Walking through the high street at 3pm today, I saw a young man with this written on his T-shirt:

Tell your tits to stop staring at me

AIBU to ask you whether you find this:

1. funny

2. grim

or something else?

Grim, offensieve and just... urgh.

I suspect the last person he had sex with was his hand. Ignore.

Boring and unimaginative.

Yeah, might as well wear one with "I am a bit of a tosser" on it and have done.

It would raise a smile if I saw it in a shop (same with the 'Read this whilst I check out your tits' one), but I can't understand why you'd want to buy one?

Surely after wearing it for more than...5 would get a bit boring?

My reaction was one of taken aback surprise.

I also find the sentiment conveyed a bit aggressive if I'm honest.

I wonder what possesses men to don this type of garb. What's the point? It's hardly going to make him popular with the girls. To impress his mates? Is it fashionable? Is it supposed to be funny? Does he want to shock people?

Am a bit confused

Sad and boring. Speaks of a man who has very rarely had the opportunity to see a real live pair of "tits". Probably lives with his mum?

FreudianSlipper Fri 05-Aug-11 16:05:27


and a little sad that a man would think it is amusing to wear

i think it's quite funny.

Tells you a lot about the guy wearing it!

Sardine I don't think most people wear tshirts to make wider existential statements. He probably just looked at in a shop, sniggered a bit, bought it, and threw it on today because it was clean.

Bad taste, absolutely. But then my female, feminist friend who has a PhD once bought me a tshirt that said, right over the breasts, 'If only my brain were this big'.

Go figure.

That's as bad as this one I saw on a boy of approxiametly 12-13 at flamingoland "A blow job is better than no job"

catgirl1976 Fri 05-Aug-11 16:14:59

Eeeeewww what kind of people would allow a 12 year old to wear that?

SardineQueen Fri 05-Aug-11 16:16:14

I could sort of see it if he was out with a group of mates going for a drink, in a cheery sort of way.

This bloke was by himself at 3pm in the shopping centre and looked deeply unfriendly.

It was a bit odd.

<Wonders whether to admit that DH has one with a "man" stick figure with the head missing, which says "man needs head" underneath... Which he is banned from wearing grin>

SardineQueen Fri 05-Aug-11 16:16:56

"A blow job is better than no job"

I don't get it?

that is horrible

the tits starts one is just stupid but a 12 year old wearing that is horrible (even on an adult its pathetic)

MoominsAreScary Fri 05-Aug-11 16:18:16

I think it's funny!

TheMagnificentBathykolpian Fri 05-Aug-11 16:19:13

It's sad and the blow job one is disgusting. On atwelve year old? shock My eldest son is 12 and no way on earth would I buy him that, or allow him to keep it if he got it himself/it was given to him. Straight in the bin!

michelleseashell Fri 05-Aug-11 16:21:37

I'd think he was a bit of a moron but I wouldn't be in the least bit offended. Can't bear slogan t shirts. Might as well wear one that says 'My t shirt has a sense of humour so I don't have to!!!' Just piss off mate. Bet you have kooky posters on your walls and eat crisps for breakfast.

Where I used to teach a man used to pick his son up quite regularly with a t shirt on that had an arrow pointing up with the slogan 'the man' and an arrow pointing down with the slogan 'the legend.' I always thought it was a bit odd picking up his nursery aged child in that, particularly as he was such a gentle soul, and not the type at all that you might expect to like that sort of thing.
