When I couldn't find any other shirts out there, I figured it must've been one of those nobody-goes-there-because-it's-too-crowded kind of things (or one of those elephant-in-the-room things) and so I decided to take a tip from the Captain himself and make one. (I've always thought it'd be useful to have a superhero on your team that could never miss anything obvious and would never be afraid to point it out.) Even after I made the design, I double-checked to make sure no one had beat me to the punch. Turns out I missed someone who had. Don't know why their shirt didn't get more votes than it did.
Did anyone check on the dates of the other Captain Obvious shirts out there? Were they ones I just missed, or did they really start springing up after the contest here? I'm not claiming that anybody stole my idea. That would just be stupid, like trying to take credit for making a "No sh*t, Sherlock" or an "I'm not a rocket scientist" shirt. I'm just curious.
Thanks for the pleasant comments. Didn't expect to win here, but it was slightly disappointing to find my entry disqualified from a contest it was invited to. I hope that doesn't happen to a lot of the shirts.
I have a Captain Obvious shirt that I bought almost a year ago from Cafe Press.
