The "tea" could be a lot clearer, but I enjoy the idea behind the design. Thumbs up!

Sing along Admiral Ackbar! The MI was going to be a person pointing to themselves BUT I remember sign language being a cause for rejection. I think I killed the funniness with two state abbreviations but, hey, I like it =]

The siplicity, but at the same time the puzzle of figuring this out make it a real winner for me. I hope this gains speed and prints.

Sorry, this just took me way too long to figure out. Cute when I got it, but not executed well enough.

The title helped me figure it out pronto. Someone looking at it without the title might not get it, but I would have no qualms about singing to help them figure it out. The states make it a bit obscure, but what's wrong with a puzzle!?

I woulda probably gotten this if Maine (ME) was drawn without one of the great lakes or whatever that is in the upper left.

It is actually Michigan, MI.

But for the musically inclined, we use "Mi" for the 3rd step of a major scale and "me" for a minor scale. :-)

And it should be "re" rather than "Ray"

Ah Hah!!! That would explain why I had a hard time making the connection. I used the wrong ME... MI not ME. That state makes a much better Michigan than it does a Maine! Thanks!

haha yeah, now I realize what you're asking, uh, that's the UP (upper peninsula). It's funny because I go to university in Michigan and we had to explain what U.P. meant to the texans, alaskans, oreganites, and new yorkers lolll.

Which university? I'm a former Techie myself; that's why I was so excited to see the U.P. (and even Isle Royale) included as part of MI. Many people forget that MI has two parts. It's good to know at least one other wooter knows about the U.P. :D

There is only one FINITE way to spell "deFINITEly."

Re: It's a Von Trapp!


I really like the concept, but some of it's a bit unclear. Perhaps using an image of the Egyptian god Re would have been better instead of a drippy sun? Although then you'd lose the song reference.
And can someone please explain how the last one is Ti?

"Fa, a long long way to run" is perhaps the stupidest song lyric in all of musical history.

But I dig the shirt, though I think the image for mi/me could be better, especially since most of the images refer to the song lyrics themselves - a person/figure pointing to himself would work better than the state (though I'd let it slide for La, because you can't really show it as 'a note to follow sol'). I'd also change the tea bag to a teacup, personally.

Fun concept.

I couldn't use the pointing b/c that is sign language... it would have gotten rejected. Thanks =]

"Ti" looks like a lamp. What is it supposed to be? Shouldn't it be a cup of tea?

OK, Now I see it's a tea bag.

Also, if we weren't sticking to the song, I think a Manta Ray would make a much more obvious and funny "re."
