"What I have to do, I have to catch everybody if they start to go over the cliff— I mean if they're running and they don't look where they're going I have to come out from somewhere and catch them. That's all I'd do all day. I'd just be the catcher in the rye and all. I know it's crazy, but that's the only thing I'd really like to be. I know it's crazy."

I love it - he is the cutest rye I've ever seen!

Centered could be easily done...

Catcher in the rye is my favourite novel of all time, and I like the play on words. I don't think I'd get it without the title of the shirt though.

Ugh... I did not like that book. It seemed so pointless.

brownstar

How was it pointless? What is the point of fiction? Is it to evoke emotion? Is it to cause one to question their views on life?

Seriously, fuck the younger generation. lol. Sorry a book's plot isn't spoon fed to you.

I'm not really a fan of the style and placement of the pun, but i like the pun a lot. I'd like it even more if it was a just a bigger picture of a rye break with a baseball catcher either poking out of the top or looking straight at the viewer of the tee in the middle of the bread loaf.

Thank you for all of the nice comments! I know puns are not always super popular around here, but I just couldn't resist!

And who doesn't have an Aunt or Grandma with that tablecloth? Ahhh... nostalgia... tee-hee

Lol! EVERYONE should have that tablecloth! It's a classic!

I really liked the book. A lot. And I kind of don't feel this does it justice.

I don't know that it's supposed to necessarily... But somehow I just don't like this. D:

It's me, though, not the design.

crunchygirl

Agh! Ha ha ha!

I love a good visual pun. Adorably done.

I have that tablecloth too, btw.

Too bad it looks like WHEAT BREAD!

Of course I'm biased, but I prefer the more subtle puns myself. I find the ones I tend to like on this website are those that aren't hitting you over the head.

For me, it's o.k. if it takes a second for someone to figure it out, that's part of the fun of wearing a fun T-shirt that you want people to notice...

themelville

i didn't get it but i'm terrible at noticing puns and such. to me thought, the book was so serious and this is so humous, it just doesn't fit to me
