Merchandising Your Very Heart and Soul

We used to offer T-shirts around here. You may have noticed. Hey, maybe you even bought one. And thank you if you did. If you wanted to but didn't, it was probably because our shirts were lost in the mail (seriously) for about six months, and when we finally got them, we realized that all we had left were at the triple-extra-ends of the spectrum. We could have maybe outfitted, say, a cartoon family--but you, me, the rest of our readers? No way. So with all the realistic sizes out of stock, we decided to devote a long time (three hours, break for lunch) to new merchandise, perfect for the holiday season. And believe me, this is all I'm getting for my family, and they are going to seriously be asking me if I even bothered to check out their Amazon wishlists but still, thanks for the lawn-mowing shirt. Yes, it will be just like every Christmas.

So here's what we've got available: A bevy of tees that take off of state schools and their colors. We determined this would be a good idea since last year's reader survey showed most of you, at some point, either attended university or broke into and entered a university lab.

But wait there's more... more shirts, some mugs... go have a look for yourself.

But there is not accounting for our taste. So if you have an idea for a shirt or a kind of merchandise you'd like to see in our store, please let us know. Send us your swell concept ("NOT GELLIN'"), your catchy slogan ("MORE THEREMIN"), your screen-printable manifesto ("I'M NOT SAFE FOR WORK") and, time permitting, we can work something up for you. We can't promise results, but we can promise that we'll try.

Enjoy, happy holidays, best wishes,
