Blogiversary IV: DAY TWO

Posted on Tuesday, April 24th, 2007


Every year I release a new T-shirt to celebrate my blogiversary. First there was the classic Blogography Logo T, then came the Bad Monkey T, and lastly was the infamous Zombies Ate My Brain T (chosen by YOU, my loyal Blogography readers in last year's contest). Well, this year I came up with 32 different design ideas, and couldn't make up my mind which one to print. So I went to dinner with a group of friends, and we managed to narrow it down to a mere 7.

Since everybody did such a great job of picking a design last year, I'm going to put it up for a vote again this year.

And, to make it worth your while, everybody who votes will be getting a coupon for $10 OFF any Artificial Duck Co. Store T-Shirt purchase!

Dave Ten Dollar

That means you can pick up a classic white shirt for just $5 (+ shipping)... or one of the new color shirts for just $7 (+shipping)*. And these ain't no crappy iron-on designs... no way! Each shirt is custom silk-screened on premium quality 100% cotton shirts for the ultimate in comfort and durability!

And, just because I love you, FIVE VOTERS will be put in a drawing to get a shirt ABSOLUTELY FREE... all you pay is the shipping charges!

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

  1. Take a look at each design below and decide which TWO shirts you like best.
  2. Send an email to CONTEST EXPIRED! with your TWO votes... be sure to use a valid email address to send your vote so you can get your coupon!
  3. But HURRY... your vote must be received by Saturday, April 28th at 9:00pm P.S.T. (Seattle time).

And here's this year's choices... you're voting for the TWO designs you like best...

    Holy Crap! (or holy dave?) Those are all awesome. Very, very hard to choose my two faves…

  2. holygirl427 says:

    That entry about brushing your teeth is totally in my top 10 of all time. DAVE FOR POPE!

  3. Neil says:

    The only problem with the toxic yawn shirt is that, unlike the others, it might not be appropriate to wear to church or temple.

  4. ms. sizzle says:

    dave? your awesomeness just multiplies daily.

  5. kapgar says:

    Oh yeah, the toothpaste one would be great on a shirt. Or the Harry Potter one updated with the new cover so I could wear it to the midnight book release in June!

  6. kilax says:

    32?!!! IT was hard enough to pick two from those awesome 7!!!

  7. I dream of curve-hugging Blogography t-shirts in ladies sizes.

  8. Dave2 says:

    And you shall have them!

    I probably won’t be able to afford to stock them regularly, but they absolutely will be available for pre-order, just like the Zombies Ate My Brains shirts were.

  9. ajooja says:

    Woo hoo!!! Can’t wait for the new shirt. My others are getting worn out.

    I’ve always thought the graphic of cartoon Dave and Monkey in the Delorean would make a great shirt, but there are probably too may legal issues.

    The Dave monument would be great too, but there’s probably too much fine print to make it small enough to fit on a shirt.

    I’m rambling. Keep doing what you’re doing and I’ll stop and hit send. 🙂

  10. Mike says:

    Cool designs (as usual). 😉

  11. Hilly says:

    I’m not sure I’d wear the “try evil” one to church either, Neilochka ;).

  12. Avitable says:

    Awesome. No color shirts for us gorillas? So sad.

  13. Dave H says:

    Woo! Last year I gots my Zombies shirt after voting. Now I’m hoping for a Geek or Bad Monkey shirt to supplement it! 🙂

  14. Dave2 says:

    Avitable… We’ll see… I haven’t been able to get the larger size shirts in colors in the past, they just don’t make them. I might be able to find an alternate supplier though when it comes time to print. 🙁

  15. Kyra says:

    Hmmm, I like the try evil (because of the thong, you know,) and bad monkey – being forced to choose and all. However, might I make a suggestion? What about the graphic on the post below with the tattooed knuckles? I think THAT would make a great t-shirt. 🙂

  16. diane says:

    You really are quite a benevolent Supreme Ruler of the Universe, Dave. 🙂

  17. Sayuri says:

    I can’t choose just two!

  18. bogup says:

    Very very nice T-shirt designs! Hard to choose between them, tho BM is a compelling driver.
    Will definitely pre-order two and will wear proudly. Excellantro…

  19. ChillyWilly says:

    6XL shirts? No offense to any of the extra hefty visitors here, but that size is just shy of a twin bed sheet.

    Vote submitted. Can’t get enough of Bad Monkey… smoking or eating.

  20. Avitable says:

    Nah, us fat guys can live with white.

  21. bogup says:

    Just so you know, if Avitable wins the contest and I don’t there will be a big 2X protest.

  22. webmiztris says:

    I might get a 6XL just to use as a bedsheet! 🙂

  23. Laurence says:

    I have no doubt about one design… Now I must choose the second ! It is hard…

    You are a great genius ! 🙂

  24. jodi says:

    Bad Monkey! I desperately want a shirt with a bad monkey on it.

    vote submitted.

  25. suze says:

    yay! the try evil dave is back 🙂 I love a cartoon with fangs…

  26. Troy says:

    6XL??? Holy crap. I could likely live in one of those shirts. 🙂

  27. Andre says:

    …i think the little geeky one would fit great onto a camouflage coloured shirt 😉

  28. Hol says:

    I love your designs! Wish I could pick more…
    So how small does a “small” run? ’cause I’m pretty small. (A 4′ 10″ kind of small.)

  29. RW says:

    Ok I voted. I have now voted for SHIRTS more than I have boted for Presidents in the last 4 years!

  30. RW says:

    “bloted” – descriptive, 1. what you get when you swallow too many votes. 2. One who has engaged in an excess of blote.

    Pick one…

  31. Dave2 says:

    I must not have voted enough, because I’m still hungry and not very bloted at all.

  32. Wait, so I can only pick two that are my favorite? 🙁 Now I’m all sad. How about if I use a different email address? 😛

  33. CiCi says:

    I went back to reread your New Orleans post – love the photos. If you thought the smells were “memorable” then, you’ve gotta come back. There is a new company cleaning the French Quarter, so the old fragrance of stale beer, urine, & other mystery substances is no longer. The streets get washed/rinsed daily and sprayed with fragrance, – lemon, berry, or a mix. it’s most definitely a change.

  34. Kapha says:

    The toothpaste toon still reminds me of Calvin & Hobbes somehow and makes me laugh every single time. 🙂

  35. Laurel says:

    I was just about to ask if I got a sticker proclaiming that “I Voted Today” when I got your confirmation e-mail. I’ve printed and stuck it to my shirt…

  36. Mooselet says:

    I still love my Zombie Ate my Brain t-shirt. And I can only pick 2? This will be difficult…

  37. James says:

    I complained in my vote email about the Try Evil being on black, then scrolled down and read that you’d be happy to print any design on a white shirt.

    Guess that teaches me not to complain..

  38. Dave2 says:

    I show the designs on color shirts, because that’s how they’ll ultimately be inventoried for sale. For pre-orders, you can get your shirt printed on white… or have it printed on ladies shirts… but those are specialty made-to-order prints, and won’t be inventoried.

  39. The Chad says:

    Can I get the Bad Monkey as a giant Fridge magnet?

  40. Michelle says:

    I vote for Bad Monkey and Smoking Monkey. Can I vote for two? Great job as always Dave.

  41. Michelle says:

    Oops, got a little to excited there and missed that we could vote on two.

  42. Dave2 says:

    Yep, you get to vote for two… but you have to send your votes in an email as stated in the rules, because that’s how the gift certificates are generated to be sent out after Blogiversary IV Week! 🙂

  43. Bre says:

    It continues to amaze me how well or-anized (stupid key!) this is! Awesome work, Dave!!

  44. Dave2 says:

    At the very least, you’re guaranteed to win a $10 gift certificate if you vote!


  45. Robin says:

    Awesome designs Dave!

    My fingers are crossed for “a little geeky”—cause that would fit me to a “t”

  46. Very cool. I really like three but I narrowed it to two…

  47. Iron Fist says:

    What I want to know is, can the shirts be ordered with the wearer’s “Dave Number” printed on the shoulders?

  48. Jacki says:

    Ok, now if I use the work and home computer to vote, is that allowed? And how about if I use all the different work computers to vote – is that cheating? Because I really want me a dave for pope t-shirt.

  49. jenny says:

    I still refer back to the toothpaste entry when I am having a bad day.

  50. Foo says:

    Awesome Designs Dave. My first vote is for bad monkey and my second is for little geeky.
