I don't know Yogi, doesn't sound like such a good idea. Who cares? Possibly in for 1.

Actually he says "Smarter than the average bear"

Sung to the tune of "Camptown Ladies"
"There was a bear named Yogi Bear, Yogi, Yogi.
There was a bear named Yogi Bear, Yogi Yogi Bear.
Yogi Yogi Bear. Yogi Yogi Bear.
There was a bear named Yogi Bear, Yogi, Yogi Bear.

Yogi liked to show himself, see what, I've got.
Yogi liked to show himself, see what I've got, bare.
See what I've got, bare. See what I've got, bare.
Yogi like to show himself, see what I've got, bare."


As this charming ditty from my youth suggests, I'll be going bare, because I sure won't be bearing this shirt on my back anytime soon.

I must admit that the first thing I did upon reading "hunger pains" as the shirt name/label was to search the comments for the word "pang," to see how long it took someone to point this out. (You're the second to point it out, but the first to do so with conviction.)

I gave up on correcting internet mistakes such as these long ago; I'm focusing solely on it's/its and than/then for now. If those two can only be eradicated, I believe that next we'll see a vast reduction in the use of an apostophe to indicate that an "s" is coming up as the last character in a word, shortly followed by a snowball effect where people actually make an effort to learn and use language correctly when posting -- and eventually it even becomes kewler than l33t-speak.

[Note to those at whom these efforts are directed: See how that's the word "than" in the final clause of the last sentence above, and not the word "then"? You are to write the phrase "proper grammar will eventually become kewler than l33t-speak" 40 times on the chalkboard during recess; I want you to REMEMBER it.]

Not a huge fan of the shirt color but this is too awesome not to buy.

Three in one week is a new record for me (the first two harvest ones were awesome, and now this one).

I would have bought that shirt too, but it's sold out. Looks like it's only Yogi and no Smokey for me.

PUNS. Word Play. Not literal. Puns. Learn humor, people.

Maybe I'm giving the woot writers too much credit, but I figured that they were referencing to Yogi's hunger had finally convinced him it was time to bring the hurt to one Mr. Ranger Rick.

This gives the story of Yogi and the Park Ranger an almost legendary feel, like they're a part of our modern mythology or something.

How about some more like this? Yosemite Sam and Bugs? A realistic Marvin the Martian and his weird dodo? Glorious Elmer Fudd in Wagner-inspired valkyrie raiments?

Woot could steal all of my money with this. Looney Tunes was my childhood.

Really not digging the shirt's base color. Sand is definitely not my color...

Personally I like this one better. I might get it.



I know, the lady friend actually owns it. I guess that's why "threadless" was my initial thought... It's in the same vein as the other shirt.

I don't really see the humor in this. Just a bear about to kill a guy. Why is this funny? Besides, don't park rangers carry guns? Dude, I would busta cap in dat bar's a** with my Ruger Super Redhawk Alaskan.

Nothing wrong with ignoring every other response that mentioned Yogi.

I think their, there, they're and your you're are much more annoying. Also, when people use two instead of to or too. And yes, I have seen them spell out the number like that meaning the other word. I don't get why it's so hard to understand.

To quell these hunger pains he's got to stick it like duct tape. He should hit up Magnolia and mack on some cupcakes. 2, no 6, no 12... Baker's Dozen! He'll totally go crazy for those cupcakes, cousin.

I picked one up, I love the design and like the subtlety since obviously a lot of folks here don't even get it. The color isn't my favorite but I liked the design enough to still buy it.

I broke down and bought this. The deciding factor is when I realized my Dr. Clayton Forrester self didn't buy that Game of Life parody shirt successfully (it's not in my order history and my card was never charged--I must've screwed it up somehow). So I figured I owed myself a cool shirt. This fits the bill

The lose/loose confusion makes me want to stick a fork in my eye.

He didn't tell you not to comment, so he wasn't trying to stifle you or tell you that you're not entitled to your view. He just gave his opinion about your opinion which-- according to your logic--is an opinion he's entitled to
