So a gun that shoots forward kills things behind it? Did I get that right?

All that weaponry and the turtle was only able to slightly singe the rabbit? Waste of money, I'd say! You want more destruction in your heavy assault guns!

I want this shirt... a modern take on a classic story... like the new Star Trek movie that kicks butt and not the old ones that no one watched... ;D

Odds are, I probably already bought today's Shirt Woot... hahaha. I <3 Threadless :D If you need discounts for TL, just PM me! I AM NOT AFFILIATED WITH THREADLESS, I DO NOT WORK FOR THEM, I DO NOT REALLY CARE ABOUT THEM. I JUST LIKE GOOD LOOKING DESIGNER SHIRTS AND I LIKE PAYING GOOD PRICES !!!

In a way, I suppose, shirt.woot's version of the fable The Tortoise and the Hare can be seen as a metaphor for seki's relationship with other wooters.

I will not name who the rabbit represents in this metaphor. . . .

Needs jet packs. Otherwise Turtle might not have been able to catch up to Rabbit. This was just a lucky chance occurrence.

There were eight more deserving shirts in the fog, for one. And that's counting Ramy's.

I always think it's funny that people think that seki should change her style--she has like five shirts on the reckoning shirt, some, like Imposter, that have been there for a long, long time. I wouldn't change my winning style either.

Then again, I am the hated Shirt.Woot buyer who likes cute over "artsy" and I own many Seki and RamyB shirts.

So how long will woot take to check why these two are winning first place every week, even with the modified fog and hotness?

oh my god woot needs to disqualify ramy seikou b and for lac of creativity and those stupid animals. they were all good and cute in the beginning but i am sick of never seeing anything different in these derbies. there are SO many talented artists out there and these guys are nt leaving room for ANYONE else to win a derby.

come up with something creative and DIFFERENT for a change or stop entering the derbies. seriously.

Really, a turret on the back? You'd think a rocket pack would make more sense since they were RACING each other...

The rabbit represents everyone on this site other than her and Ramy. Somehow destroyed even though her weaponry is questionably designed and not even heading in the right direction.

I guess it's nice to see that for as generic and overdone of a concept as this is, at least for once she was mostly on theme. That alone is a huge shock.

Based on the apparent motion of the tortoise, I'm going to have to guess that this snap shot was taken approximately an hour after the bunny got shot in the back. Given that he's still smoking, I'd hate to have seen him then.

The shirt is different than the design the artist submitted for and people voted for. (the turtle's front right 'leg' is depicting motion)

While I think this a positive change for this shirt, I am not sure how fair it is to the voters to do this.

Other artists will resubmit their designs for the voting population, and this artist chose not to. In fact, she stated that she WOULD NOT CHANGE the design.

I don't really understand how it is that woot finds this acceptable.

I think it says somewhere that woot themselves reserve the right to edit entries for printing.

I love this website! ^^

I don't see a blank vacant stare on account of dots for eyes as a style. At least make the turtle angry or devilishly satisfied...

Maybe she submits her PRF a few days after submitting the design detail and shirt comp. She isn't the first, nor the last.

That turtle is so like, "It wasn't me! Must have been the other turtle with weapons on his shell...that are still smoking..."

After years of stereotypical oppression.. the Testudines have finally triumphed above the Lagomorphs. Who's saying ectotherms are amongst the lowest of cognitive animals now, eh eh?

I noticed that. That must be super frustrating for the artists on this site, yourself included. I shake my head. Some people are just above the rules, I guess...wish those people were decent artists.

So you're saying *woot* changed the turtle's stance (front and back legs both), added more grass, AND changed the color of the tortoise?

I am only willing to believe one of those things.

They are winning every week because people actually buy their shirts. It's not like their designs don't sell out.

That's not the issue, the issue is that there are enough differences between this and her derby entry that they are not the same.

I was counting multiple shirts. I believe a lot of the shirts that weren't even in the fog were more deserving.
