what kind of freak are you?

I’m working on a set of t-shirts for the Global Spin community (plus a secret project I’ll unveil later this month). I have a couple designs mocked up already and a decent place to make and sell them, and I’ve run into a bit of a snag.

There are too many kinds of freaks.

That’s ordinarily not a problem for us. We protect our freaks, no matter what kind. But I’m having trouble thinking of a complete list, let alone designs for them all, so I need your help. Where should I start? What kind of freak are you?

  • Transit Freak
  • Neat Freak
  • Sci-Fi Freak
  • Space Freak
  • Plant Freak
  • Super-Freak
  • Geek Freak
  • just plain Freak
  • other (specify)
  • some kinda freak, i’m not sure what
  • I’m not a freak, freak!

And remember, this is for posterity so be honest. Include as many categories as you think apply. For instance, I’m a Transit Freak, a Sci-Fi Freak, a Space Freak, a Science Freak, and a Geek Freak. Like they say: I’m not just the founder, I’m a client.

So let your freakness shine. What kind of freak are you, anyway?

UPDATE: Just to be clear, I’m looking for your complete list, not just the freakishness that isn’t on the list yet.  Be complete!

  6. Nice work, Deana and Jaime.  I’m already seeing some good ones to start with.  Everyone else:

    Come on, people! There have to be more than three visitors to this site. If not, maybe I should reconsider whether our freaks are worth protecting after all.
