For the few of you reading this to whom it makes absolutely no sense, I suggest going to Penny Arcade and acquainting (or reacquainting) yourselves with that comic and its cast. I then suggest reading through the archives, in their entirety, don't stop for anything—what was that, did we just hit something? Keep going damnit, just keep going.

And admittedly no, the jumper isn't an exact mirror of Tycho's signature blue-striped garment, but it certainly conjures up enough imagery of well over a decade of comics at a glance for me to deem it unsuitable for use in the comic.

Which is a shame, because it is a really nice jumper!

My first thought was, "Wait, doesn't he already have one like that?"

Hadn't even realised how much this reminded me of Penny Arcade. It does look like a nice jumper!

Or, if you don't care about "Penny Arcade", just play "Poker Night at the Inventory". =)

yay Penny arcade

Tyhco is proud of you now. But he is playing poker with Heavy from tf2, Max from Sam and Max , and Strongbad from :D

@Ddraigeneth — Aye, it is a rather nice jumper! Wearing it again right now as a matter of fact!

@Twentydragon & Shinchan — Seriously want to play Poker Night at the Inventory, but know I'd end up spending way too much time getting drawn into it! :P

@RetroDog — Hard for me to comprehend as well (so much so that it did feel a little awkward adding that bit of context there)! Though I know at least a few people who read this comic but either don't read Penny Arcade specifically, or don't read many webcomics in general. Whenever I'm reminded of this, I usually try to squint at them until they're driven to load up a browser and start reading some awesome comics! >:3

Well, it's only US$5 on Steam, and I've been having a lot more fun with it than TF2!
