Pooped!

Yesterday Sally and I went to a Labor Day sale at a local store. While poking around the racks I saw a group of teenage girls discussing a potential purchase. One of the girls was wearing a black t-shirt that said this:

While I wasn't offended — it was kind of funny — I thought of how other people might react. I know it’s a joke, but that kind of toilet humor is lowbrow, you know? I think of fart, pee-pee and poo-poo jokes as being about the intellectual level of a first grader. My grandkids think things like that are funny, and that’s a good indicator for me.

So I thought, wish I had an answer t-shirt. What if I could design a shirt that would change its message. Maybe I could send a text from my phone to a receptor in my shirt that would put a message on it. If I’d had that ability — and what the hell, if I could figure out how to make it I’d probably try to patent it — I might have answered her with this shirt:

I admit it’s no snappy comeback.  I’ll have to work on that part of my idea.

Stacy, sorry. I just made it up for the purposes of this post.

But if you want to take the idea to a t-shirt shop and have one made, be my guest.
