Ideas Help - joke hidden in artwork for new jersey

Dear All,

i need some ideas for a little 'easter egg' I want to hide in the new jersey design for one of my old clubs.

My plan is to put some artwork or text at the bottom of the back panel, so that once sewn up it will be hidden inside the back pocket. How often have you actually looked in to the bottom of your jersey pockets?

I've got one guy from the club (who is a bit of a jokester) thinking about it, but I thought I would see if I could cast the net wider for some ideas. Any general comments on the jersey also welcome.

The design is for a rowing club in AUS, so hopefully none of them are looking here.

I have a jersey for "White Rascal Ale". On the bottom of the back are a fake bar code and "40 Oz."

Put a little fake warning sticker that reads "Danger: 400 watt output can be dangerous and inspire disbelief."

An on/off switch? But, should it be On or Off?

Hazardous Materials signs.

A big image of these signs

Perfect for rowers --"Dangerous when wet"



These are good, too:

I'll look out for a Puma box.

Everyone thinks that my wife and I are strange when we go to the movies at the cinema because we wait to watch all/most of the credits at the end. There are often some moments of absolute gold hiding back there.

Could put the words to "Row, row, row your boat..." in there.

Only if I wanted a rowing shell shoved up my tender areas!

I can't think of a cycling specific example right now, but it's one of those things that rowers are sick of hearing but people on the shore/bridges etc seem to think is funny to shout at us.

ok - so you just put "but a dream" in there.

or

"What did the coxswain say to her winning crew?" (not giving an answer of course, so speculation can run rampant).

Easter egg?

...you mean something like: “Jesus rows from the dead, and so will I

Oar, if blaspheming in your scullingduggery doesn’t suit you, you could always imprint the armpit area of the jerseys with: “If you can read this, both my oars aren’t in the water”.
