    YES! I love that idea... Along with the earlier one about "Next person who asks
    where my other wheel went...gets a 20" where the sun don't shine!"

    And, um:

    Unicycle: n, (yu-ni-si-kel), - The funny contraption you're staring at.

    Er, I suppose not.

      Take the famous Leonardo da Vinci sketch of the naked man with four arms and
      four legs in a circle. (I believe it was used on a "Balance" shirt some years
      ago - it appears to demonstrate the relative proportions of the arm and leg
      lengths of a man.)

      Delete the bottom two legs, and replace them with a sketch of a unicycle.

      Now you have a sketch of a famous man, on a unicycle, coasting, with the arms
      appearing to wave around everywhere to keep balance.

      Any comments?

      (If anyone actually tries this out, on a t-shirt or otherwise, I would
      appreciate an e-mail telling me how it looks.)

        Real simple:

        One side - picture of a unicycle Other side - "Real men only need one wheel!"

        I'd buy one of those.

          This is my personal favorite too but some might think it too sexist. What do you
          folks here on the mailing list think? Should I poll a bunch of women first, or
          just make up about 3 dozen and bring them to the upcoming NUC? I've finally
          found a shirt shop that will do an order this size.

            Sexist? I don't think anyone would find it offensive. I think your customers
            might be all male unless you made a "Real women..." version, but that doesn't
            make it sexist.

            Besides, if its your favorite, wear it.

              It rubs me the wrong way, not unlike a bad uni seat. Not only do I dislike the
              implied macho attitude, I can't see any redeeming qualities. Plus it excludes
              many of the finest unicyclists.

              I love this idea! I think this could look great if done well.
