Can't see that myself...maybe angry croc?

My copy and pasting senses are tingling!

Also, for some reason I'm reminded of the Disney Channel short, "Can You Teach My Alligator Manners?"

Examine Bindle of Carrots.
What Bindle of Carrots?

This is a hilarious shirt. Birds always have such a defiant, what-are-YOU-gonna-do-about-it? look on their face. (I own a bird...trust me, it's true) Then they get their comeuppance.

Incidentally, I learned about Chocodiles today. Being a Midwesterner, I had never heard of those before. Now I want one.

Even on a cloudy day, I'll keep my eyes fixed on the sun...

No this shirt is not hilarious. Unless it is making some pop reference I dont understand, it is mundane and expected.

As for pompous birds getting their reward, who though that needed a shirt?

Is it a red shirt reference? Well then surely the captain and science officer should have survived.

I wish the t-shirt featured my neighbor's 3 cats instead of birds, would have made me happier.

It's an illustration from the recently discovered Seuss book, "One Bird, Two Bird, Red Bird, Dead Bird."

Ooh, people are snarky today. Maybe it's a shirt about how quickly people turn on one another. Or how when people get what they want, they are happy, but the second that they don't get their way, right away (i.e. red bird), they show their true toothy selves. Snap! This design isn't my cuppa tea, but I just assumed that was a matter of personal preference rather than some subjective rule of wootness. Being an artist is a rough gig, eh?

the story is simple:
first there was 1 bird
then there were 2 birds
then there were 3 birds
and then magically confetti sprang out of the crocodiles mouth scaring the birds away.
the end.

Woot = food, puns, and snark! Not my cuppa either, but a well executed design. I always check the number of shirts folks have purchased before I decide whether to put much stock in their snark.

Those Birds look like POPCYCLES. I bet that aligator was in some sort of contest to see how many he could eat.

(Hi TMan)

Great Shirt when it reminds you of friends, otherwise it's kind of doctor suess like in nature.

Question, I just go a woot! shirt in, and I noticed that the tag no longer has the woot! logo on it. In it's place is the brand name "American Apparel" I know that they make the shirts, but, where has my coveted woot! logo gone? Is this some amazonian scheme to destroy my beloved shirtmonger?

A guess:
Is it one of the new colors they are offering (slate sliver)? May be they go tthe first batch quickly and didn't get the branding on it due to rush.

Hmm, nope, it's on the brown that I know and love.

Another source mentioned that it may be that they ran out of woot! branded blanks and subbed in a non-branded counterpart (which would follow in suit with your statement). If so I may consider myself lucky to own the little misfit.

It was what I was always taught in graphic design, in visual arts and again at Uni with multimedia design. And when you think about it, it makes sense: things seem a lot more stable when they have an odd amount of elements in the picture.


Interesting facts…


EDIT: here is a good article explaining it a lot better than I ever could: Rule of Three and Odd Numbers.
