Help me find that travel tee shirt with all the little pictures on it!

I once saw a tee shirt that was made for travelers going to countries in which they did not speak the language. It was sort of a joke, but it had little pictures like of planes, hotels, food, things like that. The idea is that you would point to which one you needed. It had maybe 16 or 20 little drawings on the front.

Anyone seen it recently? My Googling skills are failing me.

I thought I saw an app like that (the googles, they say nothing!) but you could always roll your own.

Something like this?

Yes, similar. The one I saw was way cuter, and had more content, but that's the idea.

Perhaps this Threadless shirt?

None of these are the one I saw and loved, but they are very cool, and led me to this one, also cool.

Here's a tote for sports ...

Interesting paper on use of pictograms.

Big ol decals.

if you actually want it for utility, rather than sartorial splendor, there are fold-out cards with huge heaps of these, arranged by category...
