The magic script is unreadable to any but the most advanced perl guru, but it does work.

This 3-line script is also famous for having been printed on the front of a t-shirt. I believe the gentleman behind it was Joel Furr. On the shirt, it showed the above three lines, together with a barcode version, and clear statement that the t-shirt was classed as a munitions and hence could not be taken outside the United States.

The back of the t-shirt featured parts of the United States Constitution (if I remember correctly, it was the first amendment), with a big VOID stamp on the back.

The shirt caused quite a furore; Joel Furr was actually arrested and faced court for printing and selling the shirts. I believe that this occurred in 1996.
