Heh heh, yeah, that's true. I've no delusions that what I wrote will make any sort of difference, but I felt compelled to answer the question of centeredness (new word? I think so!) with some kind of evidence.

I agree with that. Especially since someone earlier posted that they didn't feel it was offcenter to their eyes...which makes no sense because it's not a subjective kind of thing.

2) Woot's customer base is INCREDIBLY conservative. The word contraceptive is a dirty word to them even more than a normal person. Saying it implies people should have sex, and that's morally wrong. God is the best contraceptive.

3) The rare concerned woot citizen for social rights has, in the past, been offended by a rooster wearing a feathered native american headdress, abe lincoln pulling a giraffe out of his hat, and an abstract art piece where some were insistent they saw a swastika. An intentional one. A shirt about contraceptives will not fly with such people. Look at Plan B, in the long long ago. People apparently stopped realizing that "plan b" was a concept before a contraceptive, and insisted that that was what the tee was about (instead of a clip-art cash in mocking the last week's winner, which was also a clip-art cash in).

4) A creative juxtaposition of product and slogan is never going to fly at a site whose last slogan contest gave us "Looks Like Carmen was in San Diego." Wooters want something they can easily show off and have the highest possible number of other people giggle. That requires obvious and preferably

5) It's well done. Self explanatory, but for context, how many Walmazan tees have sold well after winning, compared to how many walmazan tees haven't been well done?

This is simply not a place good things win. Be appalled, but shocked?



I'm conservative, I'm Christian, and I voted for this shirt and bought the renamed "Special Delivery" from Wences/Walmazan. Nobody does risque'/"wait-did he just say that" quite as well as he does.

We (Christians) do have a sense of humor you know. And as far as the sex thing goes, my pastor actually did a sermon series on the subject.

That said, I can actually think of a couple of people within my own church who would buy this if it prints, and I'll post a link to my FB page if it does.

So, before bitterly clinging to your stereotypes and tropes, perhaps you should invest a bit more thought, eh?

*edit: fix illict to say invest. (Guess that is what I get for typing too quickly.)

Really, artists. Remeber that part of the derby rules asking for "original"? Kudos for your historical knowledge of the product, I suppose. There, I said something nice.

Cheeseburger is a funny word to a chinese person, any word is funny to a cat. I don't see "Catnip" anywhere on this shirt. I just don't get it!

I must be as high as this cat!

I'd say the difference is, the crazy pills weren't promoting any drug, legal or otherwise. That one was making a (bad) pun.

This is just a pot leaf shirt, promoting pot. Also, pot leaf shirts are for Vogonity bag teenagers that think the fact that they smoke pot makes them so cool they need everyone to know.

Not for you, I prefer it the way it is. I was just helping meh see the product by phrasing it like 99% of the other shirts.

It's weird to think that in today's world, just existing subjects you to a ceaseless bombardment of advertising, marketing gimmicks, and various ham-fisted attempts to convince you to buy junk. People will buy a t-shirt with a logo on it, essentially paying for the right to be walking billboards. So why not spread the capitalist spirit?



That's just the write-up, not the rules. Besides, your cut out is also describing that the derby is about advertizing for a product.

You have also failed to argue against my other points.

I think the opposite actually, it's one of the first I clicked on because it's funny. It sticks out because you think "This shirt CAN'T actually be about poo!" and so you click on it to find out. It really stokes curiosity!

Of course, if you are a stodgy old codger and frown at poo jokes this shirt probably isn't for you.

firt off, i wasnt arguing when i first posted, i was simply stated what i understood the write and the derby rules to mean.

now i am arguing:

1)the write up helps clarify the derby theme, so you should be paying attention to it.

2) your main arguement seems to be that they are promoting the information rather than the wiki site. there are two flaws with that, 1) you arnt the artist so you dont know what they were intending to promote. and 2) it doesnt matter because they are BOTH INTANGIBLE.

3)this point you made sure to ignore in my previous post. Look at all the other derby entries with intangible objects...notice something? they are all REJECTED. I would take that to CLEARLY MEAN that they want TANGIBLE common everyday products, not INTANGIBLE common everyday products.

so in conclusion, even if the write up didnt clearly express they wanted TANGIBLE objects (which to me, it did very clearly read that) The fact that they rejected so many other designs because they were INTANGIBLE should be OBVIOUS to you that they want TANGIBLE things.

so you are basically arguing that they should unreject this ONE shirt, because you think the website is tangible? because that is what it comes down to. they rejected it because they found it to be INTANGIBLE. you can take that to mean the the rules for this derby include only TANGIBLE objects. so please, tell me again why this should be unrejected?

I have yet to see a gummy bear that actually looks like a bear, though I guess there is usually a snout-like protrusion. Adding bits of hair stuck to the half-eaten one would have been an interesting take on fur.

I think the shirt is OK, but I would critique the (as usual, vacant) eyes. For this concept, I just wish they would blend in more - gummy bears don't usually don't have anything white for eyes, or any eyes at all except maybe for little bumps. It would be hard to make them "scared" with no eyes, but it seems an interesting problem worth trying harder to solve.
