I have no idea what this shirt means. Would someone care to explain?

Oh nice. I can only assume that this design was specifically printed on a fire-proof shirt?

There is a large contingent on woot whose equation seems to be nerdy=awesome, with absolutely no exceptions.

It's an RPG joke. Fire can do some hella damage and you need to build up fire resistance to survive. Also, it helps to not get fired in today's economy.

I'm going to roll a d20 to see if I'm going to buy this shirt. Oh. Rolled a 1.

So my elf paladin doesn't buy this shirt but owes shirt.woot 10 dollars anyways.

Most of my gamer buddies work for the government, so now I can at least somewhat approach their levels of job security with this.

I'm sure Patrickspens is tough and all, but shouldn't that be 5d10+25 hit points?

I have a hard time believing this, and I'm pretty sure you joked your way to a quality post.

"Resist Fire +30": In gaming, meaning that you have a super strong resistance against damage from fire.

"Shirt of ...": In gaming, the shirt might give the wearer certain powers.

A play on words between being "fired" (laid off from work)... leads to the Shirt of Continued Employment... Resist Fire +30.

Might not make sense if, where you live, being "fired" is not a common term, but being made "redundant" is.

I think for the sake of simplicity, this works fine. The other way would be too cluttered, imho.

Even though I sensed it wasn't genuine, I decided to take the bait anyway, just to be sure.

This shirt would be super useful if your boss was also a dragon.

In addition to fire, any guy who wears this shirt will have a +50 resistance to female encounters.

In this economy, 30 fire resistance points for $10 is a no-brainer. You'd be crazy *not* to buy one!

This is rubbing dirt in the wounds of people that have been fired... They won't be able to afford it.

Examination of this object reveals it curses the wearer with "Inability to Get Laid"

If this were to be a loot drop, in a video gaming sense, what color of loot do you think it would be? Personally, it reminds me (in multiple ways) of old Molten Core runs. Thus gaining a purple (epic) color in my humble opinion.

That's not true, otherwise they would have listed it on the shirt like this bad boy.

Unless that female is also nerd or geek class in which case he'll gain a Charisma bonus of +8

Oh believe me, just because you can't see the stat sheet doesn't mean that the only women who'd tap that mana are generally dispatched via ogre-slaying knife.

It says it's Navy, but it certainly looks Black to me. Thoughts?

+1 shirt of owning....well, at least my boyfriend thought so, hahaa! Tis a tad too geeky for me, but I predict many tabletop gamers will be sporting this gem on Fri nights at the Lair. (Phoenix Down to those in Austin, high five!)

Congrats Patrick!

As much i love woot shirts, they seriously need to stop releasing shirts that can only be read from two feet away.

It looks navy to me.

More importantly, it says navy. So expect navy.

Easy peasy.
