Jason Eppink's Catalogue of Creative Triumphs

Mike Lacher and I are students of common phrases on Twitter. One phrase, “I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again”, stuck out to both of us as particularly inefficient and silly. We decided to harvest these phrases, mock them up on t-shirts, and attempt to sell them back to their originators as techno-dystopian start up Instant Shirt.

Four months and nearly 25,000 t-shirts later, we were shut down for being spammers, but not after a handful of people bought shirts.

Peruse our favorite responses to get a sense of the wide range of reactions to the bot.
