For quite a while, I have thought it would be a good idea to have a gas mask laying around just in case.  I have never got around to actually buying one, but one of these days I will make a trip to the army surplus store and pick one up.  However, I would much more prefer to have one of these awesome Portal inspired gas masks, even if they may not be as good as the real thing.

For those that want one of these awesome Aperture Science Portal gas masks, DeviantART user Two Horns United is taking names on a waiting list and will be making them this summer.  The bad news is that they cost $280.  But can you really put a price on something cool like this?

Having never played Diablo, I can’t say I have been that interested in checking out the new Diablo III game, especially with all of the server problems and account hacking issues that I have been hearing about.  Instead, I figured it would be enjoyable to just poke fun at the botched video game launch with some bathroom humor.

I don’t know who did this to an out of order urinal, but if this was at some place that people will understand the reference like a video game retailer, then I would say this is absolutely genius!  Error 37:  You can’t pee right now!

If Pokemon isn’t your thing, you probably didn’t care too much about the Pokemon coffee cup sizes I posted a while back, but if you are a Legend of Zelda fan, than you are sure to flip over this awesome set of Link coffee cups!  I’m not sure what coffee house is serving coffee in awesome Link cups like this, but I would definitely visit that place often if it was near me, even if I don’t drink coffee!

Depending on what size coffee you want, you can order an 8-bit Link coffee (12 oz.), a Wind Waker Link coffee (16 oz.) or Skyward Sword Link coffee(20 oz).  Not being a Wind Waker fan, I would probably go with any size but that one.

One of the iconic toys from my childhood that you don’t hear much about these days is Mr. Potato Head.  I guess it makes sense that you don’t hear much about him anymore since most of today’s kids are obsessed with video games and the internet.  However, one of the things that made Mr. Potato Head such a great toy was that he was versatile and you could make him whatever you want.

This is how Flickr user Ginger Troll keeps him relevant even today, by turning the toy into a Big Daddy from Bioshock.  I think if the creators of Mr. Potato Head had parts so that kids could make things like the Big Daddy from Bioshock, the old toy might still have some life in it yet!  Or maybe I am just longing to be a kid again.

It always makes my day when Global Geek News readers send me something to post that shows off their geeky side!

In this case, GGN reader Justin Quebedeaux sent me these pictures of his awesome Legend of Zelda owl tattoo he got on his arm.  I love the look of the Hylian Crest on the chest of the owl.  The tattoo artist that inked this amazing tattoo, who you can see in the lower right image, is James Laing of Turning Point Tattoos.  I’d say he did a pretty good job!

I can’t really say I have ever been a huge fan of non-traditional shaped blankets, but next to the Legend of Zelda Ocarina blanket I posted about recently, this is one of the coolest blankets I have ever seen!  It might not be as practical as my snuggie, but what baby really needs a blanket with sleeves anyway?

Well, for those that have a love for Yoshi and are in the market for a baby blanket, Etsy seller SheriBFabulous is selling this awesome Yoshi Egg afghan blanket for $150.  This blanket is 4′x3′ so unless you are a really small person, this is probably too small for you no matter how much you may want it for yourself.
