Blogiversary III… STYLIN' with DAVE!

Posted on Tuesday, April 18th, 2006

Dave!  SORRY! VOTING IS NOW CLOSED! No new entries are being accepted.  

Every year I release a new T-shirt to celebrate my blogiversary. First there was the classic Blogography Logo T. This sublimely elegant piece of apparel is appropriate for even the most important occasions... from your wedding day to an audience with the Queen. Then came the Bad Monkey T. This cheeky statement of artistic vision is perfect for everything from dining with foreign dignitaries to making out with Paris Hilton. But one thing is for certain... no matter which shirt you choose, you're assured of being the best-dressed person in the room.

And now here we are a year later. So what's next?

I dunno. Why don't YOU tell ME?

This year I've got FOUR new Blogography designs, and it's up to YOU to vote for which one gets printed (close-ups of all four designs are in an extended entry)...

Shirt Vote!

And since you are the one making the hard decisions, you're probably asking yourself "what's in it for me?"

Good question! How about this...

Dave Ten Dollars!

Everybody who sends in a vote will receive a valuable $10 OFF coupon to purchase any reguarly-priced shirt from the Artificial Duck store. That means you can pick up a classic white shirt for just $4.95* (+ shipping)... or the new color shirt for just $6.95* (+shipping). And these ain't no crappy iron-on designs... no way! Each shirt is custom silk-screened on premium quality Hanes Beefy-T's for the ultimate in comfort and durability!

BUT THAT'S NOT ALL! Every voter will ALSO be entered in a drawing with TEN chances to win a FREE* T-shirt of your choice... all you pay is the shipping charges!

  SORRY! VOTING IS NOW CLOSED! No new entries are being accepted.  

It's almost too good to be true! So how do you vote? It's easy!

  1. Take a look at each design by clicking on the "extended entry" link below.
  2. Decide on which shirt you like best.
  3. Send an email to with your vote (write your choice in the subject line).
  4. Sit back and watch democracy in action! The winning design and ten FREE T-SHIRT winners will be announced on Sunday, April 23rd!
  5. But HURRY... your vote must be received by Saturday, April 22nd at 9:00pm P.S.T. (Seattle time).

* Please note that this prize is for sizes S-XL. Larger sizes are available for an extra charge: 2XL is $1.00 extra, 3XL is $2.00 extra. Sizes bigger than 2X are not available in colors, but I'll be happy to print any design on a white shirt: 4XL is $3.00 extra, 5XL is $4.00 extra, 6XL is $5.00 extra.

Alrighty then! Take a look at the choices and get voting (one vote per person please!)...

ZOMBIES ATE MY BRAIN. No need to explain why you're wandering around in a daze, this shirt blames Zombie Dave and Dead Monkey for your lack of mental proficiency on a Monday morning recovery from a wild weekend! Beautifully printed on a spooky denim-colored Beefy-T...

Zombies Ate My Brain

ARTIFICIAL DUCK CO. You asked for it, and here it is... the totally sweet Artificial Duck logo proudly emblazoned on a succulent orange Beefy-T!

Artificial Duck

TRY EVIL. Invite your friends, family, and co-workers to join the dark side and give evil a try! This devious design has been diabolically printed on a wicked black Beefy-T!

Try Evil

COSMIC BANANA. All bow before the Cosmic Banana in its celestial glory! Very soon, every DaveToon ever made (along with other toon-filled surprises) will be archived for easy viewing at you can get a jump start on things with this extraterrestrially blue Beefy-T!

Cosmic Banana

And there you have it! Sure they are all fabulous designs, but only one can win! Email with your vote today, and good luck!

P.S. Feel free to shamelessly influence other readers with your choice in the comments section!

  1. John says:

    there all pretty awesome, but personally i’d go for zombies ate my brain. I WOULD go for try evil, but I dunno, wearing a T-Shirt with a cartoon guy in a thong may be beyond my gayness rating 🙂

  2. adena says:

    B-b-b-ut…..they’re all so GOOD!!!

    How do I choose?

    HOW DO I CHOOSE???!!

  3. Kevin says:

    Zombies Ate My Brain!

    Vote now!

  4. Naomi says:

    Suggestion/request for next year: A davetastic design incorporating ninjas & pirates! ARRRR!

  5. Tink says:

    hmmm…you didnt say how many times we are allowed to vote : P

  6. Dave2 says:

    Okay… I’ve only had the voting open for a half hour and there have already been 38 votes. That’s pretty crazy.

    John: Not a GUY in a thong… a DEMON in a thong! That adds at least 10 points to your “bad-ass” rating!

    Adena: Eenie meenie miny moe?!?

    Kevin: I already voted!

    Naomi: I actually had a pirate shirt, but I ran out of colors to make it look like I wanted. I’ll probably take another crack at it next year.

    Tink: Well, I did say “one vote per person please!” – should I threaten multi-voters with death? I find death to be an excellent motivator! 🙂

  7. Pauly D says:

    Evil evil evil.

  8. Karl says:

    Great designs. Gotta go with the zombies, though. This shirt would just come in so handy. No more explainin’ to do.

  9. Firda says:

    Dude, I’m so glad I won the Lost Blogger contest. I would hate not to win any of these t-shirts. They’re all awesome. Doesn’t matter which design wins. If the Artificial Duck one wasn’t on orange, I would totally vote for it, but since it is and I look weirder than usual in orange, well, we’ll see…

  10. Tink says:

    I’m sorry Dave…i should be beaten with reeds for not reading and retaining the info given….that would motovate me…. : (

  11. Dave2 says:

    Pauly: Funny. I would have never pegged you as the “evil” type – just goes to show that it’s always those quiet writer types who are secretly evil.

    Karl: Yes… imagine you’ve just had a wild weekend of non-stop-partying. You wake up Monday morning and can barely remember how to breathe, let alone speak. So you toss on your “Zombies Ate My Brain” shirt and head off to work… as if by magic, everybody understands the situation perfectly, and knows you are better off left alone. Brilliant! Of course, I’d have to wear one every day in order to explain my mental condition (or lack thereof), but still…

    Firda: I had tries the Artificial Duck logo on blue, but I wanted a nifty bright color for summer, so I stuck it on orange to match the duck’s bill and feet. I suppose if the design wins, I could always print it on a different color just for you!

    Tink: No need for that! It is perfectly understandable that the excitement of getting to vote for such totally awesome T-shirts would tend to scramble your memory a bit! Heck, I got so excited that I forgot to put on pants this morning! Yes everybody, I’M BLOGGING WITHOUT PANTS! Woooo!

  12. Chase says:

    Zombie Dave is hot with the dead glow around him. Grrrar, baby.

  13. Chaz says:

    Okay, so I like them all, but I think I’m going to vote in the following order.

    1. Zombie Dave
    2. Artificial Duck
    3. Evil
    4. Cosmic Banana

    Though, it’s really hard to vote since they’re all pretty cool!

  14. Juli says:

    Who can refuse a duck with a key in its keister??

  15. ms. sizzle says:

    they are all so good. but i think i know which one gets my vote.

    🙂 sizz

  16. Bre says:

    While the duck is absolutely tempting, “Try Evil” speaks to me on a totally different level!

  17. kilax says:

    Vote zoombies! If you don’t they will eat your brain!

  18. Tink says:

    oh my! blogging without pants! tell me does that help with writers block?….and yes it really was my excitement of voting that made me forget everything else. (sigh…. i wish i was kidding)

  19. Nicola says:

    Cos I’m quackers (!) it has to be the duck.

  20. Nicole says:

    Zombies Ate My Brain! Its classic. Plus I love blue t-shirts.

  21. delmer says:

    It’s got to be Zombies.

    Not for me … for the children. (Well, my children anyway — so, I guess it is sort of for me.)

  22. jenny says:

    Dave blogging without pants…
    Like that visual… ewww, not in a thong!

  23. Eve says:

    I already emailed my vote like a good girl :::adjusts halo::: but can you guess which shirt I picked?

    EVIL BABY!!!!!

    A very timely choice, considering Kevin’s entry today regarding evil names (to which Pauly D was so nice to point out that Kevin and I both possess).

    And on that note, allow me to quote the immortal words of Slayer:

    Evil, My words defy
    Evil, Has no disguise
    Evil, Will take your soul
    Evil, My wrath unfolds

    — From “Evil Has No Boundaries” my theme song

  24. Bitter Bitch says:

    aaaeeeee!!! I want them alll!

    If you’re going to be a pill and just release one, then I chose the zombie one.

  25. Brandon says:

    I am so happy to hear that you are blogging without pants. I think we all need to stand up, drop trow and scream at the person sitting in the next office and to the world in general, DOWN WITH PANTS!!! The world would be a much better place, and you would have more free time what with being fired and all.

    But I digress, I just sent you an email with my vote for Zombies Ate My Brain. Did you mean that you can’t get color t-shirts in anything bigger than a 3XL? I’m hoping, because I am a big dude who loves a little color.

  26. Chanakin says:

    George Carlin: “Where the f*uck are all the zombies??!!”

    Gotta go with zombies.

  27. 6ft5 says:

    I will definately NEED zombies ate my brain and try evil.

    they are da bomb! 🙂

  28. suze says:

    oh, i’m so torn! zombies – perfect for explaining many a situtation. but little evil vampy cartoony dave, so cute…

    and everyone has to try evil sometime…

  29. Robin says:

    Zombies win it for me every time!

  30. Wejn says:

    I’m all for Duck!

    Oh yeah, I love ducks, duck typing, etc.

  31. ChillyWilly says:

    I’m with Nicole… Zombies… and blue shirts, too

    Reminds me of that Simpsons’s Halloween special where Bart and Homer were killing the zombies.

  32. Mooselet says:

    Oh geez, how can I choose… zombies are cool, but I’d love to try evil. Everyone loves a duck, even if orange makes me look jaundiced… and bananas are just funny. Evil Dave looks kinda hot, but Zombie Dave has Bad Monkey…

    I think my head is going to explode!

    Ok, it’s gonna be Evil Dave. Black is slimming, after all.

  33. Dave H says:

    “Zombies” for the win! :o)

  34. James D. says:

    I voted for the cosmic banana…but I from what I’ve read it sounds like its in last place. Oh well. Banana all the way!

  35. jenny says:

    Oh, man! I’m so completely torn between ducks and zombies! They’re both so perfect – can I really only choose one? Rules, rules, rules!

    It’s gonna have to be a game-time decision for me. I need to retire to my study to think.

  36. SJ says:


    Especially accompanied by Zombie Bad Monkey!

  37. apryl says:

    who can resist the duck?

  38. Cougfan says:

    Choosing between the bannana and the zombies was hard, because blue is the best, but I chose zombies because who can resist the undead? Anyone? Thats what I thought.

  39. Dave2 says:

    Okay then… the day is only half-over on the first day of voting and I have already received 162 votes.

    My lurkers are delurking! My lurkers are delurking!

    Oddly enough, the voting is not as one-sided as it appears here… though people leaving comments seem to prefer the “Zombies Ate My Brain” shirt, the others definitely have fans in off-comment voting. Hmmmm…

  40. Epona says:

    I’m totally going for the Zombies. But the duck is cool too.

  41. Troy says:

    Zombies! Zombies! Zombies!

    It would go well with my Blogiversary II winning T-Shirt.


    (P.S. This is a double post – I posted it on the previous entry – I’m a dumb ass)

  42. Sayuri says:

    Evil! Evil! Evil!!

    But the zombie is cool too!

  43. Michele says:

    Zombie all the way baby! A zombie bad monkey..You can’t get better than that.

  44. sandra says:

    1. Zombies
    2. Banana (I like to think I’m at the head of the pack)
    3. Evil
    4. Duck

  45. Neil says:

    Goose, goose, DUCK!

  46. Bec says:

    Evil… I think we should get behind evil and really promote it! But, ooo, then Zombies are evil… erm… no evil…!

  47. Mocha says:

    I’m not buying it. I don’t think anything other than the Zombie shirt is winning.

    But when I get my ten buck coupon, I’m buying it.

    Was that a contradiction?

  48. JoeBruin88 says:

    Did all these people “voting” in your comments have their votes count? Maybe you should have closed comments on this particular entry so you can properly collect the votes by email as you wanted. 🙂

  49. Dave2 says:

    None of the comments count as votes… you MUST send an email, as explained above, with your vote given there (I’ve written software to tabulate the results for me).

    I think everybody here has voted by email, and is just airing their choices in public. 🙂

  50. *cotton says:


    evil is nice too. can we have an evil zombie?

  51. Adam says:

    The duck is cute but I think the one that will get the maximum attention is the cosmic banana (My choice).

  52. Cat says:

    I definitely like the zombies and it seems many others do too. Yay for zombies! I’d wear THAT one to the coffee shop…I would.

  53. Belinda says:

    I’m totally in with Kevin and Chase on the zombies. But I would also absolutely buy every one of them. Because I AM that proverbial fool who is soon parted from her money.

  54. Belinda says:

    Actually, amend that–I wouldn’t wear the evil thong-guy. Even I have my limits.

  55. Mia says:

    AHHHH! The Pressure!

    Try Evil needs to win…cuzzzz I want one.

  56. filimus sans says:

    i agree with belinda and whoever else said it, i’d buy them all.
    so make them all! then you’ll make everyone happy!
    i like the duck, too, but orange makes me look like a pumpkin…

  57. ©madbull says:

    Try evil. (And don’t bother with a discount code or something, just ‘Try evil’)

  58. Harold says:

    All 4 T-Shirt choices were great, but I was alittle disappointed not one with an “IRISH” theme, although, Blogging with no pants on, comes close!

  59. Nicola says:

    I know I’m new to this, but is there any particular reason why there should be an Irish Theme? Dave’s American? You could have done a Scottish Theme, put the duck in a kilt!

  60. Anthony says:

    Vote for Zombie At My Brain.

    Do it, do it.

  61. lizriz says:

    Yeah, where is the love for the Cosmic Banana???

    *I* love the Cosmic Banana!

    What does this say about me…

  62. Carl says:

    Somehow, some way, I relate to the Cosmic Banana. Yes, I can see me in a Cosmic Banana T shirt at work. It deepens my “cool-or-perv?” mystique. CB gets my vote.

  63. Alexis says:

    Ohmigod, I am so in love with that Cosmic Banana shirt! I must have a Cosmic Banana shirt! Vote for Cosmic Banana!!

  64. mikey says:

    I like the Evil(kevin), but being Gay I choose….?
