My five favourite geek t-shirtsPosted: May 3, 2014 Filed under: On me | Tags: geekery, t-shirts 6 Comments
It says up there at the top of my blog that as well as being a writer and a mother, I’m also a geek. But aside from the occasional Doctor Who reference, I don’t think I’ve flown the flag here as much as I could have.
Also, as mentioned in a recent Top Ten Tuesday, I LOVE T-SHIRTS! Not just boring, plain shirts but ones that say something interesting about the wearer.
So for something different, here, without further ado, are my five favourite geek t-shirts. I own all of these except one, and the one I don’t own has been bought and paid for. I’m just waiting for the internet fairies to drop it at my door.
I’m including buy links, so you can all be as cool as me if you want to (hahaha). Also, so that way I hopefully don’t get smacked for copyright theft. 😉
The first is from that awesome, and these days all-pervasive, computer game: Minecraft. It’s not the only Minecraft t-shirt I own, but it’s the most comfortable. Also, the creeper is sad because someone turned his family into a block of dynamite. Feel the pathos. FEEL IT!
This one’s a little more obscure. Have you seen Joss Whedon’s movie Serenity? Remember the bizarre fruity oaty bar commercial that sends River into a spin? Yeah, that.
Remember Statler and Waldorf, those two grumpy old bastards that gave Fozzie Bear such a hard time? Now they can heckle you in the privacy of your own home. I’ve pretty much worn this shirt to death, sadly.
I like to think that during a zombie apocalypse, Velma would be the one to survive, because she has smarts. Fred would die in a complicated trap of his own devising, and Shaggy would get eaten trying to fix himself a club sandwich. Not sure what happened to Daphne, but it probably involved stopping to fix her hair. (As an aside, my son loves this t-shirt!)
This is the one I’m waiting on. It better arrive soon or it will be dated before I even get to try it on, given the Twelfth Doctor isn’t represented! (Edit: Okay, it arrived! Crisis averted — stand down the search party!)
Do you own awesome t-shirts? Link them in the comments so I can admire (and possibly buy!) them. 🙂
I have way too many to put here, but I’ll link a few 😉

Of those, my favourite is the Statler and Waldorf one. This is my favourite Beaker one – I very nearly bought it last time I did a Threadless order:
OMGosh… I seriously want that Doctor Hoo tee, it’s far too awesome!
Here are a few of my favourites;
They are pretty hard to find with buy links as they were Ript and TeeFury tees which are usually limited runs.
Those are awesome. I love the Fifth Element one!
I think I see the Scooby Doo one in my daughter’s future!
[…] Ten months ago I posted about my geek t-shirt collection (I don’t any regular t-shirts), with pictures of my five favourite geek tees. Sadly, my Statler and Waldorf and Scooby Doo ones have died, and the Minecraft one isn’t fit to leave the house in — although it is still very comfy. (I am wearing it as I draft this.) […]
