But....I don't want to wear the red shirt!

Same, and I don't even drink tea. Well, not hot tea. Earl Grey makes a good iced tea you know.

They all wore red on TNG...or more cranberry, to be technical...I guess I should have thought this through a little more.


Thanks for the votes and comments.

Re: Earl Grey


This is so close to being a shirt that I'd love. But it's not quite there. The word "tea" goes first, and the "make it so" part is unnecessary.

You are correct of course, but since I tried to fit it to the "keep calm" form, I made concessions. You can read the cup literally, then the rest and it works a bit better. Maybe?

Trifling. It is funnier because of the red.

Nerd note- Jean-Luc Picard is French. So, this shirt is very inappropriate for this derby.

That said I still love and voted for it.

Thanks for the vote. Patrick Stewart is English, close enough?

Counter nerd-note: If Jean Juc Picard is french, why on earth doesn't he speak with a french accent instead of a mildly english one? hmm?
(that's rhetorical, I know the actor is english)
