    Funny.

    I missed the context of the lamb comment - can anyone shed light?

    I would rather just have a t-shirt that's only available to Styleforum members with a design that I would actually wear once a week.
    Very subtle marketing. I wouldn't wear any of the shirts mentioned so far. Some are funny, and admirable efforts, but pretty unwearable. Not only are they inside, but there's no way of explaining them properly to anyone, and I just can't see any positive effect of wearing them. Not that that's the point of clothing, but that's another discussion. Random guy/girl: "Hey, interesting shirt. What's 'the lamb'?" SF Member:"Uh, nothing." RG: "Cmon, does it mean something?" SFM: "Uh, the lamb... of... God?" RG: "Oh..." SFM: "No, kidding, it's just an inside joke." RG: "Oh..." SFM: "Between me and my internet friends." RG: "Oh..." SFM: "..." RG: "..."
    Or it could go like this: Random guy/girl: "Hey, interesting shirt. What's 'the lamb'?" SF Member: "It's just an inside joke." RG: "Oh..." SFM: "Between me and my internet friends." RG: "Oh...ok" Much better, no? It's all in how you answer their question. Jon.

    Brown T-shirt with "Farmer" across front in all caps. On back, in smaller lowercase, "You Like it the Lamb?"

    Why don't we get Brian to design a graphic? That'd be a lot cooler than any inside joke.

    I think it would be really hard to get everyone to agree on something. Obviously some people like the humor statements and others don't. I wouldn't mind making a design if there were some really cool ideas floating around, but I also don't want to go through 10 stages of critiques of my artwork and design from people that I don't really know.

    Honestly though, what is "I like it the lamb?"

    Does a styleForum t-shirt imply that your clothes are picked out by your internet friends?

    While this is a little offtopic:

    Horace, why are you holding your arms out in that picture? Are you holding an invisible box or something? I hope you don't use that picture for online dating services.

    I was thinking of just that cool crest the guy had as his avatar with something about liking it the lamb underneath. I wear and say nonsensical stuff all the time. If someone asks, just say "don't worry about it." That shuts them up.

    I believe that's actually a photo of Dr. Bresch, who posted a series of "today's outfit" photos on AAAC, in rigidly upright posture that to some people resembled action figure poses.

    If you and/or other designers could post a few possible images, the members could vote on them. Challenging as it might be, perhaps we could agree not to critique/modify/micromanage the images.

    I like it the lamb was not really that funny when it happened -but became a very funny after the fact, like Will Farrell in SNL.  

    Yes, the link is correct.  Suspiciously shortly after the Styleman incarnation of Kalra was banned, a "Saudi' troll showed up.  one of his innocuous posts was the "You like it the lamb" thing.  It was more or less forgotten about for a while. Then j. posted a picture (with a blurred out face) of himself in his new Vanson jacket. I posted saying that he looke like a member of a boy band, and dared him to ban me, at which point he posted back saying I was banned, and how did I like it the lamb now? The whole thing was taken to new heights (or lows, more likely) by Tokyo, who asked the question more than just once. And that, my friends, is the humble provenance of "You like it the lamb?"

    How about a shirt for our Australian members:

    You like it the mid-stream piss?

    Jon.
