Well, considering that no 4-engine planes crashed that day...

i don't get it... is there a reason those particular numbers are that shape? (besides no. 2)

Frankly I was just curious, not offended. But whatever.

I'd love to have a #10 myself.

Number One is a plane too. Any theories about January 11th, or can I take off my tinfoil chapeau now?

Each of these items' number is based off how many members of the wu-tang clan own one of the aforementioned items.

ODB's many name changes account for the extra numbers. Ironically he was the only member to own a claw-grabby thing.

Either this shirt isn't actually referring to anything, or I'm completely missing something. Can't say I haven't not understood a shirt in this long.

Oh, and I guess #4 would be otterific for drawing circles.

All standardized tests should require the use of the #12 pencil, imo.

You are just getting paranoid now. If it was 7 would it be a Pearl Harbor reference? I hope you really don't think that's on purpose.

It is un/fortunately (depending on how you like your humour). You will notice that it's the eleventh one when counting horizontally and ninth when counting vertically.


Whatever the viewer thinks, it is terribly clever…

I certainly hope number 11 is not intended to represent American Airlines flight 11.

These are clearly not in order of awesomeness. Except #2 and #12... those are pretty well placed.

Someone else has been quoted on this before and certainly worthy of bringing up today:
"If the #2 pencil is so popular, why is it still #2?"

Not sure how it would be done, but I would have loved for #6 to be "No. 6" from BSG.

Someone needs to educate the artist on the meaning of pencil hardness, and that the Conté system tops out at 4.

Hi!
Thanks so much for the comments and kind words.

I certainly can squash any theories about my intentions of disrespecting/implying anything wrongful, dirty or otherwise offensive. Just a silly joke about #2 pencils!

Thanks!

Good work on this design man!

I love/hate that the majority of responses are either "IDGI" or channeling Genn Beck.

I almost bought one for my younger brother and was going to use my $5 coupon Woot! emailed me the other day but my wallet is on the other side of the house and now I'm worried about if other people are going to think of the 9/11 thing

I'd not lose sleep over it. The design has been passed around the internet thousands of times for the past 8 months and not once has that hesitation come up until today.

Ah yeah. I saw on Nathan's site this a while ago on white, much better on a darker color. Pop!

Unfortunately in England our pencils are all B's and H's, not numbers, so I'd get funny looks wearing this.

This.

I think it's both baffling and hilarious people are making this assumption. Stop being so over-sensitive.

#9 and #12 = Classy.

You see, my goal here, is simply a t-shirt collection to rival that of Dr. Sheldon Cooper.

Don't know who that is? You should be ashamed of yourselves.

I'm partial to a mechanical pencil with .7mm lead myself, but #9 looks pretty cool.
