Portal 2

Ahh, Portal.  One of the funnest moments is creating an infinite portal, or infiportal, to drop companion cubes, turrets, or co-op companions into.  This t-shirt sums up those fun moments and how my wife feels after guzzling a 32 oz. cup of Coke and 2 hours of Twilight.  This shirt is available at Splitreason.com
