    (This might have been cool five years ago)
  • This tag was also available as a wearable pin

    UNDERRATED CULTURAL SYMBOL tag

    Let's hope this genre doesn't die out.
    Weak pulse, though.
  • I WAS HERE
    (and you weren't) time-of-day tag
  • Practical. If you know what I mean, Jack.
  • 
    
    NEW WAVE PSYCHOLOGY tag
  • These tags are secret propaganda for the ideology called New Wave Psychology.
  • First principle of New Wave Psychology: goofing off is often the right thing to do.

    Idea for "CULTURE Tags" based on "Crise Tags,"
    price-tags on which Robert Crise, Jr.
    -- Kent State art student and Jerry's Diner waiter --
    wrote his signature and other messages.
    
    
    View the tags created for and distributed by the band, The Waitresses.
