Hey... she's got bills to pay okay?

Don't judge. Don't hate. Just buy the shirt. :-)

Using the Raven for a school project right now. Also made me feel better about waking up too late to buy the Lincoln one. Awesome shirt, had to buy

Then the both of you should be as disappointed as I am of the poor abridgment of this poem. While the design of the shirt is cool, leaving off the best parts of the piece is a crime.

People, if you're going to abridge something, make it a meaningful abridgment!

My wife's going to hate this one but buying it anyway. I really like the idea/theme.

I was wondering how an English major could stomach wearing it since the original poem is barely recognizable in the abridgement on the shirt. I like the other raven shirt better. More subtle, if you can consider the most recognizable word from the poem plastered across your chest as being subtle.

Despite not voting in this derby at all, I got one. I once left a friend a voicemail of me reading the entire poem on Halloween.

hear hear.

I'd wager most of the people who buy this have not only never read the raven in its entirety (or perhaps not even past "nevermore!"), but won't bother to read what little is preserved in the shirt even owning it. 'Course, I find the rhyme scheme a bit overbearing myself, so even with a better abridgment, I'd have preferred the simpler one.

I know she loves Poe so maybe I'll just order it for her instead unless I like it too much and beg her to share, *giggles*.



How do you get coupons?

Yet another lit nerd here. B.A. in English to prove it. And I lurv everything dark and Poe. Despite the abridgment, I HAD to get one. Many thanks Woot and designer.

Yeah the abridgment leaves a little to be desired, but it's still a cool shirt. In for 1, but still hoping to see mine tomorrow. And yes, subtlety has always been my strong point. Nevermore!

From the start, I was looking to see this shirt win, although either of the Raven shirts would have been ok.
What I am hoping doesn't happen (sorry) is another raven shirt tomorrow. I wouldn't buy a second shirt about the same poem....

Come on pi!

I'm confused, why not buy it now? Oh well, guess it does not matter since it is sold out. WTG!

Staying up was worth it. I would have been mad in the morning to wake up and find this gone.

Yeah, I had a hunch it would be this shirt and that it would go fast. I just did not realize it would go this fast, whew!
