This shirt is great. I'll take funny/cute/just plain awesome shirts over shirts that are "artsy" any day.

The printing of this shirt, over all the other Derby shirts eligible, shows me that the Editors' taste isn't much better than the everyday Woot voters'.

At first I was going to say - Clever, but not my cup of tea (which is also my preferred caffeinated morning beverage).

I also agree with another post on here, some distressing could have improved the design a bit, because otherwise it's just straight up blocks of color.

Vote!

I noticed on the editor's choice little logo, it says "derby fave". Do all the ECs say that, or are there sort of individualized themes of the ECs? Because this one *was* a derby fave from what I noticed... a lot of enthusiastic supporters... so just wondered.

Vote!

All in all it wouldn't be my personal pick for EC, but it's a solid shirt and should sell well. I approve of this EC.

Completely agree. Not my number 1 pick, but I quite like it nonetheless.


Also, I noticed some people remarking on the lack of texture or even some distressing. I definitely see your guys' argument here. However, isn't the GI Joe symbol supposed to be almost immaculate... and, well, somewhat plain looking? I wasn't even born when the GI Joe: Real American Hero show first came out so I'm not 100% sure here...

Consider this post an epilogue to my derby entry. This is the public service announcement, PSA, part of the G.I. Joe cartoon. This is the interpretation, the depiction, of G.I. Joe as I understood it growing up.

G.I. Joe always helped those in need. Avoiding physical harm and recognizing influence abuse appeared many times in the cartoon's PSA shorts. I asked myself, "What would Joe do?" I could not exactly aspire to save a kid who has caught himself on fire; I needed a more coffee-drinking-adult type of idea. What dangers are we, as adults, now facing? My conclusion is that any monetary awards or royalties that would have normally been payable to me will instead be donated to a local organization named OASIS. OASIS is an acronym for "Opposing Abuse with Services, Information and Shelter"; it is a private not-for-profit organization. G.I. Joe cannot appear to save people from domestic violence or sexual assault, but OASIS can be the victim's real American hero. I choose them because that is where I live, in north-western North Carolina. The sales of this t-shirt, I figure, will make a good small-scale impact.

Wear this as an adult, a coffee-drinking-adult, who remembers the message that came from G.I. Joe. The battles that we faced as a child no longer present themselves as great a threat; we should know not to get inside an abandoned self-locking freezer. We may purport to love our spouse regardless of the emotional and physical abuses; we endure the hardship because of tradition and consistency, a cold and empty comfort. Knowing the influences, knowing that you need help, knowing consequences of your actions, and knowing whose purpose your ignorance serves is indeed half the battle.

Hear me Woot Gods and please arrange this. If you need additional contact information please email me.

I would also like to thank the metric ton of supporters this shirt had when it was in the derbies. About 7/8 of that ton was from databit. So, here's to you! I'll imagine we are clinking coffee mugs together ... or some other clink-worthy drinking vessel since you don't drink coffee any longer.

Now you know.


**UPDATE** Nathan from Woot has confirmed that there should not be any issues for them to send the payments to directly to OASIS. Cool!

Sorry Danstick, I was not a fan of this one... perhaps because I didn't want any t-shirt that parodied an '80s cartoon show, though upon first look, I did laugh at it. I guess the joke wore on me too fast. That being said, congrats on the print

Ever heard of the term "Jingoist"? You might wish to look it up. Your duty as an American my left toenail. What do you mean - North American? South American? Canadian? Hey, how about the middle American countries. Yeah, buy this shirt for ALL of those nations because, well...

Given that the "better" coffee beans are supposedly grown in South America (Juan Valdez and all that advertising carp), are you going to try to argue that coffee drinking began in the United States and as a result was promulgated by those good old Government Issue Joes?

Hey, next you'll be arguing that coca leaf chewing was a real popular thing to be doing in the New England colonies and that they probably shouldn't have been worrying about tea in the first place.

It seems to me that the issue was taxation, not what was the actual material getting dumped in the harbor.

It may be true that more coffee is drunk in the US than anywhere else (although I wouldn't want to argue with the Turks and the French about this), but it certainly wasn't an "original" U.S. tradition.
