Think Geek is the top purveyor of the geeky goods that keep us nerds humming along at a happy pace. Whether it be t-shirts, gadgets or bacon flavored…well…everything, Think Geek provides. This year’s newest batch of products is top notch. Announced today, here’s the skinny on all the new gizmos and treats Think Geek will be selling out of by day’s end.

Hey, did you get it? Today is April 1st, better known as April Fool’s Day, making all of these awesome goodies hoaxes, pranks, fake-outs, but still great examples of things we’d love to see Think Geek selling in the future. And it could happen! Popular products like the Tauntaun Sleeping Bag and the iCade all began as April Fool’s Day pranks. Whose to say the same couldn’t happen with these hilarious ideas,

Angry Birds Pork Rinds are the ultimate in high protein snacking. Since the only other green meat we’ve encountered has been a breakfast meat paired with green eggs, we’re calling these “The Other Green Meat.” Much like green ham, you can eat Angry Birds Pork Rinds here or there. You can eat them anywhere. You can eat them with Red Leader. You can eat them from a bird feeder. You can eat them on a date. You can eat them on a Shirt Plate!

These crispy delicacies were painstakingly collected from the wreckage of exploded green pig flesh by the Pork Remnants Collectors Union 1337. After a bath in a vat of boiling oil, they are seasoned to perfection and packaged in snack sized bags. Break one open and taste the crisp, salty, savory flavor that only green pigs can produce. A truly succulent treat for the discerning mobile gamer.

So when we spotted this amazing Apple Store Playset from PLAYMOBIL™ we were admittedly in a bit of a conundrum. On the one hand, it’s a product designed for children much younger than ourselves. On the other hand, it’s a tiny representation of the store which sells us all the shiny Apple goodies we can’t resist. Then we noticed that the PLAYMOBIL™ iStore includes amazingly tiny iPhones, Macbooks, and iPads. Our resolve began to waver. A quick peek at the miniature Genius Bar and we were feeling a bit woozy. Then we saw the tiny Steve Jobs presenting in the Keynote Theater on the top floor and that was it. Our wallets popped out faster than you can say Jonathan Ive and we plunked down whatever money was needed to own this amazing playset.

Of course, once we had the playset, we had to get the optional Line Pack to simulate our own exciting Apple product launches. Since it comes with a tiny Woz on a tiny Segway, it was a no-brainer. We decided that Apple & PLAYMOBIL™ together is the most unlikely and awesome collaboration ever. It changes everything.

The TaunTaun Sleeping Bag Experience

TaunTT

Oh what a splendid day! Summer is here and so is camping, and with camping comes tents and sleeping bags. So how can you get a Nerdbastard out of the house and into the woods away from his computer, Warcraft, Xbox, and well everything else a Nerdbastard keeps himself out of the sunlight with?? (more…)

Ok. Well The time is now. And with all the waiting and articles Ive been updating, The elusive phantom menace “TaunTaun Sleeping Bags” Came and went. Click here for the order screen. At 99.99 These bad boys are already OUT OF STOCK!! But have a an “Apparent” 1-3 week waiting period and it claims if you order now, you’ll have it in your hands by November 30th…2009 I hope.

While the product may be awesome and worth buying, I am disappointed with the sales savvy of ThinkGeek and all the companies releasing this bad larry. Happy Hunting, this is my final Taun Taun update, I hope you can get one.

“Slice you open like a TaunTaun!! Faster than the autobahn!” Oh, yeah, theres been talk. There’s been pictures. But where is this phantom menace? Is this the stitchwork of some sexy NerdBastardess for only one creepy child to enjoy? When will the sleeping bag I am unashamed to use in front of other adults, hit the streets? Who has the answers? Help me ThinkGeek Pre Order Page, you’re my only hope.

This high-quality sleeping bag looks just like a Tauntaun, complete with saddle, internal intestines and plush lightsaber zipper pull. Now when your kids tell you their favorite Star Wars movie is “Attack of the Clones” you can nestle the wee-ones snug in simulated Tauntaun fur while regaling them with the amazing tale of “Empire Strikes Back”.

In a strange way, the mystery continues. There is no release date nor a pre-order available, only ThinkGeek giving you an email notification! A hoax conjured up by some geek with a sick, twisted sense of humor? Trying to get a whole shitload of emails on their roster to fuck us with our clothes on? No…No…They are too legit for a stunt that stupid. So, in the words of William Shakespeare…”Where the FUCK!… Is my Tauntaun sleeping bag!!!”
