woooo! another first sucker. thanks wootalyzer!
I've always felt the blue shell was a way of pulling off a bit of last minute cheating.
If this was available as a pullover sweater I'd be all over it. Alas, Brilliant designs just won't fit in my already overstuffed woot wardrobe
haha love it! And love the copy for it, too. Rainbow Road reminds me of the N64 days!

Just pay attention and brake. Then it will get the guy behind you.

I'd need the premium insurance for sure. Falling off the road, any road, is what I do best in these sorts of games.
I'm curious if there's some secret nerd code in the license plate. I'm not enough of a video game nerd to recognize anything. But now that I've noticed the door handle placement, that's gonna bother me. I am a pretty big engineering nerd....unless that's what left of the mirror?
Where's CowboyDann and his explainations?!

Hey, wait a minute, he's right! Where is Cowboydan to help explain this shirt? Aren't we overdue for one of his handy-dandy little shirt tutorials?
He shall be remembered always.

He just got married today. He's occupied.

OH NO. SocalDave got married today; CBD most definitely did not get married today.
Right, so I haven't played anything Nintendo in a while, much less Mario Kart... and had to look it up.
But http://mariokart.wikia.com/wiki/Blue_Shell for those also not in the loop. I guess the object caused mass nerd rage, such that the game creators had to make an announcement in defense of the item to keep the game "unpredictable."
Sadly, I would have gotten this a bit better if we had a super-hero flying off and a piece of building dropped on a car. Different nerd strokes for different nerd folks.
If only the shirt itself alerted you of the incoming shell...
Doing a quick Google search, the license plate is a model of a lamp that hangs over a pool table.
The plot thickens.
Nor do I but I have an excuse,I don't get about half of these shirts!
This is the price you pay for running out ahead of everyone with "skill". How DARE you, sir or madam? Mario Kart is about bunching everyone together as tightly as possible for maximum insanity, NOT for taking a lead so large it feels like a casual Sunday drive. For if you do, you will hear the sound of the impending blue shell. And you will only be able to blame yourself.
Great color, great design. Might have to shell out for this one :3
There is a trick for dealing with the blue shell when it is about to strike, at least on the Wii. Right as it is about to get you, flip the controller upwards and instead of wrecking you will just slow down a bit.
But I, too, would like to know if there is a code to that license plate that I don't get.

Actually, the license plate number originates from Italy.
This shirt is a more realistic take on the damage a blue turtle shell would do in the real world.
I'll be back to a real computer tonight. I hate macs

I didn't exactly get this either, of course I never made it past the original Nintendo and Super Mario Bros 2... Bummer it's so low on the selling scale though.
Bwaaahaha on Cowboy getting married... Mrs. CBD?
