In Which I Make An Offer

Earlier this week, I was talking with Aunt Becky via IM about inappropriate nicknames for the up-coming BlogHer conference.
Me: you that you can use the term "Vagina Camp" at BlogHer without having to pay royalties to me
Aunt Becky: hahahaaha
AB: vagina stock?
Me: Cooter Camp
AB: hahahaha
AB: beaver fest is my fav
Me: it is quite a good name
AB: i should make a shirt
And with that, an idea was born.

It is with great pride that I introduce to you the official Beaver Fest 2009 commemorative t-shirt design:

With the conference coming up in the next week, there wasn't enough time to get actual t-shirts made up with this design. However, if you'd like to be one of the few cool cats at BlogHer with a special satirical t-shirt that pokes fun at a common nickname for female genitalia, you are welcome to download the image you'd need to make yourself a shirt by clicking here.

You will, of course, need to have a good working printer, printable iron-on transfer sheets, an iron, and a light-colored t-shirt. I trust that you'd be able to figure it out from there. (Note: You'll notice that the image you've downloaded is mirror-imaged, and it's supposed to be. Trust me, when you print it up on the transfer paper, it will make sense.)

This doesn't apply only to those going to BlogHer. Even if you're not going, feel free to make one up. I only ask that if you do make yourself a shirt, whether you're going to BlogHer or not, snap a quick picture and send it to me. Candid shots from BlogHer would be great, too!

Man, now I'm really sad I'm not going.
I guess I'll have to make due with a t-shirt. :)

Just so long as everyone practices rigorous hygiene and no one shoots an eye out. ~Mary

I first thought I was looking at something city sanctioned when I saw the shirt logo. A couple hours north of Chicago, our school team here is--I shit you not--the Golden Beavers. I do believe we've had a Beaver Fest at some point in the past. Never as cool as BlogHer though. Have fun!

JennyMac said...

HAHAHA. That is too funny! Beaver Fest = first class. Still laughing.

mysterg said...

Nice Beaver!

mrssoup said...

That is hilarious! Makes me want to go just to wear a cool t-shirt!

And count me so jealous that you two IM together!

Mad Woman said...

Well I'm not going but now I totally want a t shirt!

Lola said...

I still prefer to call it Pussypalooza, but Beverfest is my second pick. Do me a favor and make me a Pussypalooza shirt with a couple cute kitties on it. Thanks, man!

Laura said...

I love the shirt design... fabulous!

Aunt Becky said...

Bwhahahahaha! Taco...something. There's a joke there somewhere.

Nej said...

Love the design! What a hoot!

The Peach Tart said...

I'm not going unfortunately but I might have to make me one of these fancy t-shirts

Aunt Juicebox said...

I would seriously make the pussypalooza one. Even though I'm not going to the pussypalooza.
Also, I think you're just jealous that you don't have a beaver. So nyah.

MIT Mommy said...

I'm not going either. I am going to a Pig Roast - which, really, is a lot better, no? Certainly shows what kind of class I have, (or something).

I was looking forward to actually going at one point, because I would like to meet a few people there, but I couldn't give up the roast. I heard, though, that the speakers read posts that were hand picked by the folks at Blogher. I'm not sure if it is totally true, but it was a little disappointing. For that kind of green, I would have expected original content. It made it seem even MORE like how you describe than I expected.

As for the term 'Beaver,' I should remind you that the Beaver is IN FACT the mascot for MIT - nature's engineer - get it? Yes, my husband was very disappointed that the women's sports teams go with the 'Engineers'. He thought I might have a field hockey shirt somewhere in a box in the basement that said 'Beavers' on it.

Such a disappointment. Now I can get my shirt for free. Thanks so much =).

Yeah, I know, I don't comment for a few days and then I can't keep my trap shut. You can't win with me, friend.

Cape Cod Gal said...

That.Is.Awesome! I need to get me one!

Moonspun said...

You are endlessly creative...and hilariously irreverent!

Badass Geek said...

Inna: Go for it!

Frank and Mary: Hygiene is important.

Love Lila: It is stellar.

P: Ha! That is awesome.

JennyMac: It is totally first class.

Myster G: Thank ye, Sir.

Mrs Soup: Totally.

Mad Woman: Do it!

Lola: I'll see what I can do. =)

Laura: Thanks!

Aunt Becky: Somewhere.

Nej: Thank you!

The Peach Tart: Please do!

Aunt Juicebox: Nope. I'm very glad I don't have a beaver.

MIT Mommy: I guess they couldn't have gone with "Beavers" without risking something by it.

Cape Cod Gal: I knew you'd appreciate it. =)

Moonspun: Yes. Yes to both.

I shudder to think of what the image for Cooter Camp would've been.

Nicely done!
