Fairy Godfather


I'll post this design here because I figure it is only a matter of time before the Intellectual Property Police (or the IPP for those of you who crave acronyms) swoop in and complain that I am infringing upon Marlon Brando's or Francis Ford Coppola's Godfather Intellectual Property. To which I would like to reply, "I didn't see the no trespassing sign."

In all fairness, Art AI gave me a more generic Vito Corleone but I wanted someone who looked like Don Corleone and not Don Pardo. Art AI created the Fair Godfather title that really looks like the Godfather movie title all on its artificial intelligence self. 

I think it is hilarious myself. But lawyers have no sense of humor.

Art AI seemed to struggle with my design suggestions today. Maybe it was the topics I chose. 

I want to go on record that this design looks almost nothing like the one Art AI gave me. I asked for a balloon animal made out of inflated condoms with reservoir tips. It gave me something that looked more like a balloon float in the Macy Thanksgiving Day Parade. So I borrowed the background and the title and pieced together the Trojan Horse I pictured.  I am pretty frickin' proud of it too.

Though it strikes me that if the Godfather people come after me the Trojan Horses head may end up on my pillow some night.

Still, wouldn't it be great to hire a killer clown for a bachelor's party and have him create balloon animals with inflated condoms?

A clown like this perhaps:

 This is pretty esoteric. It is supposed to be a cross between Bozo the Clown and Zippy the Pinhead. Art AI interpreted "Pinhead" to be a clown with actual pins sticking out of his head. The "Hey kids, are we fun yet" is a combination of Bozo's catchphrase "Hey kids, let's have some fun!" (which is kind of creepy in itself) and Zippy the Pinheads catchphrase "Are we having fun yet?"

I seriously doubt if anyone who hasn't read this post will have clue what I was going for with Zippo the Clownhead. The lighter is an homage to Zippo lighters.

Ironically I read a portion of an article on Apple News today about how traumatic it is for people to set themselves on fire to protest things. The article was written by a guy whose mother set herself on fire in her kitchen when he was a little kid and how it still bothers him

I wanted to write a comment on the article to the effect of, "Don't get all fired up over it."

I have to say that I am pretty disappointed in the quality of the articles Apple News showcases for the $12 a month I shell out to participate in their largely click-bait journalism. First most of the articles are about Donald Trump and I am pretty sick of reading about his latest bout of narcolepsy and flatulence in the courtroom. 

I wouldn't mind reading an article about him setting himself on fire, perhaps in an effort to light up his farts with a Zippo lighter and then falling asleep.

That's clickbait I could wrap my brain around.

Oh well:

I may just give up writing and speak in punny t-shirt designs from now on.
