Shilling...

... but not the monetary sort of shilling, which no longer exists anyway (if you don't count Austrian schillings, with a "c," to be accurate). It's the "go-look-at-this-stuff" sort of shill. Just for grins and giggles I went over to despair.com to check out the latest de-motivational posters (one of which headlined my post, below) and found they're doing merchandise now. They've got some pretty funny stuff there.

I'd buy the shirt above if the verbiage was changed from "your blog" to "my blog." Coz it would be entirely (and sadly) true...but funny. I've always been into self-deprecating humor and this would most certainly fit if the change was made.

  1. I think that kind of stuff is funny too.

  2. That shirt is so funny! Maybe you should write to them and ask them to change it. ;)

  3. Glad you agree, Diva. And I think I will drop 'em a line, Ash.

  4. My reaction to such a tee shirt would be "Well if your t-shirt doesn't include the URL, why are you complaining to me about it?"

    That'd be great. "More people looked at this shirt this week than visited exilinportales.blogspot.com". You might start a trend.

    You may or may NOT be surprised to hear people go "Hunh?" (if they say anything at all) when I wear my "I'm blogging this." tee out and about here in P-Ville. (I suspect the latter.) The sad facts are (a) most people have NO clue as to what a blog is and (b) they don't freakin' CARE. And URLs are hard to decipher even among the cognoscenti, so the hoi-polli would still go "Hunh?"

    Anon: THANK YOU! One of those tees will be on its way to me, soon.

Just be polite... that's all I ask.
