Every now and then, we read in the papers or see on TV news that someone was expelled from school or the work force for something that was written on the front or back of a T-shirt they were wearing. I remember reading that one girl got in trouble with her teacher because she wore a shirt that said, “Barbie is a Lesbian.” The Barbie in question was the famous Barbie doll.
For whatever reasons, people today use their T-shirts and tops to advertise all sorts of slogans and messages, not just the names of their favorite team or player.
The Spectator did some research and discovered that since Biblical times, people have worn shirts, togas or animals skins in the past that sent out a clear and loud!
Below are some messages that appeared on shirts, skins, togas or whatever people were wearing. So you see, there’s nothing new under the sun. Take a look!
