  • Short for "merchandise." At most rock shows bands set up "merch tables" to sell tshirts, singles, etc.

    Pretty soon Wordie merch will be available at the Wordie Cafe Press Store. It's empty so far, but planned items include "crappucino" mugs and "sesquipedalian" onesies. Please nominate other pieces of crap we can sell.

  • Oh my gosh! Crappucino mugs?! How awesome! I'll definitely come up with some ideas. *thinks hard*

    October 16, 2007

  • There are some lists around here that would make excellent mugs.

    October 16, 2007

  • Yes, and some Conversations of Legend that could work out purty nice. (The short ones.)

    October 16, 2007

  • Does anyone have a Conversations of Legend list? Would love to see that.

    Crappuccino mugs now available. Boy is my family going to be confused and disappointed when they all get these for xmas :-)

    I'll keep playing with the crap on cafe press. Any design/word/list suggestions?

  • Chained_Bear has an excellent list called Conversations for the Ages.

    October 16, 2007

  • Oh, no, the crappuccino mugs are just TOO good! I think I actually must buy some.

    How cool would it be to put whole lists in cloud form on merch? Oh, dear. I'm in trouble. I can see I'm going to spend money that I oughtn't.

  • Crappuccino mugs??? WOW! *runs off to buy a dozen* What a fantastic idea! T-shirts! Calendars! Onesies! Oh, the possibilities! This is bad...this is very, very bad. :-D

    Geez, I sleep for a few hours and suddenly Wordie is merchandising! Ah, the glories of the Interwebs.

    October 16, 2007

  • Oh, and Jennarenn has a few excellent Conversations of Legend-type lists--in fact, I think she may have launched the whole idea. :-)

    October 16, 2007

  • That's teh Interwebs, reesetee. We're on WORDIE, for god's sake.

    John, I respectfully defer to jennarenn's suggestions for conversations--her Conversations list is probably more complete than mine, and certainly was listed first.

    I'm partial to sausage fest though--partly because it still makes me giggle to see that phrase, and partly because all the comments are short enough that they might actually fit on the back of a shirt. (Do you think we could get permission to use the "hilarious misunderstanding" comic too?)

    Actually, hilarious misunderstanding has even shorter comments, and is even more apparently obtuse. Maybe that one's better. Hmm...
