Thanks, guys! :D Props to the writers for an awesome writeup.

The Black Knight has a red boar on his chest in the film, so that's why there are boars on his crest. And no deadly rabbit, because it has nothing to do with the Black Knight directly. Same goes for other references.

"What....is the air speed velocity of an un-laden swallow?"

Would that be an African or European Swallow?

Sorry... had to be done.

Would have been nice to see the motto obscured in Latin.

I dunno about that. Fish with antlers sounds like it would top just about everything. :D

I have WAY too many t-shirts (is there such as thing as too many Woot shirts? I think not)... but I'm definitely going to pick this one up.

*Thhhrraaa-bmmmm* Message for you, Sir.

Did anyone else get an email from Amazon advertising shirt.woot today?? I've never received one before... pretty cool...


Anyway... fantastic write-up! It made me smile on this gloomy, rainy day.

Great job on the shirt. I'd have personally liked to see the crest a bit more crest-like, but it's still great.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'd like to reminisce of days gone by...

Mine has a bloody, chopped-off hand (which was apparently a positive thing according to the history)... but now I feel that we're not trying hard enough, and we need to lose at least another appendage or two...

I made sure to buy 5 of...no...3 of them!! That way the entire family can go to amusement parks dressed alike to share our geekdom together!!

Purchases: Too many to track anymore but only 3 Birthday of Celebrations since 2006.

Only the good die young.... But most people are morally ambiguous which explains our random dying patterns....

I really like this shirt... BUT, I would have liked it sooo much more if the two flanking boars were instead evil killer rabbits.

This shirt was posted on shirt.woot. And there was much rejoicing.

But, the shrubbery!!! Thankfully, the shirt is nice, and not too expensive.

You'll get it Friday. That's the standard canned response.

LOVE the idea, LOVE the write up (I am personally one of those nerds, as are my best friends). And I love the design... except for the shield. The Black Knight has no shield in the movie. "Coat of (No) Arms" is a clever idea, but I just don't like the shield design.

Sorry for being a hater =/ I really do like the tee, and I'll probably wind up getting it anyway (no MP fan could pass up on something like this).

None shall pass... up this shirt! Unfortunately, I can't wear it. I've got no arms left.

I think you could also wear it to a castle filled with eight score young blondes and brunettes. Might not stay on long though.

I'd give an arm & a leg for this shirt but luckily it's only a few dollars.

Everyone loves the Black Knight.

Though I la-la-LOVE this shirt and how it looks, instead of boars, I would have chosen the Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog and the Holy Hand Grenade to embellish this stellar coat of no arms. I know, it's so easy to be an armchair artist, so I'm just going to shut my pie hole and buy two shirts.

I love that the supporters are boars. I'd forgotten that it was a canon costume reference and assumed it referred to the MP quoters. (Traditional heraldry had much worse puns, I swear.)

I was going to pay my electric bill before I laid eyes on this shirt, let's just hope I can get this comment in before they shut it off and remove my flesh to pay for the bill.

Props on the writeup Woot.

Geeky/creepy/freaky as this may be, I have a 10" Black Night figure (ok, doll) that has detachable bloody limbs that is one of my prized possessions. There was a whole HG collection - I had to have the BK. Its awesome.

I cant believe you got that! I wanted one, but my local comic book shop sold out! I do have a stuffed rabbit though that when you pinch the back of his head a giant mouth with sharp pointy teeth opens!

Saved by the ni! Just went to use my coupon from the May random tees and saw it expires August 1. That was fortuitous.

Also, this is an amazing design— the simplicity of lines is really fitting for the coat of arms theme. And don't get me started on the blood-flourishes! Just gorgeous, and I don't often say that about blood.

Anybody remotely interesting is mad in some way.

I've already commented on how amazing i find this t-shirt, but i just want to tell Kari Fry/the rest of Woot that this shirt was featured on Topless Robot's geek apparel of the week, a high praise for any t-shirt indeed

I love, love, love this shirt. I am a huge (3XL) MP fan. I have to give this t-shirt a 99 out of 100 for just one little reason. If the banner was Just a flesh wound in Latin it would have been a PERFECT 100. But I got it because I do love it!!!

Curious why the boar on the left has a hoof turned around.

If I remember correctly, he sustained all these injuries while on the job. He must have had a sweet payout from workers comp.

The only reason this isn't sold out is because it looks like a robot shirt in the thumbnail on the main woot site.
(the pigs look like arms holding the banner at a glance)

My friend likes Monty Python, so I think that I will get this for him and hope that he likes it! I think that he will, though I'm not sure that he will like the fancy red flourishes in the background.

I am looking to buy "Life Choices", any size, send me a message!

So fuhqued up.

Went ahead and ordered one for my friend. Do any of you guys out there think that the red flourishes in the background is too girly? That's the only thing that I am worried about.

I think the number of people that would find a coat of arms or blood to be "girly" are few and far between. I'm sure he'll like it. =)

I LOVE this movie! I first saw it on the very first pay channel for movies, channel 100, and they played over and over for a month. There are so many classic scenes but this one is my favorite. Thanks for posting it!
This shirt is hilarious!!

hyuk, I just thought that maybe he wouldn't like how the red blood looks flowery in some places on it. I'm sure that he won't even notice though hopefully since he is a big fan of Monty Python.

Totally awesome! makes me wish I ever wore t-shirts, glad I have a brother who does and perhaps the Woot writers know because they sure described him perfectly. Extra awesome because yesterday was his birthday - means I am the best sister in the world with this bonus present

forever fighting the urge to buy something just because it is cheap and cool...wait, it's cheap and cool, let me click that big yellow button!
