Which makes one wonder, "Why wouldn't he want people to think he's French? Is it a bad thing to be French?" Do you see where I'm going with this?
Yes I do. In some cultures and parts of America, homosexuality is shunned upon. The reason I said the shirt seemed gay was because it is pink which is a color associated with homosexuals and "Bad Man" has certain sexual connotations which I don't feel like going into.

I most certainly am not. Women FTW.

No, he isn't. Vegeta was made to wear that shirt against his will, which is part of the joke.

I know! I know! I was just joking! :wink:

I'm Muslim and in my culture homosexuality is forbidden, although I just think that is wrong and I accept homosexuality. I'm not homosexual, but I sometimes wear pink shirts and am proud! That badman shirt is mine!

Though I wouldn't really wear it if it never actually happened in DragonBall...

Whoa... I had a Trunks in that exact same style. I've no clue where it is now, but I think I remember a Teen Gohan in the same crane machine at Walmart. :lol:

There's a URL in the corner: http://www.moeyo.com/

EDIT: It's in Japanese and Babblefish refuses to translate it. So, I'm unable to find the exact page.

True, I'd wear this instead:

I wouldn't wear that either. If I did people would think I'm gay.
Pink isn't the realm of girls, anymore. Guys wear it with no problem now.

I can say the shirt wouldn't make anyone look gay. Might make them look stupid (more because of the font/text size than than anything), but not gay.

The Freeza plushy, I must have it!
... Maybe later.

Those are actually kinda freakishly cool. That's like a design you'd find for something onstage at a GWAR concert.

Holy turd. Those are Dragon Ball wades. They're obviously bootlegs, but I never expected to see something like that.
I wipe it off the tile, the light is brighter this time, everything is 3D blasphemy.
My eyes are red and gold, the hair is standing straight up, this is not the way I picture me.
I can't control my shakes, how the hell did I get here? Something about this, so very wrong.
I have to laugh out loud, I wish I didn't like this. Is it a dream or a memory?

I can't find it either, it also seems to be a news site, instead of an actual store, which is a shame? Can nobody give a direct source?

I should have mentioned this before, but I don't think the Freeza or Cell plushy are out for sell yet. This is blog I found the pictures on.
