Do you not understand why this keeps being rejected?

Just because something is "popular" doesn't make it accurate.
Just because I have "assassin" in my username, doesn't mean I have an insatiable love for black pajamas and smoke pellets.
Yeah, like J5 said, I was just pointing out the irony there captain. Don't take it personal. It'd be like if I said I was sick of seeing shirts with alcohol or music related material on them. Although I do like beer. And sax!
I would buy this
I would also buy this, and I would wear it a lot.

Maybe we can get a private order
Over 100 votes again! Thanks everyone for the support!

Re: The outback
Where is Tasmania!??? You left out an entire state!
Very cool. It's like Yertle the Koala.
I really hope you sell this elsewhere, even if it doesn't win. This is by far my favorite derby entry thus far. Platypuses? Check. Cool, artistic design? Check. Does not feature the shape of Australia or cute animals attacking tourists? Check. I don't just want this shirt...I need it. DO YOU HEAR ME WOOT COMMUNITY?! Vote for this shirt! My life will be incomplete without a platypus shirt!!!!!!

Marsupials are born and develop in their mother's pouches, or pockets
It took some restraint to not flag the inclusion of the extra animals. That and the thumbnail may have cost some votes but has been a good trade off to see people discover the design and get behind it. Thanks for the great comments and steady stream of votes that kept the 'platypuses' in the New Hotness the whole time.
@ solarhands - That is hands down one of the best posts I have seen on woot. It deserves a Quality Post, free t-shirt, screaming monkey and to be put on it's own shirt. I wish there was an easy way to track down your other posts so I can read those as well, because that one made my day.
I was scrolling down the page with the wheel on my mouse, while looking at the design, and it moved down each time a perfect amount so that the platypus was replaced by one with a different color. Really interesting stop motion trippy looking effect. Try it out. Lol
Oh Woot, please, please, PLEASE, PRINT THIS!! IS AWESOMEEEE!!! ^^

Thanks for all the votes. Another loser for me... Better luck next week, I reckon.

joemail11 wrote:Yes, thank you. There IS a joke, albeit a weak one. Marsupials have pockets, this marsupial is in a pocket, it happens to be your pocket. Therefore, it is not "slapping a koala on a shirt," it has a point.
And yes, it is cutesy, and I wouldn't be caught dead wearing it, but I could see this shirt on other people.
Overall, a solid design from ramyb.
I have to disagree, the joke might have worked if the pocket had been on the belly of the shirt but as is I find nothing original or amusing about the design.
Re: Sulphur Crested Cockatoos
I always forget that Australia has parrots, not just South America.
oops - double post somehow...

I couldn't agree more, adorable and extremely wearable design.
Re: Australian Army Knife
I don't really think this stands alone outside of the Crocodile Dundee reference.
However, the most interesting thing to me would be if this prints, how large will it be and how low will it sit. I can fully see this looking like a giant knife erection.
Re: Danger down under
curious to know how to achieve the background without the use of gradients. I'm new to all of this so I want to know how to create something like this without using gradients.
Congratulations on winning a Best Loser Award!
This is not SPAM.
Winning a BLA does NOT mean this shirt won't print -- I'm hoping it does.
Your one and only gift is this crappy little badge in your shirt thread. Enjoy.
I like the Starbucks here that's better than the other one; cause the other one's not as good.
Oh, thanks! I was just thinking about how I miss getting these

But no t-shirts have a pocket in the middle of the belly. It works based off of our knowledge of a shirt pocket. The marsupial, with a pocket, is residing in a shirt pocket. I fail to see how this is difficult to understand.
As for not finding it amusing, I definitely see where you're coming from. It lacks a certain cleverness I've come to expect from shirt.woot.
Re: Marsupial in my pocket
One More Gimlet... I WANT ONE! SOOOOOO CUTE!

It's not going to be displayed in the Louvre and it's not going to be the piece of art that defines our generation. You're all acting like someone just took a utility knife to the Mona Lisa! How about this, lets all just take it for what it is and calm down a bit before someone has an aneurysm.

Best place to find 'em is in the pre-derby threads
Re: How High Can You Go?
No prob. I promised my daughter that I would submit this, but warned her that it might get rejected. I'll make sure the next submission is SVG based.
Re: Advanced Sheep Shearing
I was thinking this was another example of Spiritgreen's slow descent into madness, but if you guys like it then I must be okay.
Re: Gary Discovers a New Species
Great job on the characters. I think I would have preferred the design without the trees. GMV
Re: Drop Bears
I'm glad you subbed this one first because I really prefer the sunny yellow. It seems a lot more appropriate. (Hope the green one isn't splitting your votes too much!)
You say it's a plait, but I see a double helix - which makes it all the more awesome. :^)
