Of course, Flappy Bird was an addictive yet awful game (by gamers’ standards) that nobody will be talking about by next week. And the whole $100,000 Flappy Bird iPhones, well, those have run into a giant killer green pipe, too: As CNet points out, it’s actually a violation of eBay’s terms of service to sell certain intellectual property you don’t own – like, for instance, mobile games. Which explains why those absurd listings were removed from the site soon after they made headlines.
If you’re somehow still wondering – yes, the $10,000 Flappy Bird shirt is a joke. But we had to ask: Has anyone actually bought one?
”Unfortunately, due to the unforeseen circumstances involving the passing of Flappy Bird, the digital community is still in a state of mourning and disbelief,” said Wendinger. ”Therefore, we have yet to sell one of these shirts, but even with my employee discount, I am saving my pennies.”
Well, that makes one of us.
If you’d like to see a bunch of terrible Flappy Bird knockoffs, a Sesame Street Flappy Bert game, or read about five games you could play instead of buying this t-shirt, check out our Flappy Bird page.
