Re: Gas is up and my paycheck is gone.



That's pretty awesome. I hope it doesn't get rejected because it contains text. Perhaps if you had the fuel icon and an icon for a wallet instead.

Can't afford to fill up the tank anymore. Oil companies profits are at record levels, yet the price at the pump keeps going up. Greed at its finest.

Well, some T-shirts are more equal than others.



The other comment I would like to make: it's cute, but unlike the Waterhorse knock off, it's so extremely well executed!!!

redghia69 wrote:One happy face ring to rule them all
This unlikely band of (mostly) furry woodland creatures have come together to rid the Middle-Arbor of the legendary plastic happy face ring, injection molded by Sourpuss in the land of Taiwandor. Seventy thousand or so rings were cast, but it was Sourpuss’s greed for power that lead him to cast the one ring -- one ring to rule them all. The ring bearer, a lowly chimpmunk, has been charged with destroying the ring in the molten polymers whence it came.

Ok, a parody -- beyond greed for money is the desire (greed) for power, even absolute power, as is the main theme of LotR, and it was a movie poster of the same which inspired this design.


Yeah?



YEAH!

AAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH........ whatever.

I will probably resubmitt it. Go me for not reading the fine print.

Maybe those open pit mining penguins have medical benefits, life insurance benefits, 401k and long term disability benefits. As well as collective bargaining.

He just might be a rich, entrepreneurial penguin instead of a greedy robber-baron penguin.

I mean, this is the 00's. And those diamonds might be moissanite. You never know. Just because el jefe doesn't dress like Bill Gates or other latter day fortune 100 guys, doesn't mean he's a greedy guy. He just has sartorial exuberance.

I don't like the colors, don't like the theme, and don't believe it's something I'd wear without feeling really out of place. It's a perfect shirt for children, but not for any self-respecting adult IMO.



Most self-respecting adults don't wear tee shirts. Don't be angry, just hold out for that occasional winning shirt you do like, no matter how sparse they are. You don't want to spend $10 on a tee shirt every day anyway.

Best design I've seen in a long time. Very creative take on the theme. I really hope this makes it into the fog.

oh, yeah... I never said rodents only... just the several designs among many others. Bummer it got rejected.

Hmm, just went in for 3 Randoms, when I haven't bought any shirts lately (although still checking frequently) so what are the chances of liking them!?! Oh well, couldn't pass up the mystery!
...a number of shirts on teetrade.com

Re: There can be only one



it's becoming overtly obvious that Joel (or whoever does the rejections) doesn't read the "justify the existence of your shirt" part of submissions. It explained how it had to with greed, as was explained by several posters above...

I'm beginning to wonder why I keep trying this thing... the rejections get really discouraging.

I think it's enough to avoid rejection and it clearly demonstrates greed. I mean, c'mon for seriously, this shirt is awesome.

I think that you should be happy that you can now enter this in a later derby where it will be more appropriate (and have better submission time) without making changes.

Not if it's been rejected as off-topic before. As long as it meets the submission guidelines, no problem.

The shirt mjl is referring to was sold on March 29th. You're new, but not *that* new. Funny that new is usually what people say. Inspiration doesn't necessarily mean copied either so I don't think you're being accused of anything. And even if you are I wouldn't worry about it.

Not bad at all. Once you get rid of that pesky jpeg compression on the red colors, this would be a great holiday shirt. I'm kind of sad you decided to forgo a controversial design this derby. GMV, and here's hoping you continue to put that wit to good use in these derbies.

Yeah, bummer. I thought a quest against greed could work, but figured rejection was a possibility. An entry this late was more about the process anyhow. Next entry should be better for it. I just wish I knew when it was rejected and how well it was doing at the time....

Yup, gotcha. Do I always say what people usually say? I hope not, but it's certainly a possibility. First time submitting here today, I guess that's pretty new. Not worried about a thing, except my taxes.

Re: World Hunger



I like your idea, and I totally agree on it. However, I personally think that egocentric/ethnocentric would be a better word than greed to describe it. I wonder how many people are gonna bash my comment here....
