Thanks for gathering these. I admire your attempt to rationalize the use of Apple Casual and Comic Sans. Nicely spun! Unfortunately, it’s much more likely the choice wasn’t so intellectualized — the shirt makers probably just grabbed the first handwriting-like fonts that came to mind. And, of course, some simple, clear writing (not type) would be the best way to convey this message. Even raw scribbling would do.
There’s something almost jarring about seeing fonts like Apple Casual and Comic Sans on a t-shirt, nowadays. That makes it to where the message on the shirt almost begs to be read. Maybe the choice of such fonts is happen-stance. Though, to me, the novelty of those choices makes for some effective communication. Bravo!
