Frankly, I like the shirt. However, I can see some people being offended, and would not think less of them one bit. For example, the person who comes to mind is one of my best friends, who lost his 4 year old daughter to leukemia a few years ago. He is a tireless supporter of cancer walks, etc. Shall I tell him he is being overly sensitive, or will you?

However, the different color at the bottom of the circle drives me crazy and I think I would notice it every time I got the shirt out to put on. I know that's stupid, but those things really irritate me.



Oh man, why did you point that out?... Damn.

If he actually finds the shirt offensive, yeah, you can tell him that for me. But you haven't indicated that he does, or even that you think he would. You really think he would? Honestly? Being a supporter of the walks doesn't mean finding this shirt offensive.

I never said being a supporter of walks means finding the shirt offensive. I was simply replying to the blanket statement that "people who find the shirt offensive have no sense of humor," and providing a personal example.

I can understand when all these people give examples of cancer survivors, etc. who would find the shirt funny. It's easier to laugh when you are still alive.

I just pray that I never have to test my "humor limit" the way my friend would if faced with this shirt.

That doesn't mean I didn't wake the dog with my laughing when I first saw this shirt, because I did. I think she's still holding that against me.

But you didn't provide us with a personal example. You presented us with a hypothetical. As far as anyone here knows, he could just as likely be rolling on the ground laughing his a** off as he is to be testing his "humor limit". You might as well have suggested he might kill your dog upon seeing you wear such a shirt. What do we know of his sense of humor?

And I don't recall anyone saying "people who find the shirt offensive have no sense of humor." Maybe I missed it. I did note someone saying that such a person would be overly sensitive, though. Of course, losing ones child could very well make one particularly sensitive, so it's not an entirely untrue statement. You know him better than we do. It's your call.

I don't think they would appreciate it if they saw me wear it, and me personally, I don't want to offend legend.

Thanks for explaining my post to me. Yes, I provided a hypothetical reply to the hypothetical statement "[T]he people who would find it offensive are oversensitive." That said, the person I mentioned, if offended (hypothetically), wouldn't be "oversensitive," but rather displaying perfectly reasonable sensitivity, given what he has gone through.

Humor is better than sorrow! Buy the shirt and make someone laugh!!

So, it's been two weeks. Plenty of time for this shirt to come in the mail and for people to wear it. It's time for the real world question:

Has anyone out there actually received any flak for wearing this shirt?

The FedEx Tracking show it was delivered on March 19th. Please check your mailbox, leasing office, or neighbor for the package. Please email service@woot.com if you have any questions.

Has anybody had any issues with this shirt being delivered?

My tracking says "Shipment information sent to FedEx Please check back later for shipment status" and the anticipated ship date was March 12th. Its been 12 days since then!

Any ideas?

If you check your FedEx Tracking again, the estimated delivery date for your shirt is March 27th. Not sure what happened, but it seems like its still on its way to you. Hopefully you will get it soon, sorry for the inconvenience.

I saw someone last weekend at Silver Dollar City in Branson, MO wearing this shirt!! It was so crowded and everyone was so busy I didn't get a chance to say "Great Shirt!!" and show that my family was also bedecked in Shirt.Woot attire!!

Purchases: Too many to track anymore but only 3 Birthday of Celebrations since 2006.

Only the good die young.... But most people are morally ambiguous which explains our random dying patterns....

My tracking info says the shirt went from Dallas (3/26) ot Atlanta and is now in Ohio (4/1). We live in New Mexico, so We'm at a loss as ot why it has been floating around over in the East (Atlanta? Really?) and Midwest, when Lance Armstrong could have gotten it here from Dallas in two days by bicycle. Maybe they're using one of those airlines that will get me home cheaply by flying me from Orlando ot NYC, then across Canada ot Seattle, then over ot Chicago, back across ot LA, and finally ot New Mexico. Estimated delivery went from 4/3 ot 4/9 overnight. Oh well, it'll be worth the wait, and it got cold here again anyway.

**Why do my "We"s change ot "We"s and all my "ot"s change ot "ot"s <--- even here?

Boots, you have made my two all time favorite woot shirts...now I just need to decide which one I'm wearing to my show tomorrow...

I think this one might be the winner. It's just...so...offensive.

I love it. Make more please.

thank you.

I'm black.
I'm also a cancer survivor, as is my father.
Oh, and I have a 5 year old daughter.

The only reason I may not buy the shirt is because of the pink section of the circle. I don't particularly care for it and it makes the inner Monk in me weep.

I never read the slogan as being racist or anti-children. Yes, it could have been worded better, but I'm not offended by it at all. The absurdity of it adds to the humor, IMHO.
*shrug*
To each their very own, I suppose.



Navy veteran and cancer survivor here as well. I find this shirt hilarious too, and I think some people should lighten up.

If I hadn't survived, I'd want my family and friends to still laugh and have a sense of humor, not get touchy because of something that's a fact of life. Live life to the fullest, people. Remember the ones you've lost, try your best to make other peoples' lives better, and be as happy as you can be.

This is still one of my favorite shirts. Great work Boots, as usual. It gets compliments nearly every time it's worn, most recently from comedian Ari Shaffir.

ps, I'm still partial to Negative Bob. That shirt makes me smile every time I put it on.

I love this shirt, I recently bought it, and wore it as soon as it arrived. Funny thing, last night at the restaurant I serve at, I walk by a guy wearing this same shirt in the bar! I told him that I was just wearing that shirt the night before, he said, 'did you get it from woot!?' I of course replied, 'where else?' It was great to see a fellow random woot-er supporting it. I love the shirt, and I love shirt.woot!

Don't let NightGhost convince you that you need an intervention, involving chocolate syrup. IT'S A TRAP!!!!

Hey thanks everyone. I'm glad you're all still enjoying the shirt. It's definitely one of my favorites and I'm glad the random humor is appreciated.

Oh, and the "Victorious" thing was pretty cool. I missed the Stapler Guy though. Boo!

Thanks again for buying and enjoying and commenting. Much appreciated.

The first time I ever heard of Woot was the first time I saw this shirt. At a summer camp for kids with cancer.
I think it's about the funniest thing I've ever seen, it made me join the site and buy the shirt.
