It really takes a lot of guts to buy (and wear) a gag jersey. You're basically paying $150 for a wearable punchline. Sometimes it works great and sometimes....well, they get sent to us and we make a gallery.

The Favrebag seemed to generate a lot of interest from readers, as the last couple of days have seen a flood of submissions of fans who just couldn't resist the opportunity to wear their sense of humor on their back. Fashion-comedy genius or a waste of good polyester? You decide.

Keep sending more and we'll add them to collection. (Also check out Puck Daddy's "Jersey Fouls" for more shirt-based awkwardness.)
