This is the shirt that started the meme! We designed it in 2008, and when we put it online, the image took off and became a meme on 4chan. You can read about all that here.
The philosoraptor opens the doors of perception, periodically tests the fences of reality, and opens your mind using 80 razor sharp teeth and two 4 inch sickle claws. "That's not very scary, looks more like a 6-foot turkey," you say? Well, was it Kierkegaard or Dick Van Patten who said "if you label me, you negate me"? The point is... you are alive when the Philosoraptor engages you in Socratic dialogue. So you know... try to show a little respect.
