eventually) through a private message to get your mailing address, and to ask for $2 to cover shipping and production costs. Any extra profit will be donated back to the site.

This was done with admin knowledge and approval.

Oh, hell yes!

I already have 27 pieces of flair on my work ID lanyard now, with space for just one or two more -- and this would be perfect!

Now, wenestvedt, you know it's up to you whether or not you want to just do the bare minimum. Or... well, like cortex, for example, has thirty seven pieces of flair, okay. And a terrific smile.

Although if you understand the numeric references on the design, you may be part of the cabal.

Nothing too unusual. Mostly kittens, with the occasional puppy for the sake of balance.

Hi y'all. Just wanted to pop in and say that 2nd round domestic buttons were dropped off at the mail today, so hopefully they should make it to your mailbox in a few days. 2nd round international people, I haven't forgotten you! Hang in there.

Thanks everyone for your patience!

If you were in the first round and still haven't gotten yours - uh - let me know. If you were in the second round and haven't gotten yours in a week or so, let me know also.

Got mine a dew days ago! The packaging led to a confused, but amusing, conversation with my husband (I was in the shower when he went down the road to get the mail) until I finally figured out what it was. Anyway, it's a great little pin. Thanks, wym!

I just successfully identified a mefite in the wild by their button. (Hi, Capricorn!)

Also, it turns out excitedly gesturing at a weird eldritch sigil and saying "Oh wow! It worked!" makes bystanders somewhat confused.

I had forgotten all about this, but just received a (mangled) envelope inside a special envelope from the USPS containing an apology. But, in a MetaFilter Miracle, the button was undamaged!! Thank you, wym!!

I too received mine in an apologetic USPS baggie and it was likewise unharmed. Placed it on the violin case I carry from school to school and I look forward to children treating me with increased respect as is befitting a pin-haver. :). Thanks, wym!
