Recently my work section had a t-shirt contest. Anybody who worked in the section could participate, even me. So I did.
Basically, you just had to come up with a design that would end up on the t-shirt. I submitted this:
Guess what? It didn’t get picked. Some crap about “Operation Iraqi Freedom” and blah blah blah got voted on instead. What the fuck? Like my design wasn’t good enough.
Look, I’m not saying that the “winning” design was bad, it just wasn’t as good as mine. It just reflects poorly on the judgement of the other members of my section, really. There were only about two other people in my section who actually “got” my shirt (like there’s that much to “get” any way… It’s just awesomeness, that’s all). Unfortunately, both of those two submitted their own entries into the contest. Theirs weren’t serious contenders, however. I’m not saying they were bad, they just weren’t as good as mine.
