Competition time! Win fabulous cash and prizes!

OK, so I’m not actually giving away cash.  And whether or not the prize is fabulous depends on how easily impressed you are.  Inspired by Sandra, I’ve decided to have a contest for people to submit potential t-shirt slogans for Mr Angry.

I’ve been meaning for months to do new t-shirts but I keep failing to get around to it.  When I say “I” am going to do it, that means getting my girlfriend to do the lettering.  Because it would look like shit if I did it.  Sandra actually suggested one months ago that I had been intending to make: “Do I look like I give a fuck?”  Another I had been intending to make was “Shut the fuck up.”

There are also a few more ideas I’ve already had shown in the attached videos.  But here are the contest rules (subject to completely arbitrary changes at my whim) for people who don’t want to watch the video:

1. Write a slogan that you think would make a good Mr Angry t-shirt

2. The winner will be chosen by me, guided mainly by popular acclaim but also maybe the one I like best won’t be the one with most votes

3. Don’t enter if you’re going to get miffed if I don’t pick your entry.  That would make me sad.

4. The prize will be your very own one-of-a-kind hand lettered Mr Angry t-shirt with your winning logo/slogan.  So make it something you’d want to wear or at least occasionally show people.

5. That’s basically it unless I make up any more arbitrary rules.

6. The judge’s decision is final.  No correspondence will be entered into.  Don’t even think of trying to fuck with me over this.

Oh yeah, one more point, when making t-shirts for myself I basically chose the cheapest t-shirts I could find.  I promise to actually use a good quality shirt for the prize.  You can even nominate colour and style (within reason).  So get to it!

    well, there’s always the reliable “go ahead, make my day”.

  2. Dude, I tried to watch your video but it was longer than 3-5 minutes.. ha..ha.ha..! :)

    I’m gonna have to think about this whole “Mr. Angry Slogan” concept.

    I guess – “Why don’t you go outside and play hide and go Fuck yourself?” is too obvious?

    (sorry, I know you want video, but I’ve never invested in that particular technology – but I’ve got a SUPER idea for a video entry so I might just have to do something about that.)

    Cheers!!

  3. Remember how we came up with the t-shirt idea?? The ‘in the neck with a hatchet’ shirt that I had designed! It is the coolest thing that a year later we NOW have a t-shirt competition.

    Oh, btw my ass does NOT have a 30 minute video tolerance. 10 max. That is because it is old and I MUST get up and move to keep from permanently being glued to the chair.

    There is not a cow in Texas if that isn’t the truth. :D

  4. Vladimir

    How about “Kill yourself against the wall!” :)

  5. Anthony

    A couple of my favourite sayings:

    G_ F_CK Y__RS_LF, would you like to buy a vowel?

    and

    Some people are alive simply because it’s illegal to kill them

    “6. The judge’s decision is final. No correspondence will be entered into. Don’t even think of trying to fuck with me over this.”

    That rule sucks, I was planning on kidnapping your family, bad action movie style, and holding them to ransom for ONE BILLION DOLLARS! (puts finger to mouth) or the competition prize, whichever is worth most. :)

  7. Rob

    How about a reference to our little in joke that lasted for a massive 2 comments before I forgot about it.

    “My name isn’t Harold!”
    or how about
    “I’m the evil Harold!”

    I suppose putting a pic of Harold Bishop on it would be out of the question? ;)

  8. Rob

    Or a reference to Chappelle’s Show:
    “I’m Mr Angry, bitch!”

  9. Rob

    “I am Angry, hear me roar!”

  10. Rob

    “The name’s Angry, Mr Angry. License to kill.”

    I’ll stop now! :)

  11. How about “You Piss Me Off!”

  12. Mitchell

    How about “Everybody’s so STUPID!”

  13. Paul Brown

    I actually designed a whole series of T-shirts a little while back in the style of despair.com, but I never got around to making them. Feel free to use any or all of the following (preferrably with an appropriate image):

    Motiviation
    I don’t care how much you
    have – I don’t want any

    Mediocrity
    When just enough
    is good enough

    Procrastination
    I’ll get back to you on that

    Perseverance
    Incomptence is no reason to give up

    Leadership
    The Desire to be the Biggest
    Cock in the Henhouse

    Teamwork
    Together we can look less incompetant

    There’s no ‘I’ in team,
    but there’s one in “Pretentious Tosser”

    Empathy
    I know exactly how you feel,
    I’m just not interested

  14. This is WAY better than thinking for myself! I should have done it ages ago!

  15. Oh dammit! I think your “This is WAY better than thinking for myself!” Slogan wins…

    How about:

    “People are idiots, they’ll believe anything they read.” Or is that too subtle?

    Or as per my suggestion for Neopoleon.com “What would Mr. Angry do?” and maybe stick a picture on it of you too.

  16. Sam

    Hmms, how about:
    “People like you are put on this Earth to make me feel better about myself.”

    Too long?
    I dunno maybe something stupid like.
    “You are the weakest link.
    ..
    Now get out of the gene pool”

    Or something around the whole “You’re contaminating the gene pool” idea.

  17. Danny

    “Your wasting (O2) /Oxygen.”
    “You are a waste of Oxygen.”

  18. APSmitty

    “Hi, I’m Mr. Angry.

    AND YOU TOO FUCKING HAPPY!”

  19. Massif: I have to get famous enough that I can do the abbreviation “WWMAD?” on bumper stickers and people will know what it means.

    Danny: Nice, I’ve always favoured telling people they’re a waste of protein.

    Smitty: But I like to make people happy ;)

  20. robbinsrun

    hmmmmm… here’s a few…

    Too Stupid to Breathe

    a good argument for
    Spay and neuter humans

    yeeeHaw: mutherfkr

    Oh bite me

    not worth the clean-up

    road rage: bumper cars on steroids

    waste removal: grave diggers needed

  21. Elizabeth

    My entry would be
    “Fucktard”

  22. Robin: nice selection, thanks!

    Elizabeth: concise and to the point. I like it!

  23. Hm.

    “Fuck you and the horse you rode in on.”

    “Stfu.”

    “Obviously not the brightest cookie in the fountain, are you?”

    I know it makes no sense, but I overheard it once and it amused the fuck out of me.

    “How about a nice cup of shut the fuck up?”

  24. Oh, or-

    “Dumbass.”

  25. Excellent contributions Callin, thanks!

  26. Mandi

    After reading a number of your other posts, I think ” SH!T The Hell Up ” would be nice.

  27. How about:

    “This may be a crappy slogan, but I’m still cleverer than you.”

    “Congratulations! You can read!”

    “I’m not angry at you, you pathetic little worm.”

    “Anger + 2 by 4 = Get the hell out of my way”

  28. Ooo…Oooo!! This one would translate better if it were on video – but if you’ve seen the movie “In The Heat of the Night” or even “Lion King” you’ll get it:

    “They call me………..MR. ANGRY!!!”

    bwa…ha..ha….. I actually prefer the Lion King version, but then I love Pumba. :)

  29. Vladimir

    > “Congratulations! You can read!”

    Or: “If you can read this, you don’t need an ophtalmologist.” (should be printed in tiny letters)

  30. Katrina

    “Read my blog”
    angryaussie.wordpress.com (in italics)

    on the back of the shirt

    “Some things just piss me off”

  31. “I’m blogging about what an idiot you are”

    “You wouldn’t like me when I’m angry.”

    “I’m OK but you’re an asshat”
    re: http://beatsentropy.com/2006/11/29/passive-depressive-10/

    “You’re breathing. Stop that.”

  32. Mandi: yes, I’m the internet’s biggest shit expert right now ;)

    Massif: Nice, particularly the first one. I actually have one very similar to #2 – “If you can read this, you can read”

    CinnKitty: I think that one would get people thinking. Or worried.

    Vladimir: nice variation!

    Katrina: I like that. Or I could point people to the blog with the slogan: “angryaussie – Google it, bitch”

    Engtech: Nice. #1 could be particularly good for promoting the blog.

  33. How about:

    Arse-wipe – Yes you!

    or maybe just:

    Who do you think you are American?

  34. wow. i didn’t watch the video but is the point to insult everyone who sees the shirt? or just to express anger?

    i’d better watch the video and then i’ll be back with some appropriate suggestions because god knows i don’t have enough t-shirts.

  35. Matthew Holford

    It’s not original, although I can’t remember where I saw it first…

    “I refuse to enter into a battle of wits with an unarmed opponent.”

    Or if somebody you don’t particularly want to talk to greets you in the street/office/whatever:

    “That’s great… let’s leave the rest to the imagination.”

    Matt

  36. Sir Henry Casingbroke

    Angry’s just another word
    for nothing left to choose

  37. Endless: some designs sure to get a punch in the mouth :)

    laurie: angry first and foremost – insults are optional

    Matthew: I love your unwanted conversation stopper

    Sir Henry: Dude, harsh. I think. I’m really not sure.

  38. Elizabeth

    “People call you stupid for a reason”

  39. Elizabeth

    Or how about this

    ” Um hmmmm, oh wait, I stopped listening, what was that again?”

  40. Nice contributions, thanks Elizabeth.
