Re: Jésus Fish!


I dont think I get it anyway, but I think its gonna be rejected bc the shirt doesnt match the comp. You have writing in the comp.

Nothing like a good shirt.woot argument. Gets me through a whole class.

What happens when Jesus has an accent? He becomes Jésus!

They usually let it slide unless theres an obvious conflict between the two. I think it's clear that there's no text in the design itself. The might reject it for misspelling "It's" but that's another issue.

Anyway, I like it.

And since we're all jumping on the bandwagon, you misspelled Jesús.

So is it supposed to be in Spanish? 'Cause I'm pretty sure you wanna check the accent on that.

Ok ok, you guys win. My spelling leaps into the vacuum and so does my grammar. Don't we all screw up occasionally? Even actors have the occasional mis-take!

Lol, I don't know what happened with that last comment, "leaps into the vacuum" was supposed to be "leaps into the vacuum". Weird.

Will probably get rejected for not being a pun.

Yes, I did mean "Jesús", and I meant "It's". Neither are on the shirt though so don't worry.

P.S. If you spell S-U-K-S correctly in a Woot comment it will be changed to something else!

Re: Jésus Fish!


So I really regret starting the whole spelling/grammarfest. My intention was to mention that the full shirt comp doesn't have text so this won't be rejected for having text. Then I humorously (and good-naturedly, I hope) pointed out the missing apostrophe for good measure. And I committed the same mistake I was pointing out (serves me right) as well as another misspelling because I had shifted the words/sentence around and didn't proofread. What I find to be funniest, though, is that there is no text in the design so all the spelling discussion is moot as far as the shirt is concerned! I think it's an amusing design, but I didn't vote for it because I wouldn't buy it. However, I think it's a pun because it does exploit the ambiguity between Jesus and Jesús.

Yes, but most people (that I know) refer to them as Jesus fish.

I think this shirt is pretty silly. :-)
