* The ''Literature/DoctorWhoNewAdventures'' novel ''The Also People'', riffing off the Doctor's tendency to introduce himself with the sentence "Hello, I'm the Doctor and this is my friend [companion's name]", mentions that on a previous adventure the Doctor's then-companions bought a matched set of shirts from a custom screen-printing stall saying "Hello, I'm Ace and this is my friend the Doctor", "Hello, I'm Benny and this is my friend the Doctor" and "Hello, I'm the Doctor and this is my friend [delete where applicable]".
** Fun with t-shirts happens in the ''Literature/EighthDoctorAdventures'', too. In ''[[Recap/EighthDoctorAdventuresEarthworld EarthWorld]]'', Anji thinks about getting a t-shirt that says, "I'm a Main Character, Don't Kill Me", in the hopes that it will help her survive her unwanted adventures in time and space. In another book, the Doctor ended up involved in an election and Fitz got a shirt made that said "I'm Voting for the Doctor" with a picture of the Doctor's face.

It is also a shortcut characterization for the person wearing the shirt as a person with a sense of humor, particularly about their appearance. Or, hey: RuleOfFunny. Get over it. For maximum cheese, make the shirt [[TheMerch promotional merchandise]].
