One of the numerous catalogues that arrive in the mail at this time of year was the Rosie Nieper T-shirt catalogue. Flicking through the pages made me wonder if all of civilisation’s accumulated wisdom has been encapsulated on T-shirt slogans. Here are some examples:
Out of my mind (back in 5 mins)
I’m not 40. I’m 18 with 22 years of experience
Make tea, not war
Dad. n. A man with pictures in his wallet where his money used to be
Let us remember that in this RICH and BEAUTIFUL world there are only 2 things worth living for — LOVE AND HAPPINESS*
*Oh, OK, and maybe CHOCOLATE
Forbidden fruit makes great jam
"Not a morning person" doesn’t even BEGIN to describe it
Hail to the mocha latte
Boys are strong. Bury them deep
I’m only wearing black until they make something darker
There are other,
more risque, ruder, options which I’m not writing here but are viewable at the Rosie Nieper site.
Can you come up with a slogan that sums up life more pithily than any of the above?
