Here at GG, you know we love our geek t-shirts; in fact, maybe the only thing we love better is scoring an epic deal on those stylin’ threads. Now through May 31st, you can do just that from one of our favorite geek & pop culture t-shirt merchants!
We’ve already written about their collection of Charlie Sheen t-shirts, as well as the cheeky win of the “Hello” Lionel Richie t-shirt. But one thing I really dig about Donkey Tees’ collection is how quick they are to jump on pop culture happenings and trends. Sure, they cover nostalgic movie, music, and television references – but they also have designs based on recent trends and events, something you don’t often see with other t-shirt sites.
So what’s the dealio? If you spend $50 on tees between now and May 31st, you’ll receive a free drink koozie and a free $20 gift certificate good for a purchase in June. Score!
Hey guys! Big news: Geek Gems just scored a major sponsor! So while we perform our traditional dance of jubilation and gratitude (which, to the uninitiated, looks suspiciously like a really complex version of the “Running Man”), please enjoy this word from our newest benefactor:
Hi there. You know who I am, but you don’t know my name. It was hard work and sacrifice that freed me from Vault 101, but surviving day-to-day out here in the gray, God-forsaken Washington DC Wastelands? There’s no comparison. Between molerats, mutants and roving gangs, water sometimes just won’t do the job quenching my big, big thirst.
That’s when I drop one big, dirty bomb on my parched gullet with the “hottest” cool, refreshing beverage around … Nuka Cola! Caffeine? Leave it for the Enclave, those white collar pansies. I have a man’s thirst, and I need a man’s cola. Every bottle packs the kick of +3 RADS to wake up my vital functions. Don’t fear that esophageal burning; that just means the RADS are working. Trust me, the sensation will keep you up at night into the wee hours when you have to be on watch for roving mutants.
So when it’s time to get down and dirty, hot and heavy, and very possibly lethally contaminated along the way out here in the Wastes, reach for the fortified WMT (Weapon of Massive Thirst): Nuka Cola!
In case the rock you’ve been living under isn’t cable-ready, the lights go out on humanity tonight. So consider this the Mortal Coil’s “Going out of Business Sale”, and this Portal tee shirt is the Blue Light Special, courtesy of RIPT Apparel! If this is really it, think hard about what else you’re really going to spend that $10 on tomorrow.
No one has said yet just exactly what will be flipping the human race’s kill-switch, but if should it happen to be Mr. Wheatley, the product of the greatest minds of a generation working together with the express purpose of building the dumbest moron who ever lived, only the strongest and toughest-tested will survive. You’d better be damn sure to eat your Wheatley’s, the smartest cereal that could possibly bear the name of something that stupid. Wear this shirt with pride, test survivors – and remember this when idiocy ends the world: you can’t spell “Aperture” without “rapture.”
This balanced apocalyptic breakfast has been brought to you by Aperture Laboratories: re-arranging Rapture for over 50 years!
Many a Lord of the Rings fan (including our very own writer, Dr. Tomorrow) owns a “One Ring” replica, but we’re willing to bet that it’s not nearly as nom-worthy as it is “precious”. So here’s your chance to right that oversight, and to pay homage to both the Tolkien classic and a nostalgic candylicious favorite, with the One Ring (Pop) t-shirt. But you’ll have to hurry – it’s available today (May 18th) only!
“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!
