When the description got to the "well endowed" bit I thought for a moment they were talking about Kiera Knightly -- the flattest woman in Hollywood!

Very confused there....

Probably the worst shirt other than the Cookie Monster one. Can't believe the Gozerhead shirt is about to face a Reckoning and this boring shirt will be up for another week. I really wish people would pick more clever designs (like Gozerhead or the pi/pie shirt or the Pluto shirt)in the derbies. There were so many better designs.

It's got a Reaper Mini kind of look to it. Pirates and Swashbucklers and guns (and boobs) oh my!

You're definitely right. She's the right style and everything. She'd look good in Torchlight. ;)

Love this shirt - had to buy it. I didn't realize it until now, but the last two Woot shirts I just HAD to have are by the same designer.

With 2 zombie and a pirate shirt under his belt, Patrick only needs to get a ninja tee printed to complete the triumvirate!

Your confusion is understandable, I was confused by the 'Latina' reference - Penélope Cruz being from Spain - it took me a second to remember that 'Latina' also refers to women from Spain and not just from Mexico or points further south.

My morning 'DOH' moment.

But she certainly is Latina and well-endowed.

Actually, the buckler refers to a small shield/blunt bashing weapon, as seen in this picture: http://www.thearma.org/essays/SandB/Gladiatoria112.jpg

So, yeah, typically goes with a sword, but it's the mini-shield that really makes you a swashbuckler.

I thought the term referred to the action of swashing ones buckler, which was to stand in front of the house of someone you wanted to fight and hit your buckler with your sword.

At least, that's the way the guys of Fight School explain it.

A great sweeping swing is a swash (this one I knew). The making of the noise is swashing (this I didn't know).

At least it is according to this archaic dictionary.

Not to toot your fluet, but she is indeed a finely cut-lass (supreme) and you should take a bow for such a keen jib.

But let's all show some tack and not make any junk carracks about her fine sloop, tight rigging, or how they'd like to schooner.

Perhaps, although the pistol is more accurate in terms of piratical history. Pirates were better marksmen than they were swordsmen (or swordswomen, in this case).

Not to rain on your parade or anything, but I thought the cookie monster shirt was pretty clever (which is why I own it), just as clever as the Pi/Pie shirt. Some people maybe do not like the "metal" look of gozerhead? It's not always about clever either, sometimes it wins because it looks good, or it fits the theme well (ok maybe not that one as much...).

However I will agree that the art here look more suited to a poster or mousepad or something than a t-shirt. It is beautiful, but just doesn't scream "wear me" to me and also sort of looks like something one would indeed find in a disney gift shop; some people dig that though.

The important thing is that you manifested your frustration into positive energy and used it to create something rather than just tearing down someone else's work on the internet.

Instead, I noticed that her mast covers the South marker. Perhaps we can find it beneath the rigging.

Spaniards are not typically considered Latinos; the term is generally used to refer to Latin Americans.

oh come on. if you're going to refer to wikipedia at least read it.

Though often used interchangeably in American English, Hispanic and Latino are not identical terms, and in certain contexts the choice between them can be significant. Hispanic, from the Latin word for "Spain", has the broader reference, potentially encompassing all Spanish-speaking peoples in both hemispheres and emphasizing the common denominator of language among communities that sometimes have little else in common. Latino—which in Spanish means "Latin" but which as an English word is probably a shortening of the Spanish word latinoamericano—refers more exclusively to persons or communities of Latin American origin. Of the two, only Hispanic can be used in referring to Spain and its history and culture; a native of Spain residing in the United States is a Hispanic, not a Latino...

it's good to know that i am not the only one helping keep patrickspens well fed. this is my 6th purchased design of his on woot out of 11 total.


Except for the fact that the designer of any shirt that prints gets a flate rate for print day no matter how many are sold (as far as I understand). They do make $ if you buy from the reckoning page at $15 a clip though. Sorry to burst your bubble, but I was surprised when I found that out too. But hey, business is business I guess...

Heh...you said "rimshot" =P Thanks for the reply! I like the "ba-dum" it better accentuates the rapidness between the drumbeats and separates the cymbal...but I just don't hear the "i" you use in your version. No worries though =)

You know, it's actually very interesting when you think about the etymology there...I mean, think about it. I wonder which came first...the nautical use or the insult meaning. I'd bet it was the nautical use and it became a derrogatory term down the line somewhere...too lazy to look into it though haha

I just got this shirt and it seems to be made of thinner stuff than previous shirts -- like a noticeable flesh-colour undertone when I'm wearing it.

What's the deal? D:
