T-Shirt Of The Month #003: THE TWEET OF TWITHULHU

July 1st, 2010 | Work

This is basically a joke that Ariana and I pull each month in our joint guise as the International Electrophonic Unit. Basically, we take some of the stupider things I’ve said on Twitter and elsewhere, often in a state of extreme alcoholic refreshment or severe sleep deprivation, and put them on a t-shirt.

Previously, this was a weekly gag. But as we move into summer, pressure of work is sitting on both of our shoulders like a shit boulder. So, for a while, we’re shifting from TOTW to T-Shirt Of The Month. Until I either run out of dumb ideas or Ariana’s brain explodes.

So, at the top of the month, I’ll post the new shirt here, and you can peer at it more at http://www.cafepress.com/electrophonic.

Ariana originally wouldn’t show me this, based on something I said on Twitter, as she thought I’d have her sectioned. I personally think it’s a work of genius.

I present to you T-Shirt Of The Month #003: THE TWEET OF TWITHULHU:

the tweet of twithulhu

We also now offer, at the same link, a great many perennial "legacy" items, which will be added to on a largely random basis. For instance:


Thank you for your kind attention.

  7. I so want a mug like this !

  8. Ia! Ia! Cthulhu f’tagn!

  9. Now need to get my science gangster brother this mug. It would be a great compliment to the barbecue apron he needs…

    Me, on the other hand, I could be a Twithulu girl… No one I went to school with would be surprised to find me in league with an Eldritch horror…

  10. I am strangely aroused.

    Thank you, Mr. Ellis. You have brought me to new lows.

    Or maybe it’s the combination of cheap wine and fruit snacks. Yum.

  11. The first thing I did when I saw the design was to count the z’s to make sure the tweet didn’t go over the 140 character limit. I have no life.

  12. This is the funniest thing I’ve ever seen xD
    Ia Ia Twithulu fhtagn! Priceless!
    Got to have this one :)

  13. […] Ellis has decided to offer a t-shirt of the month via Cafe Press, his offering for July, this magnificently eldritch […]

  14. Other commenters have said much more clever things than I could have, so I’ll just give you props for the superbly creative twithulu graphic.

  15. Game: Tweet TWITHULHU at friend. They reply TWITHULHU FHTAGN. You reply Zzzz. If either of you tweets something else before the reply then the other one gets a point.

  16. Wait… That’s clearly too many z’s for the character limit… ;)

  17. Totally awesome… Must get one…
