Haw! Who would wear this monstrosity? You can buy it here. But you won't, will you? Will you?

He looks like an angry fetus. In a ringer tee. Weird.

Ike the Eisenhower

That is... disturbing. Ashamedly, I have to admit that I find Joe the Plumber *small voice* hot, in a penis-head, blue-collar sort of way. I'd slap a ball gag on him and have my way with him anytime, but not if he showed up looking like Lex Luthor's mother without her wig like he looks there.

Does he get the proceeds from this? If so, this is his best chance to get in that oppressive tax bracket Obama is about to impose.

This appeals to his audience much more than some dumb ghost written book ever will.

The picture looks like a cross between Mr. Clean and the creepy cop on that show The Shield.

I wouldn't fuck him with a 12 foot pole.

Zip nailed it--it's Eisenhower, if he were suffering from a particularly bad bout of dysentery.

JR said...

Is he related to James Carville?

I wonder if I could get that printed up on toilet paper? It would sort of be a theme.

PSP is the art expert, not I, but to me, this style looks very Soviet. Weird choice for someone who is so anti-socialist.

Cecilia said...

Did anyone else see the new x files movie? Because he kinda looks like the Russian guy with cancer....

What fresh hell hath desktop publishing wrought?

All at a below-market price of $14.99!

I guess the RNC is subsidizing the 5 extra bucks.

That IS very "Soviet"-looking! I only wonder why anyone would want to wear a shirt with such a dunderhead on it. Has anyone else thought that JTP resembles failed McCain fuhrer Steve Schmidt to a startling degree? But Bullethead Steve immediately identifiable to the public, so I guess nobody's put him on a T-shirt yet.

Joe the Icon

Soviet? This is clearly an attempt to rip off the Shepherd Fairey Obama HOPE image (Google it). I am assuming the blotchy colors are a result of over-enthusiastic JPEG compression and are solid on the actual item. Still, pretty bad. He looks more like the bald guy from the Ghost Hunters than J the P.

Those in the know will realize this t-shirt design is an exact replica of a poster issued in 1964 by the Ministry of Labor of the German Democratic Republic, titled Josef der Klempner, honoring the courageous Hero of Socialist Labor who continued to make plumbing repairs in the basement of a dilapidated apartment building in East Berlin until he froze to death, hip deep in icy water. Thus the blue tinge on the Hero's face.

The name of that heroic plumber -- Samuel Wurzelbacher!!

Haven't you wondered exactly what happened to all those power-hungry party leaders of the GDR? Why hasn't the death of Lee Atwater been fully investigated? Where exactly was Stefan Schmidt born? What about the Watergate Plumbers?

What murky fluids surge in the darkest depths of the so-called "Republican" Party?

Fran said...

Is it an *unlicensed* design..... like Joe/sam-the unlicensed plumber?

If he runs for congress what will his slogan be??

Joe-the-plumber gives a shit?

mmm... boy I bet its selling like hotcakes.

My 2cents to this shirt...
Who ever made this couldn't even get the design right. There are over a dozen sites that show how to replicate the Obama poster easily.
You'll see these shirts in Goodwill and 99cent store soon enough.

he should sell them in Neiman Marcus -- so Palin could buy a few for $150,000

I went to the Conservative Paradise site you linked to, tempted to buy one, but then I saw the Gun Totin' Sarah t-shirt. Must... not... add.... to... cart... help me...
