I'm with Stupid Shirt

Splicing timely t-shirt humour with today's technology

I was musing the other day over t-shirt humour, after noticing an "I'm with stupid" t-shirt. The wearer was walking along with a friend but the arrow of the shirt was pointing the opposite side, thus negating the humour and making the wearer look stupid instead. I have also seen techno-t-shirts that can display a message programmed into a small chip hidden somewhere upon the wearer.

I would like to meld these two ideas, and add a short-range tracking device. Basically the tracking device would be concealed about the wearer’s friend; loved-one or foe. The display would be an arrow that points in the direction of the tracking device, so the message on the t-shirt is kept accurate.

       Those folk should just admit they've missed a bargain and ink a big letter "X" over the "with" on their (one) shirt.   Duh!

       does it have a hidden button?

       so stupid is in the crotch area?

       //so stupid is in the crotch area?//
It depends where you hide the transmitter.
silverstormer, Jan 02 2006

       where you got yours?

       [po] It's not called the dumb stick for nothing.

       If you needed a /tracking device/ then you wouldn't be WITH stupid. Stupid would be trying to get away from you for calling him/her stupid and wanting the whole world to know it and see him/her.(or is the shirt stupid?)

       //[po] It's not called the dumb stick for nothing// not a gear stick then?

       Everybody: "Hit me with your rhythm stick, das ist gut, c'est fantastique!"
DrCurry, Jan 03 2006

       "Hit me! Hit me! Hit meeee!"

       o.k. <WHAM>

       Just place an arrow on the shirt with a rivet. Pivot by hand if they move. Much easier to bake.

       Alternate solution:
<--- I'm handcuffed to stupid.

       So, how do you wear a T shirt in an ironic way?

       "Je suis avec stupide"
neilp, Jan 04 2006

       //I wear mine unironed// HA! (Welcome back [ss], you were missed. Hope all was/is well.)
blissmiss, Jan 04 2006

       They should come with a arrow that spins by hand, then you could take pot-luck as to whom is the idiot.

       I have an "I'm with stupid" t-shirt. Got it in Topman.
shinobi, Jan 05 2006

       How about a low-tech solution: Simply print (you know with dyes and inks) on the t-shirt's fabric   

<-- OR -->
cranford, Jan 05 2006

       Or just remove the arrow.
Worldgineer, Jan 05 2006

       //Welcome back [ss], you were missed. Hope all was/is well// Thanks [bliss], all has been well. I have just been very busy. Hope you're good too.
silverstormer, Jan 05 2006

       and change "with" to "outside".
neelandan, Jan 06 2006

       Maybe, what we need, is "I'm with Stupid" on pants....
sophocles, Jan 07 2006

       Email, ss, it still works. I shall repost on home page.
