Don't Get Me Wrong, I'm flattered... Posted on 10/24/2002.

So, it has come to my attention that someone out there is selling t-shirts with my benday-dotted visage on them.

Thing is, I have no idea who, and I don't quite "get" the tagline.

FUN FACT: benday dots are named after Benjamin Day.

Oh come on, you so do "get it."

I'm just jealous.

I don't get it. But, hey, you've been immortalized in cotton.

How did you manage to unknowingly end up on commercial t-shirts?

(Ironically, I found your website because your benday-dotted visage showed up here.)

don't get me wrong, i like peter too!!

but maybe there's a flip side to the t-shirt which would help us get it.

kinda disturbing, and kinda cool, too.

I'm not surprised that there are t-shirts with halftone photos of Peter on them. I'm surprised Peter found out about it and would love to hear how this came about.
