Spirit of America Swag

| 18 Comments | 34 TrackBacks

Like I said in my previous post, Spirit of America still needs your help. The drive to raise funds to build TV stations in Iraq continues.

You can click the button to donate:

The Fighting Fusileers for Freedom have done stellar work so far. Many of the team are holding auctions - the high bidder makes the appropriate donation and gets the swag.

I have nothing appropriate to auction off... except for my own skill. Here's the deal: a custom-made official Castle Argghhh! CluebatTM:

cluebat.gif

Bidding opens at $50 -- make your bid in the comments. The highest offer that then follows through with a donation receipt that post-dates the auction wins, so be sure to save an e-copy of the receipt that you can e-mail to me. The auction stays open until midnight tomorrow.

(Update: see this post for additional incentives.)

The winning bid/donation will receive a CluebatTM similar to that shown next to the Louisville SluggerTM in the photo above. [Yes, that's a real full-size baseball bat.] The CluebatTM can be made from your choice of cherry, maple, or walnut. We can talk about design specifics and shipping info after the auction closes. Of course, I will pay all the shipping charges.

"So what's a CluebatTM for?" you ask. Think "clue-by-four."

So click "Comments" below and place your bids!

[Disclaimer: the Castle Argghhh! CluebatTM is intended for display and/or moonbat-threatening purposes only. While it may in fact be useful for actually imparting "clue" to the clueless, laws regarding assault and battery in your state and/or municipality will certainly frown upon such use. And besides, you wouldn't want to mar the finish of such a fine piece of craftsmanship by whacking a bone-head with it.]

Update: for the term "Castle Argghhh! CluebatTM" in this post, you may also freely substitute the term "Imperial CluebatTM". The Cluebat Project in fact began life as a commision for His Imperial Rottiness, Emperor Darth Misha I.

The winner of the auction may specify the particular name-customization, if any, he or she would prefer on the Cluebat.

Update: Traves at Right Wingin-it is jumping in with a Very Special Offer: the "small arms" version of the CluebatTM.

Update: we have a winner!

I can't think of a better cause today -- I'll open the bid at $50.

$100!

$150.00

$175.00

It ain't a stainless steel Morpholine Mix Paddle...
but it's close.

LOL!

i knew us woodworkers wood come through with something!

great auction Russ

As soon as I've got the money...

Damn it! Where are those checks from Haliburton I was supposed to be getting! Me want! Me want now! Me pout until get one.

Dang it!!! You WOULD do this the day before we go on vacation!!!

(try's to calculate minimal amount of gas a 1300 mile round trip would cost.....)

$200.

When I'm elected President of the United States of America I will make TacJammer the offical supplier of Cluebats to the United States Military! After all, besides Cluebat's perscribed uses, they also serve many other needs such as flotation device, emergency medical splint, and firewood for downed Pilots to use in signal fires!

Feeling a touch of cluebat envy. $210.

Wow, way past my spending limit, just a thought, couldya wouldya make a mini cluebat? desk top model?

Sir Knight

Wow, way past my spending limit, just a thought, couldya wouldya make a mini cluebat? desk top model?

My lathe and woodturning tools are all full-size... but I can certainly try to make a mini-bat.

LOL Russ, A mini cluebat would look so good prominately displayed on my desk. but no worries LOL if need be i can go buy a fish bat and modify it to a mini-cluebat,

Thanks
Sir Knight

Russ - doing good boyo.

I think you have a marketable product there in the mini-cluebats... mebbe time to open up a sideline.

I'll take mine in Ironwood. Let's see how good you are at keeping your tools sharp!

I could always use a sideline, you betcha.

Tell ya what - you find me some ironwood and I'll make the bat.
