Same time, same(ish) place. Ready? Go! As always, friendly derby discussion is of course also welcome.


Foreman: I think your argument is specious.
House: I think your tie is ugly.

* * * * *

Cameron: Men should grow up.
House: Yeah. And dogs should stop licking themselves. It's not gonna happen.

* * * * *

Foreman: Yeah, you're all about nurturing.
House: Do you need a hug?

* * * * *

Cameron: You want me to tell a man whose wife is about to die that she may have cheated on him?
House: No, I want you to be polite and let her die.

* * * * *

House: Perseverance does not equal worthiness. Next time you want to get my attention, wear something fun. Low-riding jeans are hot.

* * * * *

Cuddy: How is waking me up in the middle of the night to lie to a patient supposed to convince me you're better than House?
Foreman: [holds up coffee] I brought you coffee?

* * * * *

Wilson: Even I don't like you!
House: Words can hurt you know.

* * * * *

Foreman: How'd she get to you?
House: She's the CEO of Sonyo cosmetics. Three assistants and fifteen VPs checked out who should be treating her. Who da man? I da man. I always suspected.

(from House M.D. -- quite possibly my favorite show)

Probably nearly instantly.

EDIT: You should probably do "Pucker Up" or some variation.

Thank you. I'll spare the woot world this inappropriate entry.

Sadly, "Pucker Up, Buttercup" was used in Ferris Bueller's Day Off, when the principal thought he was on the phone with Ferris who was impersonating Sloan's father, but really he was on the phone with Camron who was impersonating Sloan's father, and boy did he apologize when Grace the receptionist told him Bueller was actually calling in on line 2!

I like "Pucker Up, Buttercup." Too bad it's been said before.

I love House.

I have dibs on "Walking Disaster".

There's an Amy Winehouse tee with that on it, but it has her photo also, so it specifically refers to her personally. Would that count? I googled it AFTER having the idea.

Remember, "Pow! Right in the kisser!" from Looney Tunes?? Maybe you should make a variation (parody) with "POW! Right in the Pucker!" Maybe make POW! one of those explosion picture things.

I think that counts. They will probably be very strict about it.

When I get back I'm looking up "Walking Contradiction." Also, if woot says we can do foreign languages (I asked in the main derby thread) I'm doing a Japanese one that says, "I'm Better Than You."

I think it's okay if it's been SAID before, just not if it's been put on a t-shirt before. Right? I mean, if it's a slogan, it's been said.

Ooh, I just thought of a shirt I had in the 70s - when my grandma saw it, she smacked me on the butt. Heh - I may do a variation on that theme.

What if the shirt said "I'm distressed" ?

I think I'm going to have to do that now.

no kidding! I've got 2 entries being fiddled with now

tip for the day - search cafepress and zazzle for your slogan before working on anything, otherwise you'll have to scrap it and dash your hopes against the rocky shores.

or something like that

I'll consider it, but it may be quicker just to churn out the shirts and not worry about searching. ;)

Well most of my submissions will be my own ideas, and my mind is not great enough to think like others.

If I make a shirt with the letters I, D, I, O, AND T all in a row, will it be filtered to read WAFFLES! TASTY WAFFLES! instead?

Both of my first two ideas are already shirts on cafepress... but with boring fonts. Oh well.

See, I would never want one of these, because I always look both ways.

And, dude, why didn't you use Times New Roman?

What, Rounded Arial Black not basic enough?

This shirt just reminds you of the time you didn't. Consider it a safety shirt for Manhattan Thursdays (like today!). Speaking of which, maybe I'll make one of those up too!

It's called "Manhattan Thursday" and not "Manhattans Thursday" for a reason, but thanks for the tip.

Your right, today's not just "any Thursday," it's a special Manhattan Thursday! HOORAY!
