, you owe me a World of Tanks
, makers of fine gaming-themed t-shirts and accessories (check out www.jinx.com
) have announced a partnership with Wargaming
to produce a line of World of Tanks
t-shirts. I've long postulated that tanks make everything better. Now I get to see if that applies to clothing as well. Lacking any evidence to the contrary, I have no choice but to assume that it will. There just isn't one scenario that tanks can't improve. Clothing counts as a "scenario" in this example so via the transitive property, tanks improve clothing. That's not me saying it, it's science.
Late March is the target for availability of World of Tanks
clothing and accessories, and they'll be available in mass-market retailers, department stores, online stores, and specialty retailers. Unfortunately, there don't seem to be any pictures of said clothing and accessories, so I'll say it again - PICs or it didn't happen, World of Tanks
