“Hello. My name is Luke Skywalker. You killed my father. Prepare to die.”
Who hasn’t thought of that classic declaration of paternal revenge when Luke faced Emperor Palpatine? (And be honest: we never actually SAW his hands under those robes, so he could have had 6 fingers!) Well, now there’s a t-shirt that lets you proudly proclaim your support for the biggest “Fight that Might Have Been” since Supes and Spidey took it outside.
In one corner, wearing black with a black helmet, hailing from a galaxy far, far away: Darth “It is your destiny” Vader! In the other corner, direct from Florin, wearing black with a black eye mask: the Dread Pirate Roberts! Gentlemen, let’s keep this a fair fight: no midichlorians, no iocane powder.
Yes, it’s a match-up for the ages as these two bad guys (who are deep down good guys) square off to see who wins the right to be called the Original Man in Black. Darth may have his lightsaber, but remember: never count out the Dread Pirate Roberts, who can come back to life as long as he’s only mostly dead.
Get one of these Dread Pirate Roberts vs. Darth Vader shirts for your favorite Princess Bride / Star Wars fanatic and watch the “who woulda won” discussions begin!
Trekkies really don’t need this spelled out. But since this t-shirt puts a fine point on it anyway, and every episode of every season of every Star Trek series will soon arrive for glorious Netflix streaming …
Never get attached to the ones wearing red. They’re dancing death’s tango, and it’s not a long tune. And never pretend Kirk, Spock, Bones, Picard, Riker, Janeway and the like don’t know this. Starfleet only deems the fine young photon-fodder “ensigns” because “singed and smoking pair of black boots” doesn’t fit the “rank” line on a death certificate. Truth is, they’re walking, talking, one-named range-finders for the ranking officers in the away team to note what exactly denotes a “safe distance” from ugly death.
That distance being, about 50 feet back from where Ensign Rory’s furthest scrap of charred flesh landed. That should do it.
Ah, but never was a red death in vain. Ever since William Shatner’s original 1960s traveling circus, it has been the idiom for “we wouldn’t miss you until it was your turn to cover the bar tab.” So buy this red Star Trek shirt – obviously not for yourself, unless you want to coat yourself with soot and debris and make a self-deprecating Halloween costume of it. Find someone in your life whose cha-cha on your last nerve is getting a touch old. Present shirt. If the death magnet gets the message, then ’nuff said. But should that harbinger of unfortunate random demise bite a thumb at the Geeks of Fate and actually wear the thing, see if on that day your acquaintance wouldn’t mind touring a working construction site. Perhaps a Chilean coal mine.
And if that person wears some slick-looking black boots, make sure they’re your size. They won’t be needing them for long.
Teefury.com is an awesome site that offers limited time sales on completely original (and often nerdalicious) t-shirt designs – and this one is no exception. In fact, we thought today’s design by WinterArtwork was so exceptional, we had to put up a post as quickly as possible so our readers could share the love!
Edit: This design is no longer available from TeeFury, but may be purchased directly from the designer. See the link below!
We’ve seen our share of Firefly tees, but they’re usually not all that special – that’s why I love this Browncoats t-shirt that pays homage specifically to Firefly’s die-hard fans. It’s only available today (April 25th) from TeeFury, so snatch it up soon, Browncoats. Shiny!
One of our very favorite Geek Gems retailers is offering an awesome, limited time sale on Doctor Who gifts, action figures and novelties – and we couldn’t resist getting the word out! Now through April 26th, for every two items you purchase from the Doctor Who gift collection, the 2nd one will be discounted at 40% off. This includes everything from Doctor Who action figures to sonic screwdrivers, TARDIS novelties to t-shirts and wearables. They even offer stunningly detailed “masterpiece edition” busts of some of your favorite Doctor Who characters.
The sale on Doctor Who gifts ends on April 26th, and we haven’t found such a comprehensive – or affordable – collection anywhere else, so it’s definitely worth a look!
Sometimes my friends say the silliest things, like: “I didn’t really care for the Mass Effect games” or “Scott Pilgrim vs the World wasn’t that good”. And then I laugh evilly as I imagine maiming their faces off in my mind’s eye. But there’s one thing that will incite actual violence, and that’s hating on Wayne’s World, one of my all-time favorite movies. (A slightly lesser offense is the false claim that Wayne’s World 2 was somehow superior. Because it was SO NOT.)
Now I realize it’s been roughly eleventy-billion years since these films first came to the big screen, but relevance is timeless when it comes to Wayne Campbell and Garth Algar. And so are these awesome Wayne’s World t-shirts! Whether you’re paying homage to Stan Mikita (“if you stab a man in the dead of winter, steam will rise up from the wounds”), or remembering the awesome that was Waynestock, these shirts will party on forever.
I do have one complaint though: while these Wayne’s World shirts are all offered in durable cotton blends, none of them are “ribbed for her pleasure”. (Ewwwwww.)
