Why Wear a Plain T-Shirt?

picture of plain t-shirt

With the official end of fall later this week, I thought I'd post something that would be a farewell to summer. With the hot weather of summer, one of people's favorite things to wear out and about is t-shirts. And with t-shirts come some great t-shirt sayings!

Here are some more humorous things you could wear on a t-shirt wear instead of sporting just a plain one.

Here I am! Now what are your other two wishes?

Did you see any funny t-shirts this summer? If you remember any, please post them in a comment. BTW, I have kind of gotten away from replying to comments on my blog and am going to try to do better in that department.

    A “friend” bought me one because of the many deals I’ve gotten on Ebay. It reads “I didn’t lose my mind, I sold it on Ebay”

    I have gone to find myself. If I get back before I return, keep me here.

    I like wearing t-shirts as well but don’t wear them as often as I’d like because of certain dress guidelines I follow. So, I end up wearing them to work in the yard or to play sports or something like that and I don’t want to wear new t-shirts doing that. So, any witty t-shirts that I would have usually collect dust.

    Wonderful post! Since I buy all my son’s clothes at thrift shops, I’ve gone through many racks of t-shirts. I have to say…in the past 15 years…t-shirts have gotten profane! I won’t allow my 15 year old son to go through the rack. It’s so sad.

    Two t-shirts I bought for him this year: “Everyone is born a righty but only a few overcome it.” (Yes, he’s a lefty.) And “If it flies, it dies.” (Yes, he’s a hunter.)

    Enjoy your new schoolyear! Be sure to tell your students about the fun rice game that helps with learning french.

    A few of my favorites:

    I love animals, they’re delicious!
    I don’t suffer from stress. I’m a carrier.

    Save the whales. Collect the whole set.

    Thanks for the t-shirt chuckles. 🙂

    About the sigline . . . I read it halfway through before realizing that it was a kind of run-on that my English 102 class hasn’t even discussed yet!!!!!

    Oh, and one t-shirt that Mama has seen before said: “Silence is golden, Duct tape is silver.”

    Wow! The comments took on a life of their own today as I busily taught, etc. Thanks for the great t-shirt sayings you’ve either seen or worn! Keep ’em coming!

    A few of my favorites, all science related:

    Global Warming: all the cool planets are doing it.

    Rocket Science: making everything else look simple since 1958.

    Stand back, I’m going to try science.

    Obey Gravity. It’s the Law!

    Bacteria: It’s the only culture some people have.

    May the F=ma be with you.

    Reading through the comments, I would have a hard time picking my favorite/s. I’m like Michael in that I don’t get to display my t-shirts much. In fact, my personal collection of t-shirts is pretty boring, for a guy who enjoys humor so much. 😀

    Many years ago, I saw a man wearing a T-shirt, the front of which read: “Frankie’s Bail Bond and Dry Cleaning Service.” The back said: “We get the fuzz off your back.”
