Re: The Alchemist's Spork


I might sub one without the slogan, not sure if the joke is subtle enough... An opinions?

This is enormously funny; just the mere idea of "the alchemist's spork" is enough to make me laugh, and the overall design is well-executed. The slogan implies a double-entendre that isn't inherent in the design (IMHO); I suspect some will prefer the slogan, but it might be safer for work (and to wear around teenagers!) without it.

The slogan had multiple layers, primary being that an alchemist combines things to try to create something better (attempting to create gold). In this case the outcome was a spork.

I actually saw the other one first and instantly voted for it, and then I saw this one and wondered why the double-entendre had been thrown in. Then I read the comments. As a lady, I don't particularly enjoy wearing double-entendre's across my chest, so I think the sub without the slogan was a really good idea.
