Saturday Night and Looking for Trouble

Yes, I realize that it's Monday (oh boy, do I know it's monday).  But on Saturday night my wife left me to my own devices while she went over to her mother's house.  So I came up with this: http://dowling.lazarusid.com/node/19

I'm sorry, I'm slow, I don't get the picture.  I know what the quote means in context, but I can't relate that to the picture, and I can't tell if you mean the picture to be in or out of context w/ the quote.

I guess I am one of the sick people here.

What would brothers do with each other?

Hint: most people find it gross, but not if you are one of the rare 2% to 10% ...

That doesn't fit, the quote is "did it _for_" not _to_

What does the quote mean?? And what's up with putting stupid Bible quotes on a t-shirt?

Jesus praised some for helping him and blamed others for not helping him, when he was sick, hungry, etc.

Turned out it's not about helping HIM, but helping others.

As for why putting it on a t-shirt, maybe sillyness?

Yes, thank you Rick for explaining the obvious.  There's a lot of that going on today.  "Cheers" is clearly an idiot if he can't figure out what the quote means - it's very straightforward.

Still waiting for Clay to explain WTF it's a picture of...

Yes, thank you, wSV for explaining the blindingly obvious, there's been a lot of that going on today.

Except in this case, it's hardly obvious.  Soldiers with a prisoner was the most likely thing I could think of, but it's far from clear that the burly guys are soldiers.  The distinct black line on the "prisoner" looks a bit like a blindfold, but again, it's not clear.  In any case, Clay's statement that the design would get him into trouble means that there should be a more obvious "AHA!" explanation of what it is.

yes, well I think youve proven that its a little too subtle to be understood by idiots.

perhaps he should look at adding a big neon sign along the top flashing in red and saying something like:

"GOD HATES IT WHEN YOU SUPPORT TORTURE"

Now that's a shirt I'd buy.  I still can't figure out why it'd cause him to be hated...

maybe he could use a picture of a soldier slicing a cats tummy open with the caption:

"I IZ INOSENT?"

Sorry I didn't reply to you Ward, I was offline until now.  It is a picture of two soldiers moving a prisoner at Guantanamo Bay.  I also think that you've answered my questions about needing to improve the clarity of the picture.

Cheers is just trying to cause trouble.

As for the shirt getting me in trouble, I work in a backwards hickish office in a backwards hick town.  The owner of this company thinks W is the second coming.  Very good chance I'd get fired for wearing that shirt even on a casual friday.  Of course, I rarely wear shirts with any lettering on them at all to the office on Friday.  The closest I'll come is a red cross shirt.
