in Six Things
Oh, now you're just playing with us. You're trying to get us all worked up into a frenzy where we just can't get enough Six Things and then...you'll stop abruptly and make us give you money before you slake our Things jones again.
I like the first and third shirts best—especially the third. It could be dangerous for me to wear that one.
I saw a guy the other day whose t-shirt looked like an eye chart and said something along these lines:
Oh my God, do I love that last one. The problem is that you couldn't appropriately wear it around the people who would most appreciate it...
After my engagement ended, I spent a week navelgazing and drinking alone in South Boston. For some reason, I also listened to a lot of Pet Shop Boys.
The thought crossed my mind, but then my buddies took me to a topless joint. Doubt erased.
So I guess I'm your target market.
Oooh, two in a row! Mael might want the Pet Shop Boys one.
Yeah, that last one's a winner.
I feel the need to make some kind of golf comment, like "well played, sir!"
I'm also tempted to actually CafePress these up.
There are many past Six Things which would make great shirts. This one in particular (i.e. including all six of them on one shirt) would be great.
Ooh, here's what you should totally do -- offer for sale each of these six shirts, and then also sell one which has all six drawn on it, just like in this comic, but at the top it says, "T-shirts you can buy from http://www.sixthings.org/".
Have you looked at CafePress at all? They really make it incredibly easy to create and sell shirts. Like, you could have your first few shirts available for purchase in under an hour. Seriously.
I hear the CafePress shirts are not so durable, but that just means we'd have to buy two and rotate them.
Also, Francis, if you made a clever crossword-related cartoon t-shirt, I bet you could sell a bunch at Stamford... The crossword-themed attire is generally so dorky, but with a Six Things vibe? It could work. And maybe in a cute women's style, too, not just standard unisex tees. (Mona and I will need something fetching.) My commission for this idea is a reasonable $10-15 or an equivalent amount of merchandise.
