RECOMMEND T-REX TO... THE INTERNET:
What are the haps my friends


February 22nd, 2008: A few people emailed me about Jess Fink's art theft story (see below!) saying that yeah, it looked bad, but what about Natalie Dee's comic here? I think that's actually a good example of an important difference. Natalie and Jess both came up with the idea of "soap talking about washing butts", and I think there's room on the planet for two riffs on that idea.

That's different from Hot Topic's shirt, which is both the same idea and the same realization of the idea: same soap, same improbable colour, same position, same body. One is two people thinking in parallel lines, while the other is one person copying another.

To make sure the best gifts ever in time get to you when you want them, here are the HOLIDAY SHIPPING DEADLINES. Orders placed before these dates will get to you in time for Christmas!

December 1st-4th: All shipping methods except U.S.P.S. First-Class Package International Service™ are safe.
December 5th: International orders made not selecting U.S.P.S. Priority Mail Express International™ shipping will likely arrive in January.
December 10th: USPS FIRST CLASS and STANDARD may not make it in time and neither will USPS EXPRESS MAIL INTERNATIONAL.
December 14th: ALMOST NOTHING IS SAFE. USPS EXPRESS is the only safe USPS option. For FEDEX HOME/GROUND shipping it depends on where you are: refer to this map!
December 17th: A CHRISTMAS MIRACLE (IF THINGS PLACED ON OR AFTER THIS DATE ARRIVE BY THE 24TH, THAT IS)

One year ago today: Did you know, dear friends, that a "royal flush" can beat a "two of a kind" on the strength of the cards alone?
