When you buy a new shirt, you don’t expect to get a free joke with it. Some clothing labels act like Popsicle sticks and contain little things meant to make you laugh. After all, there’s no rule that says a clothing tag needs to be serious. If you’ve never seen a funny one before, here are a few of the silliest clothing labels of all time.

Mother Knows Best

The symbols on clothing tags can be pretty confusing. Sometimes, it’s impossible to figure out what the label is trying to tell you to do. Of course, your mother always knows best, which is why you should just ask her to do your laundry whenever you can. After all, you don’t want to ruin your new clothes.

Don’t Be That Guy

It doesn’t matter how amazing your abs look. You don’t want to be “that guy” who decides to take his shirt off at a concert or a park, just to show off their body. Listen to your clothing label and keep that shirt on. You look just as good in it as you do out of it.

Animal Tested

No one wants to buy makeup that has been tested on animals. That’s why it’s important to search for cruelty-free products. You don’t have to worry about animal testing when it comes to shirts. Even if a monkey gets to try them on, it’ll be more cute than cruel.

Nursery Rhymes

Clothing labels have a habit of being too serious. Whoever created this tag decided to be unique by adding a nursery rhyme to the bottom of it. It’s a cute idea for children’s clothing, because it can urge them to actually read the instructions on their shirts and pants.

Time To Smile

This tag aims to put a smile on your face. It personifies the shirt attached to it, making sure the instructions are actually entertaining to read. It’s impossible to slip into a shirt like this without listening to the tag and smiling during your ride home.

Panda Safety

There’s always one label on your clothing tag that’s impossible to figure out. That’s why this tag is so clever. It contains a strange symbol you’d never be able to decipher until you read the writing listed next to it.

Gremlin Warning

If you’ve ever seen the movie Gremlins, you should know there’s a list of rules anyone around them needs to follow. The most important rule is to avoid feeding them after midnight. The creator of this tag must have been a big horror movie buff.

Christmas Time

Instead of containing information about the article of clothing, this tag provides valuable life advice. If you give someone a gift around the holidays, this is the type of tag they should be seeing. After all, December is a time to eat, drink, and be merry; not to worry about what size your shirt is.

Save The Animals

EBaum’s World

The world is a cruel place. However, you don’t have to contribute to the nastiness of it. This clothing label is reminding you to be kind to all of the animals around you. It’s not just puppies and kitties who need our help. Gerbils and snails deserve love, too.

Stating The Obvious

Clothing labels are meant to give you important information about your item of clothing, so you can clean it correctly. That’s why they typically state the type of material the outfit is made out of and whether or not it should be dry-cleaned. However, this tag is a little lazy. It just states the obvious, you should clean your clothes once they’re dirty.


What’s the funniest clothing tag you’ve ever seen?
