The dog says 01110111011011110110111101100110!

In our efforts to achieve World Domination, we've realized we left out an important segment of the geek community--the pets that own the geeks. The adorable, drool-covered power behind the throne, as it were. (Or falling into the throne, as is the case with some of our klutzy kitties.) From super-reflective leashes to automagic kitteh lasers to an iPhone for your pooch, we've got your pet covered.

Prank Powder Decepti-Candy - Deviously delicious candy

If your images were on you'd see Prank Powder Decepti-Candy - Deviously delicious candy

Four tubes of colorful powder candy. Such pretty names, too, like Sweet Pixie Dust and Ultimate Unicorn Sprinkles. Completely harmless sounding so anyone will gladly eat them. Then they will learn the dark secret. First, the colors don't match the flavors (red is lemonade, yellow is cherry, etc.). But that's not all. One is super sour, one foams in your mouth, one stains your mouth a color, and one does all three. Why? Because candy is dandy and pranky is swanky. Oh, and they taste great too, so that part isn't a prank (but it may stop folks from hitting you in revenge, so it's good).

Moshi Voice Activated Alarm Clocks - The clock you talk to

Talking clocks are all the rage--you see them all the time on Star Trek, but now they're beginning to appear on store shelves. They can tell you the time in a clear voice, but if anybody caught you talking back to your clock they'd probably have you bouncing around in a rubber room in Arkham. Well, now you can tell the caped crusader he can just stay up there in the rafters, 'cause Moshi is a clock you can actually talk to! Give it commands like "Set Time" or ask it the current temperature. It hears you. It gets you. Check out the demo. It'll blow your tiny mind.

Thingamagoop 2 - Retro robo synth... now with extra awesome

If your images were on you'd see Thingamagoop 2 - Retro robo synth... now with extra awesome

The Thingamagoop is an awesome little light-controlled analog synthesizer. The Thingamagoop uses its LEDacle (an LED-tipped tentacle) to flash light (at different speeds) into its photocell. The photocell talks to the main oscillator and you get blips and bleeps of pure electronic wonderment. You following so far? Ok, well, the new Thingamagoop 2 adds analog and digital oscillators, an improved speaker, and an Arduino Programmer jack. Buy the Thingamagoop 2 fully assembled, or save some bucks and buy the kit to assemble it yourself.

iPhone Appstand - A throne fit for an iPhone

It's a frame for your iPhone. But wait, that's not all! It's an elite throne for your iPhone. Simply slide your iPhone into the Appstand to get the most out of the tens of thousands of apps you love while your phone charges. The touchscreen, buttons, and ports (even camera!) are all accessible while it's docked and with six brightly colored AppMats, you can show your flair. Put it on clock mode, use it to display the cover art of your iTunes, have it cycle through photos of your loved ones, and pull up the calculator to do some quick mathematics. You can even chat away on speakerphone while your iPhone is nestled securely in the Appstand. Most importantly, you'll always know where you put your phone.

Fusion Food Pod - Cooking your dinner in the belly of an alien fungus

If your images were on you'd see Fusion Food Pod - Cooking your dinner in the belly of an alien fungus

When you're flying through outer space in your warpspeed starship, and you're hungry for some exotic local eats, what do you do? Your replicator only has Federation recipes. You could roast over your plasma engines, but your dinner would be radioactive. There's always Milliways, but it's too far away. The tastiest cuisine in this area of space is a stuffed silicon space fungi filled with various flora and arthropods, boiled in an aqueous solution of hydrogen and oxygen and served with a delightful orange beurre blanc. We've recently received a large shipment of these silicon food-pods with which you too can cook some exotic alien cuisine!

Six Degrees of Inspiration - Six new geek t-shirts

Count Rugen can tick off this week's new shirts on one hand. For the rest of us, it'll take two. We have three men's shirts and three designs exclusively for women.

You'll have to click the link to see exactly how that works.

Phoenix Roller Coaster - Over 4 feet of real, working roller coaster!

Roller coasters are quite possibly the best thing worth waiting several hours in line to do. Even if the ride is a minute long, the amount of pure awesome crammed into that one minute is enough to make you reel for days. Days!! From the rickety wooden coasters of old to the new-fangled, flippy, upside-down feet-danglers of today, we ThinkGeek monkeys can't resist a good coaster ride, which is why we love our Phoenix Roller Coaster. The kit contains all the parts to create your very own 4-foot-long thrill ride and you don't have to be an expert hobby wrangler to do it. And the best part? The shoulder restraints in the train automatically lift to let in your passengers and lower again before the ride takes off.

Magic Missile and Fireball Soaps - Saving throw for cleanliness

If your images were on you'd see Magic Missile and Fireball Soaps - Saving throw for cleanliness

Oh no, a Dirt Devil is approaching. You can't get soiled--you are the realm's last hope for peace. But you know what to do. You whip out your Magic Missile Soap, lather up in a nearby waterfall, and attack. A hit! The Dirt Devil retaliates with the last of its strength, perishing as it attacks. The dice are against you; you are killed. But wait, you pluck out the D20 embedded in your Magic Missile Soap and roll a successful saving throw. You are saved, the realm rejoices, you smell great from your bath, and you still have a Fireball Soap in reserve.

It's about ADAM, my friend - Those who gots it and those who don't

Two more awesome collector's items for fans of Bioshock 2! The Big Daddy Plush Doll looks just like the doll that Little Sister is seen carrying in the teaser images for the game. This doll really looks like it was cobbled together from items Little Sister found around Rapture with its baseball head, wire frame cage, corkscrew arm and more. The EVE Hypo Syringe lights up blue and will convince you to shoot up and run around your office, pretending it's Rapture. Look out for Big Sister from HR. She's nasty.

Deadly Alarm Clocks Will Wake You - Or else

If your images were on you'd see Deadly Alarm Clocks Will Wake You - Or else

Some people are satisfied to wake up to a simple beeping... but not you. As a loyal ThinkGeek customer you require awakening in a much more creative manner and unsurprisingly we're here to deliver. The Danger Bomb Alarm Clock comes from Japan and challenges you to diffuse a simulated bomb in order to shut off the alarm. If disarming a bomb won't rouse you, we're also offering the Alien Hunt Alarm Clock. This sci-fi inspired clock features an alien egg which hatches and begins laughing at you evilly until you shut it up by blasting it with the included light gun. Either clock is guaranteed to wake up even the most die-hard late night gamer.

USB Light-Up Alien - Big Chap's squat cousin

This is a great cube toy for the Alien fan. Imagine Big Chap, squished down to dwarf size and you have this guy, who we affectionately call Little Chap. With a 1 meter long USB cable, you can even reach to plug him into the back of your tower or docking station. Every so often, his mouth will open, glowing with an evil red glow, and the inner mouth will extend out, reminding you that at any moment, you could die a horrible, horrible death. Want even more fun? Perch him on the top of your cube wall to face your cube neighbor for maximum creep-out value.
