This is a completely independent idea, even if it does play on people's nostalgia for TMNT.
Oh, I agree that it's a Jatravartid reason to reject a TMNT shirt, but someone went ahead and found the previously rejected Shredder shirt I was talking about. It clearly has as much to do with a video game as this one. I guess I'm just suggesting the rejectionator should be consistent...
BTW, I disagree that it "doesn't reference TMNT at all" on two grounds. The neon-green mutation slime, for one. Also, not only are those ninja weapons (as pointed out by someone else), but they're the exact 4 weapons wielded by the actual TMNT's. Hmm.

Or there wasnt a 'no videogame' rule those weeks where TMNT shirts made it through? I didn't check, just offering an alternate hypothesis.
