a voice for men MRA

Contest time! Design a commemorative plate for A Voice for Men! Actual prize will be awarded.

Can you fill in that white space with some crap?
Can you fill in that white space with some crap?

A couple of days ago, we did our best to figure out what was going on with the strongly vaginal imagery of A Voice for Men’s newly issued commemorative coins, designed by a “a world class jeweler and minter, widely recognized as a master artisan in his trade,” who also happens to be the father of A Voice for Men’s “Activia Director” Attila Vinczer.

The commemorative coins were such a lovely gift to all of us who enjoy laughing at MRAs that a friend of this blog suggested to me that we should return the favor by designing a commemorative plate for AVFM. This generous soul also pledged to provide a prize for the winner: an authentic “male tears” coffee mug.

So let’s see what you’ve got! You can use the carefully prepared commemorative plate template I pasted in above, or make one of your own. The more perplexing, the better!

If you need some inspiration, let me remind you again what the official AVFM commemorative coin looks like:

I’m sorry. That’s not AVFM’s commemorative coin. That is actually a guinea pig wearing glasses. Let me try again:

82028e3d8085bdd970681eacfce72967Crap. That’s actually a nineteenth-century illustration depicting the Galvanic Reanimation of the Dead. Here we go again:

What is that I don’t even.

Ok,ok, here’s the damn coin:

avfmcoin

Also, I am being told that the younger Vinczer is not actually AVFM’s “Activia Director.” He is actually the site’s “Minister of Greek Yogurt.”

I have some artistic skill – is that a handicap?

I pretty much lost it immediately at the guinea pig in glasses.

Damn…I’m so hopelessly outclassed on this one, I’m not even in the running. I am really looking forward to everyone else’s designs!

I wasn’t seeing a vagina (actually vulva) in the coin from the other angle, but now I am. A vulva with either a really oddly placed piercing or an STD that the bearer should probably see a doctor about.

(Seriously, if it’s supposed to be a pool of water what are the little dots on the top of the middle bit meant to be?)

I still think the coin looks more like a butthole than a vulva. I can see where you’re coming from, though.

Anyways, I was gonna do one with some dudes in fedoras sitting in a strangely yonic pink canoe, with something about cooperation and all pulling together now, but it was too much like work. I’m opting to sit around eating bonbons instead.

Before all this attention from Eliot Rodger, I found your blog incredibly intelligent, useful and metered, but after Eliot, and the enormous media crazy with it that you’ve become a part of, I am being made reminded of this quote…. Nietzsche said, “beware that, when fighting monsters, you yourself do not become a monster… for when you gaze long into the abyss. The abyss gazes also into you.”

I know monsters. I know them very well. I danced with them and became one. I recovered. I hope you can remain apart from the monsters who fight the monsters.

Those are the one who have the historical voice.

@cassandra – I thiiiiiink it’s supposed to be the splash from something thrown into the water, which made the ripples, blah blah metaphor about ripples of change?

It’s really just a butthole spewing diarrhea, though. Intent isn’t magic, even in artistry 😛

@cassandrakitty: I think those spots are supposed to be other water droplets rebounding off the surface of the pond, like the uppermost is the central water droplet … but the artist was obviously going off of a written description and not use references.

This is literally the weirdest blog post you could have chosen to make this comment on.

Gretchen, what are you on about?

Seeing the “coin” in that picture, the whatever-it-is pictured just looks like a flattened drink can to me now, like one of these.

I think maybe Gretchen was suggesting that we not stare too long into the stylized butthole/vagina/pool of water with a beaver hiding in it, in case the beaver stares back (and is in a bad mood).

I’d submit an entry but alas, I simply don’t have the talent to design something that evokes a hypertensive, rage induced stroke with spittle flying towards the hapless viewer.

Yeah, the coin mostly looks like a butthole to me, but you know, that’s not much (any?) better.

Any excuse to crudely shop dickbutt onto a plate anyway. :v

Frankly that’s what I think is most likely to come of any kind of commenorative plate.

I think Viz beat us all to it with this cross-cultural exemplar of male heroism, sacrifice, leadership, spirituality, innovation and cool shades that is the MRA movement.

It’s the Souvenir Elvis Tutankhamun Dambusters Clock Plate of Tutankhamun. Warning: quite sweary. This is Viz.

Quantumscale, perfect! It combines the level of seamless photoshopping, graphic design skill and wtf-ery we’ve come to know and enjoy from the MRA! I’m sure this will be their fav.

Nitram,

Thank you kindly. I am definitely not the artist in the family, more like the musician, but that came to me in a vision. I had to go out and buy colored pencils and a sketchbook to get it down. It has made me laugh for years. (note the signature and say it kinda quick like 😉 )

I have no skill in graphic arts, so I won’t even attempt a design. But I would humbly submit the following copy: “We hunted the mammoth … and all we got was this crappy commemorative plate!”

@bluecatbabe: I think my favorite little detail about the Dambusters Tutankhamun Timepiece is the face of the clock clearly has fighters on it, not anything like the bombers actually used in the Dambusters raid.

Damn. Now, that coin not only looks uglier (if that’s even possible), but it’s like there’s a disgruntled toad in the middle of the pool, coming up to tell those bozos to quit throwing rocks. That’s it, isn’t it?
