About this T-Shirt

This is a stupid phrase,
I know I use it all the time to confuse and annoy children.
It was originally a throw away comment off a George Carlin record from the early 70’s referring to phrases you don’t hear much.
This got me thinking along the lines of Lucan’s “Television, The Drug Of The Nation” Challenge.
Back before Reality TV became so popular back in the dark and damp 1970’s there were television shows that were so truly pathetic and painful that they make today’s television delightful.
These shows, predominantly from the US were called Situation Comedies or SitCom’s.
These awful monstrosities often had an annoying character that had a catch phrase. The more popular the show became, the more that show depended on the Character’s catch phrase to hold the show together or even finish the episode off.
Examples include:
Welcome Back Kotter: “ Wha?”,
“Mister Kot-tieyer” “Ooh Ooh!” (Wave hand like a school child)

Happy Days “Heyyyy!”“Coooool!”Different Strokes “What choo talking about Willis?”

The Good Times “Dyn-O-Mite”

The Poms were just as guilty with

Some Mothers Do ’Ave ’Em. “ Oh Betty”
or
On the Buses “I’ll get you Butler”

These catch phrases would be repeated all over the school yard and work place by unoriginal wags looking for a cheap laugh.
So I made this Tee Shirt in the hope if this kind of television has a resurgence- and mark my words it will again one day. I’m at least on the front foot for some quick sales.
