last year for making a small run of parody “Skoot and Destroy” patches to
promote my dorky scootering website/scooter racing team.

obstinate idiot and chucked the unsold patches in the trash. I’d only sold
about ten of them, and given a few away to friends, so it was a net loss of
$150. Big deal. If I didn’t have to read another of Ed’s moral high-horse
emails about “integrity” and “ripping off an artist,” it was worth it.

Jack Daniels skateboard parodies, not to mention the “Older…Bud Weiser”
Gang Green ads in Thrasher in the 80s.
