If you had to wear a t-shirt that had your personal motto on it, what would it read?

“Great Question” (5points)

Imagine, further, if you had to wear your personally reflective t-shirt for a period of say, 40 days and nights for any reason whatsoever, also.

I have many personal creations to display. But one of my current favorites is “Wake Up and Smell The Repression”. And, essentially, one could replace the last word in that phrase with basicly anything that’s appropriately fitting. Yep.

Neizvestnaya's avatar

I can only give 1 lurve to @tinyfaery‘s T-shirt but I’d consider getting one made up on!

@blueroses lurve for recognizing that! : )

I have a tee-shirt that has a photo of a highway sign that reads:


But being as I live in NY, it doesn’t really work for me. But when I saw it in a mall in the NJ town of PissTheCatAway one day, I had to buy it :-p

Why is this question so hard!? :(
Maybe “My pimp hand is mighty strong.”
”^^ Facebook stalker.”
Or… This. Hahahaha.

Mantralantis's avatar

@AshLeigh – About ‘this’ one. Um…that would be a horrible thing to present to someone or wear for that matter. Your twisted girl.

…And a few of YOU others, as well. Twisted. But somewhat amusing.

AshLeigh's avatar

@Mantralantis, my mother thinks so too. ;)
But it was a joke. I wasn’t being serious. Chill, Bro.

Mantralantis's avatar

Um, yes. That was my point…yours had none…apparently. Get some understanding, please.

AshLeigh's avatar

@Mantralantis, I have understanding. It’s just difficult to be able to tell if people are angry, or if they’re just kidding around. Believe me, I fully understand. No need to be rude, about a simple joke. If it offends you, I’m terribly sorry.
So, I’m twisted. Welcome to Fluther.

Mantralantis's avatar

@RareDenver—Now I know your unbelievable. ( seven great answers for your unbelievable comment! 8^P) There is something wrong with that DISbelief.

abbynormal's avatar

“Classy Bitch”

Mantralantis's avatar

@AshLeigh – I wasn’t angry. I was disappointed and meaning not to be rude. There’s a difference. And if your having difficulty understanding if someone is angry or not, as you’ve said…that does mean you don’t…understand something.

Lastly, your right. There’s nothing wrong being a bit twisted. No hard feelings.

Good night, Ash.

Mantralantis's avatar

Since I couldn’t edit ‘your’ for ‘you’re’ in that last comment of mine it will just have to stay that way I suppose. I can’t correct something if I’m not able too, grammar patrol.

gailcalled's avatar

^^Just a private suggestion. And it’s not grammar; it’s usage.

AshLeigh's avatar

@Mantralantis, that’s not misunderstanding. That’s just not knowing someones tone when it’s in writing, so it’s easy to think someone is being mean, when they are in fact, only joking. :)

Mantralantis's avatar

@gailcalled – Oh, Gail, Gail, Gail…PLEASE for the love of God! Go knit some verbs for someone who cares. And must you continue to not use a PM everytime to respectfully correct me? I wouldn’t mind it so much and I’d probably be more agreeable. Because it’s getting very continually annoying to the point that you will (and have already) bring or brought every past victim into the grammar/usage discussion just so they can bash upon me, or any new member, because they probably received the same treatment then and will wrongfully decide to derail my interests. People make simple mistakes. I know this site has rules, but it makes no sense to have it look notorious by those that continue to moderate and abuse its rules, thinking its power. I’m not trying to write a novel here. And the whole “then go to another site” is just an equally disrespectful show of that abused power. There are no real excuses from me – I’m human. Now, I’ve said enough. Maybe its time you did too.

gailcalled's avatar

^^ That would require a very large T-shirt.

zensky's avatar

@Mantralantis I can’t correct something if I’m not able too, grammar patrol.

To, not too.

But to be fair – Gail dear, it would be a funny T-shirt, nein?

Gail, Gail, Gail – go knit some verbs for someone who cares.

I loled.

Blueroses's avatar

Oh, for fuck’s sake.
That’s actually going on my t-shirt

Blackberry's avatar

Also: Bawls.

Mantralantis's avatar

@gailcalled – Actually, that’s quite funny. I CAN take that!

@zensky – Your absolutely right. But does it very seriously need to be mentioned. Probably not. You’ll need more Zen for me to buckle away from this site.

zensky's avatar

@Mantralantis—You’ve been here all of two weeks. Welcome to Fluther – it’s good to have a sense of humour – and I wouldn’t dream of you leaving on account of a little anal-grammarness. And it’s still you’re, not your.

Mantralantis's avatar

@zensky – Well, that’s good to read. But still more Zen, not ‘contend’. Yep.

Mantralantis's avatar

All this grammar shit takes away from the real pleasure of this site, anyway – the many interesting questions and their equally interesting answers. And if you are to tell me that most (the assumption from grammar fetishers) of it is not understandable, then I’ll tell you that you, yourself, need to go back to school. Because I can understand most. And I don’t want to have to say that to anyone. Really, I sincerely don’t. So…can we please just stick to the questions and only the questions…for at least a few days (eternity is fine with me, yeps, just saying)

Please, Be Good…as I should.



Mantralantis's avatar

@MRSHINYSHOES – Now that’s really funny. Good one, Mr.Shoes.

Someone told me about a t-shirt reportedly seen worn by a 20-something young woman that said “Cougar in Training”. I replied that I should have one made that said “Cougar Trainer”. After my wife elbowed me in the gut, I decided it should say “Cougar Trainer…RETIRED!”

“I enjoy poetry, long walks on the beach and poking dead things with sticks”. This is an actual t-shirt by the way, my dad found it for me. What makes it funny is because it’s kind of true. :)
