Really, Inconceivable, why do you say that?

It's a quote from the movie.
Yep, well I never saw the movie. Sorry, I don't find it amusing. NOt on a plane, not in these times. Just goes to show you, they will let anyone wearing anything on a plane these days. It is in very poor taste.
Even if I didn't know the movie I think I'd realize it was some kind of pop culture quote.
Not anymore....at least to me. There is nothing that surprises me about the stupidity of some people these days.
Really, don't know why.
Wait, so I am stupid now. got it.
You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means
I don't really look that closely at people's shirts. I've heard of the movie so I get this one, but even if not it's just a slogan on a shirt. So what?
But I don't see why they couldn't let him wear it inside out thou.
I love that movie so I would have thought the shirt was rather amusing, but I guess with how everything in the world is today I can understand why it could make someone uncomfortable.
What does that even mean? That because it is, per you, a "pop culture classic", that everyone SHOULD be familiar with it, whether or not they've seen the movie? I guess I'm just not up on pop culture, because I would have no idea what it meant.
I also don't get where you get the impression that a mountain was made out of a molehill. All we have from the story is that the shirt wearer is relaying what the flight attendant supposedly said, and that she was relaying what the passengers supposedly said to her. The fact that she never returned with another shirt, and despite the fact that he continued to wear it, it appears no passengers had a stroke, heart attack, or panic attack, or refused to fly with the wearer, so I'm guessing that means no one was overly distraught about it. They probably just didn't "get" the T-shirt and simply brought it to the attention of the flight attendant.
This is much ado about nothing, and I think it's the wearer who is more into making a mountain out of a molehill, because everything makes "news" these days; this is his 15 minutes of fame. Who put the story out? Sounds like HE did.
Yeah, it all sounds so spontaneous. I'd be willing to bet it was all concocted ahead of time. Either he knew someone would question it, or he just created the story. __________________
DH has that shirt- though the " name tag" is smaller- it's the size of the actual sticky tags - about 3"x5". DH has worn that shirt on an airplane multiple times, never had any issues, though now I've probably jinxed that!!
They have a very similar one at Kohl's. The logo is smaller and on the chest where a name tag would be.
The guy should've responded "As you wish!" And whipped it off!
As to the op, I'd love that shirt. But I think wearing it on a plane probably not the best idea.
I will never love again!
I bought one for my DH a few years ago too. Love that shirt. Always a conservation starter with fans.
Ha ha ha.
I swear, I saw a sign in a restaurant the other day advertising a BMT sandwich, and all I could think of was a bacon, mutton and tomato.
When the mutton is nice and lean. It's so perky. I love that.
My husband has that shirt and we randomly quote that movie all the time so we would have laughed and thought nothing of it.
