Rejected Bootleg T-Shirt Design

I like the idea that there's some sort of governing body that controls which bootleg T-shirts get made. Also they have standards that they uphold.

"I ain't putting the okay on that one. Goes too far Pete, goes a little too far. Keep working on the naked chick in front of the Confederate Flag with pot leafs covering her junk though. Senior Week is coming up and we've got to have this shit ready!"

I was going to try to write "Bootled T-Shirt Design #947251" and "Rejected" in Korean but I figured it'd be a joke too far. I was already stretching things with that big stamp down there.

So anyway the the specific thing that inspired this was the early 90s phenomenon of "Black Bart" shirts. I have seen black versions of the South Park Kids on a t-shirt saying "Dang, they killed Kenny", I have seen a Rasta Peter Griffin, but NOTHING compares to the deluge of bootleg black Simpsons shirts that were fucking everywhere when I was a kid. Maybe it was just Baltimore but somehow I doubt it.

Here's a choice selection of what I culled from the internet:

I would do terrible, terrible things for someone who agrees to send me an authentic Black Bart. I may be contacted through this blog post.
