HOW TO KEEP AN AUDIENCE IN SUSPENSE IN 'LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE' OF A T-SHIRT WITH MORE THAN JUST 'JESUS WAS' WRITTEN ON IT

In the quirky road movie comedy LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE, uncle (Steve Carell) moves back to partially reveal his Nietzsche fan nephew who wants to be in the Air Force and his JESUS WAS t-shirt, the last word covered up... What does it say?
Now to a diner, the kid is still covering his shirt, and we remember WAS and now only see the name of JESUS
Watch close... The kid is finally about to move his arms away to eat, but watch dad (face unseen) holding the coffee cup...
Thus allowing the kid to eat his food, arms free, with dad's cup and hand doing his (actually the filmmaker's) job for him
What's this? A full shot of the shirt, but... We still can't see what is says... It's blurry; too far... Even really close (cheating) it's still blurry...
Next shot we go back to the crossing of the arms... It's like that kid just doesn't wanna show us yet... What's up?
Oh, oh, wait, for a split second grandpa moves and... Is that a B? I looks like a B! An R is shown clearly but that's it, and again, it's a split second...
After which, the kid does it again... Conveniently crossing those arms and keeping anyone who notices in suspense...
Well there's something new... After all, you can't cross your arms when you're reading, so just move forward and let the seat cover it...
Wait a minute, do we finally... No again... While it's a full shot, this one's not only far and blurry, but the shirt's wrinkled... No luck... Not yet...
But now... The would-be military kid, after clicking George W. Bush off the TV, lies down on the motel bed... still covering up until...
The obviously intentional prolonged reveal of what the shirt says all along, and what it'd covered up till now... JESUS WAS WRONG
