The Theme Contest

Calling all readers: now is your chance to be the center of attention (for about five seconds.) Here’s why…

I was getting dressed this morning and pulled out a t-shirt I really liked. It fits well and is a good color for me. I thought about how cool it would be if it was some sort of shirt. I even started to design a shirt at, but only got as far as “”, followed by typing and deleting stupid subthemes like “start clicking” and “like it or not” and “web of intrigue.” The last one, I admit, has potential.

So, readers, please comment with your suggestions about what might look good on a shirt. If I use your idea, when I get the shirts made, I’ll send you one. Win-win!
