It came to me that geek t-shirts aren’t very well suited for gyms and other places crowded with strong people. Geek t-shirts tend to be a little offensive and aggressive. Here are a few examples:
- “Bow before me, for I am root.” – nobody cares enough to read all of it, and “bow before me” sounds offensive enough.
- “Go away or I will replace you with a very small shell script.” – has the same problem.
- “I see fragged people” – “frag” is not a wide spread word, and it’s often misread as another f-word.
- “I’m blogging this” – “blog” is a very wide spread word, and it can get you killed. Especially by women.
- “You are dumb” – OK, you can ware this, but never ever answer the question “What does this mean?” truthfully.
It’s good to know that sports-ware manufacturers realize this problem. That’s why they make t-shirts with just their brand labels – “Nike”, “Adidas”, “Reebok”, etc.Â These aren’t even real words…

ROFL 2nd one was really funny!
Guess sports ware manufactures want to ‘play’ it safe :lol:
they have the experience :)
Even if that’s true, I always wear my geeky t-shirts no matter where I am. I don’t care if people don’t get it or even if they are offended. They make me feel good and also make everybody else to ponder what they actually mean! Only the chosen ones get the meaning :P
one day you’ll have your butt kicked :)
