I hate the /no evil thing, BUT it's pandas...THREE pandas! yes my dumb brain loves cute shirts that I don't have to explain to someone or that someone isn't staring at me trying to figure out what kind of graphic is on my shirt. t-shirts are for fun and nothin's funner than pandas. :P
Well said, godslinger (not about your dumb brain, because I don't know you well enough to make that judgment call)! Indeed, I'd venture to say that shirts are intended simply for the brief but entertaining reaction by friends and the INITIAL conversation starter; NOT for an extended philosophical conversation regarding the intrinsic value of the shirt's cryptic message itself.
As with any attention getter, such as the aesthetics of a website, or the commercial break on TV, there is a brief 5-7 second window in which the audience's limited attention can be won over before they change the channel or website. So with a shirt, most people will walk away if they don't quickly grasp the idea of the shirt, thus defeating the purpose of attraction attention.
Again, in agreement, pandas are awesome! I hope this shirt gets printed
