An ALTERNATIVE Contest

On November 28, 2008 A of A announced a Contest:


"T-shirt Tagline


We're designing Age of Autism t-shirts and you're invited to submit your idea(s) for the tagline. We're looking for a pithy, "so that's what they're all about" sentence to run under our logo. Submit your ideas in the comments section. Have fun. Be creative. (But remember, your kids will read the t-shirt too.) We'll announce the winner in a couple of days."


Well, what a great idea. What is AoA all about? Let's run a contest of our own. Assume that AoA would use the most factually accurate entry, not one that promotes what they promote, and leave it in your comments.


In all fairness, I must tell you that the prize is the joy of writing. Nothing more. Nothing less. And, of course, it will be published.

  11. Nun, once again you imply that somehow we are making money for our position on the greatness of vaccines. However, like I said before, if you cannot tell mewhere to sign up, your post wil not make it to the blog.

    I made an exception in this case, since your tagline is so incredibly stupid, I just had to share it with others.

  12. Pharma-whores? Really? You don't mean like the people on Age-Of-Autism hawking supplements and HBOT or Jenny McCarthy selling everything from books to gluten free edible undies? The whole lot of them are being making money from autism.

    Another tagline:

    If you do not agree with us, you must be a pharma shill (because we have no other intelligent way to respond).

  15. Nun, contracting measles or mumps or any of the other diseases you are trying to re-invigorate with your stupid should be the penalty for all anti-vaxers. Sadly it will be their children who succumb since the parents were already vaccinated by their smarter parents. A sad proof that reason has a very small genetic component.

  16. Nun can't help her ignorance. It's old habit.
