I Designed Some Hilarious Food Pun T-Shirts!

Regular readers of my blog know that I love food, puns and dad jokes. And I’ve figured out a way to combined these three of my favourite things ON T-SHIRTS!!!

It all started in November when I was shopping for a gift for Darling Man’s birthday. I wanted to get him something fun, quirky and uniquely Vietnamese he could wear on our street food tours. I went to local shops and tourist shops but I just couldn’t find anything.

I could see what I wanted to get him. But no one seemed to have made it.

So I taught myself enough design basics to create some fun food pun t-shirts that totally crack me up. Some are funny because they don’t make a lot of sense. Others require a certain level of Vietnamese food literacy. And then there’s the ubiquitous stuff-on-a-motorbike image.

What makes these t-shirts so fabulously exciting is that they’re print-on-demand and can be shipped all around the world. That means you don’t even have to come to Vietnam to get some delicious food t-shirts!

People traveling in Vietnam, meanwhile, can buy these unique and stylish souvenirs without having to worry about overstuffing their bags and going over their luggage allowance. These wearable art beauties will be shipped straight home! You don’t need to carry them!

The t-shirts are available on RedBubble.com, a company that has been making high-quality t-shirts for years. The company is listed on the Australian Stock Exchange and uses production facilities in the US, the UK, Europe, Australia and Hong Kong — which is perfect for our food tour customers, who come from all corners of the globe.

I ordered a few t-shirts so I could check the quality, and guess what — they’re fabulous. The t-shirts come in three different women’s styles, so the ladies don’t have to wear a large boxy t-shirt (unless they want to).

The men’s/unisex styles are pretty flattering too.

I love this photo of my Irish brother-in-law Andy looking so thuggish. He was actually waiting for me to finish fiddling around with the camera.

My devilishly handsome Irish brother-in-law agreed to model the t-shirts for me before I left Australia. He’s not a big smiler, our Andy, but he did his best. For the family.

If you’d like a body like Andy’s to put into one of our t-shirts, you’re in luck. Andy is a personal trainer! He’s based on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland. Check out his Never Say No Fitness Facebook page here. Mention our Saigon Street Eats t-shirts to Andy and he’ll sing you a FREE Gaelic lullaby at the end of your first personal training session.

Our t-shirts are also available in kids sizes!

As an opening special, we’ve turned our commission to 0% on our Saigon Street Eats logo t-shirt for the first week. This makes the t-shirts a real bargain.

Go to my SaigonSass page on RedBubble to see all the designs. And let me know what you think. Are there any Vietnamese food puns you’d like to see on a t-shirt?


Finally, a big thank-you to my amazing models, Andy (wearing a men’s size M), Leigh (wearing a women’s size S) and Miss M (wearing a kid’s size S).
