Open Source T-Shirt: NATO Ain’t a Treaty Organization

Here’s a really geeky t-shirt I designed a few months ago.

[NATO t-shirt design; reads "NATO Ain't a Treaty Organization"]

This is based on Aurélio A. Heckert’s Bold GNU Head, and is available under the Free Art License.

An explanation: GNU stands for GNU’s Not Unix, which is a recursive acronym, and is sort of false, since GNU essentially is Unix. NATO, according to the shirt, stands for NATO Ain’t a Treaty Organization, which is a recursive acronym, and is false. Clever? No. But if it was, I would bother with actually making and wearing one.

I expect that nobody would wear one of these, but if anybody actually is interested, they should get the relevant files and take them to their local t-shirt shop, and then send me photos.
