Add my name to the list; the polo shirt is properly understated and snooty. Looks great. And the t-shirts ideas are good.

It's definitely better than having anything with "GIMPS" printed anywhere on it.

Maybe we need to do a contest for renaming GIMPS to something less gimpy? Something we'd be proud to put on a t-shirt without answering a bunch of awkward questions?

After 23 years and 17 primes it is a bit late to rename? At least 20 years too late?

You do have some good suggestions in there, Uncwilly.

I'd forgotten about that thread when it came up previously.

We still have a quartet of snooty custom logo polos as pictured in post #13 looking for a good home:

M - black (lower right in pic), canary (upper left in pic)
L - pumpkin (upper right in pic), canary.

Sizing is generous - I'm 6'2" and a L fits me comfortably.

All it takes is a $100 donation to GIMPS! Just include the ship-to address for the shirt in the Paypal note field.

Perhaps someone could chip in the extra $14.80, just to bring it up to a prime number. Unless US $5,212.20 is a prime number in some other currency.
