yeah, you really don't need to know the french to understand this - its a pardoy of a mega famous painting. good stuff little g, but i'm a little dubious that the image is lifted straight from the game (correct me if i'm wrong!) 5$ nonetheless

wombatgal

Awesome, $5.

If you want to know the English translation, um, check the title.

Thanks for the comments everyone. I don't know what happened to my submission comment but basically I said that this is my take on a painting by one of my favorite artists Rene Magritte.

Also, Staffell, This image I actually drew in illustrator. The whole thing is vector, but of course it comes from Mario ;)

AngelMonkey

blonde8007

i love youuuuuuuuuuu

nicole786

finally, a mario shirt that would look awesome on a girl! gimme! 5$

lazesummerstone

even thought its a artsy reference most people should still get it, it's spoofed on things like TINY TOONS for crying out loud!
But I'm afraid if i wore this I'd get beat up for being an artschool nerd and a videogame nerd. it's like 2 in one!
I'm giving it 5$ anyway! Jocks can die

this is actually pretty cool - love both the references you combined. Nice idea!

pwaulie

yay for a repeated theme with a different design.... 4$

squintygirl

I like how you've managed to bring together two different kinds of nerds together with this surrealist Nintendo philosophy. Hurray!

I think it's an icon we all know of, without being too obvious (mario, 80's )
Great!!!

Verdana

I would just like to say that I had to skip over this three times before it hit me in the side of the head like a pot full of cold spaghetti noodles and I finally got it.

But now I love it with a love that words cannot express. =]

I hate the fact that due to a glitch this now has the first comment showing up as mine. It's not mine... I feel like I should go on record saying that.

pector,
I agree. I did not post the comment "english please?" It is a glitch with threadless. Someone else did and now the first comment in a sub after the site redesign had defaulted to me. Totally sucks cause it makes me look like an idiot.

PacificLight

Just for the record, it doesn't make you sound like an idiot. I thought you were pre-emptively mocking all of the people who've never heard of art. Evar.

brownstar

Uh, I had no idea about the Magritte reference, but bought it because I thought it was funny in the sense that it is not a regular pipe, but instead, a very dangerous look-a-like.

kyrstine

i did not know it's from a famous painting.
i own this, and i am blessed that i do =D

TreeFiddy

wow i just found out what this meant, cause im learning about magritte in art.
