Dave!Chicks dig my monkey.

And before you get the idea that I am speaking metaphorically here, and think that I'm attaching bizarre "pet names" to various parts of my anatomy, I am speaking of my "Bad Monkey" T-shirt. Today I decided to "test drive" a shirt to see how I like wearing it, only to find that it gets big attention from just about everybody. The chicks really dig it. "Cool shirt!" they say. "Where did you get that?" they ask. "Please make mad, passionate monkey-love to me right now!" they beg (or so I wish... particularly to the hot, hot, brutally hot babe filling up her car at the mini-mart, who I very nearly gave the shirt off my back).

For the past couple of days I've been washing and re-washing a few of my shirts to see how they hold up (answer: very well) and how long it takes before they start getting that "oh so soft" lived-in feel (answer: four washings). But today was the first time I actually wore one in public, and the response is pretty sweet. To everybody who ordered a shirt... your photos and testimonials are welcome! I need to work up a gallery or something.

Now the bad news. I am losing major bank on these things, because the costs just keep piling up (even once the shirt has been paid for). I had expected to lose a little bit for each logo shirt, thinking it would be a small price to pay for cheap advertising. Problem is, I figure that I am now losing $1.60 per shirt. When you multiply that by 100 shirts... well, it's no longer a small price is it? So, starting today, the "sale price" has been bumped up to $8.95 (still saving you $6) which will remain until the next round of designs are added. Sorry about that.

The next step is to come up with individual foreign order pages so that I can guarantee that anybody outside the USA won't have to over-pay for shipping charges. Hopefully I'll get that finished up in the next day or two.

For everybody who has won or ordered a shirt, you have the rain to thank for me finishing packaging everything up today. All current orders will ship Monday morning (whoooooo!).

    Woohoo! I’ll let you know of my love life improves as a result of wearing my Bad Monkey t-shirt when it arrives.

  2. Patrick says:

    Sweeet! I guess the beatiful, tall and blonde Swedish women will cling to me like glue… 🙂

  3. Dave2 says:

    Yes, yes… the women will be all over you. They just won’t be able to help themselves.

    Hey. Wait a second. That’s ME on those shirts. ME!! I should be the one getting all the tall, blonde Swedish women!! Something is very wrong here. Very, very wrong…

  4. Ben says:

    Haha. Some of us don’t need t-shirts!

    *smallvoice* I on the otherhand will take 4500 tshirts.

  5. Sayuri says:

    So it’s all very well for you guys wearing shirts, but what about us CHICKS wearing shirts. Am I gonna get some monkey lovin?? (erghh)

  6. Sayuri says:

    oooh, Clueless is the quote. Yay!!!

  7. TheMike says:

    Cool, looks like I picked the right shirt, althought theWife might not like all the attention I get too much.

  8. Andy says:

    Seeing as though a lot of blokes like the shirts, i’m guessing that the chicks will also do all right in the adoration department.

  9. Dave2 says:

    Ben, I take Visa and MasterCard. We can set that up for you no problem!

    Ah, but you have no worries theMike… your wife will be so infatuated herself with long, lingering looks at your fantastic shirt, that she won’t even notice that other women are captivated as well! It’s a win-win situation!

    And I think Andy is correct. Whilst wearing my shirts, I often find myself staring at me in the mirror! Blokes must love them as well then.
