Rejected T-shirt ideas: Pawned

This latest offering in the rejected t-shirt line will never appear at retail. The subtle, yet effective, parallels drawn between the wizard's game of chess and a popular term in nerdy gaming dialogue are too far outside the realms of normal folks' comprehension.

Rather than grasp the clever (oh-so-clever) play on words and imagery, the average viewer would instead assume the shirt had something to do with the selling one's goods to a man stationed behind a fenced-in register for a fraction of what said goods are actually worth.

Alas, staticechoes' genius is once again its own worst enemy.
