Makes me wonder if photoshop (or other image editors) has a spell check when laying in text . . .



Yes, both Photoshop and Illustrator have spell check functions, you just have to be awake enough when making your entry to remember to use them ;) (which, obviously, I wasn't)

But I do still have others look at my entries, sometimes I type in the wrong words, in the wrong order, whatever.

2nd (x6), 3rd (x2), HM (x4), CCC (x1)... still in need of a top chop!

Great job all you winners. Congrats KMA2, you had a great 1st place and you snagged an HM too!

Just realized I probably should have done the Swiss Alps instead. That would have made more sense

Not true. Just no public displays of affection. They're a straight-laced bunch up there in St. Louie. Can't be seen promoting unnatural acts. In public. What would the Viccar say?

Don't be so hard on yourself. Just because you posted twice, misspelled a few words, made up a few more, used punctuation and capitalization improperly, and said "thats chill" [sic] doesn't make you...

...Um, wait a sec...

Not to come to Codyy's defense ... well, yea, okay I am, but according to the Urban Dictionary the word "stoopit" is legit ... if of course Codyy is from a real urban area.

The most salient features of specific places are their geography and their name. A map already depicts a place's geography, so depicting its name is the logical choice.

If take New Jersy... and turn it into a shirt.. or "jersey" it doesn't have anything to do with New Jersey.. other than the name.



Uh, right, so it doesn't have anything to do with New Jersey other than the single most identifiable thing about New Jersey.

I don't know.. i thought there were a lot of good entries.. that stuck to the rules... and didn't even get HM's...



These entries stuck to the rules.

there are some good chops in there despite the lack of attention to the rules



Sour grapes, methinks.

You think that New Jersey got its name because P. Diddy settled here from Blingland and decided to name it after his wardrobe? Its name comes from the Isle of Jersey in the Channel Isles in England.

And the single most identifiable thing about New Jersey isn't jerseys. It's the smell.

(I'm from there, I should know!)

No, and I can't imagine why you would think I did; I certainly didn't say anything that implied that the name came from the clothing. But the clothing does relate to an essential feature of the place (viz., its name), just as the rules call for.

Its name comes from the Isle of Jersey in the Channel Isles in England.



Duh, but this has no bearing on what I wrote, other than that the name of the clothing item in fact comes from the name of the isle from which the name of the state comes. Sounds like a relationship to me.

I'm surprised the Lincoln and Area 51 ones didn't even get HMs...

And the LORD said unto the chicken: "Go ye forth, and cross the road". And the chicken did go forth to cross the road, and there was much rejoicing.

but that's $40 australian... so i think it would be dropped to $30 american.

still pretty pricey considering i could make that same t-shirt for $5 with a trip to Hobby Lobby (including the gas money it takes to get there and back).
