    Am I obtuse?

    So I made this t-shirt. I think it's clear. Otter, took one look at it and said, "What does that even mean? I don't get it."

    So I want to take a poll: Is it obvious what the shirt means? Or is the meaning obscure?

    Oh, and obtuse is referring to my thinking vis-a-vis the shirt, not my stomach.

    No coup, a reference to the current impeachment proceedings I presume. As a printer I question your font selection. Oh, and I turned your pic for you.

    To those that have watched much of the clown show in Washington lately, it makes sense. If not, they probably have no clue.

    I believe it will be obvious to some- maybe even many, but not all.

    (edit: a lot of folks are just..... "duh?")

    I am sure there are a lot of millennials that will not get it.

    The first one I had made used sans-serif... I didn't like it. You think I went too far?

    On rotating... It always showed up in the correct orientation on my computer, it was 90º off on your device? Hmmm...

    Thanks for your input.

    Often a pic will appear fine only to show up sideways once uploaded to the forum. That's what I saw.

    This explains why it happens easier than I can type it all: https://www.howtogeek.com/254830/why...ectly-rotated/

    Windows will read the EXIF data and show you correct orientation on thumbnails and in Window programs. You can probably use any program, but I open the photo in Windows Paint. The picture will still appear correct. However if you rotate it 90 degrees one way (left or right), and then back again to correct, and then save it, the picture will truly be converted to the correct orientation.

    In your case I did exactly that. I downloaded the picture. Opened it in Paint, rotated it right 90 degrees, rotated it left 90 degrees, and saved it. Then I removed your attachment and uploaded the one I fixed.

    Not only will they not get it, with the state of 'education' in American today they'll think in should be spelled 'coo.'
