RichieLaw: GreatGlavinsGhost: RichieLaw: ArcadianRefugee: RichieLaw: Kumana Wanalaia: Hey what are the chances of giving people the option to buy a t-shirt with a print of the onion 'shop of Biden washing a TransAm?

They have those instant-order shirt printers now.... I googled "instant shirt print" and got a ton of hits.

One site quotes $6 per shirt. Apparently there is a lot of variety in the style of shirt (mens, women's, hooded sweatshirt, etc) and colors.

Could this be set up so people can order a shirt for say, $20 on indiegogo with a click or two, so it's not a case of "donate $20 and we'll link you to a shirt printer so you can make your own Biden shirt with your own pic"

I did a mockup yesterday and no one seemed interested in going through with it. I think the t-shirt idea is perfect.

I would rec selling it at the 30$ level though to maximize donations and cover the cost of the shirts.

While the image is a meme, it is still property The Onion, no? Wouldn't ya need permission?

Possibly. I would contact them just to be safe, but I'm pretty sure that we have a really valid fair use argument. In addition to the fact that the Onion has made no effort to curb third party usage of the photograph.

Have you found out who's been tweeting? Cyclometh is @JoeBidensTransA, but I don't know who's doing @GiveJoeTheBird.

GiveJoeTheBird was recently given to me for safekeeping. The owner wishes to stay anonymous. So I will just thank him and her for his or her service! I am currently looking for an enterprising individual to take over the twitter account. Any takers?

If you're interested please post your funniest #givejoethebird tweet and we'll decide who gets to take over. I'll end the competition tonight at 10p.m. Central.


Wow. Okay. Thank you!

I like it. Would putting the fark thread deter people from getting the shirt though?

I just wanted to put something on the back, because there was a back to print on.

Alternatives:

Behold the power of Fark
Smilin' Joe's got my back
HA! HA!


How about just this on the back:

It's a BFD.

That is awesome! I am tempted to get it. I want the car to match the real car almost exactly though, so I'm wondering if we should wait till the actual car is purchased.

Presuming that this goes through (and it looks like it will) don't forget the little American flag on the TransAm that the Onion 'shop has.

Heaven forfend that you leave out that flag.

If we don't reach the goal, the funds raised will be split between the four charities, minus the cost of a die-cast Trans-Am and the printing costs to send a card with all the donor's names to VP Biden.

I think his implication is that because it's a FF campaign, that the money would go into someone's pocket and that would be it.

Let's not be nasty to anyone; if they're off-base they can get caught up and if they're just being a douche being nasty to them is what they want.
