Cooter Gear

My friend Pimpsmax showed interest in purchasing a Greasy Cooters jersey the other day, and then she gave me the idea of offering some Cooter Gear on cafepress.com for anyone who might be interested. Well, I had no idea that cafepress.com was so simple because 20 minutes later I had an online Greasy Cooter store all set up.

I have mixed emotions about Cooter gear. On the one hand, the vulgar name is utterly distasteful and contradicts my innocent nature. On the other hand, I designed the logos and feel that I did a pretty damned good job.

But cafepress.com is honestly pretty awesome. They got tons of cool products to slap your logo on:



Although it was this product in particular that made me really think I was taking the team name way too far past innuendo...

Did anyone else ever have to watch that old 70's video in junior high economics class where the 70's teenagers with the too-big hair and the too-tight shorts decide to start a T-shirt screenprinting business, expounding on all the hard work involved in business ownership while at the same time providing valuable education about supply, demand, and other totally forgettable economic principles? Or was that just a Minnesota thing? Regardless, times sure have changed because all I had to do was upload a logo and I'm in bidness!

Nevermind that the profit margin on almost every item is only a dollar and that I'd be lucky to sell ten shirts total... Gee maybe I could have learned a thing or two from that grade school video had I paid more attention.

awesome. i think at the very least everybody on your team should be required to wear the 3/4 length sleeve baseball cooter shirt.

that would instantly make you infinitely cooler than the other teams' schlubs in stupid street clothes.

damn. i wish i was a greasy cooter now. (insert punchline here)

I already told you I don't like this idea.

But maybe I'm just jealous because the fact that I earned a greasy cooter jacket now means nothing...

Who keeps the profits?

Ha, now that I have a Greasy Cooters jacket, I'm gonna go rob a bank!

I have mixed emotions about the fact that I even want one.

I bet you'd sell a million "planet dan" T's!

Profits, if there ever are any, will most likely go to covering the costs of hosting the Cooter website.

Iím surprised that you didnít post this much earlier, how are people gonna get their orders placed and received before my birthday?

By Blogger Kristina, at 12:03 PM  




I think it's a pretty rad idea. I might buy my husband one of them shirts. Or the thong.

By Blogger Elle Marie, at 12:07 PM  




I'm with colleen - planet dan shirts would be a good idea too.

I think the boxers and thongs should be part of the team uniform.

I can see Bad Apples and T-bone running around in just their skivvies...

I want a Planetdan t-shirt....open a planetdan store!

By Anonymous Anonymous, at 9:21 PM  




Nope, we saw that in San Diego too...

Huh. And this whole time I thought "cooter" was a sly Dukes of Hazzard reference.

By Anonymous lola, at 10:37 AM
