The Marilyn T-shirt by Bigger than Jesus riffs on one of the bombshell's most famous quotes.

The full quotation, as I'm sure you already know, reads, "But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best." The wise words by Miss Marilyn Monroe have almost taken on a life of their own. They are referenced underneath many a selfie, liked on many a Pinterest page and generally might be one of the most over-used motivational phrases among tween girls.

But what exactly constitutes as someone's "best" and "worst"? This T-shirt puts things into perspective by using modern-day examples. It alters Monroe's original words to say "If You Can't Handle Me at My Lil Kim, You Don't Deserve Me at My Beyonce." If you're familiar with Lil Kim's troubled history, you'll understand why she exemplifies the "worst." As for Beyonce, I'm sure that's self-explanatory.
