Inspired by Giantbomb's Patrick Klepek I propose this as GB's new t-shirt "What is video game?". I've been hoping for a new t-shirt design for a while now. But if anyone else has any good ideas I think the community would love to hear them.

Somthing else besides that crappy saying. Perhaps A Giantbomb flight club logo on the chest?

I think "No Dorks Allowed!" would be a much better choice. Or at least I would buy that.

Could have gone with hot pink, or yellow.

Wait, do you not see some irony in that post? Isn't Hardcore Dave a meme at this point? Or are you only referring to verbal or textual memes?

Anyway, I would be totally down with a Flight Club shirt, though once again having Giant Bomb and Flight on your shirt might get you some strange looks. Not something you'd want to wear to an airport. I think it would have to be an insignia, maybe with initials.

Except when I hear a GB member say "what is video game?" I want to punch them because they are saying that for gag effect. Seeing it on a tee shirt would just make me gag.

You guys are probably right about "What is videogame?" being too much of an internet meme.

But I think the fight club t-shirt is a really good idea.

@Scrawnto: I know it's a meme, but it's the only one that has been an all right shirt too, aside from the meme.

Jeff's Pod-racer, or a re-release of the Chat Dragon shirt would be my suggestions.

This and 'the wizard' were done first by idlethumbs, also the concept of 'cool baby' is from my brother my brother and me. I don't know if these are merely coincidences or what but I sure feel uneasy about giantbomb claiming ownership over them.

Good to see people say how crappy _____ would be and then propose something just as crappy. Also the battle/confusion between fight club and flight club shirts. I'd go for one suggested in another thread centered about Jeff's launch everything into the sun stance or just a general bombcast themed one. Put "E-MAILS!" or something on there.

Idle Thumbs - 'The Wizard' aired in 2008. Search around the timestamps in the description. They've even talked to GiantBomb about it on a live stream I think, and I think Brad even said something on a bombcast and Ryan was 'whatev's, we made a t shirt of it first, we own it now' or something to that effect.

Loading Video...

And 'game game' 'what is game' are general idle thumbs memes Jake Rodkin/Chris Remo have said throughout the podcasts back then. Can't be bothered to find an exact clip but they're known memes for people who know idlethumbs.

my brother my brother and me - 'cool baby' used in the intro to every podcast, this is an animated excerpt from the first one, started in 2010 -

Even though I watch anime every now and again I'd probably wear that shirt.

Err, no? "I'm a wizard and that looks fucked up" was a comment on the Bombcast. The only similarities to Idle Thumbs' wizard thing is that they both use the word "wizard". By that logic, everybody would be sued every time they spoke.

And MBMBaM aren't the first people to use the concept of a baby wearing sunglasses, nor are they the only ones who'd think "baby + sunglasses = cool baby". I drew a Cool Baby in a piece of paper's margin back in the 90s, doesn't mean MBMBaM took the idea from me.

Giraffes (Africa) live nowhere near eucalyptus (Australasia). Unless you're implying they get it delivered from Amazon (South America).

Pretty sure you did the same thing I did at first, which is reading FLIGHT as FIGHT.

Except when I thought it said fight club, I said "fuck that".

This with the caption "Runs on Eucalyptus" would be awesome. Not necesarily as a Tshirt though. Maybe a mug instead.

I fucking hate it every time Patrick utters that phrase. So no. I would like them to re-stock the hoodies or do a zip-up variant.
