Re: Viral Kawaii



I would buy this for my 3 year old son but I just can't bring myself to have him wearing a shirt that says herpes on it.

But then again when he says "brain freeze" it sounds like "herpes" so when we eat ice cream he always yells "I've got herpes!"

Ah, but the horizontal stripes give it directionality, like a waterfall.

Re: Pithed Lemon



You do realize that pithing is a slaughtering technique in which the brain of the animal is scrambled with a tool inserted through the hole in the skull created by captive bolt stunning. When just looking at the deff of the lemon pith the shirt is funny, but when you looked at the definition of pithed its kinda creepy.

It's not an issue of whether you like or support this design, just that all designs be treated equally. I'm disappointed that Woot gave in to popular forum pressure and opted for appeasement.



Here's why I think this shirt was rejected, and why it was the right call. Based on past rejections it easily qualifies for the "similar shirts exist" rule, the similar shirts being at other sites and possibly at this one. The issue isn't that similar characters exist, it's the entire design that is too similar. Visually this is a rabbit standing next to bones with some text, which covers most of those Monty Python shirts. The concept is that the rabbit is carnivorous, which is in those other shirts as well. So what is in this design that isn't in the others, conceptually or visually? The words on the slogan are different. Given woot's feelings on slogans, I don't think that's enough. If it were then the following week you could feasibly resubmit another carnivorous rabbit next to bones and have it say "tastes like chicken" and the following week something else. I don't think adding or altering a slogan is enough on it's own to distinguish a design from others. Fable proved that you could use virtually the same character in a slightly modified situation and get it past rejection. I think if this had just that one additional element or concept (that wasn't a different slogan) it wouldn't have been rejected. I could see this getting resubbed with an alteration that adds to the concept and makes it unique in some way. I completely get what you're saying about this artist being under extra scrutiny, but on this particular shirt I think woot made the right call. Fortunately for fans of Ramy he has a great entry still fogged right now.

Yup, I knew that. Having a cow's head instead of a lemon: THAT would have been creepy.

I really hope this gets an HM, and if it doesn't stand a chance in the 2nd Chance Derby wins an EC from woot. This is super cool and hilarious, I want one!

Ramby may be in the fog often, but he doesn't win as often as people believe.


So let me get this straight. You readily admit Ramy's shirts get printed more often than 75% of the other top contenders on this website that you can name, EVEN though he's submitting much less often lately, and you're complaining... why?

Re: this is not the onion you are looking for


Hahah, from the thumbnail, I thought it was supposed to be an adorable jack-o-lantern that missed the mark dreadfully. Now knowing the context (I missed all the invented drama), I'm even more inclined to say 'SFW?' It's cute, but I also think the shirts-that-shall-not-be-mentioned are cute, too.

Too bad this was rejected (tho totally understandable). Its an awesome tribute. I have the original (one of my favs), and I would have loved to have this as a companion to it. Oh well.

Because he is submitting less often. He is submitting less often due to people hating on him and Woot's added rules that appear to be directed strait at him. He wins with bunnies, we get the no bunnies rule, he wins with a video game, we get no video games rule. The fact is that Woot gives off the appearance of hating their best seller, and that is sad, and just plain piss poor business sense.

I also have a tokidoki item with the pepper and it's not exactly the same. This is a good representation of the only tokidoki pepper I've ever seen. Note the horns, face, and orientation. I suspect there's only so much you can do with a flamin' hot chili pepper as a concept...

All in all, I think this is the best of the three versions.

No, no, no, it's not marching at breakneck speed. It's moved a few inches, once per session (or every few sessions) with your consent and direction, coupled with real therapy. Do a little research on phobia desensitization therapy to learn more. I have a close friend who went through it and it took about 17 months, I think. Her sister did the same thing in about 6 weeks. Everyone's different and there's no schedule to follow.

You're being friendly and not just using my entry to pimp your website while at the same time accusing me of copying you... right? Heh heh, 'cause that would just be silly... right? I mean, yeah, they are both cute versions of angler fish, but mine is stylistically a lot different than yours.



It still is a very close similarity. Personally it doesn't matter in the end. Your angler design isn't going to win in this regard. Try using some line variation and cleaning up your style. Then you'll actually have a chance.

And then the best entry on this site in 6 months, the shirt that would have sold out by 8am tomorrow morning, gets rejected for one of the loosest interpretations of "similar shirts exist" that I have seen in a year.

No, woot is definitely not out to get him.

Ramyb, when you make your own site let us know and we can ditch this used to be good site.

On the off chance you were really asking - and not merely being facetious - here is an explanation of the particle emotions:

+ protons are positive, so they are smiling
0 neutrons are neutral, so they are neither smiling nor frowning
- electrons are negative, so they are frowning/crying
