Ha ha. Very funny.

Licensing nightmare.

So you may have noticed a few new items on the site last Friday. You may have even wanted to purchase one or two. Then you looked at the calendar.

GOTCHA.

Sorry if we broke your heart, but we do sometimes turn these implausible ideas into the real thing--like the Tauntaun Sleeping Bag--so you should take a moment to vote on your favorite. We'll see what we can do about making your dream into a reality--unless it's the Edible Gummy iPhone Case, in which case you can give up dreaming now because it was incredibly difficult to make even the proof of concept. (Hans still has nightmares.)

If it helps, you may take comfort in the fact that we might've been pranked on Friday, too. We're choosing to believe this customer service call was a prank, anyways, because the alternative is just too horrible. Click here to experience the magic of Dan expertly handling a conversation no one should ever have to field. (It's a 291KB mp4.)

DANCE BREAK!

Here's another joke we can share with you: a little old skool chain mail spoof we sent around to some our most our awesome customers on Thursday, 3/31, to remind them we were up to no good on Friday. We don't mind telling you we had way too much fun writing that masterpiece--and now the world knows you really can't have too many dancing Fry gifs.

Three bits of house keeping:

1. The t-shirt monkey would like you to know there are still some free-with-$15-purchase limited edition Ken Jennings-inspired t-shirts in stock so if you were on the fence this weekend (or wondered if they were a prank), now would be the time to snap one up.

2. Our 3D Giveaway winners have been contacted so now we can proudly announce them here: Elisha H of South Burlington VT, who won a Nintendo Virtual Boy and $1,000 ThinkGeek shopping spree, and Miriam V of Elgin IL who won the black Nintendo 3DS. Thanks to all our entrants, and so sorry if you didn't win the Virtual Boy. Surely there's another way you give yourself a headache.

3. By popular--nay, overwhelming request--here are the graphics that went on the side of the ice cream truck in the Star Wars Lightsaber Popsicle video. "Admiral Snackbar" is probably our favorite, but "Ewoko Taco" is pretty sweet, too. A million exploding Alderaan thanks to Walls360 who printed the graphics overnight and then hand-delivered them to the set the next day.

meaningless icon! Is it sad that i want all of those to be made into real ice cream treats?
gigabrain said this 1263 days ago.
meaningless icon! I Lol'd this year. I think the video for the Sith Lightsaber popcicles was the best.

meaningless icon! Dago-balls? I'm not sure how obscure 'dago' is as an ethnic slur, but the first two Google results for me are urbandictionary and wikipedia. And it was on the side of an ice-cream truck? I know it's a take on 'Dagobah', but...wow.

meaningless icon! ...I honestly want that wonderful bonsai cat.....and the Apple store....and the 3DS....
TheWordMaster said this 1263 days ago.
meaningless icon! I wish those Ice Cream graphics were a little bigger so I could use them as my iPhone background =D

meaningless icon! @eboll: That, or they're making a HP6 movie reference, and they forgot the r and n: Harry: Dragon balls!
TheWordMaster said this 1263 days ago.
meaningless icon! It's cruel to tease a pregnant woman with something as delicious as an ewoko taco!
lessthan3spock said this 1263 days ago.
meaningless icon! The Admiral SnackBar looks like it's a trap of chocolatey goodness.
ashleystew said this 1263 days ago.
meaningless icon! Oh the irony, an icecream truck just rolled by my house.
geek3000 said this 1263 days ago.
meaningless icon! EWOK TACOOOO!!! THAT'S AMAZING!
LenoreElise said this 1263 days ago.
meaningless icon! Please make the Star Wars ice cream snack pictures into stickers. I don't need the actual popsicles, but stickers would be AWESOME. ...even more awesome - you! ...and free copies of said stickers if you actually use my idea. O:-)
LibraryYoda said this 1263 days ago.
meaningless icon! I wanted the Apple Store, too! -- And I'm a PC!
Pamellion said this 1263 days ago.
meaningless icon! Mmmm...Wampa Claws
RachieZ said this 1263 days ago.
meaningless icon! I would so buy some of those as stickers!
amy.gee.kers said this 1263 days ago.
meaningless icon! Kudos to anyone that helped to chime in these delicious treat titles. They're amazing, and some graphics would probably go well as a bumper sticker :P
NachoManLance said this 1263 days ago.
meaningless icon! I am unbelievably hurt that I didn't get an email.. <sadface > :-( </ sadface>
LarisaK said this 1263 days ago.
meaningless icon! Love these, brilliant idea!
dragonflower7 said this 1263 days ago.
meaningless icon! I want the Apple Store as well! And yes, the idea of stickers for the ice cream treats would be awesome!
Brekke said this 1263 days ago.
meaningless icon! IT'S A SNACK!
geekonator said this 1263 days ago.
meaningless icon! No Popsicle for Vader. LMAO! <3 it.
LarisaK said this 1263 days ago.
meaningless icon! mmm create them you must
HeavyMuzic said this 1263 days ago.
meaningless icon! Hoping that Lucas gets flooded with requests for the Light Saber Popsicles, even though I'm a diehard Trekker. However, what I really wished were real were those Chocolate Zombie Bunnies. Those would have been awesome to give out three Sundays from now (and maybe a little too appropriate).
DedlyEdly said this 1263 days ago.
meaningless icon! Sith cicles FTW!!! I think this might get more Dark Side converts than just mere cookies....
dreface said this 1263 days ago.
meaningless icon! I lost! *cries*
GeekyReader said this 1263 days ago.
meaningless icon! Uh, the Falcon Fudgebar is not a fudgebar - it's an ice cream sandwich, so it probably should have been "Ice Cream Tuscan Sandwich"
katuroo said this 1263 days ago.
meaningless icon! Cool except you forgot "hoth 'n dos" and "taun taun horn"
willjaq said this 1263 days ago.
meaningless icon! Oh Goddess I could go some tie biters right about now, and that Ewoko Taco is just all kinds of awesome!
Miss Stabby said this 1263 days ago.
meaningless icon! Who built the iStore? How long did it take?
computerCynthia said this 1263 days ago.
meaningless icon! Stickers would be awesome, but I would definitely rock a tshirt with the whole selection on it.

meaningless icon! Listening to Dan's call brings back memories of providing dial-up tech support to Mennonites. That guy is GOOD!
scott.pack said this 1263 days ago.
meaningless icon! oh dear god....PLEASE make these for real!!! I demand it in the name of Science!!! Stickers or magnets would also be ok. :)
tenaciouslola said this 1262 days ago.
meaningless icon! Please! Make the Lightsaber Pop-Sicle Mold for real !!!
Barrette-Man said this 1262 days ago.
meaningless icon! "Dago-Balls" - might need to rethink that one, it's unintentionally a racist comment (in my country it is anyway - "dago" being an Italian or Greek person - and why would you be eating his balls?).
Omegaville said this 1262 days ago.
meaningless icon! I would buy those ice cream graphics as stickers as well! I wonder if we can get blue bunny and lucas arts together on some of these...
Soloran said this 1262 days ago.
meaningless icon! I can't get the call to work :( Any chance at a different format, or text version for reading enjoyment? kthanxbai<3
Kaysuhdilluh said this 1262 days ago.
meaningless icon! When Disney reopens Star Tours, they absolutely need to Create a few of these for sale in the parks. Let's start lobbying, I think this is our best chance. Though I expect Dago-Balls will NOT make the cut.
nilzed said this 1262 days ago.
meaningless icon! I still love the Lightsaber Popsicles. My son started to beg me for them when he saw it. I would so have to get them or even if you could just get the molds and the handles and then we do the rest.... Although if the Popsicle pictures become stickers, I so want as well. Added bonus, my 3 yo and 8 yo walk around saying "No Popsicle for Vader."
Bean Si said this 1262 days ago.
meaningless icon! Hmmmm....I have a Millenium Falcon cookie cutter.....okay, now I want to go home use it to make "Falcon Fudgebars". I'm thinking chocolate cookie with vanilla fudge swirl ice cream in the middle.
risforrose said this 1262 days ago.
meaningless icon! Gah! This is bad....now I want that Ben and Jerry's carton in the freezer-no, I gotta resist...mmmph....ugh...OK OK I'll just take a nibble...maybe two. -_- U torturing meh here, ThinkGeek.
TheWordMaster said this 1262 days ago.
meaningless icon! Wow I'd have bought those Arsenic Sea Monkeys but, with that cheapo pipette you've put in there I can't have any faith in the scientific validity of the methods you've used,
photovoltage said this 1262 days ago.
meaningless icon! i so would get that alarm clock
straxxus02 said this 1262 days ago.
meaningless icon! This makes want to make my own sith Popsicles and a wampa claw and a ewako tako and well all those treats
Taronyu said this 1260 days ago.
meaningless icon! i think what you should do is make them into large or decent sized magnets so that we can sneak up on an ice cream truck and slap em on, or hav efun on the fridge
Timareno said this 1259 days ago.
