Okay guys, how would you respond to this T-shirt?

On my flight home from London to Chicago, there were two very good-looking blonde girls traveling with their father, seated a few rows in front of me. The girls looked like they could be twins, about 19-21 years old.
I happened to venture toward the lavatory at around the same time as one of the girls, and at that time I noticed some wording on her tight black t-shirt. In medium-sized type, it read:
fit
chick
unbelievable
knockers
Sadly, I was speechless. While I'm married and was not looking to give her a pickup line, I wish I could have come up with a humorous comment without sounding like a pervert. Something like, "no false advertising there..."
What would you have said?

I would have said "May I borrow your T-shirt, my car just hit a water buffalo"

I would have said nothing.
A girl who would wear the shirt was looking for attention anyway- and I would not be the one to give it to her. What's worse, she was looking for attention in the absolute most shallow way possible, and embracing her own objectification in order to get it.
If I said anything to her, I would have suggested she develop some true self respect, not pre-packaged "I'm valid because I'm sexy" empowerment through exploitation.
...
Of course I'm in the minority, I'm sure, most posters here would probably tell you that you should have grabbed her breast.

Wow. She could just have worn it because it was a funny and provocative T-shirt, you know. Even hot chicks have humour!

At least it wasn't
Fit
Unbelievable
Chick
Knockers

Aah Mike, but if it had then it wouldn't have also said 'I spent a fortune on this shirt at French Connection, thats how much I find this slogan funny'. I must admit, its not exactly my favorite clothes shop (more of a River Island guy myself).

Sometimes that is ALL they have, Vince. Sad, but true.

I would like to see the reaction if you reached down to grab the breast of one of the girls breasts with the father sitting there

Just to stress this point that Iain made - FCUK is the 'logo' of a fairly large high street chain in the UK - French Connection...

Yeah, but I noticed the Copley Sq. Boston location didn't try the arrangement of letters that was banned in San Francisco.

Guess it's been over 30 years, but when the 69 shirts were popular, some of us were known to say, "Can I show you how your shirt works?"
I can't recall how we reacted to the AC/DC shirts....it was all so confusing.

One of my favorite concert t-shirts from Silverfish...
HIPS
TITS
LIPS
POWER
I had it for a while and made it a present to a good friend of mine. That became her favorite concert-going t-shirt. Very cool! Silverfish was a baddass band, btw.
