Over in the UK teachers love to make kids look stupid by asking them to repeat tongue twisters in class as fast as they can. How they laugh when the shame faced pupils develop stammers and other speech impediments.

This one above is the most popular weapon of choice, red lorry, yellow lorry.

(A lorry is a kind of truck, for those not familiar with Englishisms.)

.MINUS.

This is another amzing type tee you've created. 5

I like the design. I definitely needed the explanation though, but it's still great.

I had no idea 'Lorry' was just an English thing...

I love it! beautiful type. My only question is why does the last "lorry" look different? $$5!

Never heard of lorry. We always said "Red Leather Yellow Leather." Try saying "Swiss Wrist Watch" five times.

In the US, I've most often heard "lorry" replaced with "leather."

who cares if you've never heard the word lorry, it doesn't make the design look any less awesome!

I love the type, i love the idea, im just not into "lorry". Toy boat is one that's hard to say over and over, but maybe just having the word "tongue" over and over and the entire thing being a piece of tounge twisting would have a better impact? Still great stuff.

On I like is 'i want a propper cup of coffee in a proper copper coffee pot'

haha, this is so awesome! If it doesn't print at threadless, please get it printed somewhere else.

I'm making a US version. Hopefully that one will be more marketable.

Thanks for support.

That's all well and good, but I want this one

wempu

it's common knowledge to know about the "red lorry, yellow lorry" thingie they have in UK. atleast all of my friends got this. I think this one's great, please don't bother making a US version, if someone doesn't get this, they shouldn't buy it. I hope this gets printed, maybe Threadless folk are a bit smarter than those who complain that "there are no lorries in US!". 5.

Shitty score, man. Deserves way better, will be interested to see how the US version fares.

low score, but still a good chance of a print

Gar0

Ta, I'm surprised a type tee got this response at all. I think the US version will only fair slightly better.

No account?
