Hey folks,

Attached is a photo of the t-shirts I've been selling during this fall 2012 tour. They are a beautiful light blue with black lettering and logo. The shirt says "I tell one lie a day... And this is it"

Perfect for magicians. If you're interested, I sell them for $15 in person, or $20 with shipping. Please PayPal to contact@brianmillermagic.com and include how many, what size (s, m, xl available; large are sold out), and shipping address.

The back has my website and Facebook fan page url.

Thank you kindly!

Brian

My first thought is Brian came up with it through independent invention. He is quite clever.

It has been a comedy club standard for decades at least that I know of.

Even Family Guy had a version of the joke. "Chris everything I say is a lie... except that, and that, and that".

It is a great premise.

Reminds me of the ole:

I don't drink,

I don't smoke,

I don't cheat,

I don't steal,

I only have one problem, I lie.

No one's claiming originality here guys Smile My first take for this new shirt came from George Carlin's "This sentence is untrue" and even he wasn't the first to do it.

I played around with a few versions of that idea, and Vick was the one who pitched the final wording that I kept.

Didn't mean it that way Brian...It's ok to build on ideas... That's how we grow.

You did well with it.

Tom

PS. Oh and my last line above should read, "I only have one HABIT, I lie."

I stole (er... remembered)it and modified it when Brian was looking for a line for his shirts, if you notice the ;-) in my post you'll understand.

It's been around in versions for goodness knows how long.

Thought it was a good fit for Brian as he has the "I lie, deal with it" phrase in his advertising also
