          Not really... it's actually a phrase originaly used somewhere-I-don't-remember-where to mock erotic text roleplays, but it, like all fun phrases, became a meme and spread everywhere, including Team Fortress 2, Magicka and a whole bunch of other places.
          From TF2 wiki:
          • The description is a reference to the phrase, "I put on my robe and wizard hat", originating from an IRC discussion between users bloodninja and BritneySpears14, which became a popular meme on the internet. [1]

          Also, Abacus... you're missing a wizard scroll item on your back!

              I have that! I thought it might detract from my silly reference joke though. Also, I don't know what it does.

                  Actually - Yes - Magicka. The Bathrobe is an obvious reference to Magicka's Bath Robe promotion.

                    Actually the set itself is a reference to Mickey as the Sorcerer's Apprentice in Fantasia circa 1940.
                    The line "I put on my robe and wizard hat" is a reference to the meme http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/robe-and-wizard-hat. Describing it as a bath robe could simply be because Mickey's ensemble resembles a bath robe but maybe the devs did intend it to be a reference to Magicka.

                    Three pop culture references for the price of one, perhaps the best deal on the forums this morrow.

                      We'll disagree to agree on that one, based on the flavour text.

                        Well visually it's evidently a reference to mickey, hence the pieces are mismatched colours (I did wonder why the whole set isn't all blue, or all red) - but perfectly match his appearance. The flavour text though is obviously a reference to the well known "Robe and wizard hat" meme

                        There's no reason both visuals and text can't be call outs to two different things independently.

                            There is a back item that I *think* is a part of this set called Magic Scroll, and the flavor text says "The secrets on this scroll are only for a wizard's eye!". I thought that when you put the set together it might actually do something, being that the Magic Scroll back item is a blue item. Any thoughts?

                              Done it. Nothing happened. Well, except for the lightning bolts that started coming out of my eyes and the powers of raw chaos that flowed from my fingertips, but that's all minor stuff really.
