ok so this last weekend while I was in Williamsburg, my friends and I were inspired to create our own “ironic t-shirt” line. if these hipsters on the side of the street can make $ with these bogus shirts, then so can we.
so our idea is to pretty much ruin cliches, or popular sayings that frankly we think are stupid or don’t make any sense. so I’m going to share with you some that we came up with. let me know what you think. I’m sure no one will think this is amusing besides my friends and I but that’s ok, they’re just jokes.
so here we go:
Cliche: It is what it is.
Reversal: It is what it isn’t
Cliche: I do what I do.
Reversal: I do what I don’t.
Cliche: Life is About _______
Reversal: Life is About Not Saying What Life is About.
Cliche: There are other fish in the sea.
Reversal: There were never any fish in the sea to begin with.
Cliche: A picture is worth a thousand words.
Reversal: A thousand words is worth a picture.
Cliche: Save the drama for your mama.
Reversal: Your mama saved her drama for me; Your mama gave me her drama.
Cliche: As per usual…
Reversal: As per calm it down.
Cliche: I say tomato, you say tomatoe.
Reversal: I say tomato, you say tomato.
Cliche: Easy, Peasy, Lemon-Squeazy
Reversal: Difficult, Difficult, Lemon-Difficult
Cliche: A penny saved is a penny earned.
Reversal: A penny saved is a penny.
Cliche: Cheap Trick
Reversal: Expensive Illusion
Cliche: No Way Jose
Reversal: Yes Way Joseph
