Today, since I'm going to an meeting, I'm wearing my favorite shirt I've ever designed! I made it for Wobblies who were involved at Occupy.

It's a cutesy sabo-tabby (the IWW cat), next to an acrostic of , which spells out "All Cats Are Beautiful."

Those in the know might know that's not what ACAB always means - sometimes it means All Cops Are Bad.

A cool nuance toward this other spelling-out is that a cat is a worker who's damn good at their work and likes it. So yea, ACAB!

@emsenn nice! did you print it yourself?

be careful though - i dont know what attitudes are like where you are but ive heard of a fair few people getting fined for wearing acab stuff, even with alternative backronyms

@twee To quote an old Guthrie song, "The police might arrest me, but the judge gon' set me free."

I'm fortunate to live in a place with largely Democrat and mostly moderate old-school conservatives as the judges who would see the case.

@emsenn Nice, I hope the meeting is great! I am still reading through the IWW links you gave me, albeit slowly, and digesting it all. Rad shirt by the way!
