In for my first Shirt.Woot purchase, in large part due to the "There are FOUR aces" line (that ST:TNG episode is by far my favorite).

What a great shirt to let everyone know you're hip to memes that are years past their expiration date. The only thing missing is the Borg Queen saying "all your shirt are belong to us."

As silly as this shirt is, I couldn't pass it up! Glad I got one before it sold out.

Sweet! I was able to nab one before the dreaded Sold Out! meme slapped our a$$es.

Clearly, this wasn't a trap.

Wow so this is sold out pre 10:00am...

Thanks for giving us normal people who like star wars and TNG a decent shot at getting a funny t-shirt, nerds.

Ah I'm j/k with you sillies - but I do hate you for being so rude.

Thanks for all the nice comments, everyone, and thank you so much for the votes!

Two big shout-outs: one to my fantastic husband and the other to wooter jago, for his/her excellent Riker suggestion. You guys rock!!!

I can't believe this shirt sold out already. The one night I go to sleep at a decent time I miss out. I guess I will be paying $15 for this one. Gosh Woot has taken so much money from me in the last 2 weeks.

Perhaps you could check woot before you go to bed at 10pm... I always figured the west coast types always had the advantage over everyone since they can buy it the night prior. Suck it up and buy it off the Reckoning.

Picard has a famous line from when he was being tortured by a Cardassian: "There are four lights!" Excellent tribute to that dramatic episode.

This was my first thought too, but apparently not. It looks like the Cardasian torture episode is way better known.

I did not know the Vader NOOOO! and had to look it up so you're doing better than I am. The woot-ese substitution was a little confusing too.

Picked mine up before the sellout. Originally was going to get two so I'd have a backup, but then I decided I'd wait to see how good the print was in person before I forked over for a second.

Great, great concept. It's not really parody, but it fits the theme of meme mashup perfectly. As for it screaming "nerd", which people seem to be complaining about, so what? Nerd pride.

I've been trying to imagine just who these Nerds are who think they don't naturally scream "nerd"...

Its a trap, yes. "Noooo" is not a meme.
Facepalm, yeah. Aces? Do I need to be a picard/trek fan to "get it"?



Yes, you can't by any run-of-the-mill nerd for this humor...it takes a special kind.

It is? Must be one of those memes that no one can actually remember. If you google it, all you get is a link to THIS SITE.

Wow... I knew it would sell out, but I didn't expect it so early. I'm happy I picked this up last night.

I am going back in time to pick up one of these shirts when they were in stock. I am looking for a volunteer to accompany me; safety is not guaranteed. You must bring your own weapons. I have only done this once before.

I'll have to get this on the second go-round tonight at midnight. It could have been executed better but it's too full of nerdly win to pass up for this lifelong Star Wars / Star Trek geek. Plus, "Chain of Command" is my favourite episode. Han Solo instead of Ackbar would have been PERFECT.

Congratulations on the print!

Anyone else think that this shirt would make more sense on the Trek side of things if Picard was the one in facepalm mode and Number One was being the otterific poker player?

I think this shirt is pretty epic. I found it funny they had this shirt here and on teefury they had a Calvin and Hobbs of Han & Chewie.

Out of a massive collection of witty, insightful, whimsical, creepy, mind boggling and, at times, just plain wrong write ups...this climbs atop the mountain and shouts, "YES! We are the woot! writers! We WILL be heard!"

I'm in awe of how great this writeup is...and thanks you you all, I will now have this song stuck in my head...all day.

Brent Spinner would be proud.

So would John de Lancie.

And I just HAVE to applaud the masterful re-write of "Johnny" to "Data"...it works even better than the original!

I think the most clever use of meme has been lost in this thread: 'It's a trap' is most likely a reference to the fact that Vader lost the pot on a trap hand. As in, he went in with a poor hand that looked good but ultimately lost to Picard's 4 aces.

Clever, but, I cannot claim a TG pedigree, so, I'll pass....

With the exception of the Four Aces reference, this shirt is a walking TotalFark thread.
