Yesterday there was an interesting post on Boing Boing about the bizarrely icky mating practices of giant squids, and as one would expect, the URL was promptly forwarded to a few of my friends. Inspired by the post’s title, Den wrote back, “‘Violent, Tangled and Deeply Weird’ – I think that’s a great t-shirt slogan.”

And so it was.

So what else could I do but whip up a design and throw it on CafePress?

squid t-shirt

The print-on-demand stuff makes this pretty easy, so I went ahead and tossed together a whole store with a plethora of “Violent and Tangled” products on there. I think the boxers and thongs are especially funny.

I set the markup on everything at a buck, and any dough CafePress sends my way from these things will be donated to Creative Commons, so I hope other people find it as funny as I did.

The article you referenced is interesting, but its discussion board is even better – kind of violent, tangled and deeply weird! : )

Oh good Lord you evil genuis…… would it be wrong to buy a crapload to be sold at the office? It could be our new uniform….. My guys would get a kick out of it…..or not but I sure would.

I am with Jan, the article was great but the discussion board was even better.
