“Carpe per diem” shirt
EXPLANATION

Carpe diem is a Latin phrase literally meaning "pluck the day" but usually translated as "seize the day." It is an existential cautionary term, much like "eat, drink and be merry, for tomorrow we die," or Robert Herrick's "Gather ye rosebuds while ye may."

Per diem, or per day, is a government/corporate term for the specific amount of company money an individual is allowed to spend per day - often handed out in cash.

So, in using grammar that would make a Latin teacher want to throw a conniption (or declension), this shirt means "Seize the money."
