Is this shirt a good conversation starter?

Do you think this shirt would be understood by most? Would it work at a bar to get a good convo going?

No. Don't use a shirt for a conversation starter. Use your social abilities to do so.

Re: Is this shirt a good conversation starter?

Oh, okay.

I wouldn't spend money on a shirt that many may not understand (like myself) and may not ask what it's about.

Best way to get a conversation started...ask what the person does, people love to talk about themselves. Be intelligent about it though.
Look for the person kinda sitting by themselves. I'm honestly not the best at it but when I do start a conversation it usually goes well.
Or if they're making an ass out of themselves, looking for attention...call them out in a joking manner and you'll start joking around and then conversing.

In fact it helped me get the job I'm at now, started talking to some MILF with my buddy and she was a Project Manager for POWER Engineers...asked me what I did, environmental/land planner, and said "we want to hire you, do you have a card?". Really like working for POWER too.

Its a Fresh Prince of Bel Air reference. "the license plate said fresh and had a dice on the mirror"

I really have no issues starting convo's, but just seeing if anyone liked the shirt
