C'mon whales would know how to build a ship.



...and the sail as has been mentioned. The waves are the wrong direction for the majority of sails too.
The masts are not the right heights compared to one another. The crow's nest is on the wrong mast. There's no reason for that sail to be flying away, but perhaps there're some porpoise topmen ready to secure it.

Maybe I've read too much naval fiction for my own good. It's quite likely.

Anyone else noticed the steering whale's eye isn't colored-in white? Not a big deal obviously, the shirt is golden, but it wasn't like that in the derby

Not sure if I would walk around with a bunch of "seamen" on my shirt. People give funny looks for that kind of stuff you know.

I agree: best writeup ever. I used to daydream about quitting my job as a technical writer and working as a copywriter for Woot, but this writeup proves I'd be out of my league.

Reminds me of the new music video for the Modest Mouse song "King Rat" directed by Heath Ledger.

It features sperm whales fishing for humans in the ocean. Its quite the interesting video here's the link if you were curious.

Does get quite gory in a way, just a warning.

Those whales never do come when you expect them to.

You sit there on deck, intent on watching them breach and spray, and then you turn your head and SURPRIIIIIISE!

Whales are dicks like that.

"Are they really selling THIS SHIRT in kids' sizes?"

Strange question, since to all the world, anyone wearing this will look very childish indeed.

Bwah, haha. S P E R M get it?

I has such a spunky sense of humorz.

Yeah.
Yawn.

Thanks everybody. I'm glad you think it's a really fluid design that spews good humor. I'm really jacked that it printed! Soon the seamen will be covering bodies all over the world. Bwahahaha.

Geeze.

Of course whales make good seamen. The live in the ocean!

And furthermore, I see nothing dirty about a lad named Peter who happens to have lived in Nantucket, Or a Captain who's name happens to be Balzac, Or his first mate Chisholm (Which, for the record, I don't even get then pun in that one).



Chisholm sounds like "jism?" Or maybe it's perfectly innocuous. "Chisholm" could be the name of the writer's sister.

Love the shirt, but why is one of the whale's eye black, instead of white/light gray like it's supposed to be?

It makes him look demented, and I'd prefer priests not shouting at me for wearing the shirt (which you've done excellent at making sure they won't, heh.)

I think the shirt itself is cute, even with the obvious wind/wave/wheel problems. However, as a former US Navy sailor, I'm terribly offended by the name of the shirt, and the write-up. They're so wrong!

There should be a "Best of Woot!" page somewhere, and this should be the #1 rated for title, description, comments, and even the design is pretty nifty!

I am a sailing expert and I have the same concern, but that is actually the aft sail and the helms-whale is facing aft for some unknown reason. Also, the waves are cresting opposite to the wind. All very confusing.

That Captain Balzac name is pretty clever. Maybe it's because I have five brothers and a pervy mind that I caught onto that one? hehe

I don't like the changes. Write-up was excellent.

Off topic, I know, but why no HMs yet for the Halloween derby? I haven't seen them this late before.
