expanding on the ‘language of unicycling’ shirt concept, i thought it might make for an interesting shirt to list the ‘wrong’ names people call unicycles
‘one wheel bicycle’ must be the best known misnomer
are there enough incorrect terms people use to refer to a unicycle to fill up a t-shirt?
Whenever I’m out riding my unicycle people say the same thing every time. They either ask me where the other wheel got to or tell me I got ‘ripped off’ and only got the one wheel. It’s funny because they all think they’re being really original and funny.
Not only do people call my unicycle a one wheel bike, but some just call it a bike!

I was riding around Sea World and I heard a little girl call it a one-legged thingy. Another time I heard a mother tell her very young daughter that I was riding a one-wheeled bicycle and the daughter told her that it wasn’t a one-wheeled bicycle but it was a unicycle. I laughed so hard I had to get off my wheel.
I’m going the other way…since I ride a bike I’m going to print a t-shirt for when I’m biking. It will probably have a downwards pointing arrow on the back and the words: “I’ve found my other wheel” or “two wheeled unicycle” or words to that effect.
Some of the incorrect unicycle terms people have used on me:
*that one wheel thingee
*uni tractor (for my MUni with Gazz tyre)
*What the ???#@!$???

Oh, that would be good. “Have you seen my other wheel”. I think it would be hard to make the artwork look clean without being too busy with the milk carton and all.
I like the milk carton and missing/wanted poster ideas. I think the missing poster would make a better t-shirt just because it would probably look better as a 1 or 2 color t-shirt design. But the milk carton has certain bit of extra humor in it though.
Adding 1-800-UNICYCLE as the contact number is great.
