Aren't you supposed to stand still when a T-Rex is chasing you?

    My last 5 woots:
  • Robert Craig Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon x2
  • Woot Cellars Boss Monster Zinfandel Six - Pack
  • Armida Winery Poizin Trio
  • Olivestri Siloro olio nuovo
  • Wellington Vineyard Designate Cabernet Trio

Yeah, well, people vote on garbage shirts all the time. That doesn't mean they're going to buy them. Half the audience probably votes for bad shirts just to sabotage it. It's like voting for Sanjaya.

Ugh, being on the fence inhales sharply and creates suction. I would LOVE to buy this shirt to go running in (I run usually about 40 miles/week), but I've already spent WAAAAAAAAY too much money the past few days at woot. Ugh. Decisions, decisions...

You think fat people are gonna walk around advertising that they don't work out?



Pipe down, fatty :P

Ya, only Sanjaya didn't win. And this design did. And I bet it sells out NLT 2 PM.

Right... but that's because it's woot. They let what people vote for win. It was proven that American Idol is completely fake and he was getting the most amount of votes when they decided to kick him off the show.

And yet he didn't win. Why? Because the people actually voting for the real thing outweighed the people voting to sabotage it.

Really don't like the shirt and have nothing meaningful to say? Don't say it then.

Already happened over a year ago. And it was bad too.

Much like the robot wrestlers, congrats on being the best thing in the fog and placing, but not too many congrats for not being a very good shirt.

I LOVE this shirt. It made me ahuhu. I'm thinking of buying it as a gym shirt. I only wear black shirts to the gym... I'm confused on the person who indicated that white would be preferable. I hate sweating in white shirts!

It's also worth noting that Sanjaya was bad but entertaining. This is the major difference: people at woot vote for horrible, boring koi that isn't entertaining, because they like boring and horrible. Akin to Blake Lewis or Jordin Sparks, if you'd like to take the Idol analogy to the next level. And just like the trite and weak stuff that wins at woot, those two yawns were the top 2 the year Sanjaya was around.

Half of woot spends every day at the tech side saying nothing but "THIS THING IS SO nylon I WILL POST A LOLCAT".

I'll relinquish my position as resident shirt.woot curmudgeon when they relinquish their positions as dolts.

I, for one, absolutely love this shirt. I'm getting one. And wearing it. Maybe it'll even motivate me to run somewhere. We'll see!

Not too exciting... Not too fond of black and white, and the joke just seems made up without much thought, and T-Rex and excersice just have nothing to do with one another. Its like me putting together a shirt with a football player, playing basketball on ice, and calling it a sports shirt.

Or selling hotdogs only at a hamburger stand.

Maybe a guy jumping out of a plane with a faulty parachute, that he is unaware of, and calling it "Suicide".

If I don't see you no more in this world, I betcha on the next one you'll know me! Don't be late!

And with your 43 in just 4 years, I'm kind of wondering the same about you, because if you were around a lot, you'd know and understand you can critique, or even hate the shirts here and still be a part of the community, because thats how it works here, thats the beauty.

If I don't see you no more in this world, I betcha on the next one you'll know me! Don't be late!

You apparently don't know very many fat people. I can't speak for all fat people, but I would love to wear this while feebly attempting get in shape. As for the simplicity, thats the beauty of it. I'm just happy that something got first that didn't have some cutesy anime-esque fuzzy animal on it.

I have seen many a fat kid wearing shirts that say "I beat anorexia" or was it "I beat bulimia" either way they were advertising that they don't work out. Good stuff

ahuhu, in for 1

All you guys talking about working out in this shirt... to me it says the opposite message.

For all lazy asses (myself included) it says: running around like a hamster on a wheel doesn't carry the same motivation as being chased by a t-rex. When they resurrect t-rex and it starts rampaging through the city, I'll consider a good run now and again. Until then, eh…..

I like the black. I like the stick figure running for its life and the fact that the caption is "Exercise". But I didn't laugh. And I'm drunk. Seems like this missed the mark somehow but just now sure how right now. So I'm going to have to wait til I'm sober in the morning to see how I feel about it then.

Oh jeez. Can we find another American idol contestant to fixate on? The season ended a couple of years ago. If you like Sanjaya, go get his CD. If you don't, trash him on an American Idol forum.

edit: Forgot to mention that I like the shirt. However, my cat's medical bills pretty much prohibit me from buying non-essential items--like this shirt. Sorry.
