: ‘Vote Dave’ tshirt please!
: shaolin_monkey 31 August, 2019, 03:01:19 PM
As per the mention in the Trump/Cal thread:

 Is there any chance of a ‘Vote Dave’ mock-up political poster on a 2000AD tee please?


...  anyway, Dave was the second best Mayor MC1 ever had!

Not to  mention criminally neglected in the recent slew of election themed t-shirts put out by Rebellion.

Consider this the start of a petition: we demand a "Vote Dave" t-shirt!

I’m with you Comrade Tjm86! ✊

Definitely! That’s a pretty good hit rate so far - four forum members already interested!

Now Cameron's gone you can wear it with pride!

There is only one thing that has got me wondering about the sensibility of my original suggestion though:  Dave was killed by muggers (admittedly for a shoddy insurance payout but still, Jo Cox and all that ...)

You know what, I thought something similar when I bought the T-shirt ‘Democracy Isn’t Working’, which depicts that great cover by John Higgins and essentially has you looking down the barrel of a gun.  It made me think of the tensions between left and right, and the accusations of violence being slung too and fro.

But you can overthink these things sometimes. And it’s a matter of judgement. I wore it to a party the other day where most of my friends were geeks like me, and who got it, but I doubt I’d wear it to an Extinction Rebellion event, know what I mean?

At any rate, I would suggest a T-shirt depicting one of my favourite orangutans running for Mayor could only be seen as amusing, fun, and positive by casual observers. It is only us 2000AD fans who know his fate, and might make the link between Dave and Jo Coz - and even then it would be tenuous I think.



TL:DR?

Don’t overthink it - let’s get a T-shirt celebrating our second favourite mayor of MC1!

Aye, admirable sensitivity, but an orangutan being killed by his owner as an insurance scam, however bleak, is a long way from the hate-fueled assassination of an MP.

Sign me up for a t-shirt too.

I hate to quibble, but wasn't the assassination organised by Mo, their friendly neighbourhood barman?


Anyway, Dave tee pretty please!!!

: TordelBack 03 September, 2019, 04:11:39 PM
You are absolutely correct - it was Billy who had the life insurance, made out to Mo. I had it all mixed up, I'm no smart ape like Dave.

Not if you actually go back and read some of his comments. (I recently reread the entire Lat Movie Watched thread and he needs help and medicatipn tbat I don't think we can provide)e.

Any idea when these are being posted?

Has anyone had theirs yet?
: Re: ‘Vote Dave’ tshirt please!
: The Enigmatic Dr X 23 September, 2019, 10:01:07 PM
Nope, I was worried someone had theirs first.

Love the idea that in some print shop, there's a bemused guy doing a run of Dave t-shirts.

Not yet, but every day I hope...

I ordered a t-shirt (with lady bumps) and it took a couple of weeks to arrive, i did ask the nice person in the shop (Caty?) and they said they are printed to order, so patience children!
: Re: ‘Vote Dave’ tshirt please!
: Dandontdare 25 September, 2019, 07:11:49 PM
Do the lady bumps get shipped separately?
: Re: ‘Vote Dave’ tshirt please!
: Tjm86 26 September, 2019, 07:57:05 PM
Aye, my Apathy Party shirt took a good couple of weeks to arrive.  Mind you, that could have been because they couldn't be bothered to post it.
: Re: ‘Vote Dave’ tshirt please!
: TordelBack 26 September, 2019, 09:16:57 PM

Yes, but I've found them alarmingly easy to grow myself.

....and arrived!  Perfect fit for my orangutang-like body. 

Daughter took one look at it and simply nodded in satisfaction with a thumbs up.

So now a choice of two perfect tops for the forthcoming GE!

Tharg hates me.

I give him my money.

He sends everyone else their stuff before me. Progs, Ts, whatever.
: Re: ‘Vote Dave’ tshirt please!
: shaolin_monkey 28 September, 2019, 11:43:55 AM
Hurrah! Both of mine arrived okay too!

Wish I'd bought a "Because I hate you" T now, so I couldn't wear it at you all.
