ARLINGTON, TX - Some innuendos can be funny, but folks in Arlington didn't get much of a chuckle from a shirt that was sold by the Martin High School booster club.

The shirt's slogan reads, "We take what we want. Shhh, just let it happen."

The message got a lot of reactions, mostly negative because some thought it had a rape innuendo. The shirt got even more attention after the school newspaper, "The Warrior Post" questioned if the slogan was a rape innuendo.

A spokeswoman for the school district, Leslie Johnston, released a statement saying that the shirts were "never intended or thought to have any meaning other than football-related meaning - taking yardage, the ball, etc." When the rape innuendo was brought to their attention, they stopped wearing the shirt.

Guess like they say in football, no harm, no foul, right?
