Been a while folks, but we’re back with another Principals Office! We hope you’ve missed us a much as we’ve missed you. Truth be told, we wanted out. But you, our adoring public dragged us back into the game. And since no new design can escape our watchful eyes, someone has to do the dirty work of calling out the bad ones. This week we present to you the (somewhat) new invention from Fabrikan called “Spray on Fabric.” It’s real, and it was almost too easy for us to write about…. almost! Voted by Time Magazine the 6th best invention of 2010, it’s the flamboyantly gay brother to Ron Popeil’s Hair in a Can, ironically voted one of Time’s 50 worst inventions of 2010.

Anyone with half a brain who’s ever seen Teen Wolf knows these simple facts: Don’t get less than 8 hours of sleep, never have sex with a woman with a tattoo of a dagger on her body, and don’t play cards with someone who has the first name of a city. These three easy rules, what we like to call, “The Principals Principles” have never failed us in our not-so-difficult trek towards perfection. But like any axiom, they should be able to evolve with the changing times. And since the orgiastic feast begetted by the 3D printer, these times really-are-a-changin’ (well… not really really a-changin’, just like, theoretically a-changin’
