Today we turn our attention to funny t-shirts. Let me walk you through a world of jokes you won’t understand without my help.
This shirt is funny because the Oregon Trail was a popular game back when computer games were new and “old school.” It was common for characters to die of dysentery in the game, so it’s funny that this shirt resurrects memories of this. Now, if only I could carry all this meat back to the wagon (see what I did there? That was another funny joke from our common experiences with the Oregon Trail game).
This was from a Simpsons episode, so it is funny because it quotes the Simpsons. Since everybody likes the Simpsons, this shirt brings up memories of something we all share and find mutually funny. People who don’t like the Simpsons don’t find this funny, which is funny because these people are left out of the laughter bond we all share through this shirt.
Ha! Look at that. The guy needed a straight piece so he could get a Tetris and get rid of those blocks. The funny thing about the situation is that he got the wrong piece and accidentally put it over the hole. What’s more, the straight piece was next! Crazy, right? He was so close to a high score. You see, it’s funny that two cosmic events aligned to ruin his well-planned stacks of blocks.
