My thoughts, too. You beat me to it and said it well.

Sadly, I'm clueless about most of those memes, and just found out last week what a 'meme' was! Shirt STILL works!

Best in show, I think.

Re: Not Amused



Great line work and simple color scheme. I quite like this one, though I would not typically be drawn to shirts with cats.
I agree that this has appeal for the un-meme'd. personally I am not a fan of LOL cats (really not a fan), but anybody who logs on should know something about them.
well done!

Sure, distressing an image should be a basic skill for any designer. I have a mess of scraps of paper I did various scratches and marks on with black ink and anything from a wire brush to a crowquill pen to some random scrap of wood I found in the garage. I've scanned these and brought them into AI and Live Traced them with the Comic Art option. When I need one, I open it up, copy it and put it over the final image, then set the color to the same as the shirt color. I had to clean up this one some so the distressing wasn't obliterating words or important parts of the art. When I was happy with it, I selected everything and hit Merge, then deleted everything that was the shirt color.

There are sites all over that have free texture images you can use, but you need to have one that is both high contrast and 80-90% white so your image doesn't get completely obscured by the distress.

"Rejected because: With a lot of thought here, I'm not seeing any commentary on Katamari character. There's clearly no issue with the use of the meme characters, but there's not comment on Katamari."

Not only is your judgment bad, your English is worse!
This should be allowed to compete along with all the other entries! You said yourself there is no issue with Katamari..."no comment" I believe you said.

After all what is a meme but copy write infringing of overly posted cutesy themes?
I implore you to put a tad bit more thought into this entry and the artists right to sub it. Either that or reject the other entries that have copy write infringement possibilities. PLAY FAIR!

Yeah except that it's integral to their meme. How do you do a flowchart without text?

See, and that's what you should have said (you being hypothetical rejectionator) instead of "no commentary" - because woot's let fly parody without commentary quite a few times before.

Maybe they mean that there is no parody with that particular character?

It's funny that you're criticizing the english of woot while constantly spelling words wrong.

Anyway, the standard for copyrighted characters has always been parody or commentary on the character being displayed. This was rejected for not having any commentary (in part) - and you'd be right if this was inconsistently applied across the derby.

But most of the other entries display some form of parody. In the case of this entry, he Prince is rolling up a bunch of memes - which is exactly what he'd do in game (the Katamari games consist of rolling up similarly themed objects. For example, memes/meme characters). Since there's no commentary and no parody, this sort of buttafuocos the copyrighted character test.

Even some of the entries which do have parody have been rejected, so it's not just some attack on Ramy

The meme itself is questionable, did you visit know your meme? If you had then you would know this to be true.
It is a clear violation of the rules and yet it hasn't been expunged by Woot. Go figure!

Hate to break it to you, but 4chan is responsible for the majority of internet memes, period. They kinda are from the same realm of the internet.

Not from the same realm of the internet? I thought like 95% of internet memes originated at 4chan, or at least they greatly popularize them there.
