Someone would pay for that font? It literally hurts my eyes.

Well, they get to make T-shirts with "Clean - the /other/ purely
Seriously though - thet text can be interpreted as Haskell, the purely
functional language to distinguish it from Haskell, the county in
Texas, or Haskell, the Indian Nations University....or for that matter
Haskell, the logician.
To avoid any hard feelings, I suggest either putting "Haskell the
logician" (with a picture of same) on the back of the shirt, or
replacing the text with just "purely functional" or similar.
At any rate, "A" is to weak, and suggests just one of the crowd.

Oh, I'm terribly sorry, I didn't mean to cause any harm. To sooth
your eyes, I created another variation, which also features a tagline
that, in my opinion, captures more closely the gist of the impression
Haskell makes on most programmers.
This one is dedicated to you, Derek. Good luck with your eyes.
