What do you tell every non-whiskey-member when they ask you about your fancy t-shirt? I find that the Lincoln Force shirt is especially hard to sum up to people who don't play video games.

Haven't had a chance to sport it yet. Hasn't been T-shirt weather here in months! It's only now starting to get warmer. So I'll get back to you on it.

What I find weird is that it even needs an explanation, video games or not. If I saw someone wearing that, I'd just go ahead and assume it was your average shirt about Lincoln being a badass mu'fucker.

I actually give people an entire history lesson every time I have my members shirt or original Giant Bomb shirt on. 
Even if they don't ask.

I just say that I get the t-shirts off a crazy website. No-one is interested enough to ask questions after that.  Although it was funny seeing my dad reading the latest one the first time he saw it: "Lincoln...Force?"

I tell my friends and strangers about giant bomb and then they call the site stupid without giving it a chance. :(

I just tell them I'm a member since 2010. I never explain what I am a member of. Its funnier that way.

I tell the Gian Bomb it's an awesome website and you should do yourself a favor and join.

Kill them, drink their blood and resurrect Galgamator.

Nothing, because I don't like the designs on any of the shirts they have made so far, and because they are a size too small for me. So no reason to buy one yet. Here's hoping for one day though!

When people ask what Lincoln Force is, I usually say that it's a video game that SHOULD be made, but I have yet to meet anyone who truly thinks like I do and would go to giantbomb.com if I recommended it to them.

The GB throwback tee isn't all that random enough to warrant anybody asking about it and my Lincoln Force shirt still hasn't arrived, so I haven't had to cross that bridge yet. I'll probably just slap them in the face or something...

#17 Posted by LiquidSwords (2738 posts) -

I just say it's a video game related inside joke.

A friend of mine asked about my Lincoln Force t-shirt one day and I just said "If you don't know what the deal is yet then maybe you're not worthy of ever knowing" 
He googled it and ended up on Giantbomb and fell in love with the sites content. He didn't fall in love with the community though since he saw what the forums were like and decided to just browse the content he can

I'm afraid to wear mine. Might get it all stained and shit.

@buzz_clik:

Hah, I actually had a girl from my class ask me what the hell Lincoln Force was last Friday. My answer: Something awesome.

#23 Posted by rjayb89 (7726 posts) -

Someone asked me if it was a buzz_clik joint. I said that it was. Then we looked into each other's eyes. I

I think your dad's delivered a brilliantly sly dig at your notorious drinking proclivities, m'boy.
