For cafepress.com, maybe.

Whoops, cafepress's interface was balky and didn't allow me to do what I wanted. I ended up going with zazzle.com. Cheap, fast & easy.

Stand Against Sit/Lie


Stand Against Sit/Lie, originally uploaded by dumbeast.

9th St betw Market & Mission. This was up for a day at the most. "Sit/Lie" is a new policy in SF making it illegal to sit or lie on the pavement, which is kind of funny, as the policy was drafted by politicians, and all most politicians ever do is sit there and lie to you, get it?
