Bruce Schneier T-Shirt
I had nothing to do with it.
EDITED TO ADD (4/6): Or this.
EDITED TO ADD (4/8): Another t-shirt. And a sticker.

Black hat, eh? Oh Bruce, we raised you better than that...
I wonder if Chuck Norris is getting a good laugh over this.
Oh, and Bruce, when can we expect to see you on the informercial circuit?
Not one...., but if you call right now, we will sent you two for only the cost of shipping and handling.
@the informercial circuit?
Are you going to ask for a piece of the action?
@ Ben Schilling:
He would never be the saaaaaaaame...
Have you been on the Simpsons or Southpark? It can't be too far away.....
they're all a good read.
I like this one:
"Bruce Schneier is not balding, you just can't see the encrypted portions of his hair."
The facts generator is hilarious. I had no idea you were capable of mounting chosen-ciphertext attacks without choosing the ciphertext. Genius!
"Once Bruce Schneier was kidnapped and taken out of the country. His kidnappers got picked up and charged with a violation of US cryptography export laws."
I don't like the T-shirt, because his pony-tail isn't properly visible.
I mean, the t-shirt is nice and all but it pales compared to the hilarious Bruce Schneier Facts thing that page links to. "Bruce Schneier reads RFID cards with the knuckles of his clenched fist." -- Oh yeah!
Bruce, you had nothing to do with this? Please. We all know better. This is clearly the result of a meticulously planned and flawlessly executed strategy for world domination of security discourse. That it's an unintended consequence is almost beside the point.
Now all that's left to do is the franchising. Beyond Fear(TM)! I'm in! How much for a piece of the action?
They're bidding $1,200.00 eBay!
omfg - i can't decide if this is cool or just weird ;)
WWBSD sounds like the kind of Unix I could trust to be really secure...
On the WWBSD? page, watch the price as the page loads, or when you hit reload. It starts out as $7.35 and then jumps to $8.40 when the page is fully loaded.
I'm not sure those look like real t-shirts...or American flags. Someone call the Boston police!
Although there (appears) to be some server-side checking. Since it is not possible to checkout with the lower price, it jumps to $8.40 when the item is added to the cart.
I've simply GOT to have one of those WWBSD shirts.
Shouldn't it actually be, "What Would Bruce Schneier Not Do?"
No, WWBSD is correct. After all, as a nearly equal member of security pantheon (Marcus Ranum) said: "enumerating badness is dumb."
The "Knuth is my homeboy" t-shirt is pretty awesome too.
On a tangent, I wonder what a Dan Kaminsky t-shirt would say.
Since you posted this, I'm guessing you don't disapporve?
It might just be an inconsistent set of defaults in the site: the women's version of the shirt does cost $7.35.
Hmm, makes me wonder if there have been any parallels made with _Bruce Almighty_.... ;)
