That is SO COOL. Do you think they would work with Canadian banks?

That's so much better than the polar bears and deer and things I have now on my cheques. I wouldn't mind a T-shirt with WAGESLAVE on it like that, either.

But Doug, by asking for a t-shirt your are unwittingly participating in the capitalist consumer economy from which you wish to rebel!

Speaking of which, I heard of an amusing study that indicated that economics students tended to be cheaper than others when asked to share out $10 among themselves and two others in any way they thought desirable.

Yes - these checks do work with Canadian Banks. Check out our site - www.thechequerepublic.com - especially the "press kit" page - interesting articles by local press and, of all places, Forbes.

someone mentioned T-shirts - we did make one up and i guess that would be a good idea but if we had more time... and capital...
