Prior to getting married, had one that said on the front "To all you virgins" and on the back "Thanks for nothing."

My current one is "Just stand"

I like the t-shirt my wife got me awhile back.



That and I have an old school RATM t-shirt that I like.

I have a shirt my cousin got me from Australia that says, "How much can a koala bear".

It has a koala with a drink in one hand, a bong in the other and a lady koala giving him a BJ.

I am not sure where it is but if I find it I will post a pic.

That belt you're sporting reveals a heretofore unexhibited fey sense of fashion.*























*And yeah, I know that's not you in the picture. At this point in your retirement, your man boobs are undoubtedly bigger than hers.

Since I never see either word in print and they're pronounced identically, my first thought was you were talking about the fay - supernatural forest folk like sprites, fairies, etc. Since I'm a bit familiar with "FAY" fashion (from watching endless hours of fantasy programming) I didn't see the connection. So I cut/pasted the word FEY to see what it meant.

This is where it gets a little confusing. There seem to be three possible meanings none of which seems to relate to the others.

"
  1. giving an impression of vague unworldliness.
    "his mother was a strange, fey woman"
    • having supernatural powers of clairvoyance.
    • Scottish
      fated to die or at the point of death.
      "now he is fey, he sees his own death, and I see it too"
" (the quote tag choked on something in the copied text)

If I now had to choose, I'd have to go with the first one. Is that what you meant?

That's how I've heard "fey" used .... in reference to witch's/witchcraft.

I've never actually seen "fay" used other then as a name that I can recall.


And on-topic: (my shirt is grey)
