Braille Shirt

  [vote for,

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.)

       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.

       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.
