Re: Greedy Chipmunk!



Initially, I didn't have any good ideas for this theme but as usual my wife came to the rescue! She suggested doing a shirt of a chipmunk who had stuffed its face with acorns...

I liked this idea and took it a step further with the chubby chipmunk being lord of a mountain of nuts...

Enjoy!

Re: All about the Benjamins



When I think of greed, I always think of good ol’ Ben Franklin... not just because his face is on the hundred-dollar bill, but because he was always talking about money... saving, spending, investing... the man took a the vice of hoarding money and made it seem like the virtue of a level-headed spendthrift. Here’s to the man who made greed appear to be a traditional American value... save all your pennies and maybe you too will have your face printed on the cash.

The man had a lot to say about money, and he flew a mean kite to boot. Here are some of my favorite Franklin quotes:

“Wealth is not his that has it, but his that enjoys it.”

“If you know how to spend less than you get, you have the philosopher's stone.”

“If you would know the value of money, go and try to borrow some.”

“A penny saved is a penny earned.”

“If a man empties his purse into his head, no man can take it away from him. An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest.”

“He that displays too often his wife and his wallet is in danger of having both of them borrowed.”

“He that is of the opinion money will do everything may well be suspected of doing everything for money.”


Vote for Benjamin Franklin... the man on the $100 bill!

'Twas the greed that killed it.

Don't eat gems the size of your head. They're hard to digest.

Even robot squirrels gather nuts, but this guy is going way beyond necessity. It's not even robot Autumn yet.

Re: The Greedy Flower



We've all been that sad flower and have had that perfect girl or perfect guy stolen from us. Wasn't that a sad sad day? How are we ever going to be polinated? What a greedy flower! Commemorate that experience with this perfect design featured on a sexy lemon shirt (complete with simulated motion and shadows... kind of...)!

Please feel free to comment on anything. I am anxious to here what everyone thinks. Thank you for looking!

Re: Rigged



I'm not sure that I am seeing this right. What is this supposed to be? How does it fit with the theme? The first thing that came to my mind is a coconut bra.......

Re: Greedy Squirrel



Despite the huge cache of nuts he's accumulated, this little squirrel can't take his eyes off the larger nut in front of him.

This jellyfish is a greedy jerk taking more than he needs. But he feels bad about it. So I guess it’s ok?

Re: Penny Pincher



Is "penny pinching" actually greed?

I'd say it's frugal, or "cheap", but I wouldn't consider people who are "penny pinchers" greedy.

Re: Greedy Conquistador



Shame it couldn't have been the pirate. Seriously, memes or no, that really would've worked. Still makes sense though, and still awesome, so GMV.

Re: Greedy Conquistador


He's wearing conquistador's armor, and there is the middle of the aztec calendar on the chest, implying where the ship got its wealth before this disgruntled employee tried to run off with it.

Re: Share?



Little forest thing finds a little forest fruit that could feed all the other little forest things. . . but do they share? NOOOOO. Someday, a bigger forest thing will come by and see the greedy little forest things and munch them up.

Seems to me, greed keeps people from letting go of their stuff, as much as their desire for more stuff.

Sell your kidney!

With kidneys on a high failure rate, it isnt obvious that people will begin illegally selling theirs for quick cash, instead of properly donating them.

Show your greedy selves off to the world!

Re: So Hungry/Greedy He Could Eat A Horse?



I just don't see greed here. The saying is expressing hunger, not greed. There's a difference between gluttony as seen in The Meaning of Life and hunger as in "I was so hungry I could eat a horse." I just think this design is an attempt to wedge a cool idea that doesn't quite fit the topic into the topic.

Oh, and anacondas (or is it boas?) often will eat deer, as I understand it, in their native habitat, so a horse isn't really out of the question.

It's the old classic con "shell game". It seemed to me that all the squirrels and gas pumps and money grubbers were already being done, So I thought I'd take a more subtle approach. Too subtle. I guess.

I checked with the derby runner through email and he said it was ok.
