And sold out at juuuuuust over an hour. A 1250 print no less. 1250 forgettable shirts.

I must hand it to woot, though, for pulling out a Moby Dick reference on the description for this. That was worth staying up for. Actually, if someone had drawn an illustration from Moby Dick with Ahab and Queequag on deck talking with a cup of Starbucks, that would have been worth my $10 easily.

I placed an order about an hour ago for the shirt and didnt receive a confirmation email and it doesnt show up in my history/status screen. Does this mean it didnt go through?

I doubt it. This shirt is obviously a parody, and that's a protected form of speech

Don't like the shirt, and kinda disappointed the derby couldn't come up with something better.

The moment I saw this on the derby page, I wondered why it did not have that huge red REJECTED stamp on it for copyright stuff. Neat shirt, nonetheless. So, so true.

Apparently, you were not here for U.S.2145.

...and...

For those saying that Starbucks doesn't have a chance...

It doesn't matter if they don't have a chance. Even if they don't stand a chance, they have enough money and resources to tie Woot up in court for a long, long time.

I love this shirt, as with any shirt I love, by the time I get a chance to buy it (get up for work) it is sold out.
Again, I love this shirt, as with any shirt I love, there are so many negative post about the shirt that I feel that is goes to show not to the character of the shirt but to the character of the posters and find it unhealthy for me to read.
This shirt would have been perfect for my brother, who lives in a large town with starbucks.
As for being sued pssst they are not making millions of bucks on them and as they say any publicity is good publicity. Oh ya and, how many songs did you download for free of the internet?

Please don't delete this post, I am trying, honest!

Regardless, I don't like coffee, and like someone else said, I refuse to give them any mindshare. Depending on what else won this week, it may be a cheap weekend for me. There were only two in the fog I would actually buy/voted for.

Search around online, you'll find something similar that you can buy. Or come back tomorrow and learn how Shirt.Woot works and you can get it for $15.

I'm shocked that woot let this through based on the past performance of the rejectinator. I doubt they'll be sued as it falls under the category of 'parody', and on top of that, 1250 shirts is pretty under-the-radar.

I work for Starbucks and it's one of the best company's I've ever worked for. They truly put the "partners" first, the benefits are awesome, the discounts are worth their weight in gold, including a pound of coffee per week. The job offers flexibility and advancement. They are socially concious and are heavily involved in community outreach.

I don't know if corporate will latch on to this or not.

I missed the shirt. Bummer

I like starbucks and I don't think it's much more expensive than any other coffee place around. Then again I only drink black coffee, and that costs about the same anywhere.

I don't 'do' the fufu coffee crap.
