What the well-dressed Crusader is wearing

Foxfier (see comments to 9/11 post infra) has a T-shirt that says "When Does the Next Crusade Start?" I have a bumper-sticker that says "You say 'neocon' like it's a bad thing." Any other ideas for Crusade-themed word-wear? (Neocon themes accepted as functional equivalent.)

"My St. Bernard is a Clairvaux"

"Urban II Renewal"

"'Saladin' -- is that a Nom de Drag?"

"Fighting the Dark Lord Since 1099"

"My other car is a white horse with this awesome red cross on it"

"Snape is Bohemond's Man"

"Bless the children, give them victory now" (Aeschylus, Libation Bearers; DH epigraph)

"Just War -- When Anything Else Just Won't Work"

"Neocon = Granddad dug Trotsky
Paleocon = Granddad dug Lindbergh"

"711: In Spain, it's Not a Convenience Store"

"I Love it When You Talk Esoteric" (for Straussians)
