Cool Funny t-shirt Designs

Funny T-shirt Designs

I've scoured the internet and thousands of shirts later, these are some of the best cool and/or funny t-shirts I've found. Some deciding factors are message, theme, number of colors, color choice, complexity, center of interest, size, and print technique. Or we could not over-analyze them and just have fun.

It's an old clumsy arguing tactic...

Person B: "I am Scottish, and I don't drink ale."

Best Monkey T-shirts

There are a lot of monkey shirts on the internet. I've seen hundreds at least, but maybe a couple thousand. Most were okay, but it takes more than a fuzzy head and long tail to make my list.

Monkey Chandelier from Headlineshirts.com. An escaped chimp loose in a mansion? Philanthropist zookeeper? Or simply a successful bachelor party? Don't know, but this screams awesome. Simple funny idea, two-colors on a red/purple tee.

why so curious george joker monkey

Why so Curious? Great Threadless tee by artist Andy Hunt. If you don't know what this is, it's a mix-mash of Curious George and The Joker (as portrayed by Heath Ledger in the movie "The Dark Knight"). Excellent idea and artwork. Nice bright colors.

monkey propeller beanie cap
monkey propeller beanie cap

My favorite monkey tee, though being the designer I couldn't be more biased. A baby chimp with a propeller beanie. I just combined two great things, monkey and toys. If I was smart, I'd design all of my shirts like that. Chimps + money, apes + girls, baboons + food, etc. teetower.com

little monkey big brother
little monkey big brother

Big brother to be by specialtee at Zazzle. In my mind, this would only be awesome on an adult who is not expecting a little brother. There's not a woman alive who wouldn't be attracted to a guy wearing this shirt.

One Smart Monkey from Icebergtees.com. To earn a grape, Fido explains partial derivatives of vector-valued functions. Great NASA-lookin chimp. I love when artists can pull off partial fade-away illustrations. Clean, simple one color on gray.

Triumph United from MMA Warehouse. Thai script, smoking monkey, and Muay Thai kickboxing. That's enough to make most lists. Fortunately the graphic is awesome too. I have no idea what the Thai text says and it doesn't even matter. Great one color white graphic on black tee.

"Cold War Vet". Another great white on black one, this from Headlineshirts.com. Added to my list now is Monkeys + space.

Velociraptor T-shirts

These are some of the best velociraptor tees I've come across online. Quick facts: Velociraptor means "swift seizer" or "speedy thief" depending on the source. They had feathers. Yep, feathers. Their fossils have been found in Mongolia, Russia, and China (guess where they found the Utahraptor?). They were the size of turkeys, though the Utahraptors were the size of Grizzlys. Either way, they were vicious. Their teeth were more strongly serrated on the back edge than the front—likely to improve ability to catch and hold fast-moving prey. Their enlarged middle claw (they had 3) could be 2 1/2- 3 1/2 inches long and that was their can-opener. To add to the fun, we think they could have run up to 40 mph.

If civilians were fleeing for their lives from raptors in the streets below, what would you throw down?

  • Words of encouragement
  • Bottles of urine. It worked in that movie
  • Rubix Cubes
  • None of the above. I'd get my camcorder and make some popcorn
