Yayyyyy! Call me generic for the cutesy shirts all you'd like, but I'm thrilled this one won. I eyed it during the "exercise" derby and wanted it then. And now I get it. Thanks, woot! =3

At a place where silence is so often taken for collusion, it's about the only way to to even hope that we might get anywhere.

Hey don't jump on my back, like I said, /Devil's Advocate.

Seems more like it should have been a key chain or something. Oh well. Another illustration from a children's book printed on a shirt to invoke gaiety to all who view it couldn't do the world any more harm.

I know. You're smart. That alone proves you'd never soil your flesh with this tee.

I just think it's important to make sure people know that popularity doesn't make something immune to being awful. And when this hackjob sells out and people start the "haha, see, it sold out," there will now conveniently already be a post that says "lots of people buy things that ultimately suck in objective ways"

ratamadiddle wrote:First off, congratz Fablefire on this witty/nerdy shirt.

Only thing that I have an issue with is that this shirt won the double take derby, a derby where highly popular shirts in the community were brought back, with less than 1000 votes.

While this in itself is innocent, I find that due to the popularity of these shirts, that the vote count should be higher than in other derbies. However...

This shirt had over 100 votes less than the last derbies' 3rd place shirt, and 200 votes less than the 2nd place shirt; not including the 700 vote difference between last weeks, and this weeks top shirt.

Kind of an interesting lack in votes when a ramyb or seki shirt isn't in the running for a derby. Not saying anything specifically, but that is quite ironic.

Once again, congratz Fablefire and I hope the best for your shirt!

Happy Wooting!



interesting observation there.....

The first time I saw the threadless shirt, the first thing I thought was "Why is the fox humping the dog?"

I have been checking out the shirts daily for a few months now, but this is the one that finally made me cave.

Congrats on the winning design, and hooray for my first woot shirt!

uh huh.........let's have gothic, emo shirts every week instead...or swirly designs that swirl into animals or people!

you people are ridiculous. quit complaining already. So there are more cutesy tshirts available than the emo kind you all probably like to wear to look "cool" It's not like crazy, neat, etc designs never win. suck up the loss of not being able to buy the shirt you wanted. As difficult as it may to believe, you can't always get what you want. Shocking, I know.

Grats on the print.

I didn't realize there were only two types of shirts to buy - cute or emo. Well Gigli (2003), if that's the case, no wonder I'm not finding any graphic design shirts I want to buy consistently!

I guess I'll stick to my very non-emo and non-cute business casual attire from now on.

Looking at the four finalist shirts, it seems like the two grimdark shirts split the vote between the two, while there was only one cute shirt to vote on

From the font test phrase "The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog", which uses all the letters of the alphabet.

Nah, their... talents....are perfectly suited for this place, and this audience, just like today's carp.

......besides.....it's a lot harder to get printed at those other places where you can't just rig the voting system and come out being printed....

I thought it was "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog." That way you only insult one dog in the present tense, 'cuz you already had the "e" and the "d"...

All the winning entries this derby were moneymakers, but, IMO, uninspired. Like most things in most areas of life, then, they have come out on top. At least the world is consistent. I'd say derby democracy is at fault, but the past couple of non-derby shirts have also been sickeningly cute.

There are fewer and fewer shirts on woot these days worth my geek dollars, which I suppose is just as well, since it saves me money. Plus, when the rare gem shows up, I get proportionally excited.

I was going to suggest a geek/nerd-themed derby, but the cutesy results might just break my heart.
