I get this mail all the time and I want to finally comment on it here in a news post. This particular one comes from a reader named Alex.
You should make a shirt for your store like the one Gabe has. all yellow with Pac-man.
I’d pay like a billion dollars for one of those. or, y’know… four… somewhere between four and a billion, anyway.
Yeah, you should make one of those.
It’s nice of Alex to offer us a billion dollars for making such a shirt. That money would certainly come in handy when Namco decided to sue us for copyright infringement. There is just no way we can sell a shirt with Pac-Man on it. Trust me, we’ve tried to contact Namco about it. As it turns out they’re kind of a big company and most of the people in charge not only have never heard of Penny Arcade they also don’t speak English. Makes the negotiations kind of difficult.
