Hey folks, normally I ignore the existence of my store, but for the first time in a year, there is something new there!

For those of you lucky enough not to have known me for that long, I created a store originally so I could buy the stuff I wanted to wear myself, to share those same awesome Druid themed shirts with you, and then finally so I’d have a way for my non-profit, non-ad blog to generate some cash so I could give prizes to my readers in contests.

If you or your friends have ever purchased anything from the store, thank you very much, I do appreciate it. I really do.

So, on to the topic of today.

There was a recent thing on Twitter, Eli (Jagoex) posted a link to a Warlock on MMO Champion QQing about the lack of promised Warlock quest content.

This QQ was different from the norm… he wanted people to sign a class action lawsuit against Blizzard for not releasing the new Warlock quest content.

The concept of suing for lack of promised content wasn’t what spawned my amusement, though. That seems reasonable enough. If you as a company advertise a product, or in this case content for sale, in order to gain business and then do not actualy provide the content or service or product as advertised, I can see a class action lawsuit as being a potential result.

I wouldn’t think of doing it, but then, I’m not a lawyer, and I’m not a max level Warlock, and that’s not why I pay my monthly fee.

What inspired my amusement was simply the ignorance and lack of apparent education of the person that wrote the post. He has since really fixed a lot of his horrible spelling and grammar, but the original was amazing.

So, there was this thing, and once it was in my brain it was all over for me. I had this mental picture of a Warlock pulling a Darth Vader “Noooooo!”, and it’s all Eli’s fault!

What a simple idea, right? A t-shirt that announces the fact that when bothered by bugs you can hotfix the game, but you simply can’t hotfix stupid.

Along comes Tesh, who thought the idea was worthy of seeing the light of day as a shirt…

Therefore, I proudly present the newest addition to the Big Bear Butt store

Our newest shirt. :) I hope you like it as much as I do.

If you’re interested in a shirt with the image, just click on the Cafepress Store button at the top of the sidebar, or click on the image itself to go right to the Cafepress page for the shirt!

As always, thank you Tesh for bringing my scribbled ideas to bigger and better-than-life glory!

    This is pretty damn brilliant. I could think of a few folks that’d happily sport this design, haha. Love it!

    Love the new T-shirt. Loving my new Nexus 7. Going to get so much more reading done now!

    I love that T-Shirt idea. I kinda want one… I’ll see how the funds fall.

    I didn’t see the post before he fixed some of his errors, but in that link, he did apologize for his “bad english.” That apology [plus the fact that WoW embraces an extremely multinational community] leads me to believe that he might be ESL. Now, I’m a hard-core “grammar nazi,” but I tend to be a little more lenient in ESL [English as a Second Language] cases. I mean, let’s face it, there’s enough weridness in American English to throw off a high percentage of native speakers.

    That said, I’m glad the discussion about the thread led you to that amazing phrase, “You can’t hot-fix stupid.” I may have to start working that into my database of stock conversational clips. And maybe you can work in something on the back of the shirt to the effect of “and there’s nothing for it in the upcoming patches, either.” [Only shorter, and more witty.]

      Might be a good place for a “Patch Pending*” with a smaller “*Citation Needed” or something. Do people usually buy two sided shirts, though? I always thought they were a hard sell, since the joke is broken in half.

      • Mugician13 says:

        Some of my favorite shirts have been of the two-sided joke variety. But that’s just from a personal perspective. They could well be difficult to market, I don’t know.
