Well, boombim, Zach might have used this in his standup years ago, but I doubt he said it publicly before 1993, which is when I first made this joke in the form of "I like them before they even existed!" ...it's really a young person thing (I'm old now) and probably thousands of people think of it on their own every year. Still, it makes me sad that I didn't win $500 for this slogan. ALL of my slogans are fantastic, but I guess you only win if you get a game plan with 20 or 30 of your closest friends on Threadless supporting each other. F that.

Zach Galifianakis did this joke years ago. It was used in his standup. You can google it.
"I like to go into really hip record stores and ask for CDs of bands that have never existed"
I ran across it in a youtube video that was dated either 2006 or 2007 by the uploader which means the joke is most likely even older than that. I couldnt find it again because theres so many..but its his joke for sure. You should pay him some kick back for ripping off his material and making money from it or at least give him credit!!

Never heard of that site but I came up with this slogan in early 2007 I think, when was that comic created?

The short-haired girl's face in the first picture is EPIC.
