Hope it doesn't die yet. Might have to get a third copy.

Next week -

Run Away! at the top of the chart, Crowd Control at the bottom.

Almost definitely.

Crowd Control begs the question "what makes an unpopular tee shirt unpopular?" It isn't my cup of tee, but is far better executed than Skatetown.

Questionable Table stands a great chance to hit 10k. Cheese might NOT stand a chance to hit 20k ...

As for Crowd Control ... I don't know. As most of us know, when it comes to Wooters, there's no correlation with taste vs. sales, so we end up with the results that we do.

Thanks for the pep-talk, I'm over my pout ^_^. And... my post wasn't meant to be a Ramy bash - he doesn't have a whole lot of control over whether he fogs or whether he sells over 5000. Actually, my feelings about Marsupial are pretty much a metaphor for how I feel about a lot of things right now... my quirky neighborhood is being gentrified, my favorite resale shop has been replaced by condos, and my favorite DIY blogger now has sponsors and devotes a few days a month to product reviews. It ALL makes me sad.

I WILL keep voting and commenting... it will take more than a Marsupial to get the woot monkey off my back! (Sure wish I'd been wooting when Cuteness Overflow printed!)

I hope Bella is OK and doesn't need surgery - I have been through all of that a few times and it is always tough. Good luck to you both.

Some folks here would probably debate that one ...

But yeah, the change is inevitable, and both extremes will always continue to be at odds. Me ... I'm somewhere in the middle, with some (a lot of?) geek thrown in there for good measure too.

And thanks for the good thoughts. The vet did say that most of the time, it's benign, but that it is still an irritation, especially if it continues to grow. Whatever comes up, it means I need to severely curtail my shirt buying here.

BTW, teetrade shows three cuteness overflow shirts as available.

Looks like Lori worked up Bella's samples last night - actually she had multiple Bellas, but one was probably yours - samples handled with care - each one is a critter in need

Actually I think it will debut at #2. Admittedly, I don't have the quite the handle on the numbers that Narfcake does, but my best guess is that Darth will still be #1 at the beginning of the new reckoning.

Agreed, and I'm surprised at how poorly it has sold. There's nothing particularly wrong with it, but I guess it just doesn't float anyone's boat. If you want to dive into possible reasons why it's unpopular, I'll throw a few ideas into the discussion:

1. It's a strange button order, so it doesn't match up with anything in the real world.
2. No irony, parody, or humor for what is otherwise ordinary and unassuming.
3. With no other references on the shirt, it has that "wha?" factor that makes people feel they should get it right away but don't, and thus they dismiss it as ineffective.

QTOE @ 10k is almost a given at this point. It looks like it will survive another week and only needs 61 for the milestone.

Cheese @ 20k will likely happen if it survives today. The same sales as this week again would put it only about 20 short, and I think it would sell that many it it's last hours.

Its sales have been on the decline for a little while now. There was discussion about front loaded sales when it came out ... after all, it hit 10k in its second week in the reckoning.

So let's hear it -
ONE MORE WEEK! ONE MORE WEEK! ONE MORE WEEK!.

Same goes with another shirt too ...
ONE MORE WEEK! ONE MORE WEEK! ONE MORE WEEK!

Okay, bear with me; it's taking a little longer than usual to wake up and get going today. So there was a Reckoning? And some shirts are going away? Well, that's fine, I guess. Doesn't really affect me none. I suppose if you were wantin' one of those Reckoning designs you might feel some pressure to pick one up today, because come midnight they'll be gone forever. Not me, though. I couldn't care less. Hmm? Which ones? Oh, here. Today's your last chance to buy:

Oh yay, WootBot showed up for work today! And the two will live on for ONE MORE WEEK! too ... though might be about it. Three bystanders will definitely survive next week.
