Obnoxious Back to School Tees...Hot or Not?

When it comes to back-to-school shopping for my son, I’ve noticed four different types of tees aside from the solids and stripes variety.  There’s the sporty kind with football, BMX and baseball graphics.  Then there’s the music tees with electric guitars and headphones, my personal fave.  Then comes the pop culture and licensed tees with pictures of Phineas and Ferb and SpongeBob.  And finally, there’s the obnoxious back-to-school tees, otherwise known as “humorous tees.”

Maybe I don’t have a sense of humor, but what’s funny about a shirt that says “Allergic to School” or “Homework is not in my vocabulary”?  Yes, school isn’t always cool but do I really want to send a message to my kid that school’s a joke?  That it’s OK skip school or homework?  Sorry, but nope.  Education is important to me, and I want it to be important to my kids.

Instead, how about a funny shirt that says something like “You can’t spell school without cool.”  I know, it doesn’t have quite the same ring to it, but isn’t it sending a better message?

What do you think?  Would you let your son wear one of these back-to-school tees or do you think they’re obnoxious?  Sound off in the comments below.
