One thing the Gaming.SE has that other SE's don't seem to is an abundance of eye-catching, peculiar questions that, when taken out of context, are hilarious. These questions get a ton of views and get quickly linked and shared among communities (at least among the six members of CHAOS here at SE). Would anyone be interested in merchandise with some of the most interesting questions on them, with the Gaming.SE logo/url/etc. on it as well?

Some contenders for t-shirt/mug/etc immortality are:

If you think this is a fun idea, please respond and say so. Also include any other questions that I may have missed (I know I definitely did).

UPDATE: I've edited this post to collect all the question suggestions. It's nice to have them all in one place, and also it makes me chuckle every time I come to this post. More importantly, there has been some discussion over in The Bridge about having mousepads instead of (or in addition to) mugs and t-shirts. If this sounds like a solid idea, let me know. We're still a step or two away from getting this done, but let it be known that it is on my mind daily (along with all my X-Men thoughts).

    No love for our top question of all time? How can I tell if a corpse is safe to eat? – user56 Aug 4 '11 at 15:35
  • Yes of course! I seriously spent a little while trying to remember what that question was. Thanks! – Brett White Aug 4 '11 at 15:37

    I tend to not be crazy about t-shirts, but other textually deserving swag seems like a huge win. In pipe dream land, I'd love a "When Should I Start Drinking" clock... – LessPop_MoreFizz Aug 5 '11 at 4:24
  • I think that such T-Shirts should contain the [Tags] on the question in question. Otherwise, hell yes! – Raven Dreamer Aug 5 '11 at 22:35
  • This meme is what makes Gaming.SE so special. Putting our specialty in the eyes of the public is surely a good idea... Go for it! – Tamara Wijsman Aug 10 '11 at 14:26
  • Mousepad would be perfect. – LessPop_MoreFizz Aug 10 '11 at 21:26

  • I'm not terribly active here, so I didn't realize that this was already a thing, but I set up a Twitter account to collect these: twitter.com/#!/gamingqs I don't know if I'll add all these awesome ones listed here; I rather like the idea of adding them as they're asked and hit the front page. But it may be that I'm codifying something that should not be codified, or making it more likely for people to purposely ask ridiculous questions in hopes of making the list. What say y'all: Should I keep going, or just delete the account? – 75th Trombone Nov 25 '11 at 5:31
  • @BrettWhite what about this one? How do I know who I slept with: gaming.stackexchange.com/questions/58819/… – The Ugly Oct 28 '13 at 15:22
  • How can I kill myself? // Why should I take showers? The last one is especially funny seeing as how this kinda references a popular gaming stereotype. – scenia Mar 13 '14 at 9:14

    Hey, @badp. How about a design update with the name Arqade? A bit easier to fit in? – TRiG Jul 23 '15 at 19:52
  • arqade.com actually does redirect to gaming.stackexchange.com – Richard de Wit Jul 24 '15 at 10:27

Why did my dog just eat my cat?
My pet is a public menace, what did I do wrong?
Why make cheese if milk is already food?

There are a few others that might not always strike the same chord with everyone ... I think you can browse the Dwarf Fortress questions and see which ones I mean.

What are the consequences of accepting unknown substances from strange men?

I'm particularly fond of the unknown substances from strange men question...
