Sheldon Coopers Green Lantern Shirt

I have stared and stared at this thing to no avail. At first glance, it appears to be one of Sheldon's regular ol' Green Lantern tees, but once you give it a good gander you can clearly tell that there's what appears to be a paragraph of some sort written upon it. Unfortunately, I can't quite make out what it is. My best guess is that its simply a design of some sort or, if it is words, then it may even be one of the Green Lantern Corps Oaths (a collection of which can be found here) — although I doubt it.

Whatever the case, I'll have to keep working on this one. Sorry, my nerdy, shirt-hunting comrades.

  1. The writing looks like Amharic (Ethiopian)but having trouble to read it the picture is too blurry

  2. And the green lantern sign looks like number 4 in Amharic (Ethiopian)

  3. Sorry about the late response, Anonymous, and thanks for the added info (and sorry about the blurry picture!). Hopefully we'll get to the bottom of this soon enough. Some of these tees can be a real hassle to track down. haha

  4. The writing is either Amharic (Ethiopia) or Tigrinya (Eritrea), which use the same alphabet and are similar languages. I haven't been able to read it yet because I can't find a good pic.

  5. I just saw this shirt on an episode and thought it looked like the green lantern oath written in Klingon. My dad, a much bigger star trek nerd, believes it to be in romulan. Thoughts?

  6. Hey, guys, thanks for all the input. I'm still not sure about anything, but I have included a closer-up shot of the shirt. Still not perfect, but I hope it helps anyone else trying to figure this puzzle out.

  7. I think it's the oath in Amharic.

  8. It s interlac . From legion of super heroes. Each letter corresponds to a letter in english. It s made up. And it s basically english.

  9. ohhh thank you, i thought i was going crazy, i noticed that shirt and it looked familiar like it had amharic characters on it, i'm soo obsessed with it and i paused the scenes to get a better look but i couldn't and i finally googled and found this. anyway thanks a lot, feels good to know i'm not the only one.
