I've always hoped that my witty repartee here would somehow be translated through and artists and scholars from around the world would be able to see through my petty grammatical mistakes and complete lack of vocabulary and detect my joie de' vivre and empirical views of the world around me. Either that or they would threaten to sue me.

Well good people, my ship has finally come in. Many of you may recall me jokingly making a Cafepress T-Shirt some number of months ago based on the all too famous "Nice T-Shirt" comic over at the Perry Bible Fellowship. Well I recently received a rather litigious email from the "Content Usage Associate" over at Cafepress informing me that one Mr. Nicholas Gurewitch has had enough of me riding his coat tails and that my thievery has not gone unnoticed, and that packs of rabid, blood thirsty lawyers would soon be at my front door demanding my very soul. Lo! There will be the gnashing of teeth and the crying of babes!

Using my keen powers of deduction I surmised that I may be able to minimize any and all damage by going straight to the source, which would be Nicky Gurewitch in this case, and throwing myself at his mercy, capitulating in total and begging for forgiveness. It went a little something like this:

Dear Mr. Gurewitch,

Hello. I received an email from Cafe Press about having your image (the Unicorn Power design) on a t-shirt. I would just like to email you and apologize, as I never meant any harm by it. It was put up there as a goof and an inside joke between me and a few friends of mine that enjoy your comic. I never made any money off of it and never intended to. Again I apologize for any harm.

Sincerely,
Cools McGee
(except I actually put my name. Cools McGee is just what I call myself in order to boost my self esteem. Stop judging me.)

After sending it, I realized I probably should have put something in there about kneeling in broken glass and other forms of self-flagellation, but much to my surprise I received a reply in a matter of minutes:

Brent!

Cafe Press does not exactly pull in big bucks for its participants, I realize. I felt like a jerk busting up the Unicorn love there. I could tell from the start that it was an affectionate homage to the comic, but I couldn't figure out how to contact you. I've taken steps towards getting some nice Unicorn shirts professionally done, and I was hoping to eliminate confusion.

So, not only does it seem like I'm off the hook, but it also appears like we can all look forward to a professionally done, officially sanctioned Unicorn Power T-Shirt, of which I will purchase many in order to complete my penance. Man, the internet kicks ass.
