Think fast, it's a pun alert!

There's something fishy about this shirt!

The reason people think he's there: to take over all of New York, cover it in ink, and make us all his human slave worshipers.


The real reason he's up there: Protesting the lack of funding for the C.A.A.O. or Cephalopod Amputee Awareness Organization.

So many thoughts...swinging somewhere between nicely cartoony color, is that too far to go on a first date and gee, cousin Kraken there looks a little acrophobic.

What makes this a Kraken rather than just your garden variety giant octopus?

I think it's a play on the classic King Kong climbing the Empire State Building motif.

Armed with my trusty Game Boy Advance, I distinctly remember fighting Kraken in Golden Sun, except that it was purple. (The thought of more than one Kraken makes me quiver.) Hell, I remember becoming so frustrated at trying to beat this damn thing. If it could talk, it would've said, "Hey man, here's your ass back."

Uh Oh i hope Kraken knows what he is doing encroaching on King Kong's territory like that. This might develop into a Money Vs Squid war, if that were a possibility.

See, I always told everyone that land-octopi were humanity's greatest threat, but they never listened. Well, now they know.

Does anyone else see a face on the octopus? Particularly, it looks like George C Scott to me...

That's all well and good, but this is a kraken not an octopus! What's the plural of kraken then, anyway? Kraki? Krakenses? Kraktopodes?

And on a rather unrelated note, how long do you think he will be able to stay up there? Probly not much more than 11 hours 43 minutes, I'm thinking.

Maybe its actually a normal sized octopus with a really small model of the empire state building. And also, its in a fish tank.

Krake is singular and Kraken is plural. Or maybe it's the other way; not sure.

Edit: http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kraken says Kraken is plural and Krake is singular, but it isn't talking about the mythical creature.

Is the shirt in the picture actually black, or navy like the description says? I swear it looks black. It's confusing.

It's definitely navy. If you pull up another shirt that was on black (like Minor Modifications) in another tab and click back and forth you'll see the difference...the navy looks kind of like a washed out black in their cartoon template... It looks like a real navy when you get the actual shirt.

That octopus really should be attacking Detroit! In revenge of all of his little brothers being desecrated at Red Wings games.

Can someone tell me what the womens shirts look like? Are they basically the same as the mens shirts, just sized differently?

Oops, my Tiara slipped!

Being of the Y Chromosome end of things, I don't know from personal experience, but it's my understanding that they are cut with a wider chest and narrower waist, to fit better over certain secondary sexual attributes. Standard 'women's tee' design, with the caveat that the shirts are made smaller than many.

A little disappointed they only come with *two* sleeves, though.. because, you know, an octopus/pode wearing one of these would be awesome.
