And if you thought the DoD healthcare was bad, boy lemme tell ya!

Just to avoid making GBS threads up the idiots thread and for my own convenience, this is your one-stop shop for the Dronebama t-shirt. I'm giving everyone until May 1 to decide whether or not they want in, from there I'm going to place the order and start collecting money (or vice versa).

First thing's first, however: Design finalization. Barring any bright ideas cropping up, the shirt is going to look like this:



I'm working entirely with whatever fonts and clip art CustomInk.com offers up, so unfortunately I wasn't able to put a little village of mud huts next to the palm trees. Also I think the Obamadrone might be a little too big. This is, I think, the optimal design and any changes will probably be tweaks (resizing Obamadrone, removing the houses or replacing them with something else if someone finds better clip art).

PM me if you want a shirt. If you don't have PMs, comment here. Obviously the more people who buy a shirt the cheaper it gets. Price will be final shirt cost + USPS flat rate small box which I think costs $7.20 (Mr. Nice! claims that a t-shirt will fit in one of those boxes). Tips are appreciated.

Let's do this poo poo.

Edit: Further review shows that there's an additional charge for sizes above XL: 2XL costs an extra $2.50, 3XL is another $3.50, and 4XL costs another $4.50 so those of you who requested one of those sizes let me know if that's cool with you.

It sort of screws up the unit t-shirt aesthetic I was going for. It also occurs to me that if I'm making a t-shirt with Jambo Guy on it, I'd have to kick a few bucks over to Terminal Lance for using his art.

Not gonna lie, I'm not confident in my ability to shove two shirts into one small flat rate box. Multiple shirts might require a bump to a medium box, which I think is an additional five bucks. I'll grab a few boxes from the post office and experiment with it and let you guys know.

I stuffed two in one so long as they were both L and smaller. Just tape the gently caress out of all the edges and you're set.

Or you can charge people a few bucks extra. I was too lazy to go get different boxes.

At the rate we're going these shirts will probably be like ten bucks, which ought to make eating a higher shipping cost a little easier.

USPS also has flat rate padded envelopes that are about a #5 and run $7.20~ to ship, you can get a couple well folded shirts in those too. Just loot the whole stand of them when you go, every post office has a pallet of the drat things.


Put me down for a large. I need something else in the rotation besides a bunch of shirts from work. I'll get PMs or something.

I'm too lazy to use PMs. I'm on that awkward size between L and XL so put me down for an XL. Does APO still count as domestic shipping?

I'm willing to ship internationally if you're willing to pay actual shipping costs, which I will look up before I charge you.

Eh, not always true. I mean, one size up is common, get a XXL if he's a truck driver or rides a desk. He'll grow into it.

At 3 years out I was 300lbs. I've dropped a whole woman of weight, plus the 160lb woman I was married to, in the past five years. Feels good to be in a large with a 34 waist again.

E: hey McNally, change me to a medium. I need a goal to help motivate me to my halloween costume weight. Forrest Gump on his cross country run.
