@PlacidPenguin i updated on some random post the other day. My wife had hidden it and it was some sort of “do you love me more than things” test. It turned into a fight. I’m pretty sure she was testing the waters to see if she really could throw it away. It was a fight. She now knows that bullshit tests will make her disappointed. Especially when my take was she didn’t respect me in any way.
I just asked if i should buy another. I’ve never received a more emphatic no.
@PlacidPenguin I kinda do want to buy another one. But i would want to enjoy it. If I hid it, it would just be a waste. The fact that i have one that hasn’t been thrown away and I’m not yelled at for wearing is good enough for me.
I’ve almost worn out my meh purple shirt. Cause I wore it weekly to the dayjob I left earlier this year because if I stayed much longer, it was gonna get bitchy. Like, real talk, I’ve backed both kickstarters, and I took the jump to self employed earlier this year, which has dented what I’d otherwise spend on meh/casemates. do me a solid, if you’d be so kind, and if there’s a white wine or sweet wine involved, all the better.
Real talk: after YEARS of trying to get a Fuko/fuku and ALWAYS timing out (maybe I AM a goddamn robot?!), all I really wanted was a cool reusable bag. Today I successfully ordered my g-d bag. Good job, me!
I get it. This is for all us losers who never got a FUKU/O. We can buy the bag, fill it with some crap we already bought, and pretend we actually were (un)lucky enough to have bought the actual goods.
In for one.
Does that give me bragging rights?
(BTW, I’m still not a robot, if it matters.)
YASS! I missed the shirt on April Fools when I had to plug into my wall unit to recharge…err…uhm…go to bed for the night…I was exhausted after a long day of trying to prove I was a hooman.
I am happy to take the leftover scraps!
really people…you think it was ok to get the wool pulled over your eyes…or what ever kind of fur that lil ugly irk has…if money and self pride means so little to all these positive remarks on here then you deserve it!
@eazyrider I hit cancel instead of post on my reply to your earlier comment, but this was the gist of it…
A bait and switch that occurs entirely in your head (i.e. not reading and getting your hopes up) is not a bait and switch at all.
Now here’s more. It’s not like they said “Fukobukuro, nah, just kidding, here’s a shirt.” These items are Fukobukuro shirts and bags bearing the Fukobukuro design. There is no other proper way to refer to them. I’m not sure what there is to get so worked up about.
Real talk,meh. I had a woot account, now dormant. I’ve backed you through both kickstarter events. My too small apartment overflows with your crap. Do more food things, we use them more, and if you want to send wine or other treats like cheese, salami, or other booze, just let me know when to check the mail. Kidding, mostly, but could impulse buy more given more incentive. (Also why is the north by northwest chard not shipping until a month after it was offered? I anticipate it being a sangria worthy wine at that price point.gimme!)
Q: Is my purchase taxable?
A: If you’re shipping to CA, IL, MO, NY, TX, or WA we’ll add the sales tax to your order. Most other states say you’re supposed to report and pay tax on out-of-state purchases. Whether you do that or not is your problem.
I been on here since near inception 4 years ago so let me digest this i haven’t been able to land a fuko deal but i’m to buy an empty bag and shirt , sounds like a bad joke on me …you suck and that’s the first time i’ve ever been negative about Meh.You know what they say about greedy pigs? they go to slaughter today may be the beginning of the end …greedy pigs you are !!!
So totals confused… please explains why I got “sold out, there are no more of these” for the Fuku on Monday when clearly there are tons more Fuku bags to make more Fukus for those of us that were never able to procure one… especially on the last Fuku ever… also would have been a nice gesture to have some for VMP members who have kept our membership through the good, bad, really bad, and meh deals… just saying
You’ve got to accentuate the positive
Eliminate the negative
Latch on to the affirmative
Don’t mess with Mister In-Between
You’ve got to spread joy up to the maximum
Bring gloom down to the minimum
Have faith or pandemonium
Liable to walk upon the scene
To illustrate his last remark
Jonah in the whale, Noah in the ark
What did they do
Just when everything looked so dark
personally, I thought this was kind of a nice thing to do for all the folks who were “0 for 20” and “just wanted the bag”.
it’s interesting that some received the offer in this spirit, while others pretty much lost their shit.
perhaps this isn’t an empty bag & a shirt.
maybe it’s a mirror.
@fastharry See, you have to get rid of the stuff for 5 bucks, and depending upon your local municipality’s rules for getting rid of crap, that may be inconvenient or inexpensive. This way, you are guaranteed a bag, plus you get a shirt! And they get rid of the fuko bags since they are renaming it for some reason.
I’m a little concerned. The purchase map shows someone on the Eastern Shore of MD - even my county - buying this. This map area is NEVER lit up unless I buy something - which I did not. I demand this individual step up and offer an explanation!
Hi - can I buy a plain old “Meh.” logo t-shirt in a size and color of my choice, please?
I can’t do this shirt because I don’t trust Kanji characters - too many examples of non-Asians being punked by shit they don’t understand. lol
My brother’s GF is a native of Japan who has lived here (in the U.S.) for 40 years, works as a translator and has enough stories of non-Asians with tattoos and t-shirts of Kanji that are either nonsense or outright offensive/insulting/humiliating to make an English speaker stay firmly in his lane.
Hmm… I have to ask her if there’s a Japanese equivalent of the term “Engrish”.
You guys owe me a bag because one of my fukobukuro’s didn’t include one. I just went through some of my shirts and found two Meh shirts, plus there are way too many Asian people in the neighborhood if that doesn’t say what we think it says…heck even if it does. so…if you still have bags left over, you can send me one.
I’m embarrassed by how much Meh swag I own. I almost doubled up on those awesome face pillows the other day. (They make awesome gifts btw.) I couldn’t resist this t-shirt simply because it has killer kanji on it. The bag will be awesome for shopping at Japanese grocery stores I’m sure. I’m ready to be a Fuko Poseur!
Update: the shirts are just now getting ordered & printed. I think we’ll probably still hit the delivery estimate listed above and on your orders, but I wanted to give an early heads up that we’re a few days delayed from where I’d originally planned.
