A T shirt caught my eye this morning...in a store....all Christmassy and all...

it read:

DEAR SANTA
DEFINE GOOD

I smiled. Then got to thinking about humour....oh ok you darlings in the States...humor. My brother and I share a great love of "The Far Side"...can remember a day when we showed a book of those cartoons to our father...page after page after page without so much as a glimmer of a smile. One man's meat etc....

The original "The Odd Couple" had me in stitches...

This funny business is so personal isn't it!

Anything funny (iyo Wink ) caught your eye recently?

(I've only one word-T shirt...it reads "so many books, so little time")

That is funny Madame. Bryan has a t shirt with a picture of Elvis on and the words He's dead, get over it. I've hidden it this week it so he doesn't take it on holiday with us.

Barbara, you're soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo mean Wink

Word Tshirts are amazing things....most I see and think either "nope, a zillion $s wouldn't have me wearing that" or "corny"....however some, like Mr Bryan's ...and dare I say...my book one....are worth much more than a second glance...

hugs and humour....such a pair don't ya reckon....

whatever you celebrate at this time...be it a traditional celebration or something a little other....may it be coated in hugs and humour and love...that I wish you all....

I tell you what WILL NOT be funny...if my puddings have had a dose of too much sun...they were outside to dry...and in the "am still getting used to being in not-cold weather" have left them outside....usually they then come and reside in the house...fingers crossed...

A teeshirt spied in a window of a gift shop in the middle of Nowhere, Arkansas:

KEEP HIKING, I HEAR BANJO MUSIC!

If you cannot laugh at yourself first, you have no right to laugh at all, I suppose!

Jen, that is a good one.

The other day I saw a picture of someone wearing a tee that is definitely not politically correct, but as it was food related, I'll put it here. "Meat is murder. Tasty, tasty murder." It made me wish it came in men's so I could get it for my dad who is a self-labelled meataterian, but alas, I have no idea where it came from.

Steve swears he's getting a T-shirt made with the slogan he read on a bumper sticker in Berkeley: "I was born just fine the first time." I'm sure that will be offensive to some, but if there's anything my baby enjoys it's p*ssing off selected people.

Me, I'm partial to the Pastafarian T of the Flying Spaghetti Monster creating Adam: http://www.venganza.org/

Meanwhile, I love "Define 'good'"!

woodstocker, go here: http://www.threadless.com/product/490/Meat_is_Murder_Tasty_Tasty_Murder

I just recently saw this shirt, because Heather of dooce.com was wearing it. So I checked it out and it brought me to the site I linked to above.

'I've got a black belt... in keeping it real.'

'I'm what Willis was talk'in bout'

'What are you talking about? I am Cananadian'

The first two are in my workout t-shirt collection. The last one, I bought my husband. Everyone thinks he's Canadian, even Canadians.

Usually I am against shirts with sayings and whatnot but, sometimes they really can be funny. Dave Cross has a bit about t-shirt irony and hill folk, it kills me.

The girl who works in the University library near me has a t-shirt that says "librarians are novel lovers".

I'm a sucker for a good pun.

Someone probably knows about this tee-shirt since it was easy to find the quote online:

"Catapultam habeo. Nisi pecuniam omnem mihi dabis, ad caput tuum saxum immane mittam"



I have a catapult. Give me all of your money or I will fling a huge stone at your head.

Deste...it's rather like a Latin "Show me the money!"...I knew a bishop who could converse in Latin....oh oh my! such skills...

I also like this:

Brevis esse latoro obscurus fio -
When I try to be brief, I speak gobbledegook.

Although I've friends who think that both brief and non-brief moi speech is gobbledegook. Wink

Here's what I saw recently on a word-T shirt...


"What if the Hokey Pokey really IS what it's all about???"


Thought provoking and hilarious!!!

Deste, Carina, Madame,

There's a fabulous book I found and captured in the University Library when I was at Leicester called 'Latin for the Illiterati' which has phrases of all kinds in Latin. There's a volume 2, but I am still waiting to get that one. It won't escape me for long tho' I am intent on capturing it from the literary undergrowth.

A more wistful than funny one I liked was Mortuis Libamur - Let us drink to the dead. ...tho' it doesn't say how much to drink to them!!

I've seen a man wearing a T that had the phrase, 'Brad Pitt has my other body' on it. To which my response was, 'Catherine Zeta-Jones has mine and won't give it back'. Crying or Very sad ... I just hope she's taking care of it that's all. I'd hate to get it back all tatty...
