    I'm planning to run the Minnesota Half Marathon barefoot in early August. I've always wanted to wear one of those t-shirts with a funny saying on the back for a race. I think I want to make an iron-on for the back of my BRS t-shirt. So far people have suggested the following lines,


    "Have you seen my shoes?"


    "My other shoes are also missing."


    Anyone else got any funny lines I could borrow?


    EDIT by TJ: Check out the front page for a list of all the funny lines we have come up with since SP started this thread. It's quite funny when you read them all together: http://www.barefootrunners.org/build2/story/funny-lines-back-my-tee-shirt

    I'm considering that too. 

    I'm considering that too. Although I'm always trying to talk to a lot of people about barefooting at these events, and funny shirts generate more interest.

    Good point TJ.

    It would be nice if the BRS shirts said something on the back already. From the back right now I just look like a barefoot dude in a grey shirt.

    I'll have to think of something too, have to work on getting a shirt ordered first though. What's the ship time usually? I've got time before the MN meet up, no?

    Mine shipped in about 3

    Mine shipped in about 3 days. Not long at all. You'll be fine Zum.

    I was going to do an iron-on for the back. They make some pretty decent ones now, but they don't sell single sheets. Let me know if you want to go in on some iron-on paper.

    Will do! I'll get crackin on

    Will do! I'll get crackin on it after we get back from vacay...headed to Elbow Lake for a week, near Itasca State Park :) Can't wait! Morning the fact that I can't do my usual runs up there though (we go every year and I've got my routes all mapped out...sigh, they're gravel though so at least I won't have to mess around with that until next year ;) )

    The haiku would something like this, right?



    God made my feet

    Chinese children made your shoes

    I sleep well, and you?





    I think cool funny lines on the back of the shirts is a great idea. Funny seems to be the better way to get people on our side, rather than harshing them. But, it IS a good harsh. True dat.

    Or maybe a limerick?

    There once was a runner named Pete. Who had foot coffins attached to his feet. He got hurt, threw them off, and said with a scoff, "I'VE HAD IT WITH THIS RUNNING SHOE SHIT (or "sheet" I suppose rhymes better)!"

    Hey, I'm not a poet...

    I'll mess around with the one above....



    Once there was a runner named Pete

    who used to run with shoes on his feet

    One day during a heat

    he tossed the shoes without missing a beat

    and said "Hey, this barefoot thing is kinda neat!"

    A: That's me.
    Q: Were you present when that picture was taken?


    Q: You say that the stairs went down to the basement?
    A: Yes.
    Q: And these stairs, did they go up also?



    Q: Now then, Mrs. Johnson, how was your first marriage terminated?
    A: By death.
    Q: And by whose death was it terminated?



    Q: Do you know how far pregnant you are now?
    A: I'll be three months on March 12th.
    Q: Apparently then, the date of conception was around January 12th?
    A: Yes.
    Q: What were you doing at that time?


    Q: Mrs. Jones, do you believe you are emotionally stable?
    A: I used to be.
    Q: How many times have you committed suicide?
