Would 'You EAMD, bro?' be a funny t-shirt?

I laughed :)

Though, really, probably not fun to all but a few - likely no one I would expect to read it should I be wearing it.
One of the other conditions of possibility.

Plus reading it out loud is an affront to my English language skills: "You Ever Men Are Deceived, Bro?"

Maybe just "EAMD, Bro?"

Aww, get poetic licence with it, bro! It's 'You ever man art deceived, bro?' if you want to read it in a fancy shakespear like way.

I'd considered your second formulation, but concluded it did not contain enough of the original meme to trigger the meme (I mean the original is three words - you've already lost 33% of the meme and another word gone would be 66% lost) and so trigger the 'translation' of EAMD to MAD.

I think it could work as a teaser - in a 'Vote for Pedro' way. People get that it sounds like 'MAD' but what are all these other letters/nonsense? It raises a question mark. A mystery.
