For civility's sake, let's change "Don't Tread on Me"... Part 2.

Chip Ahoy responds to my request for a redesigned Gadsden flag:

"OH HAI" is an instant classic. ;)

I hope chip has the copyright worked out.

This could be the next 'Althouse studying' image, as it takes over the tubes.

Especially, keep your eye on Shepard Fairey.

Instant classics, when opporunity and talent meet.

When will the "Mind the Ophedia" bumper stickers be available? I want twelve!

Eric said...

Thanks for giving me an idea.

Deb said...

Bumper stickers, T-shirts: Cafe Press!

Don't Tread on Me Bob!

Just very normal, non-partisan, fiscally concerned, average citizens worried about spending levels.

Phil 3:14 said...

Please clue me in and explain the first two.

garage mahal said...

I see Althouse just won't let that post through. Treading.

pst314 said...

Shouldn't the snake's rattles be replaced with a white flag?

MadisonMan said...

Phil Pi: To understand Oh Hai, you have to appreciated the lolcats website.

edutcher said...

I was wondering if those were Chip's or just a link to someone else's work.

Nicely done.

traditionalguy said...

The first one wins. The removal of the fangs is the key. After that, rattle all you want.

Birkel said...

I know everybody is a critic and all that. Yet I must point out that last one might miss the point of Althouse's exercise.

Birkel said...

I forgot my /sarcasm tag. Whoops.

Paul Brinkley said...

The "OH HAI" one needs to be on every howitzer in the US arsenal.

Dear Sir/Madam,

For civility's sake, lets just leave the flag as it is.

Thank you.

Regards,

Don't Tread

wv - elogical

MadMan;
Thanks.

And I'd love so say this is the reason I didn't get the second one but anyway...

it's Ophidia

We're having an epidemic of break-ins in our neighborhood (4 this week alone) - I think I'm putting the last one on my front door. That way they'll know what's about to happen to them if they kick the door in...

deborah said...

lol I vote for number four.

Lem said...

Isn't it interesting how a white flag has no labels?

Chip Ahoy said...

Phil, yes of course you are right. Here, go ahead and borrow my tags.

It is the snake doing the talking and it's understood snakes have no respect for proper spelling. The snake is warning about stepping in accordance with the newest attempt at controlling language and being nice about it. Foot=ped. The snake felt it necessary to retain the 'h'. Plus they're terrible with aspirated bilabial plosives.

The last flag is intentionally different. It's showing what a Gadsden would look like if the charges already leveled against Palin, Beck, Tea Partiers, ets. were anything other than desperate.

Phil 3:14 said...

I hope you all realize that the Gadsen flag is against God's will:

So the LORD God said to the serpent, “Because you have done this,

“Cursed are you above all livestock
and all wild animals!
You will crawl on your belly
and you will eat dust
all the days of your life.
And I will put enmity
between you and the woman,
and between your offspring and hers;
he will crush your head,
and you will strike his heel
.”

Genesis 3:14-15

So why all the anti-Judeo-Christian hate around here!

(this is some sort of Satan worship thing isn't it.)

It needs tiny Sarah Palin glasses and a wig. ;)

My favorite, BTW, is the third. The implied threat masked with a disarming smile.

Very funny. Good job.

traditionalguy said...

This will teach Palin and her Tea Partiers...burning the Reichstag is never permitted.

Alert the media, pond scum can type!

BJM;
I'm not sure I understand your reply but hopefully your sarcasm-o-meter was working as you read my previous post.
