T-Shirts are the New Bumper Stickers

I have a love hate relationship with the currently en vogue style of T-shirt with the catchy joke. I appreciate the truly good one, but the vast majority of them just take the jokes off of ten year old bumper stickers, and people buy this shit. There are also the redoes of old t-shirts. These don't bother me so much and I've seen both redoes and bumper sticker shirts that I like, but can't buy do to different circumstances. Like I saw a shirt of the I HEART variety ala I HEART NY that I liked that said I HEART Soccer Moms. Unfortunately, my position as a youth soccer coach at the YMCA might make this choice look like poor taste. Of course that's exactly why I want the shirt. Oh well, for the sake of not scarring my kids I'll pass.

My favorite t-shirt on I saw on someone last week:

"All this and great pancakes in the morning"

I too find joke t-shirts to be largely boring "easy lay-up" jokes, with the rare acception that makes me laugh.

Soon, you'll probably be able to get a t-shirt with a fake "Calvin" peeing on a Chevy symbol. Oh joy.
