gnome-terminal command line startup

I would like to add a launcher with a gnome-terminal using a specific profile. I would think that the following would do just fine:

gnome-terminal -e "/usr/local/bin/fist -f'StickItToTheMan' -s25 -m'stick it' -m'to the man'" --geometry=100X50 --hide-menu-bar --window-with-profile=theman

When the launcher is activated, a terminal with deafult colors and menu bar is created. The command is executed i this window, then a second terminal is created with the default size, the hidden menu bar and the named profile.

This is keeping the man's foot on my neck.

Order is important apparently. this works:

gnome-terminal --geometry=100X50 --hide-menu-bar --window-with-profile=theman -e "/usr/local/bin/fist -f'StickItToTheMan' -s25 -m'stick it' -m'to the man'"

Now I'll show the man.
