The Krusty Krab was no more, and the alien invaders who had destroyed the restaurant, along with half of Bikini Bottom, were still roaming free. Bob had been standing in everyone else's shadow his whole life, but this time he wouldn't just stand by and watch his world crumble around him- he would act. He raided the local toy store and found a suit of fett style armor, the kind worn while waging war in the stars, and with his soft sponge body covered and his head all helmeted Bob was ready to blast off!
Don't be a typical square pants, bring home this BOB FETT t-shirt by Fernando Sala and defend your geeky universe from the forces of boring fashion.
The Millennium Falcon is one of the most iconic starships in the history of science fiction, and both its overall look and the role it played in the original trilogy’s storyline influenced the role starships played in many sci-fi movies to come.
Han’s iconic smuggler ship has been commemorated and brought to life as toys, model kits, beds, cake molds, and countless DIY projects, and even though it’s not as shiny as other sci-fi ships it’s definitely an integral part of the Star Wars universe.
This detailed graphic lays out all the ways the Millennium Falcon played in to the original trilogy (and its brief appearance in Episode III), and even if you already know
For most people prank calling means ordering a pizza for an unsuspecting neighbor or calling a bar and asking for Amanda Hugginkiss, but for one little Minecraft obsessed prankster crank calls simply aren't enough.
This kid likes doing two things above all- playing Minecraft and swatting his foes, meaning he got SWAT teams to kick in the doors of those he felt had wronged him in real life and in the Minecraft universe.
The targets were a classmate and teacher from his school in Ventura County, California, and a player he considers his arch-enemy in Minecraft, who lives in Ocean City, New Jersey.
Two questions come to mind after reading this story- how does a Minecraft rivalry become so overblown? and can you really get the SWAT team to show up at somebody's house with a threatening phone call?
Peperonie is celebrating his first birthing day and waiting for his owner to finish transforming into a lich so Peperonie can become a lich's familiar and have his life extended by a hundred thousand years! (Contains NSFW language)
It appears 3D printing technology has already gone from new and useful to experimental and strange, and some people aren’t content with simple plastic printouts anymore.
Chocolate printers have been a reality for some time, as well as the amazing pancake printer (aka the future of flapjack technology), but creating a Easy Cheese printer is proving to be a lot harder than anyone thought.
Artist Andrew Maxwell-Parish is the cheese whiz who came up with the idea of using 3D printer technology to shape squeezable cheese food product into eye pleasing shapes, and this ridiculous test video proves it's ain't easy to print with Easy Cheese! (Video contains NSFW language)
Barney Lebowski has surrounded himself with some rather rock-headed friends over the years, but Walter Flinstone really took the cake in terms of having rubble for brains. Barney and Walter met while working at the stone quarry- Barney was a bumbling goofball with a mellow mindset and Walter was a big, angry vet who had just come home from the Raptor Wars. They represented opposite sides of the emotional spectrum, and yet they bonded over one major thing they had in common- a love of bowling...
Bring some movie mashup fun to your geeky wardrobe with this League Rules In Bedrock t-shirt by Jack Brimstone, and don't eff with the Jesus Lizard!
They're two of a kind, but they wear different helmets so you can tell them apart. These musical jokers are considered daft by some, technologic punks by others, but all agree that their sound is delightfully danceable! When this cyber duo starts to play their electro tunes invite you to lose yourself to dance, and when the song ends everybody starts to shout out "one more time!"
Add some musical game to your geeky wardrobe with this One More Tee! t-shirt by Fearcheck, it's the perfect attire to wear as you travel around the world or simply kick back and listen to your favorite tunes.
Edward and Alphonse Elric are a mighty odd looking pair, but you'll never find two brothers with more in common, or less to lose, than these strange siblings. Trapped inside a magic suit of fullmetal armor, Alphonse is often thought to be the older of the two, which Edward really hates hearing, but once you get to know them it becomes quite clear that Alphonse truly is the little brother. His skills as an alchemist can't compare to Edward's amazing abilities, and he often makes mistakes that require his older brother to bail him out, that is, when his armor shell can't do all the defending for him...
Go fullmetal fabulous with this Little Brother t-shirt by Bocaci, it's sure to cast a spell over your fellow fans!
People love to post flyers all over the place, and putting up pieces of paper where everyone can see them is a great way to advertise the fact that you offer discount massages, dog sitting services, or guitar lessons.
Posting bits of paper with funny stuff printed on them is also a great way to troll the world, bringing a smile and a quizzical “whuh?!” to those who see your handiwork hanging from a power pole or bulletin board.
Professional wrestlers are paid to play larger-than-life roles that read well no matter how far away from the ring the fans are sitting, and their characters wouldn’t be complete without a signature style of dress.
WWE NXT's Finn Balor is no stranger to playing big roles, and he enjoys sporting "war paint" into the ring to make a big impression on both his opponent and the audience.
He has donned a variety of superheroic looks, from Carnage to the Joker, but when he saw the amazing bodypaintings being created by Emily Anderson he just had to go under the brush.
The Spencers were watching old home movies they’d recently digitized when they discovered that their first meeting didn’t take place on a fateful blind date ten years ago, but rather at Sesame Place amusement park when they were kids back in 1988.
Jourdan's family was behind the lens back in '88 when a bespectacled young Ryan entered from stage left and set Ryan's theory in motion:
...people come into our lives when they’re meant to and leave when they’re meant to, and obviously we were supposed to meet again. Our paths crossed more than once.
The Sixties will always be known as an extremely exciting and interesting era, and with all the interesting and exciting things going on in the world kid's TV shows tried to keep things interesting as well.
Some shows played on the world's obsession with space, others embraced psychedelia and rock music to keep things thoroughly mod, but above all kid's TV shows were stranger in the 60s than they'd ever been before!
(This list is far from comprehensive, so please feel free to tell me about any shows from the 60s that I left out and I'll include them in a follow-up article.)
Space Angel centers around Captain Scott McCloud and his crew, who are agents working for the Interplanetary Space Force aboard the spaceship Starduster.
They battle extraterrestrial enemies such as the Anthenians and the Evil Queen Of Space, and with a little help from McCloud's alter ego Space Angel they're able to defend Earth one static panel at a time.
Compositing video footage of a talking human mouth over traditional animation is a practice that is seen as silly and hoaky to this day, but adding talking mouth footage to illustrations by legendary comic book artist Alex Toth- now that's just plain criminal!
Awww, look at the cute little extraterrestrial sock critters! The Clangers are a family of mousey aliens who live on, and inside, a faraway planet. They're called clangers because of the clanging sound made by the trash can lids that cover their burrows, which help protect them from meteor strikes.
They eat Blue String Pudding and soup provided by the Soup Dragon, encounter strange flora and fauna on the planet's surface, and solve problems while under the protection of their dad, Major Clanger. They're cute and, like, totally far out, and if you watch one episode you're sure to fall in love! -Thanks Skipweasel!
Kids who grew up in the 80s were exposed to a lot of cool flicks, many of which had plots that revolved around kids like us overcoming any obstacle to become the awesome hero they were meant to be.
These movies were inspiring, empowering, and made you feel like kids could conquer the world, but no movie delivered the awesomeness along with the kid power message quite like The Goonies.
It had everything a kid could want- an (almost) all kid cast, adventure and exploration in search of treasure, pirate themed bad guys, and a crazy monster dude that ended up being everybody's friend.
Speaking of Sloth, did you know the guy behind the makeup was a first overall pick in the 1973 NFL draft, and went on to win two Superbowls with the Oakland Raiders? His name is John Matuszak, and he gave a nod to his former team in The Goonies by wearing a Raiders t-shirt in the beginning of the film.
The nerdy crew at ThinkGeek have an annual April Fool's Day tradition that's both fun and a bit frustrating- they release images of fake products, complete with links to fake product pages in their shop, then laugh like maniacs as fans go crazy for that shiny new product they'll never get to own.
People got wise to their ways and stopped believing in their April Fool's Day product releases, and then they went and changed the game again- by actually producing some of their most popular fake products.
This year ThinkGeek went big and feline friendly with their April Fool's Day product release for 2015- The Voltron Cat Condo:
With a $190 price tag the Voltron Cat Condo isn't going to be one of their best sellers, and frankly looks like a pretty easy DIY project, but the cats look pretty pleased with their epic robo condo!
Once upon a time they were just a bunch of a-holes who kept the park clean and running smoothly, but now they're the galaxy's last hope...looks like we're screwed! This pack of goofballs won't be able to act as noble guardians, much less mindless grunts, so how are they going to keep intergalactic ingrates from rockin' our worlds? With a mighty YEAHUH! and some sweet karate moves, that's how, and if those super jerks don't stop messing around they'll finish 'em off fo'sho with the Rigby Rocket!

Old Evil No.1 has an ancient flavor few mortals can stand, let alone appreciate, and the squidly aftertaste isn't for those with a weak stomach.

Having a hideous skull for a face can make you feel mighty unattractive, even if you've got a body that would make Mr. Universe jealous, and feeling unattractive can sometimes lead to antisocial behavior. So what's a skeletal overlord to do with all that angst bottled up inside him? Why, start a rock band, of course! With Beast Man on bass, Evil Lyn rockin' the electric guitar and Clawful pounding out a wicked beat on the drums the new sound of evil was born- Antisocial Overlord!
Master the art of mashup fashion with this Antisocial Overlord t-shirt by Devil Chimp, you don't have to be a He Man fan to appreciate the hilarity.
The tenth incarnation of the Doctor was known for many things- his signature trench coat, his love of 3D glasses, and his madcap personality, but there's one French phrase that describes him better than all the rest. It has come to be known as his catchphrase, though who needs a catchphrase when you're a time travelling lord, and whenever we hear that phrase uttered we can't help but think of the tenth. That phrase, of course, is Allons-Y, meaning "let's go", and when the Doctor shows up at your door yelling "Allons-Y, Allons-Y!" you either go or regret not going for the rest of your life!
Bring some sci-fi character to your geeky wardrobe with this Allonsy! t-shirt by Tom Ryan's Studio, it's a fun way to show love for your favorite incarnation of the Doctor!

The Lumpy Space Princess was born with all her lovely lady lumps, so she's had time to figure out how to work what she's got and drive the guys wild! It's not every day that some ordinary guy from a candy kingdom gets to talk to an actual alien princess, and when she's also delightfully lumpy it's like a two-for-one for some lucky dude! The only guy who doesn't seem swayed by her lovely lady lumps is Finn, but that's because he likes those stuck up skinny girls who do science and stuff, and he doesn't realize what an adventure he's missing!
Isn't it time you brought some lumps to your geeky wardrobe? With this You Can't Handle These Lumps t-shirt by Guicanoide you can get all lumpy and make your fellow fans turn purple with envy!
Moustaches are manly but not that scary, but as soon as they become part of a beard the whole hairy look becomes utterly terrifying, that is if you're a villain. Sometimes they get scared because the man behind the beard is a cold hearted badass, other times they're terrified by the thought of all that mystical power concealed within a guy's gray shaggy beard, and then there's the Wolverine. He's such a stud that he doesn't need a moustache or beard hairs in the middle of his chin to make a statement, his claws do all the talking for him!
Spread awareness about the power of facial hair with this Fear The Beard t-shirt by Butnyes, which can also be used as a field guide to personality types in the urban jungle.
Measuring stuff can be an ordeal, what with the 2.54 centimeters in an inch and the 453.592 grams in a pound, but if you think the differences between U.S. customary and metric are wacky you've never tried to measure the amount of land a single person behind a single oxen can till "in the morning hours."
At least the units used by the two main systems of measurement make sense, but how the heck did people use “a cow’s grass”, aka the amount of grazing land needed to feed a single cow, as a unit of measurement?
And if you think that’s hard to wrap your head around try measuring the difference in shoe sizes by The Barleycorn, which originally stood for the size of a corn of barley but has since been standardized to 1/3 of an inch. The Barleycorn must die!
Some monks sit and read old bible verses all day, some sit in silence and pray for the world’s sins, and then there are those monks who train both their bodies and their spirits to become mighty enlightened.
Check out this video of a Shaolin monk who has trained his body to become an ultimate tool of awesomeness- he's able to withstand just about anything his sparring partner throws at him, including a drill to the head. (Warning- totally intense!)
Mr. T is part tough guy, part motivational speaker and all larger-than-life, and even though he has played some iconic roles during his thirty plus years in showbiz he simply hasn’t been in enough stuff.
Maybe it’s his immutable style, or his gruff method of delivering lines, but whatever the reason Mr. T is a hard hire for projects with scripts sadly missing the stage direction “Mr. T enters and talks about pitying fools".
Nintendo has created their own signature brand of strange during their thirty plus years in the video game business, and yet even they have cancelled games because they were just too strange to sell.
Games like Donkey Kong's Fun With Music and Super Mario Spikers had all the right faces, and yet they didn't properly fit into the mainstream Nintendo universe, deemed too weird to sell.
And then there's Mike Tyson's Intergalactic Power Punch, a game that sounds like a great follow up on paper but actually stunk worse than Venusian slime when playtested. It's a shame Intergalactic Power Punch never got off the ground, because we finally could have played as Tyson!
Fans of The Simpsons are a dedicated bunch, which isn't surprising since many of us grew up watching wacky stuff happen on the mean streets of Springfield. As fans grow up they look for more adult ways to express their love of that colorful cartoon show, and the most popular adult way to show love for The Simpsons is with a totally boss tattoo!
Some feel that sporting a sexy Milhouse tattoo on their calf will totally change their life
And a tattoo of stunt triking Homer will inspire all who see your ink
And if you're a cartoon loving badass you might as well get a killer Sideshow Bob tattoo
All of these amazing Simpsonian tattoos and many, many more can be found at an Instagram account called The Simpsons Tattoo, where the tattoo ink flows like cartoon blood and the collection seems to grow by the day.
Americans find Canadians fascinating in many ways, and even though our neighbors to the north are way more like us than many ‘Mericans would like to admit we're fascinated by the differences in our cultures.
We have an undeniable fascination with Canadian slang, which many Americans are introduced to by TV shows like The Kids In The Halland SCTV, and the most Canadian movie ever made, Strange Brew.
Bob and Doug taught us when to use words like “hoser” and “beauty”, and to follow up most sentences with “eh?!”, but most Canadian slang eludes Americans because we don’t hear it on a daily basis.
