In all of his explanations, dude missed the most obvious gestural analog to the “falsum”: a raised middle finger.

FALSUM NEWS!

Part of the beauty of ⊥ is that it can exist (given more familiarity) on its own (sans rump) and thereby be easily and quickly applied (responsibly and tastefully, of course) in, oh, let’s say, ‘spontaneous situations’ where speed of application is essential.

Where can I buy the shir⊥?


#9

All kidding aside, one could do his/her own shirt. Use fabric paint. Airbrushing it on is one way. Another would involve simply brushing the ⊥ on. Personally, I’d brush it on, and leave the ends of the ⊥’s two strokes ‘punkishly’ ragged; shows you mean bid-nezz!

I’m thinking about a freezer-paper stencil version… Guess I know what I’m doing this weekend!

Thanks for posting my stuff, Cory!

MrHarley,

You can buy other falsum items and support my work at: https://williamaarons.etsy.com

Or, you can make your own!

Sleeping in a bit?

Oh! Doing the shirt!


#13

Wait. Wrong Mr. T.


#14

I say let’s get medieval…

#16

Do the Falsum!

(I emailed the guy, and it sounds like he was aware of the similarity.)


#17

I want to be friends with this young lady.

if you are using it to refer to 45, I think that ⊥ is more ap⊥.
