Extremely funny Contra shirt



http://www.80stees.com/products/Nint...shirt_code.asp

Might've been a funny shirt if they had gotten the code right. Or does this make it funnier?

If I saw someone walking around wearing this shirt, I think I would point and laugh at them!

I was about to say, "The cose is wrong!!! OMG!!", glad that has been caught.

And no, IMO it makes it less funny.

From the page for the shirt
Please note that there are other codes, and that ours is different than the one for 30 lives.
Please note we fucked up the code, but have a warehouse full of these things and have to sell them this way.

I'd totally buy that if the code was right, how could they seriously mess it up that bad? I think there are other versions of this shirt that may have it right. I saw someone walking around the other day with a T-shirt of the Zelda Heart meter lol.

I feel tempted to merge this with T-Ball's thread.

Well.. seems that people have bought it since the adult sizes are sold out. Maybe people are buying them then saying the code is wrong and getting the cash back

The Code shirt is still available at ThinkGeek.com...

And I'd get the PacMan toque, but $20 is too much

You can make yourself a Cafe Press T-shirt, have no mark-up, and it would only cost you $8.99 for a shirt.

That reminds me, I haven't worn my Boron Cowpunch shirt in awhile.

I have a Konami Code shirt that has the correct sequence on it, and I bought it probaby 5.5 years ago. I wear it with pride, oh yes.

That was the first thing I thought of when I saw the belt buckle.

I can't believe anyone would buy the shirt with the wrong code on it. Does the shirt at Kohls have the wrong code on it? Gheez.

Jedi, Hot Topic now has the Zanzibar shirt at B&M locations, if you haven't already picked one up.

Thanks Duster. I've been trying to grab one of those, but I've never actually seen it at a B&M yet. I'll keep an eye out.
