Makes explaining a Woot shirt an embarrassment for me. And for Woot.

The reason hinges on Woot artists who have the best, funniest, most popular designs go for black, I surmise.

The colored shirts are reserved for the K-8 set and their parents.

Please, help the homeless looking adults whose sense of humor runs to science, easy women, and mechanical things.

Put a little color in their lives! After all, its summer. Getting hot. Whew!

No one wants their dandruff to show! Thanks for dropping by to share your idea

In Hebrew, the "I/J" in Jehovah is actually a yud, which is a consonant. Other yuds at the start of Biblical names include Yoseph (Joseph), Yehoshuah (Joshua), and Yerushalayim (Jerusalem).

The reason it became "J" is that the "J" used to give a "y" sound. When the sound changed, the transliterations remained.

Yeah I know the AA option has been gone for a few rounds but this is honestly the first shirt I would've purchased since then - *and* on AA. I've been dying to pay the premium for an AA shirt! Sad to see it didn't last long.

Well it could be LoTR-ish too. I don't remember Indy that well. I haven't seen it so recently.

But in Latin, the Konami Code starts with an "I"...
