And the award goes to...

No, no, we weren’t arrested or had to go into hiding. In case you were wondering where did we disappear to. 

We have been busy. And have been entertained. We had a supposed man-in-white write to us appreciating our sense of humour – we smelled a rat when he started getting logical with our silly requests and boy, did we have some. Strange fella. Made us giggle with his emails.

Anyhoo, the cooked up story about the delay in announcing our Presidential Tee winner is that we were waiting for Parliament to open.

The real story is a combination of us wanting to announce the tees at a play called When Tan meets Tan, inspired by the presidential elections, which has now been postponed and...well, our sheer slackness. Come on, not much has been happening since the Elections so it’s been hard getting ‘inspired’. 

Anyhoo (for the second time), the winning Presidential Tee entry by unanimous vote is...drum roll please...ta-dah.


The winner gets $250. Apologies for the delay. Politics is back to its boring best in Singapore once again. Peace.

Presidential results are out! But the voting continues.

Just when we thought the Presidential Elections was such a let down after GE 2011, along came Results Day (and Night) to prove us wrong.

Tan Kin Lian blinked away $48,000. Tan Jee Say beamed away like a true vote spoiler. Tan Cheng Bock smiled too soon. Tony Tan smiled like he knew he had won but was doomed. And we received some cool entries for our Presidential tee-shirt contest.

Okay, in the first place we didn’t expect many entries (we did say the subject matter was boring before Results Day) but we got enough to put a smile on our faces.

These are the shortlisted five.

An enthusiastic soul volunteered his basic design skills so the lines could have some visual context. We feel they are funny and self-explanatory.

Have a read, have a laugh and email us at dontquoteme.sales@gmail.com if you feel any one particular tee rubbed you the right way.

It’s a first past the post system, like our nation’s. And we don’t care if the bulk of you d
on’t like the winner ;)


Shortlisted Entry #1
Entrant’s explanation: I swear I heard it all through Sunday (after results day).

Shortlisted Entry #2

Entrant’s explanation: Inspired by BreadTalk’s ‘Buy 3 Tans and get 1 free’ promotion.

Shortlisted Entry #3
Entrant’s explanation: Did anyone see how TKL failed to connect a High-five with a supporter on results night?

Shortlisted Entry #4
Entrant’s explanation: TT better not make any big public appearances too soon.

Shortlisted Entry #5
Entrant’s explanation: What a 35.1% President looks like.

Presidential Contest!

Okay, so our fans (yes, more than one) have been bugging us on why we haven’t done a Presidential tee yet. The reason is simple. After the fun and excitement of GE 2011, the Presidential Elections has been a real snooze fest.

Honestly, who cares if whose son was a white horse or who has to go to Batam to prove his international relations credentials etc We would rather focus on making curry for the too many PRC in our GRC.

BUT if you feel you have it in you to come up with the perfect, most hilarious, ironical, even cynical tee shirt line about the Presidential Elections, please send us your thoughts. Winning entry gets 
$250 cash and we may even get it done as a limited edition tee. Howzaboutat?

Send your funny lines to dontquoteme.sales@gmail.com 
by 31 Aug and have some fun.

Just don’t say ‘
Tan Tan, I will do it tomorrow’ coz then you will forget and you won’t get a crack at the $250 cash!

Presidential Election

The Straits Times, 12 August 2011


One thing’s for sure. Our next President will be a ‘Tan’. Lord forbid if it was a ‘Tin’. Hey, there’s a tee-shirt idea in there somewhere...

GE 2011

Our first series of tee shirts mark THE event of 2011, the Singapore General Elections.

No one (especially all the useless fence sitting, political pundits and columnists) would have guessed what a watershed event the GE 2011 would be.

This time, Singaporeans did not drink the water when led to the well. This time, Singaporeans did not go with the flow. This time, Singaporeans wanted accountability before they crossed the bridge.

We heard Singaporeans online, at rallies, at coffee shops and eventually on polling day. These tee shirts are our summation of GE 2011.

We call them the ‘I voted for the Opposition’ series because Singaporeans being Singaporeans would gladly say that they were rooting for the Opposition AFTER the fact ;)

Go on. Buy it for a laugh.

Buy it for someone who was passionate about election stuff.

Repent

The first big body blow to the PAP was self-inflicted. MM said that the people of Aljunied GRC would have five years to repent if they voted for the Opposition. Guess they’d rather find out for themselves.

PRC in my GRC

Foreign Talent was a thorny issue all through the elections. And as much as there are plenty of useless angmohs everywhere in Singapore, PRCs were seen as a major problem. By local Chinese especially.

Non resident Indians (NRIs) are intolerable

Take all the negative sentiments against PRCs, multiply it by ten and you’ll have the collective distaste for Non Resident Indians (NRIs) here in Singapore. These people are serious social misfits!

When there were rumours aplenty about when elections would be, there wasn’t much of an anti-PAP sentiment on the ground. Oh, how quickly that turned when the Election dates were announced.

Don't Quote Me


Tee shirts are the walking billboards of society.

They express an inner attitude, ranging from arrogance to irreverence to sometimes, sheer indulgence.

Tee shirts also showcase a collective mood and feel of people at a particular point in time, be they the majority, minority, the rebel rousers or quite often, the disenfranchised.

Don’t Quote Me, the latest tee-shirt label to join the millions of other tee shirt labels (cough), will hold true to the form and function of tee shirts as walking billboards. In rich irony, of course, in keeping with the label.

We will crystallize what is said (even if it is in hush tones) and more importantly, what is felt on the ground. In concise words. In creative prints.

You can buy into us. You can bitch about us. You best not ignore us.
