VE's New Shirts - Part 1

Whenever I get motivated to bring my T-shirt business up, I'm going to need some more product than just the "Fork U" one I created awhile back.

I thought I'd go with a series of State quotes too. We'll give 'em to you 10 prototypes at a time...


















You can just imagine the next set I'll share...

Yup, traffic does have it's own zip code here. Sigh. Sign me up for one.

God bless.

Beth said...

How about doing one for Canada? Not all the provinces - just the country.
I'd like to see what you come up with. ;)

Clobe, but no (illegal) cigar. Down here in Florida, "New Cuba" is only in Miami. The rest of the state's Latino population is composed of a lot of Puerto Ricans and transient Mexicans.

The Incredible Woody said...

I cannot wait to see what you will come up with for TN!

Anne said...

cute.

Roy said...

Heh, heh! Good job, VE. Although for Alaska I was thinking more along the lines of: "The first line of national defense - you can see Russia from here!"

Perpetual Chocoholic said...

I like Deleware's.

Roy Scribner said...

Idaho: Why are we a state, again?

Elizabeth said...

Lol, that's true about Alaska. And if you drive it's the only state you need a passport to get to!

secret agent woman said...

The Alabama one would probably be funnier to non-Southerners? I've lived in several Southern states and I don't mind it being humid as long as it is warm. I HATE cold weather.

VE said...

Mrsupole – That’s the trouble with nice weather all the time!

Beth – Good idea…I’ll add that to the end of the list…watch for it…

Sharonheg – Well somebody has to do the landscaping!

Incredible woody – But you’re gonna have to…that will be in installment four or five…

Anne – My motto is abuse for all…

Roy – I know…I have seen it…in fact, I’ve been to Russia from there

Perpetual chocoholic – I don’t think we’re going to get them to change it though…get it…change…nevermind

Roy – Only so they can get federal funding for their secret compounds…

Elizabeth – You have a point…but being in Juneau…you don’t drive much of anywhere!

Secret agent woman – I’m a non-Southerner and its funny as hell…but I see your point

Gladys said...

What about Texas?

What about Idaho?

Are you discriminating?

Subby said...

L-M-A-O! Alaska, true! California~HA! Never had a problem spellin' em tho' except for Tennessee...hey! I got it! I think...

CatLadyLarew said...

Being originally from Iowa, I can't wait to see what you might come up with for that.

nursemyra said...

I like Connecticut

tackyraccoons.com said...

Iowa's a state? I always thought it was Ohio mispronounced.

Janna said...

Ok... Here's why I'm smiling:
I'm a nit-picky spelling-obsessed nerd, so I loved the one about how Connecticut has foiled student spellers.

Which is why it was so ironic that the next shirt had a spelling error in it.
It's Delaware instead of Deleware.

But that's ok. You're still awesome, and I'm choosing to believe you did it on purpose as a subtle nod to comedic irony.

I realize this means Michigan's shirt is going to have a really mean slogan on it now.
Like "Michigan: Home of the nit-picky spelling-obsessed nerds whose names rhyme with banana".

Please don't hurt me.

Brian Miller said...

The Silver Fox said...

lime said...

VE said...

Gladys – Are you reading? This was part 1 of 5! ;)

Subby – Apparently I have a problem spelling Delaware that I was Unaware of…

Catladylarew – It’s coming up in the next installment…

Janna – Ha! Good catch. Damn…

Brian – Glad I got them right…there are a few states I haven’t been to yet…

Reforminggeek – Just wait until I get to Texas!

Silver fox – Go ahead, say it anyway…oh, wait, you did

Aladdinsane12 – Muhahaha…it’s coming in the next installment…

Lime – At least the Amish can get a stylish condo then…

Megan said...

Yeah, the Delaware thing...just tell me when we get to Takesus.

VE said...

megan - Don't know much about history, don't know much about biology, don't know much about Delaware, don't know much but I know how to swear...

C said...

HA! These are GREAT!!! Love it!

Serena said...

Can't wait to see what you do with Virginia.:)

Jaime said...

i'm afraid to see what you and the gnomes do to jersey.

VE said...

c - And there are more to come...

serena - That one is probably in the last installment...

jaime - Many have wondered what to do with Jersey...

Carla said...

Where can we buy them?

VE said...

carla - At the store in my mind...

Cheryl said...

Having now plowed back through all 50 states and Canada, soon to be part of this great nation of ours, I've got to say, California is the best of the lot.

Where's my prize?

VE said...

cheryl - Excellent...your prize is awaiting you in Atlantas...just follow the other treasure hunters...
