putting spam to good use

spamshirt does exactly what it suggests. We take spam, and we put it on a shirt. In the process, spamshirt is cleaning up the online environment - recycling useless spam into something practical and stylish.

I dont know, I think its kind of funny. The only thing about spam that amuses me are the subject lines. I'd like to have a couple of the best ones on a shirt.

Sort of a when life gives you lemons, make lemonade mentality, I guess.

It's funny, but 25 pounds for a shirt? That's $45US!

This can be taken from our list of spam, or you can enter one of your own


so... we're paying $45US for a custom-printed T-shirt?

Depends on who's wearing it, I'd imagine. It'd look stupid on a guy, but women have a way of being able to pull off even the geekiest of outfits. I think perhaps the problem might be with the font size. That and the price tag. Unless the shirt comes with a free lid of pot, I don't see how this is going to go over very well.

Designing one's own custom T-Shirts online is not an original idea. It can be done elsewhere on the 'Net for less, with better results. You have to buy in bulk though, and sell at a profit. Regardless, it's more trouble than it's worth. I'd rather just shave my chest and use a marksalot.
