bright idea turns out to be lame

I had been contemplating a "Superman was an illegal alien!" mug design for my CafePress store... until I Googled the phrase and discovered just how done to death the idea has been.

Let that be a lesson to all you slogan-makers and hopefuls who think you've got the Next Big Thing: it's already been said; it's already been done. You are beaten. It is useless to resist. Don't let yourself be destroyed as Obi-wan did.

Maybe we'll have to one-up the "illegal alien" concept and do a "Superman kryptonite-cuffed by INS" mug. Show Supes in a prison cell screaming, "Eliaaaaaaaan! Eliaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan!" while being donkey-punched by Batman.
