More noises of agreement with Ruben and Randall, and the economics of the
exercise are also rather daunting. By the time we get the shirts designed and

How about we kill the T-shirt idea, and create a virtual "T-shirt" (worn
by a virtual Groo?) on a web page, some sort of Groop specific design with a
