The same language, however, apparently is not necessarily considered offensive when worn on the front of T-shirts by students in American high schools. Which is the point of our report. In a school in the northern New York state city of Mexico, this has turned into a legal dispute. Big Johnson T-shirts-these particular shirts have been written about in the Tribune-are increasingly popular among certain young segments of the population. The "Big Johnson" phrase is said to be a not-very-subtle reference to what, in calmer times, were referred to as private parts. Specifically, private parts of males. But since very little is private anymore, Big Johnson T-shirts, illustrated with Big-Johnson-related cartoon drawings, are often seen being worn in public.
