    I’m going to update my secret Santa info on reddit :)

    Gah! I think I just lost a SAN check.

    The product info is great: “This shirt is an illustration–nay, a blueprint!–for cross-cultural get-alongness. Wearing this t-shirt will transform you into a paragon of human goodwill and have you pissing magical rainbows of peace and happiness. Also, unicorns will enter the picture somewhere, because everyone will be that happy.”

        That means their shit is a liquid containing the elements that have a rainbow spectrum similar to earth’s atmosphere.

        • Sweetredtele

          Or it’s MAGIC!

          • http://youtu.be/fCNvZqpa-7Q Kevin_Of_Bangor

            Damn right it is magic.

        • Timothy McLean

          I approve of any attempt to scientifically justify magical phenomena!

          Next challenge: How do therianthropes change their mass so extremely when they change forms?

          • baal

            They store the extra mass in the Dirac Sea. duh.

          Or it’s oily- you can get rainbow-looking sheens from oil slicks on water reflecting the colors of light as they ripple.

    • SJ Carter

      I’m glad you like it! I was particularly inspired when I wrote the description for this one; I think it’s my favorite so far. :-P

  • cary_w

    Sometimes the best thing about reading this blog is seeing shirts like this surrounded by ads for Scientology and magic cross pendants :D

  • northierthanthou.com

    Bwaha! That is hilarious.

  • MichaelNewsham

    Is this by the same person that did the great ‘Cthulhu meets Hello Kitty ‘ comics? the artwork looks similar

    • SJ Carter

      Nope, not us.

      • MichaelNewsham

        Thanks for the reply- love your stuff

  • Rain

    It would look great on a billboard.

    • Randay

      It needs the FSM.

      • Heather Posey Welborn

        Hey! FSM is REAL! Don’t you talk about my monster like that, or we’re gonna have a PROBLEM!

        • Randay

          I apologize. Maybe his/her Monsterness could be placed in the corner where the Sun now is with his noodly appendages in place of the rainbow, maybe strangling the Jesus and Mo usurpers. I give the benefit of doubt for Cthulhu who may be an ally.

  • http://retroremixes.wordpress.com/ Retro Remixes

    I’ll take one in every size.

    • SJ Carter

      Please do!

  • keddaw

    Isn’t the rainbow the symbol of those evil gayz? Wouldn’t that upset Mo and Big J’s followers?

    If so, order me one now.

    • WallofSleep

      “Wouldn’t that upset Mo and Big J’s followers?”

      *sigh* It’s the same everywhere I go. No one gives a flying fuck if the devotees of Cthulhu are offended by seeing him depicted in a scene of kindness and love with a pair of degenerate primates. This is isn’t the dimension I grew up in, I can tell you that. I barely recognize it anymore. DECLINE!

      • keddaw

        Cthulhu is just a myth, you gullible fool…

            I wasn’t going to reply but everytime I read the quote you posted, I love it again.

        • baal

          Can you really be that sure? I think you need to spend some time with my and my friends and visit a swamp. You might then understand your peril better.

          • keddaw

            It’s simply His Noodly Appendages messing with you.

  • Timothy McLean

    I’m not sure what to comment on first…

    I’ve got it! Shouldn’t Mohammed have lost all of his SAN by now, turning him into a gibbering wreck of a prophet?

  • Dennis Rusinak

    How about the countless paintings of Adam and Eve with belly buttons? Do the good Christians complain about the inaccuracy of that?

    • Randay

      Good point that I hadn’t thought of.

  • baal

    I love Cthulhu – but where are his wings?

    • SJ Carter

      They’re primly folded behind his back.

      Real answer: it was an artistic decision so that the picture wouldn’t look too cluttered.

  • L.Long

    Sorry but the image is ALL wrong.

    Mo was a real dick and judging by his followers not all that cute.

    Jesus wasn’t any cuter and was a real bastard (in every way).

    And Cthulhu was always hungry and would have eaten them both and the artist as well.
