pop wisdom again

I read on a teenager's t-shirt today 'Hard work never killed anybody, but why take the risk?'

I am not a sourpuss: I get the joke, and under certain circumstances I can enjoy it too. But, professionally speaking and as a parent as well, I cannot but wonder that parents who buy their kids such things also come over to seek counsel about why those kids are becoming cussedly lazy...

Dear Sir,

Some of these quotes on t-shirts are so lousy and crass that sometimes I wonder how people can flaunt them in public. After seeing this post, I searched in Google and read some more is the link

Really, are these meant to be jokes or simply signs of bad taste?

With regards,
