Dr. Phil informed us, in a succinct and entirely necessary tweet, that it was T-shirt time at exactly 1:00 pm ET this week.

Many of us were unaware that it was T-shirt time, an embarrassing lapse that Dr. Phil thankfully rectified. Look upon the tweet, uninformed masses, and understand what you’ve been missing. T-shirt time should come with a daily break from work. T-shirt time should be a national holiday.

T-shirt time, Dr. Phil edition, quickly became a meme.

That smile. The slightly wrinkled drape of the tastefully simple black tee. Luckily, with Dr. Phil‘s charitable tweet, the world at-large is now aware of T-shirt time, and enjoying it in full. Mostly by photoshopping stuff onto his blank canvas.


Now there are many T-shirt times. There are Stone Cold Steve Austin references.

For @KaylieMac, T-shirt time is a very formal time.

One user asked if Dr. Phil’s T-shirt time was akin to T-shirt time in MTV’s Jersey Shore. We are still awaiting an answer.

Even Momo, the subject of the recent viral internet challenge, showed up to T-shirt time.

There was even some impressive T-shit time-ception.

Of course, the internet cycle wouldn’t be complete without a screenshot of YouTube king PewDiePie making an appearance.

We don’t know what we did to deserve it, but T-shirt time is apparently here to stay. Thankfully, any time can be T-shirt time, so you’ll never miss it. Pop on a simple T-shirt, smile, and get your photoshop prepped and ready.
