You’ve heard it said, usually in defense of some sort of restriction on free speech, and often by people who really should know better: “You can’t yell fire in a crowded theatre!” There are a whole lot of reasons that it’s a terrible phrase that should have died a long time ago (see Popehat’s thorough explanation) but they won’t all fit on a t-shirt, so our gear offers a simple rebuttal. It’s an old favorite design that we’re relaunching today in our Threadless store: You Can Yell Fire In A Crowded Theatre.
As always, the design is available on t-shirts, hoodies, sweaters and other apparel — plus various cool accessories and home items including buttons, phone cases (for many iPhone and Galaxy models), mugs, tote bags, notebooks, and of course face masks.
Check out this and our other gear in the Techdirt store on Threadless »
