How do you know when enough time has passed to make fun of or rant about something someone you know and see on a regular basis did or wore? Probably the answer is it is never ok. Oh well, sorry in advance Mack Daddy.*

So here's the story: A few weeks ago, a guy I have known for many, many moons, showed up to a social function (the type of which will remain nameless, let's just say the initials of this kind of event are F, H and E.) wearing a t-shirt not unlike this one:

(I suck at being vague. It was exactly this shirt.) I made a small deal about his shirt, trying to understand why he would 1. like this shirt enough to purchase it and 2. after obtainining said shirt wear it. I think, I think, he is wearing it to appear non-threatening, charming and datable.** Here's the rub though, it kind of sounds like something someone would say to put this delicately...they were about to force themselves on you.  It's the "relax" bit that really (and I mean REALLY) screams "date rape." According to this shirt, there is a fine line between cuddling and holding you down so you can't get away.

This t-shirt would be significantly less creepy if it simply said, "I just like to cuddle," or better still, "I like to cuddle."

*Maybe by calling him Mack Daddy*** it will soften the blow?
**All of which aren't particularly far from the truth. 
***The nickname he tried to give himself.
