What’s the genesis of this gag? Is it from some EU story or just something that someone thought would be funny on a T-Shirt?

“What Orwell feared were those who would ban books. What Huxley feared was that there would be no reason to ban a book, for there would be no one who wanted to read one.”

The T-shirt appeared at leat 13 years ago in “A Cinderella Story” (2004) : http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_FOj0dDyraGg/TCb3iFLbuNI/AAAAAAAAAaI/4ye22RgNiZc/s1600/ACinderellaStory_VaderFramed.jpg

I don’t know the genesis of this gag, but it is pretty old.

Edit: Google shows that some guy used this gag as signature in a forum in 2002: https://forum.dvdtalk.com/2938981-post32.html

So this gag is at least 15 years old…

Huh. I used to frequent that forum.
