Skeptical Stocking Stuffers

Yesterday on the Friday Funny – the new and improved 4 legged AGW table thread, there was quite a bit of interest in getting T-Shirts of Josh’s latest CAGW cartoon, the “No Shoogle 4 legged CAGW Table” (shoogly means wobbly in the UK). So I asked Josh, and he graciously agreed to license the design to WUWT so we could offer some T-Shirts, mugs, and other assorted brick-a-brack, just for fun.

I also added a second design (of my own) that some long time readers may remember:

I regret that CafePress would not let me put something on the back as well, they are apparently limited to the front side only, and side by side of this design is the best I could do:

It looks good on the mug:

You can get these on different colors of shirts, different styles, plus other items; like tote bags, water bottles, clocks, even a BBQing/cooking apron!

Josh gets a commission on each sale, so here’s your chance to annoy your friends and support his work. I can easily add other designs, so I can accept “some” requests.

As for the detractors of this blog who feel left out because there’s no fun merchandise for you, sorry, tough noogies.

Order your favorite fun stuff here: http://www.cafepress.com/WattsUpWithThat The shop allows you to choose what design you want on what item and what size in men or women’s sizes.

If you don’t want one for yourself, I hear Jim Hansen, Gavin, Joe Romm, and some other friends of ours are getting coal this year, so they might like one of these better.

============

UPDATE: Commenter James Barker complained of a lack of a hockey stick. So, here ya go!

Just FYI, if anyone wants to send one to Jim or Gavin at GISS, the address is here on the lower right side of the page.

    What, no hockey sticks??? WUWT?

    REPLY: As we all know, they aren’t practical, so no need to offer them, but that reminds me…check back in a half hour or so – Anthony

    The Shoogle design has a hockey stick, James… admittedly rather small, but you can annoy your CAGW friends even more by making a “Where’s Waldo” experience out of it.

  4. Theo Goodwin says:

    I cannot have one of these items, unless I store it in a secret vault like Silas Marner. I work for a college. I cannot trust my close friends, as I have discovered. Living in the world of PC is like living in Soviet Russia under the threat of institutionalization for bad dogma. Those of you who can wear the T-shirts, get them and wear them with the greatest gusto and joy.

  5. Brian H says:

    I have a malformed mental image of a hockey stick with a shaft that follows the actual temperature pattern, being held by a befuddled guy in full gear trying to figger out how to hold it …

    Ohhhh …. I’m gonna get me some of those as a belated Chanukah gift to myself! … And speaking of “gifts” …. Here’s a virtual gift from Peter B. and me to all of you … You may want to “open” it here.

  9. Dave F says:

    Thank you for your input Mr. Baltutis. Sometimes I need to get a better grip on that myself, lol.

    How long are these going to be around?

  10. a jones says:

    And what about us poor UK residents? I understand the suppliers have a UK outlet but they are not offering these items at moment. No doubt they could.

    And then I should able to buy some. No point in trying to order from the USA this close to Xmas.

    Kindest Regards

    REPLY: For the UK, Josh has a store set up here: http://www.cafepress.co.uk/cartoonsbyjosh

    For the USA, use mine.

    HO-HO-HO!!! Thanks, Guys!!! Now, here’s hopin’ they’ll be able to ship
    internationally………’cause ~ if not……….my ‘not so skeptical’ (but, he’s only 25, so I’m giving him a bit more time…) is gonna be receiving them at his home in Connecticut…!!!

    And……. he has already ‘freaked out’ this week, ’cause Ian and I bid to $2,500
    for that upillar.com rooster of Beck’s!!! (It made $3,200 ~ so, it shows ya how the symbol of American Freedom can go from a turkey (Franklin’s idea) to a bald eagle (but, I wasn’t allowed to eat their eggs while others can still abort humans… so, I figured THAT was passe in the 90’s…) to a ROOSTER, of all things ~ symbolizing that America and all of the world…….is WAKING UP to a gloriously NEW (ahum… NON-PROGRESSIVE MORNING!) ((Amen, YAHOO comes to mind.))

    I’m ‘off’ to this new site where I’ll be able to participate in this scientifically inspired
    brilliance! (Hey…….tell me when Chris Monckton starts his school of ‘Higher Learning’, okay? I wanna be in a front seat when he does!)

    HA-HA-HAAA ~ Ho – Ho ~ Ho ~ and now I even learned a new word, thanks to Anthony……….SHOOGLY, too!!! How can I BEGIN to Thank You, Guys???!!! Oh, yeah…….spending some hard-earned cash would be ‘cool’………gotta go place our order!

    Merriest of Christmases, to you blokes…

    Good move Anthony, and I hope it works out well. I got a couple of T shirts from Josh last week on a super quick turnaround so I recommend people in the UK to deal with Josh direct. Email him via his website for designs not at cafepress.co.uk.

    Now I’m going to need one of these table t shirts too!

  13. David Davidovics says:

    Any plans for bumper stickers?

    REPLY: Cartoons are not really visible on bumper stickers…and if they are…you are WAY TOO CLOSE

    ;-)

  14. Keith W. says:

    But Anthony, some of us put bumper stickers on things other than our car bumpers. I’ve put a few on laptops, and other devices. Getting things in the public view helps spread the word.

  15. a jones says:

    Anthony.

    Didn’t realise that. Thanx

    Kindest Regards.

  16. Jenn Oates says:

    I’m feeling remarkably in the Christmas spirit right now. :)

  17. Bumper stickers here, I designed lots of them a while back, hope the links still work!

  20. Ben Hillicoss says:

    Shoogly = CAGW

    Under shoogly in the dictionary it says: climate models are shoogly…way shoogly

    The peer-review process has become a bit…shoogly

    If you are a climate scientist at the CRU and asked a question about your data do you

    shoogle a bit?? give a shoogly response?? or just shoogle down the hall way??

    still laughing at the toon Josh

    I’ll take a T(able)-Shirt with Smokey’s most excellent comment from another thread here at WUWT printed along the bottom:

    Smokey says:
    December 9, 2010 at 6:20 pm:

    “The only effect that can be definitively connected with the increase in CO2 is rising agricultural production.”

    Priceless!

  23. Mike McMillan says:

    Hilary Ostrov and Peter B have done a tremendous job of hyperlinking the IPCC 2007 report and weeding out the phoney-baloney-Sunday-supplement-quality references. A valuable resource.
    Thanks hro001 for posting a link to it.

    I understand as I work in a similar environment, but at least not in a science department, so my arts colleagues are merely bemused by my periodic frothings at the mouth. I know I’ve nearly made one convert in the philosophy department, and will flaunt the “shoogle” mug in his presence ( The mug’s definitely going to the office). The T’s I just bought will remain hidden – until the ice melts and winter layers can be peeled off, or until I deliver my first series of lectures devoted to the issue of the perversion of science by scientists’ quest for approbation, filthy lucre and a fat c.v.

    In fact, I wish you could think up a funny cartoon for “follow the money”, Josh.

    Thanks for responding so quickly to the T-shirt demand, Anthony, and thanks, Josh, for the many LOLs. I’m going to enjoy these prezzies.

  25. JER0ME says:

    Well, Josh’s own area does not have these, nor his one in Oz.

    Also, when I go to create a custom shirt, I can put a different pic on the back.

    Can I pay Josh for the use of these images in order to make my own shirts for family & friends?

    How about Hansen in a DeLorean going back in time and pulling the temperatures from the past down / cooler?

    Would it be posible to have a negative version in a black t-shirt? Something like this:

  28. xyzlatin says:

    I checked the cafepress site and the designs can be done in bumper stickers, baseball caps, water bottles, bags, bibs, etc and can be in a variety of colours and some two coloured ones.

    “……I hear Jim Hansen, Gavin, Joe Romm, and some other friends of ours are getting coal this year,…..
    I was told as a child that if I wasn’t a good boy through the year all I’d get for Christmas was a lump of coal. Highly appropriate.

  30. David Waring says:

    Umm, “shoogle” is most definitely not in general use throughout the UK. It will be comprehended in parts of Scotland, but not universally there either.

    REPLY: As we all know, they aren’t practical, so no need to offer them, but that reminds me…check back in a half hour or so – Anthony

    OK, normal ones aren’t practical – but what about a really weak and flimsy lightweight hockey stick – particularly one made from Bristlecone pine, full of holes, broken, and held together with fudge? And don’t tell me it’d never sell – I hear a certain Michael Mann has done a roaring trade in this item and that every time a new version comes out hundreds of Real Climate readers buy it.

  32. Pat Heuvel says:

    I think an opportunity’s been missed here – how about a “global warming jumper” (= sweater for you non-Aussies)?

  33. Beth Cooper says:

    Lucy Skywalker Car Bumper Stickers to spread the word.
    Thanx Lucy, just what I wanted for myself and others!

  34. Dave B says:

    “Shoogly” is Glasgow “patter” for loose or wobbly.

    Quote: “yer jaiket’s on a shoogly nail”. The literal meaning is, of course, that the nail on which the person is accustomed to hang his jacket has become loose and the next time he or she tries to hang up said jacket it may, along with the nail, fall to the floor: Late again, eh? You better screw the nut, sonny boy, cause yer jaiket’s on a shoogly nail’. ”

    We often use it to describe politicians whose days in office are clearly numbered and it is often used in that context elsewhere in Scotland. It was even used a while back in the Westminster parliament to describe the dying embers of Tony Blair’s premiership.

    So, as you may guess, I’ll be buying one o’ thae mugs, so I will.

  35. Ric Werme says:

    What I’d really like to see is a coffee mug with Basil Copeland’s wavelet analysis of sunspot numbers from http://wattsupwiththat.com/2008/09/22/new-cycle-24-sunspot/

    And I’ve wanted it for more than two years.

  36. Smokey says:

    Ric Werme,

    If I’m not mistaken, Zazzle will produce your design at your request.

    > Ric Werme,

    > If I’m not mistaken, Zazzle will produce your design at your request.

    I looked into some of the one-off vendors with an idea of one for me and one for Anthony, but between time and some changes to the image, and what not it never happened.

  38. Wilson Flood says:

    Shoogly is not known in England. It is a Scottish word widely understood to mean shaky or wobbly or unstable. Like the Greeks, the Scots have a word for it. There is not an English equivalent for “scunner”. The use of shoogly suggests the origins of Josh.

  39. Gary says:

    What? No Screeching Mercury Monkeys?

  40. Disko Troop says:

    Have to confirm what Wilson Flood says. Shoogly is Glasgow dialect and no one in England will ever have heard of the word!
    We really do need these prints on thermal shirts, socks, ear muffs etc because we have globally warmed to minus twenty here, the coldest temps since records began (the records pre Hansen,Jones etc that is)

  41. Curtis says:

    How about,

    “Hey Al, How about my carbon footprint up your …?”
