T-shirts, like bumper stickers and license plates, have become individual Americans' shout-out billboards. We proclaim our politics and theology, root for the home team, and express undying affection for this, that, and the other.
When you travel, reading t-shirts is one way to keep the mind active and the travel-weariness at bay.
Here are a few I've seen recently:
“The Sarcasm Society, Like we need your support.”
“If blondes have more fun…do they know it?”
“Just hand over the chocolate and no one will get hurt.”
Chicago: “Don’t hassle me. I’m a local.”
Knoxville: “I ran out of sick days, so I called in dead.”
Paris: “Shouldn’t the Air and Space Museum be Empty?”
Minneapolis: “I Love Boobs.” – The "I" is a bowling pin and text on the back of the shirt provides details re "bowling for breast cancer." By the way, a woman was wearing this t-shirt...
And my all-time favorite that I saw in Phoenix years ago: “Yeah, but it’s a dry heat.” Picture shows a human skeleton lying up against a cactus.
Is this a great country or what?
