1) Buy a t-shirt with /To His Coy Mistress/ printed in braille across the chest.
2) Give said shirt to girlfriend.
3) Ask that said girlfriend put on said shirt.
3) Remark "How I love Marvell!".
4) Procede to read shirt.
(Note that the idea stems from a real shirt I have that
has "Microsoft" printed in Braille on the left breast. Note also that I am indeed a male.)
Marvell: To His Coy Mistress
Ah. Nothing to do with superheroes, then. [jutta, Sep 02 2006]
(neilp) that 'do not touch' braille artwork
Tsk, where were you when mrthingy posted that same idea in 2002? [jutta, Sep 03 2006]

Description (displayed with the short name and URL.)
||It'd have to be a pretty big shirt as braille takes up a fair amount of space. A Shakespeare sonnet like 'Let me not to the Marriage of true minds' would fit much better.
||Maybe eeny meenie miney moe?
||Confusing in cold weather, no?
||Me thinks that, although I love the idea, a blind person wouldn't think to "read" the braille on the shirt. So, unless you could see what to read in braille, or you were being groped by a blind braille reader, its application is limited.
||"Hey, there's a typo here. And here."
||reminds me of that 'do not touch' braille artwork.
