Man fined $300 for wearing offensive t-shirt on Dawson Hwy

THE obscene t-shirt Mr Blundell was stopped by police for wearing is unlikely to have delivered the same humour at Gladstone Magistrates Court on April 1.

Andrew Blundell copped a $300 fine for public nuisance due to wearing an offensive t-shirt at 8.30am on March 12 as he was walking along the Dawson Hwy.

The defendant was stopped by police and refused to turn his clothing inside out, hence granting his own wish to have his right to freedom of speech heard before a court.

The shirt, which featured a nun fornicating and the words 'Jesus is a ***t' on the rear was determined by Magistrate Russell Warfield to be offensive by most people, especially women.

He asked the defendant whether he would be willing to parade the shirt in front of his mother, and urged Mr Blundell to exercise some common sense in the future.
