No, but damn if that term doesn't perfectly describe some of the one-note wonder trolls on this board.

The other thing that gives me a purple nipple is that I had just finished designing my own Foron T-shirt
(aplogies and no disrespect to the Isthmus artist):
The front had FORONWARD! in a much larger and more intwresting font pasted over the lower back of a large and more attractive Miss Forward who has been digitally manipurlated to turn her head to look back at us. Duh: not Forward but FORONWARD.
And the back of the short sported a different but even more attractive and interesting font saying:
FORONS IN MY LIFE
I HAVE SOMEONE WHO LOVES ME

oh well.
You should really consult me on these kinds of things.

If you wear the shirt everyday will it protect you from trolls in the same way that the Mormon's magic underwear protect them from evil?

Ever notice that when things get real, admin and jjoyce disappear?
Probably busy combing the DP for more article and promotional ideas to appropriate.

You are mixed up, as usual.

UnderSHIRTS protect you from the sun and the rain.

UnderPANTS protect you from evil.

See?

The reason they're more is because we didn't get as many printed. Also, they're three colors (I think), which is more than one color. I questioned the price as well, but it's a Wildwood production, which is top quality.

As for competing designs, there's no trademark on the word Foron (as far as I know). We're not likely to pursue a lawsuit against blunt's shirt shack should it decide to print a different version.

Uh, that's not the point, jjoyce.
Me (for producing both name and slogan) and nevermore (for Forons) and chance (for Foronward) (for writing brand copy) should be getting royalties regardless.
Let alone a free shirt.
I know posting here is your property but after shooting beautifully huge creative wads into your digital shredder and never saying thank you and then charging us for our own results, you should remember how all this got here:
Forons in general, and a few Fororns specifically.
So you screw us two ways: not cutting us in and not appreciating our content.
You're better than that!
Forons are humans, too.
Most anyway.

Are you finally starting up that band with AJ Love, Chuck Shick, and Mister Blues?

Sorry you got snubbed again blunt. Can't believe they haven't yet hired/fired you as a feature writer. Seriously though Isthmus, it's time to employ blunt. He's funny and he knows this city better than most. Shit, what do you pay your writers anyways? He'd probably do it for free pizza.

I know, right!
My insider informant tells me that certain staffers are fearful that adding me to the roster will erode their status and power.
My superior observational powers and wit, you know.
Sad, but understandable.
