Funny T-Shirts - There's One Just For You

Apr 29, 2008
A well recognized fact is the fantastic growth of t-shirt and this fast development can be accredited to the Navy which began its complete success by the issue of an underwear with a silhouette of a 'T', short sleeves sans a collar as standard kit. As usual, Hollywood accelerated its popularity when icons like Marlon Brando and James Dean showed up in these shirts on the silver screen. The charm of these shirts shot through the roof and you were not considered to be "in" if you didn't sport one. Cool - that's what it was literally and figuratively. And, as the material from which it was manufactured developed in quality compounded with more robust printing techniques, the popularity of the t-shirt gained a phenomenal growth.

There is a saying that every piece of clothing says something about the wearer, but none says as much as what a funny t-shirt does. These shirts can be mildly to extremely funny, they can be totally absurd, funnily outrageous and offensive without being overtly so. The sphere of influence of these t-shirts is so wide that it can be bounded only by the limits of the designers imagination.

On an election year, these shirts can be used as a medium for getting a political message across, poke fun at the candidates or their political ideology. It can be used as supportive medium or as an unkind one. For a fact, New York's Governor Thomas E. Dewey's used one during his 1948 presidential campaign with the message "Dew-IT with Dewey" blazoned across the front. The realm in which these apparels can be used is limited only by the imagination of the designer. Jokes, one liners, whacky pictures and sayings, quotes can all be printed on these funny shirts.

The slogans on the t-shirts may have all those who read it doubled up with laughter. They might even get immobilized; left standing there, just gaping at what's on the t-shirts. Some of the catchphrases might even make them stop and think. And those wacky sayings, quotes or jokes cover just about any subject from A to Z. Just name it, the manufacturers of these funny t-shirts have them. And if there is a catchy phrase of your own that the world to has to be enlightened with, just get on the Internet and with a few mouse clicks and some typing a customized one will be delivered right at your doorstep. Might leave a small hole in the pocket though.

The myriad possible uses of explicit and implicit graphical pictures, different colors and psychedelic auras, bizarre fonts, whacky catchphrases and play on words make the funny t-shirt a versatile medium to expression. The use of these techniques could have one wracked with laughter or might leave one stupefied enough to stand and gape at what is emblazoned in the front. Not to be out done, the back of the t-shirt is also capable of riveting you down.

In a marked opposition to what the people who are looking at the funny t-shirt may think, the wearer of the shirt might even be trying to tell the world what they really are and what they actually think. They can be, in their funny way, used to as a propaganda of the self, and; without prejudice, there probably is a t-shirt with something hilarious on it tailor-made out there just for you.

A person who is wearing a particular t-shirt with a specific phrase on it may be taking a shot at telling the world their impressions and yours may not agree with it. He or she may be using the attire for self aggrandizement. When a father or a mother picks up a t-shirt with a funny message or picture on it, he or she may be subconsciously expressing a thought or opinion. If there isn't a funny t-shirt custom-made just for any one person, it must only be a strange coincidence.

Finally, if it so happens that you find yourself stumped when searching for a t-shirt with something really funny on it, you might come across one which has "I Haven't Anything To Say" blazoned on it.
