Just in time for all your Ramadan gift needs

Robbo's wife has been pressuring me for awhile to get our t-shirt sales going. My sense is that we'll do it through cafepress; even though we'll clear two cents per, the thought of having llamabutcher gear out there just gets me all, well, leafblower fired up if you know what I mean.

So....what should be the LLamabutcher T-shirt design? And by t-shirt design, I of course mean thongs. Because what would really say "joyful greetings upon the 2006th birthday of the Son of the Most High" more than a thong with surly sunglasses wearing, smoking LLamas on it? Exactly: not much.

Anyhoo, what should be the look? My original thought would be some variation on the classic logo:

(and all it's subsequent permutations: Batman and Robin LLamabutchers, Obi-wan and Princess Leia LLamabutcher, Uncle Sam and Lady Liberty LLamabutchers, Tijuana Bikeweek prison LLamabutchers etc.) (not that there's anything wrong with that)

There's the Ferris Bueller motif:

The infamous Colin Firth Darcy LLamabutcher:


A little retro-oh-four look:

Let us know in the TastyBits(TM) mail sack what you think. Our early retirements depend on your answer!

UPDATE: I'd like to use this one, but there's no way I'm going to subdivide my share of the crazy blog money with Sadie.

Classic Llamabutcher logo, with llamabutchers.mu.nu beneath in that wacky font you use in your photoshops.

Simple. Elegant. Says it All.

You could add a Yip! Yip! or an Orgle! Orgle! beneath, but I think that might be gilding the lily.

Make sure they're large coffee mugs. I'm good for at least two of 'em. Hell, I might sell up at a markup.

Coffe mugs good! I would also go for the "traditional Llama Butchers" tee-shirt. Although I am so HOT for the Robbo as David thingy!

At least he isn't in drag!
Would that sell?

No, dammit! No drag!

Robbo - I am so sorry but, you readers demand it!

My vote's for the classic or the bueller motif.

Just don't do a big ass picture on the front. Something on the left chest (possibly the classic logo) then a catch phrase or two on the back.

But that's just what I'd buy and maybe a mug or two.

I gots some LLama drag, as a matter of fact.

Yes, Llama drag... That is what would sell!
