I would have also loved, "If you are Scottish law, then I am Mickey Mouse!!" That line always cracks me up, ha ha.

Killer shirt ORabbit! Absolutely well deserved!



Excellent shirt, wasn't the line "If you are a Scottish Lord.."?

I always looked forward to the "Wear this shirt ... Don't wear this shirt ... etc." bit. Sometimes I read the write-ups just for that. Anyone know why it was dropped (other than that it was too taxing on the old creativity muscle)?

Soooooo close. I would have bought this tee were it not for the thing in the bottom right, which I've never heard or seen before. What's wrong with "Phone home," "I hate snakes," or "Where's the beef"? So, so close, but I can't buy it as is.

Again, none of those are things learned, just quotes.

IMHO the design would have been better off with "Why did it have to be snakes?".

To me, "if someone asks if your a god, you say yes" seems more of a general lesson.

Congrats, orabbit! Good use of text and graphics on this design.

I haven't bought a shirt in awhile, but I think I might have to get this.

I think the Jehovah line was a good one to pick, even though it's not as quoted, since it is an actual movie "lesson."

Very nice shirt. And the Jehovah line probably seals the deal for me. Great choice

(and yes, for whoever asked above, it's "if your a Scottish Lord, then I'm mickey mouse")

Where's the crap?

So are Japan, the Phillipines, and Indonesia. But you got the point, didn't you? And re: "If someone asks if you're a god, you say yes.", I had that in a draft, but the quote I went with is shorter and more iconic, IMO.

To be fair land wars in the middle east are amongst the most ill-advised.

It would be impossible to include every 80's lesson on the shirt, but I feel this one was an important one!

Either I've never seen a particular movie from the 90s, or the write-up is just a funny aside.

With that in mind I did indeed come up with a list for the 90s:

1. A déjà vu is usually a glitch.

2. You don't spend six years in Evil Medical School to be called "mister."

3. American components, Russian Components, are all made in Taiwan.

4. The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist.

5. It's all for nothing if you don't have freedom.

6. One of the good things about Paris: lots of girls willing to take their clothes off.

7. There is No need to go heeled to get the bulge on a tub like you.

8. If The Pirates of the Caribbean breaks down, the pirates don't eat the tourists.

9. Stupid is as stupid does.

10. Liver is best served with some fava beans and a nice Chianti.

I totally agree. There should have been a John Hughes quote. "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it."
