Ok

Take a phrase "Guns dont kill squirrels cars do" if i had a unique design for this but I have seen it on another t shirt is it illegal to proceed??

or "Who let the dogs out?" is it illegal to make a shirt saying that?

or i seen one that said "My girlfriends husband hates me!" is that something that is able to be copyrighted?

I have plenty of original ideas i was just wondering where the lines are drawn and what if something is similiar to another??

If there is a "trademark" on the phrase, then you can't copy the phrase.

In general you can't "copyright" a phrase (trademarks and copyrights are 2 different animals).
