Ever since we got one of those birthday cards that listed all the stuff that happened the year we were born, we've been obsessing over the past. We asked the Shirt.Woot artists to let us in on the most momentous events from the years THEY were born, and aside from making us feel super old it also gave us a plethora of cool designs, such as:

 

1968: Food Was Cheap

by fishbiscuit5

You could've claimed this was a "Burgertime" reference and shaved almost 20 years off your age.

 

1982

by patrickspens

...and instantly loathed us for our AOL-speak.

 

1974: It's Alive!

by walmazan

Oh, the heady days of decorative mouse pads to show your personality at work.

 

1973 The Future is Now

by odysseyroc

The future is on fire and plummeting from the sky!

 

1989: RIP Salvador Dali

by cpresti

There will never be another mustache like it.

 

1974

by artulo

What's next? Foxes wearing sockses?

 

1981 A Legend is Born

by tjost

A legend is born, and milked with minimal innovation for the next 35 years.

 

1988: Return to Flight

by werewolfskippy

Too soon?

 

1972: Eggspecting

by Spiritgreen

AND HUMAN HISTORY WAS FOREVER CHANGED!

 

 

That's all for this Derby! We'll keep 'em around until the next Double-Take, but until then check out the current Derby and vote for your faves!

I am really glad the shuttle one made Honorable Mentions. Now I hope it wins on the next chance.

I pushed to make this derby "The Year You Weren't Born", wherein you could use any year other than the year you were born. No one likes my ideas.

I loved 1981: A Legend is Born, sad that it was ranked 8th, hope it makes it next derby!

Can we get a blog entry or something on derby themes that were proposed by staffers that never came to be?

I agree! I actually don't own any Walmazan designs yet, and I was looking forward to this one being my first . I'll cross my fingers that it does well in the double take! I'm glad it got an HM, at least.

Thanks for honoring my origin story, Woot! Yes, I am that egg mcmuffin.
