[color=#000000ost_uid0]This quesiton is mainly for [bost_uid0]Zeke,[/bost_uid0] but I guess that
everyone else can contribute some ideas about it
too.

I just wanna know, are there ever going to be any
types of [bost_uid0]5MV T-shirts[/bost_uid0] made available to all us
ravenous fans out here roaming around the world?

I'd like to see the big red word [bost_uid0]"FIVER"[/bost_uid0] written
across the chest and the website on the back.
Maybe just take a pic of the home page and then
print that out, or write the phrase "Life is short,
so should comedy be."
:dead:
Ok, never mind that last part about the phrase...
but what about making some apparel for us to
wear, eh?[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0] Â I [bost_uid0][iost_uid0]love[/iost_uid0][/bost_uid0] that idea, FatMat, but I doubt it'll happen. For one thing, this is a not-for-money-period site, and Paramount would come down on Zeke if he tried to sell anything related to the site. Doesn't mean we can't wish though.

When I saw the title of this thread, what popped into my mind was a picture of someone wearing a black T-shirt with the basic white-wedge-in-a-red-circle logo on the chest. I suppose the textual logo would then be on the back, about where a baseball player would have his name.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]What's to stop you from buying some of that printer-transfer stuff and printing off the logo (or whatever you wanted)? As far as I know it's really not that expensive, though I'm not sure if the transfers survive that well over a long persiod of time.[/colorost_uid0]

My giant hoard of lawyers.

(Incidentally, there *have* been plans to get some 5MV merchandise out there. Â Think four-letter words beginning with "s" and ending with "oon".)[/colorost_uid0]

[quoteost_uid0="PointyHairedJedi"]What's to stop you from buying some of that printer-transfer stuff and printing off the logo (or whatever you wanted)?[/quoteost_uid0]

My inherent laziness and ineptness in all things ironing.


I'm envisioning a series of T-shirts not unlike that for [iost_uid0]The Far Side[/iost_uid0], with an amusing combination of a word bubble containing a classic line or two from a fiver, and a screen capture featuring the speaker(s). I'm simultaneously proving yet again that I am easily amused. [/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]"Just Five It" would be a good one, but you'd probably end up getting your ass sued off by Nike.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Actually, not only have 5MV shirts been planned, but the "store" is already online. Â However, the site I'm with -- CafePress -- is in the middle of making some controversial policy changes that may ultimately force me to find another site, so I haven't made the link available yet. Â I'll keep you posted.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]99 degrees....?

I'll overlook the fact that that's in Fahrenheit, and just be insanely jealous instead.[/colorost_uid0]

You can be jealous about 99 degrees, if it were really 99 degrees, you wouldn't [iost_uid0]be[/iost_uid0].

[quoteost_uid0]He's just jealous because Fahrenheit is actually more precise, per digit, than Celsius.[/quoteost_uid0]
But it's easier to convert Celsius to Kelvin than it is to convert Fahrenheit to Kelvin, so we win. [/colorost_uid0]
