Get your GetReligion swag

jitcrunch aspxI warned you that there would soon be some kind of GetReligion store.

We do not, at this point, have an official M.Z. Hemingway baby shower account set up at CafePress, but that is a possibility. Please note that the one-piece baby suit comes in blue and white, as well as the fashion-era hot pink. You may want to delay your orders for a few more weeks, pending additional input from Ms. Hemingway and Co.

Hey, M.Z., would the pink or the blue go better — at this point — with the highlights in your hair?

Like I said in an earlier post, we elected to avoid having a GetReligion thong and we skipped the controversy of having men’s boxers in the menu, too.

The official beer stein is available for use by Lutherans, Catholics, Anglicans, Southern Baptists in parts of Kentucky and others who have no doctrinal problems with that part of God’s creation. The rest of you guys are on an honor system.

With a nod to my Orthodox friends who live and grill in the Sunbelt, I should note that the barbecue apron should be used only during non-fasting seasons. Also, I have no interest in hearing anyone’s claims that tofu works just fine on a grill (although I hear that shrimp is another matter).

So what else do you think we need to add to this rough draft of the GetReligion swag store?

I wonder if they would do book covers that could be used on either Bibles or Associated Press Stylebooks?

    My wife collects keychains so that’s a possibility. My father-in-law collects golf balls and shot glasses. How about someone doing a home brew for getReligion–Luther Lager, Calvin Near Beer, Doctor Pomer Pilsner, Henry VIII Ale, et. al. Is there a possibility that if a regular reader is a published author that that reader’s books could be sold through the store with a cut going to gR?

    No thongs? No boxers? Don’t tell me, no special Mormon, Mitt Romney-endorsed LDS undergarments either?

    No thongs? No boxers?

    Sorry, John, you’ll have to get your thongwear from The Wittenburg Door in their “Truth is Stranger Than Fiction” Section:

    Prayer Panties.

    I would’ve linked to the string bikini with strategically placed images of Christ, but even iconoclastic Baptists have their limits.

    I wanted to say something about them, but anything I would say would get me in trouble. I think instead I’ll just go pray for forgiveness for my thoughts.

    Terry, I know that you guys didn’t create this blog to promote yourselves or hawk your wares, but I’d love to see the GetReligion store include books and collections of articles written by the Fab Four (formerly Fab Five) of this blog. I enjoyed your interview in the Door a year or so ago, by the way.

    I would love to be able to dress my 4.5 month old daughter in Get Religion outfits. And, please, Mollie, set up a baby registry. We are big fans and would love to send something as a gift.

    You all are way too kind! My whole parenting approach thus far is to get as little as possible for the baby. Of course the baby’s grandparents are already circumventing my approach!
