Dave!Well this is fun.

What was supposed to be such an easy task has turned into a complete nightmare. Despite having all my products chosen and graphics made, getting merchandise processed at the Artificial Duck Store has been far from easy. I've re-keyed all 136 items FOUR TIMES in an attempt to get everything working. The good news is that I've finally figured out what was going wrong, and know how to fix it. The bad news is that I have to re-enter everything a FIFTH time.

Oh well, the shirts and DuckyButtons are up and running now, and I'll get to the prints and photos in the morning.

For all of you who voted for shirts, I'll be sending out your coupons (with a nice bonus for making you wait!) later this evening. If you've already placed an order DON'T PANIC! Just let me know and I'll adjust the amount before you're charged.

And oh yeah... we have four T-shirt winners this year!

Shirt Winners!

As far as votes go, "A Little Geeky" was far and away the winner. "Try Evil" was a firm second place. "Blogography" was ahead of "Try Evil" for a while, and then tied within 2 votes with "Bad Monkey." It was all very close, so I just decided to print them all. Mostly because I want to own all of them myself!

A pity the stuff won't be arriving until early June, but I think it's all worth the wait!

Anyway, thanks so much to everybody who helped me to celebrate Blogiversary IV this year... you are much appreciated! Here's looking forward to another year.

    Dave, no need to worry. You’ve done so much already. June will be here before you know it and you’ll have a whole new set of headaches.

    Thanks again for being so awesome!

  2. Laurel says:

    Nobody does it better. You rock.

    The stuff looks great! I think everyone in the world should own a Penis Salad button.

  6. Avitable says:

    Those are awesome. You are awesome. It’s awesome!

  7. Chaz says:

    Dave, you truly rock! Four totally new and awesome t-shirt designs! Honestly, who else but you gives away stuff on his/her blogiversary? Shouldn’t it be the other way around?

  8. Bre says:

    Hilly is right… thank you!!

  9. SJ says:

    Oh my god, what an AWESOME bonus, Dave2!!! (Just opened my email). Very generous of you.

    At this rate you’ll take over the world in no time!

  10. ChillyWilly says:

    YEAH!!! Bad Monkey… Bad Monkey… Oh Yeah!!

    And a little geek, too.

    R.I.P. smoking monkeys *sniff*

  11. diane says:

    Yeah…what Hilly and Bre said. 🙂

  12. Jacki says:

    This means that everybody wins – we all get our choice for t-shirt! Only you Dave could be so diplomatic..
    Thanks so much for the effort you have put in. We love you for it.

    Hey Dave! Guess what, your blog is becoming more addictive for me than diet solo, and that’s quite a void to fill believe me. Not only have you made procrastinating just that little bit more interesting, but you’ve also solved my good music drought with your praise of a-ha! Truly an achievement. Thanks for the toons, and the laughs.

  14. carlos m. hernandez says:

    Thanks for creating such an amazing blog. The new T-Shirt designs are sweet!

  15. RW says:

    It’s been so long… what is the Artificial Duck Store again?

  16. I wonder what would happen if I showed up at work wearing the “Lil Dave Bondage button.” *evil laugh*

    Yeeeeeeeah, considering that I was told I was “going to Hell” for putting up my Harry Potter poster…maybe I should pick the “Try Evil” t-shirt instead.

    What? Bad idea?

  17. holygirl427 says:

    Aww Dave, you are so awesome I want to hang you on my wall like fine art.

  18. What, no Dave for Pope?! Oh well, it would have been fun to offend so many… Perhaps I can find other ways.

  19. jenny says:

    OMG – every one of these designs is just brilliant! I can’t wait to place my order! 🙂

  20. Jill says:

    I am feeling a myriad of emotions…

    – I am sooooo happy that the store is up and running…

    – I feel bad that it caused you such problems…

    – I feel elated that I’m going to own at least a couple Official-Honest-To-Goodness Blogography shirts…

    – I feel sad that I can’t buy one of everything…

    – I feel lucky that you put out this blog that I can enjoy all year long…


    Thanks Dave 😀

  21. lizriz says:

    Dude, seriously. No one ever votes for my favorite. What does this say about me?

    I voted for A Little Geeky, but DAMN did I want that shirt with the little smoking monkeys.

  22. Thanks for a fun week! 🙂

  23. bogup says:

    Nice quadrant of t-shirt squares!
    I just put it on my background/desktop. Thnx Dave!

    *picturing myself downtown Ottawa with “Try Evil” or “Bad Monkey”….*

    ohhh yeahhhhhhh…
