Disclaimer: I have nothing to do with this, I just thought it was a bad-ass shirt.

I wonder if there would be any sort of reaction from the GS employees.

slightly amusing...

but anyone who would buy this shirt, let alone wear it into a gamestop, needs something better to do with their time

Whatever happened to shirts that are clever, like "Show me your b00bs" or the tuxedo print one that we've all come to know and love?

Hey, pestering people to reserve Atelier Iris 3 is just as annoying as imprisoning their entire family.

Slightly amusing. People who buy that shirt think they are "sticking it to the man" (just like most Mac users). :p

That's not so much "awesome" as it is borderline offensive.

I have a shirt that says,"I'm in a band, show me your hooters!"

But now I'm ready for D/P, excited and terrified. It's going to eat so many hours of my life.

I don't understand why Gestappo has anything to do with it. GS employees go around getting information about what games I have reserved?
I wonder if the creator put more than 5 seconds of forethought into this design...

So you've never used a term like "Grammar Nazi," or something similar? Something to the effect of: when someone pesters you endlessly about something they're a "________ Nazi?"

What, too soon?

Well after "Show me your boobs" and "...No Fat Chicks" it is pretty much down hill from there.

I would be embarassed to wear this shirt personally. I do see some slight humor in it though.

Damn you xevious...

Damn you Xevious... damn you to hell.....

Nope.

If this was clever, its towing the line of appropriateness would be more forgivable to me. But since it's just stupid, I gotta wonder why someone would go there. There's absolutely no connection between GameStop and Nazis in any way, shape, or form. Last I checked, the Nazis didn't ask the Jews to reserve games or buy used game warranties. Nor do GS employees hold genocidal goals.

The amount of thought went into this was along these lines: "Hey! GameStop and Gestapo both have a G and an S in the words! LOL!"

You know, the Nazis had pieces of flair that they made the Jews wear.

On a related note, anyone who would cheer for a crappy team like San Jose instead of a legendary team like New Jersey, needs something better to do with their time

I think people overexaggerate GS employee's asking you to reserve something.

I mean...I occasionally get asked and when I do a simple "no" is good enough.

you are a pillar of the video game/gaming community.  

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

 

It's because of pillars like you, I remain in this community.  Thank you!

 

Spoken like a true pillar. The community sends its many thanks.

 

How dare you speak to the pillar of our community that way. If he says you're a closet vita fan he knows what he's talking about.

Just put in your headphones and never make eye contact....you don't need to pay $20 for a shirt.

Totally agree. I still wouldn't wear it, though... maybe just into a GameStop once or something... but even that...


Anyways I've been asked twice to reserve a game, both times I said "no". It was pretty easy.

The act of saying "no" is a breeze.

What I resent is Gamestop using me as market research without paying me for it.

I'm not saying the shirt's a laugh riot, but you're kinda missing the point of "metaphor" here. "Gamestop employees who constantly ask you to reserve games are LIKE Gestapo constantly asking to see your papers." Okay, that's really simile, but still. Dig?
