Geek Apparel of the Week: Quidditch and Poked to Death



?? Red Bubble has these great Quidditch shirts for sake. There’s a design for each house — I picked Ravenclaw because I think the raven is the nicest design, but Slytherin has a snake head, Hufflepuff has a badger head, and Gryffindor has a snitch, because they’re fucking assholes. Seriously. What if there was a football team whose logo was just a football? They’d be fucking assholes, too. Each shirt is $24 here.


?? “Don’t be too proud of this technological terror you’ve constructed. The
ability to destroy a planet is insignificant next to the power of Jigglypuff.” It’s $10 at Ript, but today only.
