If it’s underwear, it must be Itchy

Doris,

As my blog looks set to celebrate 50,000 hits, and yours 25,000 (comparisons–always odious), I wonder if we should start to think about incentive schemes to encourage new readers–and little somethings to reward our loyal fans?

You presumably are in constant contact with those who employ nimble-fingered children to sew for 20 hours a day in the far east–oops sorry, suppliers of fine cotton goods to the Western World–and I already have some great ideas for t-shirts.

I kissed the Blarney Crone is bound to be a best seller and I’ve cracked Doris Brazil would be popular too. Flo: Just Say No may have possibilities and I’ve found Appleton Marsh or I (heart) Itchy Ankle could also have a role to play.  Of course we might want to start more modestly with bumper stickers. If only you’d backed my twinning idea, those could really be a very attractive opportunity to showcase both our towns together…

Or what about novelty underwear? Wouldn’t it be great if instead of saying “Marksies” or “Jockeys” people referenced “Doris” down below? As in: ” I only ever wear Doris next to my skin” Or started to talk about their “Itchies”? I think it could be big.

 Anyhow, give it some thought, and let me know where you come out, so to speak.

Best, Blabs

    ooh–let’s have

    Sex, Drugs and Ginger Nuts

    At last, a t-shirt I’d be truly proud to call my own.
