Now it turns out that ThinkGeek is giving the public what they want. As Laughing Squid points out, the company has decided to make a real tie based on the concept.
The product page now includes the following note:
“Hey! You! Quit emailing us to make this for REAL already 😉 We promise, we’ll make it. In fact we are already working on it. You’ve just forced our hand! Click the ’email me when available’ link above to get notified! Thanks! I guess the joke is on us this year :p”
Interestingly, the price has gone up from $15 to $20. I guess there’s a $5 premium on making dreams come true.
