... the official gear of the Bredalución!
Well, technically, it's #gunblogger_conspiracy gear with a quote about me on the back.
TD of The Unforgiving Minute designed them and put them up on Zazzle intending for the people who hang out on the IRC channel to all have matching shirts (with customizable quotes on the back.) Those of us going to the 2A Blogbash in Phoenix next week are planning on outing ourselves as geeks by wearing them on the same day. I'm sure there will be photos for you to laugh at- a bunch of grinning gunnerds and me, looking like, "Who the hell are these guys and why are we wearing the same shirt?"
I'm kidding. I love the funny, smart, irreverent gunnerds of the IRC - I only wish they were all going to the 2A BlogBash. You'd find us sitting in some corner somewhere, furiously typing on our laptops, chatting to each other online. Occasionally someone would LOL and then there'd be a lot of :D-ing. Someone would let us know that they'd BRB, wander off for a drink and we'd all type "see ya," never looking up from our computer screens.
Anyway, I received my shirt yesterday and in the middle of telling the IRC about it, I had an idea. Here's how it went...
breda: I wonder if I blog the shirt, would readers buy it?And then a few minutes later...
TD: breda, we should do a bredalucion design(Be aware that this conversation took place immediate following last night's Gun Nuts Radio - download HERE - and I was enjoying a well deserved post-show adult beverage. Co-hosting is hard work, you know.)
OrangeNeck: we'll make her famouser
breda: and put on the back "Carry your gun - it's a lighter burden than regret."
breda: DO IT
alan: that's awesome
OrangeNeck: "Who's that Breda chick on your shirt?"
TD: THIS I COMMAND!
breda: dooooooooooooooooooooo itOrangeNeck: "Why, she's ONLY the coolest thing since sliced bread!"OrangeNeck: oboy oboy oboy oboy. microbrewery beerz!!!
alan: I think she said that in the librarian voice
breda: I will blog it and people will buy it and we'll use the money for beerz
breda: the title will be "The official shirts of the Bredalucion"
Lokidude: Beerz for the winz!
breda: do it!
TD: breda! I'm doing it!
Anyway, here's what our slightly drunken supernerdy goofiness came up with...I think it's brilliant of course.
