I think you will find the answer to your question is also the definition of banality.

Not that i agree with it being defined at all, but here it is...
Okayest
This thread made me look up 2 words from the internet, one word hardly qualifies.

According to Google okayest meaning "most average"
I am not sure why is this funny, but it is probably something to do with the word "best" as a spin off

I guess she wasn't the, "World's Best Sister," just an "okay" sister. Sure beats being the world's worst sister!

Oh no you didn't go there... the mostest made up word in the fake world:

supercalifragilisticexpialidocious

My mind still hurts being exposed to it when I was young... wtf. Don't watch this or your reason will implode, too.

Exactly!
I always thought using made up words for T-shirts is the worstest idea!

Read it as "Okay-est."

The joke (which will surely be lost having been analyzed) is that you might expect to be told you are the world's best sister in a card... but instead are told you're merely "okay." But at least you're the "most" okay.

It's a bit like when I was going to have my gallbladder out, and who I presumed to be the doctor was prepping me, and I said, "Thank-you doctor." And he said, "Oh no, I'm just the nurse." Then on reflection he added, "But I am... the best nurse. And will prep you with, uh, vigor. Yeah."

Peace.

Let me guess. The other word this thread made you look up was banality.

Me too.

And I'm usually proud of my vast vocabulary. 😁

The example explained it so clearly
I asked my close friend this question,too and her explanation was same. 'The word 'okayest' doesn't really exist, but the T shirt is a joke based on the more common T-shirt 'The World's Best Sister'. It's a big compliment to tell your sister that she is the best one in the world. If you are 'an okay sister', it means that you are just about all right, acceptable, not great... and it's funny to say that someone is the 'most okay' sister in the world'.
