I had to look this up - not being a gamer.

The Cake is a Lie:

Roughly translates to "your promised reward is merely a fictitious motivator". Popularized by the game "Portal" (found on Half-Life 2's "Orange Box" game release for PC, X-Box 360, and PS3). During the game, an electronic voice encourages you to solve intricate puzzles using cake as a motivating perk. When you have "broken out" of the game's initial testing phase (from threat of death), you find scrawls on walls of the innards of the testing center warning you that "the cake is a lie".

@clifbar: I don't know if it's really referencing the same thing tbh.

This level is impossible. Don't even try to solve it.

I'd be interested if it wasn't pink-on-red.

@clifbar: I agree. While this shirt is true to the reference, the Woot parody shirt was hilarious to people who got the Portal reference while still being funny to everyone else who'd never played Portal.

Half-Life 2: Episode 3 is a lie.

But there's no sense crying
over every mistake.
You just keep on trying
till you run out of cake.
And the science gets done.
And you make a neat gun
for the people who are
still alive.

@jayg71 One of the greatest endings of a 3 hour game, ever.

Sorry guys. I guess I finished first and well... saying I like cake is kind of an understatement.

Boo on Tanga for not carrying girly-cut shirts.

Is this liek the cheap chineese knock off of the shirtwoot , complete with poor grammar. I think the picture is even the same.

@camel2107: of course it's the same cake.
It's also not a knockoff with poor grammar - The Woot shirt is a play on the original line, from the videogame Portal. This one is the original line.
