This should be voted "Woot shirt most likely to get you harassed by the police." It's sort of like the Snoop Dog line, "1 - 8 - 7 on the undercover cop."

Wow, I didn't realize my shirt was gonna be on sale so soon. Thanks for the comments! I originally had the 5-0 chasing a 10-31 which is a robbery in progress but there's no way in heck anyone would be able to understand that. Get the shirt while you can before somebody calls the 5-0 cause this shirt at such a low price has to be stealing! f'sho! G'Night!

Yet another vivid illustration of the age-old fashion stand-by, "Never wear a hat if your body is shaped like the number 5."

"187" = murder


I actually don't get why the cops are "five-oh"...?

For police codes? True. But there is a Senate Bill 420 dealing with the medical marijuana program of California.

This slang term for police started from lingo used in the TV show "Hawaii 5-0" (a police drama). Hawaii was also the 50th State admitted into the Union.
My mother used to watch that show all the time...ugh.

Clearly this is a murder-suicide, and all three are siblings. Offspring of the same parents.

11 x 17 = 187

Poor "8" never looked anything like his parents. He killed "1" and "7" out of jealousy, and then committed suicide knowing he was neither perfect nor prime.

They brought the witness in for a line-up, she stated that it was definitely number four. Due to some confusion this resulted in an acquittal.

That's funny. I come from a family of doctors and we hate lawyers. I don't think you should insult cops or brag about your not-so-impressive lineage. A profession born from and bathed in the flaws of human society...In my humble opinion, of course.


Btw, anyone remember the Samuel L Jackson movie called 187? I dunno about you guys, but that's where I learned my homicide lingo.

"1....7........8. It all adds up. This was a calculated hit. We've had a number of these lately. Thirteen just this month in addition to these three. Sad...they just keep multiplying."

Actually the name of the song is "Deep Cover". It was on the soundtrack for the movie of the same name starring Laurence Fishburne and Jeff Goldblum.

this is important! someone is WRONG on the internet!

1 is no longer called prime, so that we dont have to qualify the fundamental theorem of arithmetic, which states that all integers have exactly one prime decomposition.

e.g.:
12 = 3 * 2 * 2

if 1 were prime, (3*2*2*1) would also work, and (3*2*2*1*1), etc.
