This shirt is ten kinds of awesome, but the name is not nearly descriptive enough. Personally, I would have gone with something like “Sharkopter Vs. Squidmersible.” But that’s just me.
Get it at Chris Yates’ store on TopatoCo.com for $18.75. It is available in Teal as both American Apparel Standard and Classic Girl tees. Supplies in most sizes are currently running low, so buy it now!
Visit Chris Yates Studios for more about the artist and his works.
This is one I’ve been meaning to post about pretty much since I launched the blog, but it took me until today to get a decent photo of myself wearing it.
So, what the heck is Dinosaur Comics? I’m so glad you asked!
Dinosaur Comics (www.qwantz.com) is the creation of Canadian webcomicist Ryan North. The concept is a simple one: over the course of six panels, which are identical from one issue to the next, talking dinosaurs converse about such diverse issues as philosophy, social etiquette, grammar, and Topics of the Day. It is kind of like a perpetual Classical Greek dialogue, if you replaced Socrates with a spectacularly self-absorbed Tyrannosaurus. Also, it is one of my favorite things ever.
So, you now ask, what does this have to do with cephalopods? “Sinister Octopus” was inspired by the comic embedded below. In it T-Rex gets new neighbors and then gets a near fatal case of the willies.
These suspicious cephalopods (and those racoons!) show up every now and then to remind T-Rex that they still live next door and to creep him out. In fact, just yesterday, it was revealed that they followed T-Rex when he moved to a new home!

Here is another piece of inspired madness from TopatoCo. By the creators of the webcomic goats.com, “Squid vs. Wienermobile” is available in the goats galactron cortex store (where, as it turns out, you can also find the classic “Republicans for Voldemort” t-shirt and bumper stickers).
This shirt costs $18.50 and is available in men’s and women’s sizes.

While this shirt isn’t Christmas-themed per se, to many people the impending holidays instills a feeling not unlike the sensation of being charged by a Giant Squid and a Grizzly Bear on a bicycle.
