Special thanks to my photographer and assistant, Simon.
|He's in there somewhere, I think.|
I got this shirt at Cafe Press shortly after finishing The Deathly Hallows. The tricky part was trying to find one that didn’t have “Harry Potter” or “Deathly Hallows” emblazoned across it. I was going for subtle because, you know me, I’m all about subtlety.
Almost nobody recognizes it, though. I only got one compliment, and that was some poor shlub who worked at Whole Foods, cleaning out the smug delusion filters.
This one I found at the same place as my intelligent design shirt (see below). It’s a cool site; it lets you adjust the design yourself. I added the tagline because I thought the concept was too subtle.
|That's Death's finger coming at me from the left.|
I got this one at the Iovation booth at the Game Developer’s Conference. I’m not sure why, but people really like it.
|Can you see what I've got in my right hand? Can you? SUBTLE HUMOR.|
This one came from Rooster Teeth’s machinma series: Red vs.Blue. In one episode, a character named Donut was rewarded with a custom-colored suit of space armor. “They have a word for lightish-red,” his companions say. “It’s called ‘pink.’”
|"Why would they give me pink armor?" "Hey, don't ask, don't tell."|
Got this one at an army navy store. It was on a mannequin hanging off of the ceiling. When I asked if he could get it down for me he said with a sigh: “You promise you’ll buy it?
|I really hope that isn't a rectal thermometer.|
Teach the Controversy is a site that promotes the teaching of Intelligent Design in schools. The site I got this shirt from ridicules the idea by suggesting we teach other, equally scientific counter-ideas: that the pyramids were built by aliens, or that fossils were buried by Satan.
|It says "Teach the Controversy."|
This shirt was a gift. I think it came from Think Geek. It got me a standing ovation at an IGDA meeting, once.
|More subt- Ah, no, not even close to subtle.|
The last joke comes from my photographer/assistant who insisted I put in a picture of him as “Pretzel Man.”
|Chip off the subtle block.|
