Re: Nyan's Dream
I love this and it's super cute, but I'm not entirely sure that I actually want to buy a shirt so strongly meme-inspired, given the transitory nature of memes.
Woot: I'm in it for the monkeys.

Obviously, you don't like cats, which is fine. Some people like birds, some like dogs... but to think entering a drawing depicting a pile of cats that have apparently been euthanized or poisoned into a shirt derby for CAT LOVERS, breaches all possible boundaries of human respect. You should be thoroughly ashamed of yourself, as should all of you people who have voted for it.
What really gets me, is that it looks like the artist actually took some time to draw and color this heinous spectacle, most likley laughing the whole time. He also has the pile in some kind of spotlight, showcasing the heartless act.
Again, it's fine that you don't like cats... but my Uncle Robert got discharged from the war honorably for a bum leg, and my aunt bought him home a cat to keep him company while she worked in the market. If it wasn't for that cat, my poor uncle's recovering would have been a lot longer and grueling. This is just in really poor taste, and is really upsetting.

Hello and welcome to woot! It is simply wonderful and heartening to see someone so passionate about cats. I myself am the proud and crazy owner of three cats and do very much empathise with the empassioned defense of their worthiness, goodness, and should-not-be-dead-ness. With my own expert expertise in cattery and well-honed master skills of forum readery, I am here to assure you that the artist is doing nothing more suspicious than illustrating a hyperbolic they-sure-do-love-that-sunlight catpile. If you have design criticism along the lines of Mr. Midgerock's, as seen above, then I will not be one to necessarily disagree. But please do let yourself rest easy in the knowledge that Teh Kitteh is well-respected in this design.
If, on the other hand, you are trolling the established woot trope of Today's Offended Party, then I see what you did there and salute you.
I was made to love magic, all its wonder to know.
But you all lost that magic, many many years ago.
