<EDIT>
Since this is one of the first thing that comes up when you Google "Bitcoin shirts", I thought it would be prudent to say this isn't a future bitcoin retail site anymore.  It exists and is at SquareWear.biz.  The t-shirt that resulted from this thread turned out quite well.  You can see it here.
</EDIT>
 
Hi everyone, I've decided to start a t-shirt business with the goal of operating exclusively in bitcoins.  We're only going to accept bitcoins as payment and we're going to attempt to pay our costs in bitcoins.  I wanted to ask for the community's help in designing our bitcoin shirt (we will also sell non-bitcoin-related shirts).  So, please finish this sentence:

"Money doesn't grow on trees, it..."

I'm thinking something along the lines of "it's generated with cryptography" or "it's invented by Satoshi", but I need your help.  If I use your slogan I'll give you $25 worth of bitcoins and $1 worth of bitcoins from the first 50 shirts we sell.  I was going to put the amount in bitcoins, but if I offer something like 5 bitcoins, it will probably be worth $1000 by the end of the week (with the recent rally).

The picture will be of a stylized tree that looks like a computer network with PCs and bitcoins at certain nodes/branches.

Lastly, I see that I can pay for hosting with bitcoins, but does anyone know of a high quality tshirt maker (screen printing) who accepts bitcoins?  Thanks.

Money doesn't grow on trees,...
it is earned from the deep confines of a system that solves encrypted blocks.
but apples do.
but you sure can mine it!

I'll edit my post when I can think of more.

How about these:

Money doesn't grow on trees,
...it grows online!
...it grows from smart minds!
...it needs cryptographic keys! (Ooh, rhyming)

I'll keep brainstorming...

I still like it when it rhymes. How about these:

Money doesn't grow on trees?
..this Bitcoiner disagrees!

Money doesn't grow on trees,

A lot of these are clever.  My favorite so far is "they need cryptographic keys."  I'll pick a winner by the end of tomorrow.  I'm hoping to have the store and the shirt designs finished sometime next week.

Here are my 2 satoshi worth of ideas:

Rhyming ones

Money doesn’t grow on trees, it lives in virtual leaves.
Money doesn’t grow on trees, it’s formed with private keys.
Money doesn’t grow on trees, it’s mined virtually.
Money doesn't grow on trees, it grows on PCs.
Money doesn't grow on trees, it was given by a Japanese.


Non-rhyming

Money doesn't grow on trees.....it's mined.
Money doesn't grow on trees, it lives in the network.


Edit:  "given" should probably be replaced with "created" I dunnoo...  Tongue

Ooh, yay, competitions, I love competitions!

Money doesn't grow on trees ...

   ... until you look hard enough.
   ... it's brute-forced.
   ... but tasty bitcoin fruit does.
   ... but like to eat bitcoin anyway! [japanese-style slogan entry 200%]

Any nice? =)

Money doesn't grow on trees...
     Oh yes it does!

But actually I prefer this one, even though it doesn't exactly meet your criteria:

Money grows on trees...
     Merkle trees!

I like the Merkle trees one too.  I added a poll at the top of the thread to decide between my two favorites
