Tom’s Tips

My Savage Burn of Bob Murphy

Posted by: By Tom Woods | July 07, 2019

I may not be as quick or as clever as masters like Michael Malice or economist Bob Murphy, but the old man occasionally gets a good one in.

In promoting this year’s Contra Cruise (the vacation Bob and I host for our listeners), Bob posted on Facebook a link about Alaska, our destination, and the embedded photo showed a whale leaping out of the water.

Bob’s accompanying text ended with the words, “The whale has not yet been confirmed to speak.”

To which I replied:

“Bob, I thought it was certain you were going to speak.”


A month later, a mysterious package arrived.

An anonymous person had sent me a beautiful sweatshirt with our design on it, and the words, “I came to hear the whale speak.”

I am wearing it as I type this.

How’d he do it? Is he some amazing designer with a sweatshirt factory in his home?

He used print on demand.

It’s a fun business to start, and requires basically no up-front investment. (Hence “print-on-demand.”)

I’m making you a deal:

I’ll promote your product, or your full-blown print-on-demand store, to my audience.

Think that’s a valuable bonus? (Duh.)

But she’s disappearing, so go:


Some of the links on this site are affiliate links, which means I earn a commission if you click on them and buy something. This helps me keep the lights on around here. Naturally, I don't recommend a product unless I have used and benefited from it myself, or I have researched it enough to determine it to be of good quality and likely to benefit my readers. I don't promote anything created by the swamp dwellers. Thanks for reading!
