with much thanks to The Delicious for inspiration…

the Twitter fail whale sushi t-shirt.

Or maybe I’m just bitter as I haven’t had sushi in too long…

I hate it when I see a whale while twitering, this one is an exception. LOL

The Delicious does like her sushi…but that is most definitely salmon. Hoping it’s low salt soy sauce.

I love this graphic!! I wrote a blog about this concept awhile ago and I feel like not much has changed in the world since we identified this problem.

Hi, my name is Lucas, I’m from Spain and I – together with a friend – organize a regular meeting with some twitter friends in our hometown and we usually go to a sushi bar. We’ve called the activity sushi&tweets, and we have a blog ( and a twitter account (@sushiandtweets). Since the beginning, we’ve been using an image we found on google images as our avatar on twitter. Today I’ve found your blog, and I’ve found out “our” avatar here. Is this an original design of yours? We’d love to keep using it as our avatar. Is that OK with you?

Waiting for your response.



thanks for the contact Lucas. Feel free to use the image in a non-commercial application (meaning you don’t make money from it), and toss in a credit in there.

I created this image, which is a parody of the twitter Fail Whale image.
