I want a shirt that says "Carpe Diem!" I have one, but it's getting real small, and I got it at a second hand store. So it's unlikely I'll find one again. I also want a shirt that has a big smiley face on it. I had one of those too, but someone took it and gave it away. :x RAAAGE! Also, I want a shirt that says "Okay, Seriously, Cheer Up!" And then on the back "The World's an Awesome Place!" or something like that.

My Latin teacher told us that the original intent of "carpe diem" was more to choose or plan the day, and that "rape diem" is a better phrasing in terms of seizing the day. He tried to get that printed on some shirts for the Latin team one year, but apparently it didn't go over too well with the administrators.

Speaking of which, now I kind of want to walk around in a shirt that says "rape diem".

Why not make your own tshirts providing you have the images you want on them?

As a matter of fact, I do make my own T-shirts. With a bleach pen. But I think some shirt ideas would do better if done all officially and whatnot. Also, I can't find a lot of blank shirts to use.

EDIT: And aren't those custom shirt sites real expensive?

We've got a custom shirt place in town, so people are always wearing their own stuff. None of it's super-spectacular-amazing, but it gets the job done.

I used to have shirt with lots of words on them, so people would always stop me to read them. This gets annoying after a while. I think the only thing I'd want now is a shirt saying, "Do Not Read."

The literal meaning is to pluck as if grabbing fruit from a tree. Go figure.

I think I'd like one that says "MayI have your number?" In latin. Been too many years to remember quite how to say that.

"Drink water or DIE" - something I saw posted above the free water booth at the state fair years ago. I've wanted it on a shirt ever since.

And I've always, always wanted a shirt with a giant interrobang on the front.

Surely you'd not need any money as it they would have to give you a dollar as well so you might as well avoid an exchange and just keep walking....

I am starting a webcomic and since the main character looks very much like me, I want to have a very dark gray T-Shirt with her on it below the 'Integer Life' Text saying 'Recursion rocks!'. On this picture, she'd wear exactly the same design on her dark t-shirt. :D

My sister saw a shirt one, described it to me, and I have wanted it ever since:
I keep wearing quotes from obscure books and films in the hope that, one day, someone will recognise them and I will find my soulmate


Another T-shirt I saw once started off with the title "Why men stare at breasts" and proceded to give a small essay detailing the reasons. The text got smaller and smaller towards the area of nipples and then larger as the text went away. It had the fascinating effect of entrancing any guy who started reading it, leaving them sqinting and slowly leaning closer and closer to t-shirt to read it.
If I were a girl, that's definately the kind of humour I'd have.
