    Could do a redneck one!

    With a picture of a heart and then it says.
    My Oil Pump is out but I'm still racin' for points!

    "Put that wand near me and I'll show you how shocking it can be!"

    Or a shirt with a defib pic on it and then it says
    "Don't tase me Bro!"

    " I can be very shocking at times"

    "Wanna touch my defibrillator"
    (My sick friends at work always want to feel what it's like)

    See if I can think of some more!

    OK so maybe nobody thinks "recovery wear" is fashionable???

    How about scar humor?


    "Scars are tattoos with a story"

    "This scar cost $10,000. per inch"

    "Show me yours, I'll show you mine"

    Great ideas!


    Anybody got any good ones for pre or post surgery "recovery wear"?

    You know how you felt before and right after. Lets get some ideas that can add a bit of twisted humor to a grim situation. Could make for a great gift to help ease someone thru the scary stuff.

    "you should see me on a bad day"

    "I used to think I was invincible"

    " Ta Da!"

    Rebuilt pump, hot wired and new valves
    should go for another 100,000 miles

    No that's not a scar ~ it's a life line.

    I beat Darwin ~ I survived

    They just keep getting cheesier

    Hi everyone, here are some of my brain-storming ideas to add to the list!

    HCM'ers have the biggest hearts/big hearts

    HCM'ers open their hearts to others

    HCM is not for the faint-hearted

    HCm'ers have thick hearts, smart brains and good looks...

    HCM'ers know that it's not the size of the man that matters but the size of the heart

    HCM...go with all your heart!

    Bye for now...Alison, Auckland, NZ

    That's a great one Rhoda, and in a similar vein how about just...

    "Turbocharged"

    or

    "Batteries Included"

    Caution, I'm a Hybrid!

    You know what they say about a guy with a big heart. . .

    My myocardial cells are not the only thing in disarray!

    My ticker is bigger than your ticker!

    Fighting SCD one day at a time

    Intel inside!

    On _ _- _ _ - _ _ I found out I had HCM
    On _ _- _ _ - _ _ I decided I wanted to Live! (insert next day date)

    HCM the disease that keeps on giving. . .

    Just a few off the top of my head:

    "HCM is for lovers"

    "Because size really does matter"

    "Big heart, warm _____"

    No, I don't think you should dump the idea. I think it'd be great to have a t-shirt sales, (especially a funny t-shirt), fundraiser for the HCMA. I have some ideas, but my brain is just not pulling them together. In addition to HCM, I'm also trying to think specifically of those who have had myectomies, ICDs, and a-fib issues, etc.

    I'll put my husband on it. He can be witty with a bit of a dry sense of humor. Sometimes reminds me of Marc/MBCube and Doug/Bucky. Anyway, let's keep brainstorming!

    Ok this is a blatant attempt by me to keep this on the top of the pile.

    Any thoughts ideas?

    Should I just dump this attempt to raise money for the HCMA????

    OK after seeing the post that Mbcube had put up about defib Tshirts (hysterical you should see them) I figured why not.
    A little research and I found this.

    http://shop.cafepress.com/design/1295594

    We can do shirts, mugs, tote bags, bumper stickers etc. with all proceeds going to HCMA!!!

    We need cheesy sayings, logos, artwork, cartoons, clever and witty ?????
    You tell me!!!

    We have a great base of creative people out there so lets put it to good use.

    If you have artwork/ picture files send them to my direct email
    [email protected]

    We'll draft a few moderators and Lisa to be judges and put them into production.
Working...
