Just cut it down the middle, and each person gets half. Modern problems require modern solutions.
You're wrong. You're supposed to cut it down the flat side, smh. Just like, tape it on the front of your body (?) like a t-shirt with no back (?).

Actually, I would cut it down the sides so that both of you can hang up half of the shirt on your bedroom wall (if there was stuff on the back).

It's news to me that shirts were given out. Like I said, the national scoring team wasn't involved in those events at all, so we didn't even know there were prizes awarded.

What is the problem with releasing the results, anyways? All of the tests should have been graded and put together to find the winner in the first place, right? Am I missing something?
Also, not really a concern, but why does the shirt not even mention What Are You Trying To Tell Me and instead Pictionary?

What you are missing is the same thing we are missing: those actual results. These events didn't go through the typical score counseling process, where we centrally collect and check the scores. As a result, there is confusion amongst various people as to what happened to the original raw tests as well as the corresponding results. There are some discussions underway, but so far nobody seems to have kept a copy of that stuff.

Okay, I understand better now. Thanks for clarifying.
