A Thanksgiving Day collab with my Brother-in-Law, who works with missionaries.

Yes, my entire family has a bit of a macabre sense of humor.

As a missionary, I'd love to wear this shirt!

I'm willing to guess it was the reference to cannibalism.

Actually, it was because of potential racial sensibilities, not because of cannibalism (my earlier shirt that printed was based on the Donner Party and cannibalism). I didn't even consider that, but I understand how some might make that connection.

Que sera.

I was thinking that the Donner Party shirt was a little more obscure in terms of it's cannibalism reference, while this one was much more in your face about it.

But I can see the other issue as well.

This deserves more than just a "No.". Anything from "Cannibalism is illegal." to "We don't want religious backlash."

Good job pushing boundaries.
