I hope this shirt prints. if for no other reason than the writeup.

What this shirt tells the world: I don't take fertilizer from no one! Who's next!?!

Not to sound hipster-ish, but people didn't know about this until just now? It's nice to see that the grossness of the food industry is finally getting some real publicity. I thought people just didn't care that they were eating liquified cow scraps and ammonium. I guess its really just the ammonium that I think is really gross. Okay, I'm off my off-topic soap box now.*

Oh btw, it's been just about a year since I started posting here. Thanks everyone for being so awesome and helpful to me this whole time



You are right of course. In the old days, we called it offal and from time to time some company or other was called out for using it in 100% beef or pork or whatever and then they would argue that variety meats were more nutritious, bla, bla, bla. Calling it Pink Slime has just sexed it up for our jaded public, made us take notice.

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim
Because it was grassy and wanted wear,
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I marked the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

It's nice to know I'm not the only one that had that passing thought...

There is something odd about fog not being in the fog.

Love the imagery.

Re: How Doth The Little Crocodile v. 2



I think would be a lot better without fish or if they would be more subtle color. The crocodile is fantastic.

Re: The Tyger



I love, love, love this design. My only concern - will part of the tyger be hidden when I tuck it in? (I'm too small to wear shirts untucked).I hope they keep this in mind when printing because ♥ I MUST HAVE THIS ♥

Well done on creating a design that is not a direct literal illustration of a poem. +1

Thanks for all the kind words! I'm glad you all like it.
I was hesitant to do this design, and in fact worked on my other entry instead, but I thought I'd give it a go.

That being said, further research shows a bunch of folks disputing it, despite it appearing on multiple sites.....

"Narcissus, in his immobility,
absorbed by his reflection
with the digestive slowness of carnivorous plants,
becomes invisible.

There remains of him only
the hallucinatingly white oval of his head,
his head again more tender,
his head, chrysalis of hidden biological designs,
his head held up by the tips of the water's fingers,
at the tips of the fingers
of the insensate hand,
of the terrible hand,
of the mortal hand
of his own reflection.

When that head slits
when that head splits
when that head bursts,
it will be the flower,
the new Narcissus,
Gala - my narcissus"

Salvador Dali

I agree that a song can be poetic, and a poem can by lyrical, but it doesn't change the fact that this was written as a song. "Pure Imagination" is from the original movie "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory". The words and music are credited to Leslie Bricusse and Anthony Newley.

If that's even the work this design is based upon. A question that hasn't been answered.

Re: Siren Song by Elizabeth Atwood



Siren Song by Margaret Atwood

This is the one song everyone
would like to learn: the song
that is irresistible:

the song that forces men
to leap overboard in squadrons
even though they see beached skulls

the song nobody knows
because anyone who had heard it
is dead, and the others can’t remember.
Shall I tell you the secret
and if I do, will you get me
out of this bird suit?
I don’t enjoy it here
squatting on this island
looking picturesque and mythical
with these two feathery maniacs,
I don’t enjoy singing
this trio, fatal and valuable.

I will tell the secret to you,
to you, only to you.
Come closer. This song

is a cry for help: Help me!
Only you, only you can,
you are unique

at last. Alas
it is a boring song
but it works every time.
