It's true! In addition to yesterday's new shirts (make sure to check them out here), we're unveiling 2 more new shirts right now.

The ideas were so funny, we simply had to make them part of the mental_floss wardrobe. Thanks so much for the ideas.

We're super excited to unveil 2 new t-shirts today! And while we're always excited to show off our new shirts, we're especially giddy today because the ideas come from you. Today's slogans were submitted by our genius readers Ira Wray and Colin Neagle, whose punchlines were so funny we simply had to translate them into shirt form. Ira came up with the Palindromes concept, and Colin's behind the Constitution one. If you'd like one for yourself, they're on sale here at the mental_floss store.
