Barfers, we need to talk. About something important: reality television.
Reality TV is the newest way to make a living doing almost nothing, and you have to love that. How else would you explain the existence of this person?
Or this t-shirt?
This is the heart of the issue. What’s better than coining a catchphrase, then hawking merchandise of said catchphrase? Only saying something stupid and planning to hawk merchandise WITHOUT putting time, energy, or money into the graphic design.
Like this person: Alex McCord of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of New York. Alex says something stupid in the series’ latest episode. 30 seconds in, she declares fellow housewife Sonja Morgan is a THUG IN A COCKTAIL DRESS:
Luckily, Alex is a graphic designer, so her merch is ready and standing by!
LORD. It’s a who’s who of bad fonts. What kind of body fits that dress? It’s like Betty Boop with implants. Maybe we can get the thug out of the cocktail dress and into a graphic design class. Just an idea.
Don’t get all aggressive on me, I’M JUST BEING REAL.
Yes, one of our most infamous, hated trends, by design. A fail all on its own. Though, I must also make the observation that no matter how tempting making a logo out of initials might be, if you initials then form a butt, you have failed. Butts by Design. Cut and print.
This little gem gave one of our barfers, who remains anonymous for their own protection, nightmares as a child.
HOLY SHIT! In Mansfield/Ontario/Richmand county, viruses don’t just get you sick. They chew on GLASS AND NEEDLES! How are we possibly going to stand a chance? We can’t even really prevent them, because they are EATING OUR PREVENTION!
