I've used the same web-hosting service for years now, ever since I've been developing web pages. As a company, they're reliable and cheap and I am too comfortable with them at this point to probably ever use anyone else. What—you may ask—does any of that have to do with this weird site?
In 2019, I logged into my email to discover that my web-hosting service had gifted me a free domain name to celebrate my customer loyalty. What luck!
Shove your mind back all the way to 2019, during the regular basketball season. Now, I don't actually watch sports that much, but there was no avoiding how well our beloved Bucks were performing during that season, thanks in large part to the impressive talents of a young and gifted man from Greece.
They seemed unstoppable, and to cash in on Bucks fervor, a series of tents appeared on steet corners and medians to sell not-quite-official Bucks paraphernalia. I recall thinking to myself: "I could design way more knock-offy stuff than that!" And took it as a challange to do just that.
That very day I created Milwaukee Knockoff dot com, using my free domain name (it was only free for the first year—of course) and designed the first shirt that would grace its pages: Be Afraid of a Deer.
I dove in head first, designing a collection of shirts, each more stupid than the last.
