Can't remember where I heard this but I love it:

"Good things may come in small packages, but large packages hold more." :D

A friend of mine actually owns a shirt (and has worn it in Vegas) :

"Which way to the buffet?"

and I used to have a sticker on the back window of my car that said:

"I'M the fat lady and I ain't singing shit!"

It was always funny to see people squinting and then laughing after reading it while sitting in traffic. It also meant my sister never wanted to borrow my car :happy: I would totally wear it if it was made into a shirt!

There was a t-shirt the Body Shop in Australia put out years ago that said something along the lines of:

"6 women in the world are supermodels, the other 6 billion are not"

I remember that line - a friend of ours has a poster of it. And printing t-shirts (and other easily sloganed products) really isn't that hard to do. Two left-brained folks from Baton Rouge borrowed a phrase that appeared on a banner at the 1999 Boston convention and embarked on a decade-long run of imprinted items that continues today. So if you've got a good idea, go for it!

I've always thought it would be funny to get one of those old t-shirts that say "No fat chicks!" and cross out the "No" and write over it "Yes" or "Hellz yeah"

XOXO for your XXXXL


I really, really like this one.

Even XOXO for XXXL works.

I've actually given this some thought. What I'd like on a T-shirt is a nice, highly artistic rendering of a very large lady. Something on the order of one of the drawings by our friend PeterB -

http://www.rundekunst.de/

No slogan at all - just a subtle way of letting any interested party know that I'm more than OK with the way she looks. Once the ice is broken, I can supply the words myself.

For those days when I'm feeling confrontational, I'd love to put a reproduction of a 1965 cover of Ralph Ginzburg's Fact magazine on a T-shirt. It's a Herb Lubalin illustration, with text reading: "Obesity. It's incurable - so relax and enjoy it." That's as true today as it was in '65, and just as likely to piss people off. I can't link to it directly, but you can see it here (scroll down a little, it's the third cover from the top) -

Is there anyone in this forum who understands the Byzantine complexities of modern copyright law well enough to know if this image has entered the public domain?

i love herb lubalin's type design. i made a tee for myself based on his mother&child design with super inside of the odalisque. but i couldn't find a way to incorporate that beautiful ampersand into it :(

don't you have to be 50 yrs out for a copywrite to expire? i'm not sure anymore. and i'm not sure if the time spand is the for V/A as it is for a novel. but you can make that tee for yourself and your friends as long as you don't sell it. so if you want one you can still have it.
