English on Shirts in Korea
« on: March 10, 2011, 01:39:45 pm »
Sweet_potato's mention of a funny (if not shocking) shirt seen on a student at school in Korea inspired me to start this thread.  I have noticed several interesting, and linguistically colourful, shirts during my time in Korea.  What kind of English on shirts (or jackets, etc.) have you seen?  No need to comment on bad grammar, culture, or fashion, just relay the best English on shirts you have ever seen. 

When I was teaching kindergarten, a boy came to school in a t-shirt that had in big, bold type:

"My other ride is your mom!"

On a shirt with cutesy bunnies and chicks:

We are so gangsta

HA!
some funny ones I've seen

"Fly to your dreams Teenie Weenie all that bear"

"I <3" next to a drawing of drunken bears with their privates censored.

This one is my favourite! I've been looking for one in Incheon ever since I first heard of its glory.

A very chubby kid in 5th grade who has these cool ice-blue glasses was wearing a t-shirt today that had "SPEX APPEAL" printed on the front. Not ludicrous or offensive, but made me laugh nonetheless. He was really happy when I told him it meant he's good-looking with glasses and ran off to tell everybody else the news  :laugh:

Haha, and going back to Boston wearing it with pride!

On a boy - I'm the star girl!
On a (maybe) middle school - I like abortions

In my first year teaching, one of my 3rd grade girls was wearing a pink t-shirt, it said:

"3 times and go F*%$ yourself!"

I was so shocked, I had to ask my co-teacher if she knew what it meant!

I have a grade 5 girl student who wears a Tshirt with a picture of a motorcycle on it.  It says - "I wish my boyfriend was as dirty as his motorbike".
Be the change you want to see in the world.

@thatkidpercy- that's wonderful!  That just mde my day!  SPEX appeal- we all got it!

Today one of my students walked in for class wearing a very nice tank top that said "I am reading a book".  She was playing a video game and has told me on several occasions that she hates to read.  So I guess the whole situation is funny!

I have a sixth grader who wears a red hoodie with a picture of a Converse high-top on it.  In green lettering above the shoe it says "Cool Refresh" and under the shoe in yellow it has print that says "Rocket Salad".

As offensive as it is, quite hilarious. A cute girl no more than 20 in Seoul wearing:

Niggers love white bitches
"우정이란 오줌을 지리는 것 같다. 다 보일 수 있지만 오직 우리만 진짜 따뜻함을 느낄 수 있다" ('Friendship is like peeing your pants. Everyone can see it, but only you can feel its true warmth.')

A 4th grade girl was wearing a teal shirt that said:
I <3 NEW SHIT

also, a chubby 5th grade boy was wearing this gem on my first day in school in big shiny blue letters on a white shirt:
DON'T SEND MY JOB TO MEXICO
