Strange t-shirts and bumper stickers open thread

I was at Valley West Mall today with my two-year-old, and a woman walks by holding the hand of a girl who looked to be about two or three. The girl had on a white t-shirt that said:


(in training)

I ask you, what kind of person would put that shirt on a young child?

It’s not the strangest t-shirt I’ve ever seen on a child. That would still have to be the toddler’s shirt that said this on the front:

Cardinal Ratzinger fan club

Putting the smackdown on heresy since 1981

And this on the back:

“Truth is not determined by a majority vote.” Cardinal Ratzinger

I am not kidding. That shirt was so bizarre that it prompted me to write a diary at Daily Kos back in the day when I mostly lurked and hardly ever wrote anything for any blog.

Consider this an open thread for discussing the oddest t-shirts or bumper stickers you have seen.

  • 40 year old virgin?

    One of the strangest shirts I’ve ever seen, or owned, was one I had that said “I’d rather be 40 than pregnant” and showed a little sperm swimming into the 0.  

    Now, is that really ever a choice for a woman?  Does a 29 year-old woman who forgot to take her birth control pills ever say “No thanks, I’ll just age 11 years?”

    • that is truly odd

      I don’t even understand what they were getting at in making that shirt. But even more amazing that someone else would buy it and wear it.

      • In my case

        I only paid .49 or so at a thrift store, when I was in high school, to amuse my friends.  

        It’s just strange to think, however, that one person’s ironic shirt is someone else’s statement of self-expression.
