Not many insults can cut as deeply as "quitter". Presidential candidates pretend like they're already ordering drapes for the Oval Office right up until the moment they drop out of the race. No-hope, go-nowhere rock bands roar about how they're in it for life, when what they mean is, they're in it until they get their girlfriends pregnant and have to get real jobs. Nobody wants the dreaded q-word hung around their necks. But maybe sometimes it makes sense to quit: if you know you're beaten; if you feel like you'll strangle your boss if you have to listen to one more order come out of his slimy loathsome mouth; or if the thing you're quitting is killing you, like smoking. This week on the Shirt.Woot Derby: quitters and the quitting quits who quit them.

Note: No celebrity likenesses.

Beat you to what? ;)

And yeah.. I wondered if they'd tie-in a theme to the drama going on.

I'm not going to even ask where the theme came from.......but I think Edgar should do well this week. Also looking forward to Kenney's Pucker. This could be a hard one!

Good luck and get those creative juices flowing!

Please NO TEXT ON THIS ONE. I suspect a silly nonsensical text shirt to surely place. Kind of stinks...but Woot has been offering a lot of art shirts lately....so I guess they have to please the masses too.

I hope my idea doesn't count as a celebrity. Not a real person, so we'll see...

Much as I want nothing more than a zero text derby every week, I think this theme would be very difficult to execute any other way.

You're right though, we will see an incredibly unfunny text slogan take first.
