Can't stop, addicted to the shindig

I'm planning on makaing a Mitch Hedberg-tribute-ish shirt. He is a comedian who died a few months ago, for those who don't know. But I wanted to stencil a shirt with some sort of reference to his comedy.

I'm thinking about stenciling a severed bottom half of a leg (like, the shin and the foot) and putting  "The ultimate stocking stuffer" but I don't know if it would be too vague.

"That's the thing about Narcissus. It's not that he's so fucking in love with himself, because that's not it at all. He fucking hates himself. It's just that without that reflection looking back at him...he doesn't exist."

Awesome idea! 
I love Mitch--he's tied with Andy Kaufman in my book.  Sad that they're both gone.  Cry

I don't think that quote is too vague.  I think most people could make the foot/stuffer connection even without knowing who said it.  I think alot of his humor would be cool and quirky on a shirt, even without illustration.  Like:

Smokey is way more intense in person.
Where are the DuFresnes?
I haven't slept for ten days, because that would be too long. 
It's hard to dance if you just lost your wallet.
I think pickles are cucumbers that sold out. They sold their soul to the devil, and the devil is dill...
Fruit on the bottom, hope on top.

I saw a guy wearing a shirt that said, "Race car passenger".  Heehee!

...so believe when I say Im no better than you, except when I craft so I guess it aint true.

If you are flammable and have legs you are never blocking a fire exit

I agree with SassetteOPants about the stocking stuffer idea.

I love Mitch Hedberg, it was so sad when he died, the greats always die too early.

If you are not vigilant and demanding of your talent everyday, you will slowly become what you hate.

I don't know why, but I envision Mitch's head in a thought bubble.  Heh.
