Walking the line


I have never shied away from approaching the line of poor taste in my blog (or now my highly lucrative storefront that I am the only one who buys things from).  Now some might think it is disrespectful to Johnny Cash to suggest his name be associated with a Porta Potty that doubles as an ATM. But I think it is just potentially a good business idea.

Think about it. Rather than standing out in the elements at a cash machine worrying about criminal elements sneaking up behind you and stealing your pin or your wallet, wouldn't you rather be sitting down in a comfortable porta potty withdrawing cash and doing your business (if you catch my drift). And associating Johnny Cash's name with the product is just a good marketing ploy.

Personally I think Johnny Cash sang like shit (and I mean that in the most respectful manner) and it seems appropriate that people could sit in the John and get some cash. 

But I am too clever by half as I've been told and never forgotten.

As for poor taste, yes, I uploaded a t-shirt design yesterday of an electric chair with a whoopee cushion on it with the phrase, "Die Laughing." 

How was I supposed to know that Alabama was executing someone on the same day using Nitrogen. It was an honest mistake. It's not that I posted it on Twitter X with hashtags #deathpenalty #whoopee cushion.  I'll wait a few weeks (or days) until the controversy dies down. Trending topics on social media blip in and out all of the time.

And it wasn't intended to be in poor taste. Now putting the electric chair in the Jonnie Cash porta potty might have been in poor taste.  Though funny (note to self: t-shirt showing an electric chair in a Jonnie Cash porta potty with the caption, "You'll be shocked what you can do in this crapper."

You just have to have a sense of humor about these things.
