Big Time Oops When Slandering the T-shirt Industry

The irony, the irony

I have been posting regarding an article I read last week in The Guardian. The article demands that people stop wearing T-shirts with slogans on them. This gave me the idea to start a new line of ironic T-shirts which would have slogans and other rubbish that oppose slogans on T-shirts. It is yet to be seen whether or not the general public will get on board with such a venture. The more hilarious news that I have not yet shared is that right next to said article is a link for The Guardian's very own line of... yep... T-shirts... and many of them have slogans on them. Please feel free to peruse their online store: Guardian T-Shirt Online Store

For more proof, here is the screen shot I took where you can see both the Freeman article and the ad:

Of course, you may still be able to go to the article itself and see the ad. 

The Facebook page I created (People Fighting Against Words on T-Shirts) has not taken off yet, but I'm still holding out hope. Here is my latest anti slogan T-Shirt slogan T-Shirt; I think it has a ring to it:

The Anti-Slogan T-shirt Campaign

Official Emblem (the "P" is silent)
Yesterday, I posted a response to a Hadley Freeman article in the The Guardian regarding Hadley's demand to end slogan T-shirts. Hadley's bullying could be a result of her ignorance of how important slogans on T-shirts have been to our society. Aside from the many small companies that would be put out of business without the purchase of slogan bearing T-shirts, there have been many good charitable organizations that have spread their message on T-shirts. Similarly, some people may believe that a joke on a T-shirt is, "like walking around all day and telling the same gag over and over," but to the individual who sees the joke on the shirt, it may be the first time he has heard it. It might be the one laugh he gets that day. I don't know about you, but I don't want to trample other people's happiness. That being said, I want people who hate slogan T-shirts to be happy as well, so in the spirit of compromise, I have decided to help Hadley Freeman and others who share her sentiment spread their message. And what better way to campaign for this cause than to have people everywhere showing their support by wearing it on T-shirts? Because when a person decides to become a walking billboard, it shows true belief, and others take notice.

"...but to the individual who sees the joke on the shirt, it may be the first time he has heard it. It might be the one laugh he gets that day."

In an effort to spread the word, I have started a new Facebook page called People Fighting Against Words on T-shirts (P.F.A.W.T.). You and all your friends can go there and see the T-shirt designs as they come out. I also plan to let you design your own anti-slogan T-shirt slogan T-shirts on the new website I will be putting up. Help me start spreading the word by liking the page! Join the anti-slogan T-shirt slogan T-shirt revolution!

Some People Want to Take Away Your Right to Tee Speech!

Hadley Freeman, a fashion columnist with The Guardian, wants you to stop wearing T-shirts with slogans and jokes on them. Quoting some of the more controversial T-shirt slogans, Freeman attempts to build a case against... well, words. Apparently, she finds the entire idea of people having a little fun by saying stupid things with their shirts deplorable. She ends her column with the demand, "So a bit less of the slogans, people, and a bit more of the shhhh."

Freeman has a lot of gall. She works for a large internet publication and her words enjoy wide circulation. What is a guy who works in a factory for 40 hours a week to do when he wants to tell the world of the glories of beer? I know, how about a T-shirt that says, "Save water, drink beer!" The   freedom crushing article is not a complete waste, as it gave me an idea for a T-shirt. It's a good thing I have a direct to garment printer with which to express myself.

Do you understand now, Hadley?
