Best t-shirt/bumper sticker

bakemom_gw(z6 Central Ohio)November 2, 2007

My favorite was in the waiting room while my daughter was in jaw surgery last year (to extend her chin). Some rough looking guy was there with his crew waiting on a relative. His t-shirt was as follows:

Silence is golden

Duct tape is silver.

What's YOUR favorite? Note - some of the best t-shirts are too filthy for this forum. And, I have a funny list of vanity plates rejected by the State of Ohio from 2000 that are hilarious but also not appropriate. So, we have to narrow it down to the (mostly) clean ones.

Given this limitation - can you meet the challenge?

Still believe the best bumper sticker that I've ever seen was on my beloved first owned car. That big Chevy impala I bought used for $250 in 1970. Yup, I'm that old.

I proudly put it on the bumper of my car after the Nixon/Mcgovern election.

Remember now, I'm a New England girl, proud to say, born and bred in Massachusetts.

OH Ya, the bumper sticker read.

DON'T BLAME ME, I'M FROM MASSACHUSETTS

THAT'S REFERRING TO MA BEING THE ONLY STATE THAT VOTED FOR MCGOVERN.

Teaching at a high school I see lots of t-shirts. Here are a few examples I liked.

"Stop animal testing!" This ones shows a rabbit sitting at a school desk taking a test.

"The voices in my head are saying they don't like you."

"Your girlfriend likes me better."

"Your parents worst nightmare."

"Dyslexics of the world untie"
(Suppposed to be 'unite' for those who don't know what dyslexia is [seeing letter and numbers backwards])

And then there is the one that I have heard of and would like to get for myself:

"I may be fat but you're ugly and I can always lose weight."

My husband's favorite is a T-shirt with the British Union Jack flag on it. Under the flag it says, "GREECE." I wonder how many geographically-challenged people see that shirt and don't get it. . . .

Not funny but important:

With the holiday season starting, I'll share my favorite bumper sticker from the collection I have on a bullitan board in my office:

"Children need your presence not your presents!"

My second favorite is

" Preschool is not BOOT CAMP for Kindergarden"

Great thread, Karen. I have to admit that my favorite t-shirt is this one:

DOES THE NAME PAVLOV RING A BELL?

And to the fellow who asked, they are not a rock band.

My DH and I once wore this shirt to a reunion of my family, it really was fun.

My son had a T shirt with "The Thinker" on it and it read...Quantum Mareriae Materietur marmota Monax si marmota monax Materiam possit Mareriari?
That is Latin .. any guesses on what that means???

Here's a couple of new bumper stickers seen recently:

Unless you're a tatoo get off my A%%.
I guess they don't appreciate people riding their bumper.

If it's tourist season, why can't we shoot them.
I imagine people who live in high tourist areas sometimes feel like this.

My son was inmate of the month.
Sad, but probably true.

I've never seen it on a t-shirt or bumper sticker but my DH's favorite quote is:

proudgm, that is very funny. I might need to find that for my Mom. Or for my FIL. We'd never get him out of it!!

My favorite bumper sticker right now is the one which says Coexist in various letters signifying various religions. I want one. However, my all time favorite are these old late 60's bumper stickers I had - all of them had Laugh In slogans, and there is one "Down With Pants". Part of the old protest sign era thing.

"Beer is proof God loves us and wants us to be Happy". A Ben Franklin quote. And that is a popular t-shirt where I live (my neighborhood is populated with bars and nightclubs)...I get a chuckle when I see it.

GGG, you made me think of ones I remember from the 70s.

'Save a tree, eat a beaver.'

Oddly enough, a bumpersticker/school 'honor student' type still makes me giggle... and exasperated, at the same time.

"Proud Parent of an Honor Student at 'Our Lady of Humility'"

I'll have to cull through my list of other shirts and stickers... I have a habit of finding the filthy ones. ^_^;

Lots of really good ones so far! My favorite though being from Niagara Falls is Proudgm's
"If it's tourist season, why can't we shoot them."
Try to remember- if your in a tourist area and it is morning commute hours and you are driving below the speed limit especially in the left lane because you don't have a clue where you are going, move over and let the local get by you!!
My friend's husband once bought a van that came with the bumper sticker "die yuppie scum" LOL!
I just picked up a beware of sign. Once spring comes I'll put it on the gate. It says, "Beware of attack gardener" : )

OK, not too filthy, I hope:

I had/have a t-shirt with a picture of a sailing boat on it - the thing couldn't fit on my thumb now, but I keep it anyway. It said -

NO FRIGGIN IN THE RIGGIN!

And, having been born and raised in the US Virgin Islands, an old car had vanity plates that read:

TRY A VIRGIN

(My ex's idea - not mine!) The car got stolen, but about 4 years later, they found one of the plates and returned it to me. Something else to add to the clutter around here ...

Caution! I brake for Elves Fairies, Gnomes, Leprechauns, Unicorns, Dragons & other invisible creatures that only i can see

(which I thought was perfect for those times when you just want to get someone off your a$$ who's following too close and need an "excuse" when he actually DOES plow into you after the brake-check.)

I substitute teach in middle school. A jar that sits on the 8th grade English teacher's desk bears this missive:

Well I have three favorites at the moment...

Vegetarian is an Indian word for bad hunter

If God didn't want us to eat animals, he wouldn't have made 'em out of meat.

my favorite is on a t-shirt my daughter wears occasionally.

You're just jealous because the voices are talking to me!

I like to wear a goofy t-shirt every Friday to work (office setting), here are a few of my favorites:

Teamwork: A bunch of people doing what I tell them to do.

(picture of a stick person with their fingers in their ears) caption reads: I think it's funny how you think I'm listening to you.

I used to care, now I take a pill for that.

Got Chocolate?

(in letters that progressively get smaller) By the time you realize this tshirt really doesn't say anything it will be way to late to stop reading.

And your crybaby excuse would be?

You don't have to be crazy to work here. They will train you.

The internet was down so I decide to come outside.
