I'm guessing the trademark lawyers would have a fit if it said "That's All Folks!", huh?

In fact, it isn't.

As a non-card carrying member of PETA I nonetheless find this shirt offensive. Please remember that animals are not ours for use in entertainment, experiments, or to eat. How would you like it if you were a famous pig and people joked about pumping you full of lead? I doubt you'd think it was funny. Pigs, like all animals, have a brain and a central nervous system. They feel fear, pain, sadness and other emotions, just like you and me. Please don't buy this shirt, it's just downright offensive to the poor celebrity pigs out there.

I wish shirt.woot could do mockups of the shirts. I remember they had some for that BigFootSasquatch disaster of a shirt.

Will likely get this if it's still up after work, that's my rule.
:P

So, is the whole joke of this shirt, "porky pig got shot"? Or is there something actually funny going on that I'm not seeing.

I seriously want to know, I feel like I've got to be missing something.

Well, see, Porky Pig always said "That's All Folks" at the end of Looney Tunes episodes, right? And when he gets shot, that really is all, folks! Make more sense now? Not so much?

Yeah, I got all of that. I guess it's just not my cup of tea when it comes to humor. Carry on.

I loved the ones like Got Milk, Peanut Butter & Jellyfish Sandwich, the grilled cheese one, and the cute colorful ones. They are few and far between. You can sure see the Korean and Japanese influance in them now. They love violence in their humor. But I believe woot sold their stock to they which is you. Right?

Finally someone else has noticed how woot has shunned cute in favor of Asian inspired violence. I knew it wasn't just me.

Perhaps you'd care to elaborate on what "Asian inspired violence" means or what shirts in particular fit that category and have been flooding the Woot market lately. Genuinely curious...

I for one appreciate a little dark humor. I love my Woot shirts, but we can only take so much in regards to cute pandas and penguins. Sometimes the pig just has to take the bullet. N41!

Why did it take so many shots to kill a pig standing in a circle?
It's not like he had anywhere to go!

With the price of ammunition these days, someone needs to hit the range again.

Actually, it looks like several strafing lines. You just can't see the ones in the center because of the black circle.

A black & white film noir version would have been very apt.

Still, couldn't resist getting one!

But, in Safari, the lenovo advertisement is on a higher layer than the shirt graphic enlargement. As a result, I can never see the fully enlarged graphic by just clicking on it once. Definitely a drag.

Mods of woot, please fix this. I want to want to buy more shirts.

I think it also has some influence from the French noir tragedies (you know, where everyone is dead at the end). But as those movies aren't my thing I can't say for sure.

Anyone think this just might be the final shirt and that shirt.woot may close for good at midnight?

Nah, didn't think so. Not even they have such a twisted sense of humor. Or do they?

Clearly, it's a reference to the recent proliferation of panda shirts. "Odd Bear Out," "Just a Little Paint," and "Bearloons" all star protagonists who wearing expressions of what one might expect if someone kicked their puppy. Hence, "Asian [animals whose expressions appear] inspired [by] violence."

Cartoon Brew rules. I figured they might mention this. In fact, I'm surprised they didn't mention Monday's "Traveling on the Speed of Sound" too, since that'd be right up their alley.
