what about on good old fashioned white or black? OR even grey. I like this design a lot but wouldn't wear the shirt color!

Re: Feeding



Take out the other nipple and resub. Maybe that's the offensive part. Give it a shot and see what they say. I so want this shirt.

Re: Mom's Greatest Hits



Hey, thanks for the kind words, everybody. I am pleased that this has been received so well, and particularly because there's no evidence of "pucker" anywhere, this one seems to have at least somemerit on its own. The shirt comp does make the text look small, and I thought on a real-life shirt the letters would be big enough to read when you were talking to someone, and the formation be dramatic enough to get your attention.

After I submitted it, I totally remembered that the bottom words would have been punctuated pretty well with a little kiss there, but now I am afraid to remove it and throw away all the votes, and also I am afraid to do a resubmit that might lessen the overall impression of this entry.

And also, this is a text shirt. Woot pretty much prints pictures on shirts.

Have a great day, folks!

The dish ran away with the spoon according to the Mother Goose rhyme - what happened later? Dish became a mother - immortalized here in Punnett Square style on this cranberry woot! tee by American Apparel.

eyeslikesugar wrote:Yeah.. I actually tried to make a new shirt after my (very fair) resubmission rejection. I thought creating another Mother Nature shirt would make Woot happy; you know, taking the original rejection and turning something good around with it..like Cho's "Why can't I fly friend?" Lemons..lemonade. I guess Woot doesn't see it that way. Also, Seattlejo pointed out that the Mother Goose shirt is clearly on-topic.. so why isn't this? That kind of inconsistency kills me. I guess we'll never know. No point getting upset about it, though. Thanks for your comments. =)



I think, if I can try and imagine what their reasons for rejection were, that the design doesn't seem to clearly say "Hey, this is Mother Nature on a shirt" the way the lady on the goose is clearly Mother Goose. It's really nitpicky of them, though. I guess if you added a planet somewhere it would clearly be "Mother Earth" or if you had, maybe, her doing some mothering actions (feeding a deer with a bottle) then it might pass the rejectionator.

I personally think it was fine the way it was, but I guess I'm not as picky as Woot.

sundbe11 wrote:wow... sorry if you don't think it's original, but I thought it was fairly clever. It's supposed to be similar to the TV show logo, that's the whole point. It's a parody of the show. I used the well known logo, but changed it up a bit, so that people would get the reference. I'm not saying it won't get rejected again, but at least people who like mine can vote for it. I have just as much right as anyone else to put a shirt design on the site. If you don't like it, fine; I respect your opinion, but you don't have to attack me like that.



Great reply, sundbe11. Your design is very clever. It is a creative, but different, reference to the show. I love it! Keep up the imaginative work!

I think this one's really well done. Clever, visually appealing, and it practically begs for a wacky Woot writeup. I've got no idea why it's not getting more votes.

Move closer to the screen - it's a genetics joke.

The three smaller dishes and the spoon are their offspring, making the larger dish a mommy.

I know it won't win, but I thought I'd share the hand signals with you guys. It's a way to rebel against Mom when she makes you clean the bathroom WITHOUT losing privileges. Make sure her back is turned and the eyes in the back of her head are closed...

Good comment there. However, this could be written with or without the comma. Google search the phrase and you will find both ways used interchangeably. Typically, no comma is used with an exclamation mark, ie "Thanks Mom!" But this version "Thanks, Mom" is just a shortened version of "Thanks to you, Mom." Without the comma you would have "Thanks to you Mom", a run-on.

Yeah, I think Woot counts anything that indicates nipples as obscene. It might be the nipple shadow that did it, or the baby attached to the other nipple. Woot's just not into nipple "decorations". Heck... they even rejected a hand waving back and forth in the nipple area (back in the motion derby).

I'm assuming nursing itself is not considered obscene by Woot because it looks like at least one other entry here has a woman nursing a baby... It's very subtle, though, and not directly obvious. So they're not trying to say breastfeeding is bad, they just don't want obvious "playing with the girls" on the shirts they sell.

That's how it seems to me, anyway.

Looks like this one fell out of the fog at some point. At least that's what I see from SDS. Guess it happened during the last hour. Hope it can hang in there! Thanks for all the votes thus far. They are greatly appreciated!

Obviously you don't know Threadless. That shirt design was just that, A Design... It never made print. The concept did not start there either I can assure you.

cool idea, artulo! Nice use of a red shirt, too.

It's hard to get red shirts to look right in the comp, but yours looks fabulous. simple and fun.
