Absolutely not! This is definitely not my type of shirt on woot! (and probably not many others' either), and honestly I don't really think anything else could save this design from being criticized...

Not even unicorns or fuzzy mammals or swirly designs.

If you haven't watched Arnold in "Pumping Iron", you haven't seen him at his finest. GO GET IT!

IMHO, this T ain't worth the $$$. I'd rather buy a DVD with some cash from my CD, head down to NYC and meet my BFF who's in the FBI. He's been working with a CSI to track down the body of someone in the IRS, you may have seen it on the TV, maybe NBC or CBS? IIRC, ABC had a special on the SVU in DFW, where they had a similar case. Even the guy on PBS was like watch the HVS (W T H), which made me ROFLMAO so hard I knocked out my IV. Yeah, I'm in the ICU at OSU hospital because I tore my ACL. I asked the MD to check me for H1N1 and he said "I'm just a janitor," so I said AFAIK, you shouldn't be carrying around that scalpel, you crazy POS." He was like "Thx, but MYOB" and peaced out. Our Movie Genre (O M G), there's this guy in the bed next to me, keeps talking about the AARP and his 401k, then he goes on about his PC not accepting an SDHC card. I was like TTYL dude, but then he'd BRB with some crazy story about his days in WWII. I need to get out of here ASAP, PDQ, or he needs to end up in BFE. Either way, as long as I can get some R&R before I have to take my SAT. U C, I want to be a CPA, but my GPA was too low and I got no AP credit, so now I'm sort of SOL. This may sound like an SOS, but W/E, just know that your future is TBA, so learn from my mistakes. IOW, stay away from the PCP and the X, and you should be A-OK. But YMMV.

Woot from terrific Wisconsin (F T W)!!

Samurai Jack is much smoother and has a bit of a flow to it. This seems rather stiff and rigid, in contrast.

Personally I think it's pretty clever. It would have been funnier if it just said "BRB" rather than "I'll BRB", though. IMHO.

No... at one point I would have said bulging and muscular... but flabby doesn't equal swirly.

With an extra syllable, this can't be used in an Ahnold accent and still sound good. Remove the "I'll" and it's perfect.

To be fair to the artist, that is probably more accurate than one thinks about when they think of the human mouth. Take a look at this cross section of the human face*


*may make some squeamish.

I would have linked Harvey Dent first, but I wanted an accurate scale diagram/cross section to prove my point.

Before you push the stupidly oversize button on this shirt, ask yourself these two questions…


Who would win in a melee grudge match to the death?

Schwarzenegger as Conan the Barbarian
or
Schwarzenegger as Mr. Freeze
or
Schwarzenegger as the Kindergarten Cop


Whatever happened to that baby from Junior?

Either Arnold has a very large head or a very small shotgun. Proof of steroid use?

At least it's a pop culture reference I actually get. Congrats on the print. Not for me, though.

ooooh I'd buy this in a hot minute if it just said "BRB"

i think "I'll BRB" is just awkward, and i think the reference is obvious either way

I just felt you should know not everyone missed your reference ;-)

Some artists are born. Some artists are made.

And some artists are neither. Sorry, ths shirt just doesn't cut it.

The same joke would work with a drawing of Douglas MacArthur.

Though in both cases I think it would work better if it just said "BRB".

I like the idea and the style in general, but that shotgun and tiny hand really throws the whole thing off.

I almost did that myself and now wish I had. I liked it a lot, but wasn't sure if I liked it enough. I'd be happy, I think, if I could find 1 good shirt a week to buy. This week nothing in the fog appeals to me. There are about 5 with fewer votes, though, that I'd buy without hesitation. I'm still waiting for my last purchase, Steamworks Operatica.

Fairly cool design. It's at least as funny as the Delorian crashing into the Tardis. I'd prolly buy one if I hadn't already wooted this week.
