Wanted to do something totally ridiculous, potentially offensive, with a pinch of shock factor...which is, essentially, what Maxim is all about.
is that lipstick and a sausage on a stick?
I don't know what those words mean...but the design and presentation layouts are awesome!!!
doesn't in jest mean something along the lines of a mask or facade, like a jestor?
The word JEST just means joke, as in:
"Surely you JEST madame!"
I don't really get the joke, but whatever.
Very nice illustration, but I'm afraid I don't "get it."
(can't believe i have to explain this...)
JEST means witty or joke, yes.
IN JEST sounds also like INGEST, which means to take into the body by the mouth.
SO. We have:
4. Cocktail weiner
It's a lovely design, but to be honest, even after your explanation it doesn't quite mean anything to me when I look at it. I do get what you're suggesting, I think, and maybe it doesn't help that I am familiar with the expression "in jest" so that it doesn't sound like anything else when I see it... I suppose I do get the outline of an idea of joking obscenity though. I just wouldn't want to wear it if I didn't think anybody would understand what I was trying to say.
just think of it as a talking point.
DANG. Nobody gets my lame, subtle, mind-in-the-gutter humor.
Got almost the same reaction to my Mustache Ride design.
Does there has to be a blatent penis on the shirt for anyone to "get it"?
i think this is good
Where's the penis?
Oh, wait. It's indirect humor. Sorry, lady, but indirect humor doesn't play well with the mob. If you don't spell it out using monosyllables, most won't get it. There is that aesthete elite who will...but let's face it, we hate them anyway. Posers.
Your typography could be better and the balance of the layout is a bit off, but it's still an nicely done illustration (much like the rest of your stuff) and a good idea.
No, wait....where's the peinis?
....well i got it just from the thumbnail.
penis=weiner, dumbutts. great design. i'm giving it a 5.
Phooey, i don't think it matters if you get it or not (though really it's kinda tricky not to), it's a good desgin.
how does the lipstick fit in now?
Where do ladies apply lipstick? On their LIPS.
AKA where their MOUTHS are.
AKA where the cocktail weiner goes.
For the love of...I'm surrounded by...I give up.
*throws wacom pen
IT IS GOOD, MAN.
if you decide on throwing your wacom too, tell me where to find it. :) 5
Why not just have lips sucking a sausage?
If you're gonna imply blow-jobs, the link between lipstick & cocktail weiners is too vague at first (or nineteenth) glance.
see, the in jest already implies mouth, so why do you need the lipstick? i understand it has to do with the mouth.
the problem is that you are surrounded by people who think this is stupid.
i do think it LOOKS nice by the way.
gha! it's not that confusing! I like the content and your design, good job.
It's seriously not that bloody hard to get!!! I think it looks nice also, and I !would! buy that. But I can't. Good luck, though.
i think its great. funny, and honestly, whose not gonna get it? the only reason i wouldnt buy it is because i wouldnt be aloud to wear it (im 15..)
but id definitly buy it otherwise. 5
Jeez... i got this right away... if any of these ever get made... i will wear one proudly
