The Grossery Bag our new runner
We always trying to think of new ways to lose. Now we decided to add to our choice of runner up prizes currently the coveted Loser T shirt or yearned for Loser Mug a featherweight but spacious (20 by 16 by 6 inch) non woven polypropylene tote bag, that pseudo fabric kind that often used as reusable grocery bags or as totes for convention swag. We going to order 100 of them. The Empress is especially jazzed about this plan because (a) she doesn have to stock them in different sizes, like T shirts; (b) she doesn have to worry that they shatter in shipping, like mugs: and (c) they cost less than either of those options The Post doesn exactly have wads of money to toss around these days.
What the bag going to look like? That where you come in: This week: Suggest a design and/or slogan to go on the side of the ardently desired Style Invitational Loser Bag; our big whoop artist who slums for the Invite Bob Staake will do the actual artwork. We be including, for sure, the Washington Post logo, the words Invitational and our Web address; fortunately we have a nice big 12 by 8 inch space to work with. We can use two colors plus the color of the bag itself (which will depend on wh marc jacobs at design we use). The design will be on one side of the bag. All runners up, however, each get one of these bags. Because how better to really lose to get second, third or fourth place than to get a prize plastered with the entry that beat you?
