Our offices are right next to Mr. S Leather, so it isn't unusual for me to see lots of sexual culture references on folks on the street, but when I walked down to the Moscone center to grab some stuff at the hardware store yesterday at lunch I was bewildered by the number of folks declaring their ambivalence with "Switch" T-shirts. It took me all the way to 4th street to remember that it's MacWorld[Wiki] week. I need a Linux[Wiki] shirt that says "Top" on the front and gives the appropriate output on the back.

Have you got the hardware to handle a Top shirt in Frisco?

Petronius beat me to the thought. That's a claim not to be made lightly.

Hey, if a bunch of Mac[Wiki] users can claim to play both sides, I'm pretty sure I not only know better what their networks really want, but have the skills to keep those machines in control without injuring them. And I can do amazing tricks with knots in Cat5.

Hey, don't knock the Mac users! Can I get a t-shirt that says

Don't forget the prompt.

We definitely need a single source for nerdy sex-related t-shirts. The "top" one would certainly be a big seller.

I just wish the people who sell Virtual PC or VMWare would make a line of t-shirts. The possibilities are endless. (And I don't claim trademark rights for the custom t-shirt I made for the Gay Pride Parade circa 1985 that said "Both sides now"...) (But was upstaged by a really cute woman riding a unicycle, wearing a t-shirt that said "Bisexual built for two"...)
