Do you use pishing when out birding to get birds to come in closer? The idea is that curious birds hear you saying “pssh pssh pssh” or some other strange noise (kissing one’s hand is another method of pishing) and come in closer to see what’s going on.
Today’s highlighted shirts are all based on the practice of pishing. Since a lot of non-birders will have no idea what it means to pish, these could prove to be great conversation starters!
First up is a text-based design inspired by another hobby: fishing. It reads Wanna hear my big pish story? Shown on the Junior Hoodie.
Pish is a funny word. The fact that it rhymes with fish helped with the first design. It also kind of sounds like the word piss being said with a lisp. The idea for this t-shirt, Pish off! came from Birdchick. Shown here on the Melange Ringer.
Finally we have pishing taken at its basic elements. Pisher Made of Elements is shown on the Baseball Jersey.
