Great design I love the show/band your shirt is "inspired" by. But tell me will I make all the ladies in the area pregnant while wearing this shirt?

This would be the third time I have used a variant of the hungry hippos. The first time was "blamestorm" and it took 4th place. The second was for dreams, and Joel rejected it.

This time there is only one hippo instead of 4, and the changes are significant enough to not be rejected.

I love FOTC, but would agree that the addition of a rhymnoceros would make this shirt a real contender. I'd definitely buy it if there was a rhymnoceros, but as it stands it looks a little too much like a hungry hippo listening to his stereo. I think the FOTC reference is lost.

i like the illustration but i'm not sold on the placement. i haven't seen the others that people are referring to so i won't say anything about re-using the hungry hungry hippo image

Keyser, I just wanted to thank you for the link to the video. Without having watched an episode, I bought the dvd of the first season for my son for Christmas when I heard it matched his taste. Until now, however, I hadn't seen any exerpts from the show. Wow! Spent last evening watching all the videos on youtube. So funny! Now I'm getting the dvd back from my son. Just wished he would have shared with me before. If you hadn't linked the video, I probably never would have seen it.

p.s. I enjoyed the appearance of your hippos and the reappearance in clever ways. (Love the sunglasses.) GMV.

I wish there was a rhymnocerous on here as well.
Too bad because I love the reference.
