Custom commuter shirt

So I was riding with a friend this weekend and was nearly run over by old people TWICE. I'm thinking of getting a tshirt made up with this on the back:

DON'T HIT ME, I'M PAYING YOUR SOCIAL SECURITY

Who's in? And any recommendations for a place that'll make them inexpensively?

I'm thinking if you do that, you might also want to invest in a rear-view mirror and get more health insurance.

Too much reading. They'll get target fixation reading it through their trifocals and run into you.

I'm considering doing a custom shirt with a picture of a gun on it- something that will be recognizable as a gun even from a distance. If people think you're a wee bit bonkers, they're more likely to keep their distance.

Or maybe steal a cue from all those 'Baby on Board' signs and print one that says:

I'm assuming the old people were on bicycles, right?

Were they wearing shirts that said, "Don't be such an ass, Factus10?" Because if not, I want to send them some.
