Ever wonder would it look like if Japanese sci-fi monsters were battling it out -- wait -- on a mens' short-sleeved button-down shirt? Wonder no longer. San Francisco clothier Betabrand has made the slim-fitting Kaiju Cage-Match shirt. It depicts several massive monsters, including "the internet's first three-headed beaver," duking it out.
Hailing from Parts Unknown, these bloodthirsty kaiju are settling ancient beefs once and for all in a wrestling match for the ages. Tokyo, beware!
You can get it now for $57.80 (the price will go up with its popularity over time).

I've been posting stuff to the Internet since the early 1990s, and in all that time, I've never felt the need to post a picture of a cat anywhere. Today, that changes. This is the cat pic I was born to post. And, conveniently enough, it's another one of those Tumblr finds that I can't source (it dead ends with a Piccsy account for a user called sharoninauburn). So I guess that makes this the weekly re-attributor post: if you think you can figure out who made this, get sleuthing and post your answers in the comments.
Update: We have a source! Our own Rob Beschizza ran this one to ground, tracing it to the Flickr account of Fun9us, who has moar.
