My sister just brought this shirt back from Korea for my son. I love the graphic - a skull wearing Mickey Mouse ears and with stars for eyes. My favorite part of the shirt though is definitely the writing underneath the image. "ORGNALST"! Fantastic! My sister suggested that this is "Konglish" (an English / Korean hybrid language). I think there's a good chance that they just misspelled "Originalist". (Don't worry if you don't know what it means. I wasn't certain either.) Basically, Originalism is "a legal philosophy that says the Constitution means the same thing today as it did when it was drafted in the summer of 1787, making no allowances for societal changes." (Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia considers himself an Originalist.)
