Don't you think it's interesting the T-shirts that people sometimes choose to wear? I've been thinking a little about this since I read this post of Fraught's. It's as if people forget the fact that whatever sentiment their shirt carries is what they're sporting around wherever they go, whatever they're doing, all day long.
For instance. Today Jason and I were at the mall with Nate and Grace. We went to buy a vacuum. That's not the subject of this post, but dang. Buying a vacuum is a much more complex scenario than it used to be. Power heads, rotary brushes, bagless, HEPA filters, suction, carpet, tile, upright. Good grief. I now know way more about vacuum-ology than I ever wanted to. After we finally made the decision, I felt like I needed to go lie down for awhile. Such vacuum angst! But about the T-shirt. So we're sitting in the food court and this middle aged guy walks by pushing a toddler in a stroller. His T-shirt said, "When I become God, everybody dies."
And I was all, Really? That's how you're gonna finish that sentence? I mean, I can appreciate the humor of sentiments I don't necessarily agree with. But not only is that one vaguely stupid and weird, it's not even funny. Sir, you should get your money back for that shirt. Cause it doesn't even make sense. I mean, if you wanna say something, try harder, for pete's sake.
Like this, for instance.
Have you seen this website? They sell these as shirts or posters. Hilarious. If dude wants to wear a T-shirt that is in your face and somewhat abrasive, he could at least make it witty.
I like this one:
If we're going to be snarky and mean-spirited in our T-shirt wearing, let's all be a little more creative, okay? That is all I ask.
P.S. And here's another one. Is he looking at me?
Do you have any favorites? Or any awful-shirt-sightings?
