I suspect it was pretty hard for him to cycle in the rest of the tuxedo, so he took it back off.

Oh, yes, because it's impossible that a velociraptor could make an honest living that would allow him to purchase a tux collar and bicycle legally. It's assumptions like that that keep us in the Mesozoic era.

I'm sorry, but the cliche mustache is an absolute giveaway. And look at the manically gleeful expression. Don't be so naive.

I love this website! ^^

There goes my New Year's resolution. Thanks a lot, you Victorian velociraptor, you. I see now why they say you are villainous! You've had me revoke my vows of vanity purchases!

AAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH........ whatever.

No offense to any of the artists' submissions, but the designs these days are WAY TOO REDUNDANT. All I see are animals centered on the shirt or goofy statements scattered in a square/rectangle design that is centered on the shirt. What happened to truly creative designs that take up different areas of a shirt (offset to the left or right, down the left or right arm's length, up high, down low)? I'm just saying because I stopped buying Woot shirts about 3 weeks ago after accumulating about 12 of them then realizing that I was getting bored with the design schemes. Just a thought.

Actually, I'm sort of bothered by the recent trend (going back a couple years) of shirts that are completely covered by a design, or have it down at the waist or up by one shoulder.

Maybe I'm old-fashioned... but then again, so is a dinosaur on a velocipede.

I agree with that...you're right if you are looking for an old fashioned simple designed t-shirt, which is what Woot is essentially. There are a handful of designs dating back a year or two that I've seen that have the design up the side of the shirt that I was very impressed with...abstract, "dreamy" designs. That's my style I guess, but I do certainly respect tradition.

This breaks a string of some truly uninspired designs taking first place in derbies. Even factoring some of the better recent derby winners, I'll go so far as to say that this is my favorite first place winner since "Rain Dance". Congrats on a well-deserved victory!

Also, as I said in the shirt's thread, this would make for an amusing pairing with "Walrus and the High-Wheeler" on back-to-back days.

I must disagree. As much as the cliché mustache typically means he is the villain, there is no way he can possibly twist the ends in that oh-so-maniacal way when he laughs. ;)


However, it is, indeed, still epic!

I'm trying to keep silly T-shirt purchases to a minimum since I have so many already, but this shirt definitely gets my approval, if only for the "double-yoo-tee-eff" value.

Hate to be a spoilsport, but I need to point out that most paleontological research now points to the probability that Velociraptors were actually more likely to have ridden tricycles.

I agree. It is a special treat when a design works with the shape of a tshirt. Sometimes though, like in this case, I just couldn't figure how I could do that. Some people are far better visualizing in that way than I am.

I'm not happy with it because one pedal crank is so muck longer than the other one.
Even a dinosaur would have a really difficult time riding that way.

Happy to not see the nine-panel bunnies or butterfly this morning. Here's hoping for foxes tomorrow!

Oh, and I'm buying one, of course. This is similar to what I was going to submit, but much more well-executed. Congrats on the print!

From the description:

I do declare that typo to be most distracting!

Perhaps he is not a villian but merely a 'cad'. Note: As a cyclist I must have one of these gems! Ordering now.
