To my fellow Fluther grammarians: do you think this deserves to be an official Fluther shirt?

Asked by Buttonstc (22986 points ) February 15th, 2013

Don’t you think it perfectly sums up a large part of the ethos of Fluther?

Would you wear it proudly in the real world?

Your thoughts?

No. It is too busy, too ugly and too derivative.

I still cherish the one that Andrew’s mom sent me years ago…

I am the grammarian about whom your mother warned you.

No thanks, I just want to put a “t” at the beginning of “errorists”. “Errorist” is not a word.

I much prefer this shirt. Please read with a healthy dose of sarcasm.

I also like I cry because others are stupid and it makes me sad.

I like it. :)

It gave me a chuckle.

Jeruba's avatar

It made me cringe.

I remember seeing that shirt and immediately thinking of you, gailcalled.

I’m not a T shirt type :)

Ugh. No, thank you.

Buttonstc's avatar

Well, that was interesting.

Lurve to everybody regardless of pro or con.

For the record, I also think there should have been a “T” to make the word terrorists. I think it would have been much funnier that way :)

I also enjoyed the little write up they did on it, Woot is pretty well known for their cute little descriptive write ups. They have quite a creative and whimsical staff.

@Buttonstc I get the humour – but your question was whether it should be an official Fluther T-shirt. I vote nay. But it was funny – as are the other suggestions here.

I must say, though, Gailcalled’s is fysterically hunny.

Hmm…I love the fist holding a knife. It speaks to me. I’d wear that, but minus all the writing. Save that shit for the headstone.

But an official Fluther shirt needs this.

’‘huggles’’ :D

I really love how there’s pillows and cushions depicting just about everything that exists. You know what would rock? It’s like, Fluther sells merchandise. Key chains, shirts…I myself have a Fluther mug, which was a Christmas gift.
So we should totally have Fluther cushions for sale. Hell, if I were able to make cushions and pillows, I’d offer to make some for the site to sell. Imagine, a cute cushion with Dr. J on it. That would demolish complete ass.

@bookish1
Oh, that pillow is gorgeous; do you know where it is sold ? Or did you just have it on hand from an image search ?

@Symbeline

That’s actually actually a really good idea.

Symbeline's avatar

Well if we ever get more merchandise to buy, the cushions would really rock. :)

augustlan's avatar

I designed this just for you, @Symbeline! Unfortunately, it would cost 60 bucks on our Zazzle store, so I’m not posting it for sale. :(

glacial's avatar

@augustlan How about a pillow cover, in some common throw pillow size?

Symbeline's avatar

@augustlan Whoooa!! It exists! A Fluther pillow! Man that would rock if you could manage to get more made, and sell them. I’d get one for sure. looks all soft and cuddly!

gailcalled's avatar

If you can sew on a button and trace a drawing, you could draw Dr. J on a square of white fabric, hem the edges and use a hemstitch to attach it to any plain covered pillow.

augustlan's avatar

@glacial and @Symbeline Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like Zazzle (which is where we host our Fluther store) offers just the covers. It’s the whole pillow or nothing. $60 seems like an awful lot for a little throw pillow, but that’s what they’d charge. :(

Symbeline's avatar

Bastards. :(

But I can still look at the picture.

Bellatrix's avatar

I think we need Fluther Snuggies.

For the winter Fluther experience. They could have Dr J all over them and be called Fluggies.

gailcalled's avatar

@augustlan: Making a throw pillow covered in plain cotton fabric (old men’s dress shirts are wonderful) is also easy as sewing on a button. I have pillows strewn around that I made and then decorated to suit my fancy. Maybe it’s because I was forced to take Home Ec rather than computer science in jr. high.

Unbroken's avatar

I don’t like it but then I will never be called a Fluther grammarian either.

FutureMemory's avatar

No thanks. Doesn’t strike me as friendly at all. I’m all for reminding people that we have standards, but the going out of our way to let people know we’re geek-proud about it doesn’t seem right.

I’d rather our walking advertisements (Fluther t-shirts) have more substance, or at least something original. A quote from a particularly insightful thread, maybe.

Haleth's avatar

This one is pretty relevant. It would be awesome if it came in teal and pumpkin orange.

Buttonstc's avatar

Did you catch the price? $18–20 for only eight little letters?
Yikes.

But I do like that the word is redacted. I agree that it’s quite Flutherish (for those of us who’ve been around long enough to know about the infamous CIA thread :)

Seek's avatar

@Buttonstc Yes, the CIA thread before all the [Redacted]s got changed to Removed by Fluther Moderators
