Funny T-Shirt Sayings

T-shirts are one of the most commonly worn garments by men, women and children of all ages. Named for their shape being similar to the upper case letter "T," T-shirts have also become a popular way to advertise, inform, express and display just about any message or image you'd like to share. If you enjoy sharing your sense of humour with the world without actually saying a word, funny T-shirts are available in all sizes and colours to help you share the laughter.

Sexist Humor

For those with an uninhibited and risqué sense of humour, hundreds of varieties of racy adult humour jokes are available as funny T-shirt sayings. Some of the T-shirt humour that many have come to know are the "Inspector" gag-gift shirts. They feature funny sayings like "Bikini Inspector," "Rear End Inspector" or "Boob Inspector." Women who aren't offended by jokes that exploit the female figure and undermine female intelligence may like a shirt that reads "I wish these were brains" across the chest. Men who like to express jokes of a crude sexual nature might find humour in "How can I love you if you won't lie down?"

TV & Movie Quotes

Some of the most widely known TV characters, commercial slogans, corporate spokespersons and classic movie quotes also make their way to the front of funny T-shirts. In the 1980s, octogenarian discovery, Clara Peller, ranted, "Where's the beef?" in a series of Wendy's hamburger commercials. According to her August 12, 1987 obituary in The New York Times, her face and catchphrase were printed on thousands of T-shirts and worn by fans nationwide. One funny T-shirt features a picture of a gnome and displays the text, "Say hello to my little friend" --- a line recited by Al Pacino in the film "Scarface." Some T-shirt retailers sell a shirt that says "Natural Redhead" with a picture of legendary hamburger clown, Ronald McDonald.

Society & Politics

Politics and society in general are commonly the brunt of many jokes. Inevitably, social and political humour have made their way into casual apparel as well, and produced a great deal of funny T-shirt sayings. A few good ones include, "There is intelligent life on Earth, but I'm just visiting" and "The secret of success is sincerity. Once you can fake that, you've got it made." Humorous political T-shirt sayings have included, "In America, Anyone Can Be President --- That's One of the Risks You Take" and "Stop repeat offenders. Don't re-elect them!"

Self Ridicule

Making yourself the object of the joke is a safe way to be funny without offending others. Some common T-shirts that make fun of the person wearing them say, "I'm kind of a big deal" or "I'm the person your mother warned you about." Other funny T-shirt sayings are meant to offend in a playful sarcastic manner, such as "I'm not as dumb as you look" and "There is intelligent life on Earth, but I'm just visiting."


If you're looking for funny T-shirt sayings about drinking, beer and alcohol, you'll have plenty of hilarity to choose from. T-shirt designers offer unlimited choices of funny jokes, limericks and one-liners about alcoholic beverages and drunken behaviour. One funny saying about the effects of alcohol that is printed on T-shirts is "One tequila, two tequila, three tequila, floor!" Another funny T-shirt that pokes fun at alcohol is "Work is the curse of the drinking class." A couple of sayings that make light of alcohol abuse include "I'm not as think as you drunk I am" and "I drink in moderation. Moderation is whereever I am."
