For some odd reason this shirt doesn't really seem funny.

Neat, but seems really close to being a rip on Portal.

haha, this is awesome. if it weren't for the color, i would definitely buy it. is the actual shirt the same color as the graphic? if it were a truer orange, i think i would get it.

I liked both Sore Thumbs and Loved By the Sea (wore that yesterday), but I'm honestly not too big of a fan of this shirt...I'm not quite sure what kills it for me.

Oh well. 'Gratz geekfactor!

It's a play on the recently released Valve game called Portal. You'd have to play the game to get it.

Heh, totally guessed this would be tonight. For those confused about this, like I was, read my blog entry here I put a link to the eerie ending song up too. Interesting game.

haha i like the "aperture" reference in the description.
though i did get somewhat nauseated watching portal... those weird physics hurt my brain.

The portal reference is awesome. I'd prefer a weighted companion cube shirt, though (and one that's less orange).

I'd pay 5 dollars for it. I'd pay 10 if the Cake is a liar part wasn't on there.

I haven't played Portal, and this is still the first shirt in a long time I've considered funny. I'm right on the fence for this one.

It seems like this is a portal shirt made by someone who heard about it instead of playing it. "The cake is a liar" ??? Why not the real phrase: "The cake is a lie".

Thanks! I'm not much of a gamer so that explains it. Owell, guess I'll go spend my $10 elsewhere today...

I'd much rather have it simply copy off of Portal than be like it is, but oh well. The shirt is for those that are still alive.

Untrue. I've never played portal, and likely never will, but this design is the first woot I've mindlessly bought without looking back. It's a simple design with an absurdist concept.

Doesn't the shirt's caption seem to defeat the whole purpose of this shirt?

I agree...
I guess it's changed just so slightly to evade disqualification.

Holy crap! Thanks voters, I thought this might squeak out a third place finish, but this was very unexpected. And awesome!

And yes, this is a Portal parody. Not a rip-off, a parody. It mocks the core concepts of Portal (and... cake in general).

It's a play on the concept of portal. The cake is lying about being nutritious. At least, that is how I interpreted it.

Why does everyone have to give their 2-cents on a shirt. I doubt anyone cares if this shirt isnt the right color or if it is a rip from portal. Which as a matter of fact is prob what the designer was aiming for. So buy the damn shirt, if not dont say anything. BTW it is a great shirt

I think it is true orange, and that's why I'm staying away. Darn Check this photo out: http://www.americanapparel.net/storefront/images/detail/serve.asp?media=2102_Orange.jpg

Because we're assuming the cake talked. Get it? An inanimate object trying to talk?? A parody with thought put into it? Nevermind, I guess you didn't.

But if you play that game, the cake never talks nor does it call itself nutritious. The computer promises you cake all through. Once you escape you find the phrase "the cake is a lie" written all over the walls. Seems like a missed reference. Almost but not quite...
