*gasp!* I've never clicked the "I want one!" button so fast for a woot shirt!

Ace illustration!

I didn't used to be too sure about yellow shirts but my gf wears Robbie Lee's "Youbetchucan" and Boots & Edgar's "Crooked Couch" all the time and they've really grown on me.

Sizing Question - is the XL women's tee really only slightly larger than the small men's tee? That seems quite little ...

I wish yesterdays shirt would have been printed on this ugly yellow. Best design ever on ill fitting Honduras shirts

Pros: The pills were there.
Cons: So was the tank.

It's easy! Just eat their preserved hearts!

Also, very cute shirt. Makes me wish I had a daughter.

Yes. That was the problem with the AA blanks. I can wear either the women's XL or the men's small.

I didn't think I would say this, but I'm now much more inclined to buy a shirt if it's printed on the Anvil blanks.

LOL. I have a 3yr old daughter and immediately thought the same thing! We've seen a lot of leap frog.

My question is do I wear this or my "Eat More Kale" shirt? Hmmmm.....


I did have artichoke for breakfast this morning... but I'm just not feeling it.

The fact that it's on a base that isn't gray/black makes it an automatic winner in my book.

Never mind my soft spot for anthropomorphic vegetables.

I've never heard anyone say that in my life... seriously, who says that?? Is this a teen thing? Maybe primarily a British-ism like "easy peasy lemon squeezy?" So baffled... (or old? ;))

You just gave another idea to shirt.woot designer. Expect lemon juice on a lemon blank soon.

It looks sort of hoppy, like a cascade hop that would go into a good India Pale Ale.

Whhhaaa??? Where are you from? I'd say it's primarily a little-kid thing, or something parents say around young kids - like "Oopsie Daisy!". But, considering I'm a little kid at heart - it's perfect for me at 25!

Also, everytime I hear Oopsie Daisy, I always think about Julia Robert's character mocking Hugh Grant's character in Notting Hill.

So, I like it, I might have to buy it.

But someone needs to make a shirt with Mola Ram from Temple of Doom pulling out an artichoke heart while saying "Kali ma... Kali ma... Kali ma, shakthi deh!"

Had to buy it! I love artichokes and this is on an AA blank! And in a color I don't have, no less. So I was unable to say no. :D

Woot's switch to Anvil blanks has managed to squeeze more money out of me than I expected, but for the wrong reasons. Now when I see a shirt on an AA blank, if I even somewhat like it, I buy it. It used to be that I would think it over and generally not buy. But now if I see it's on an AA blank I'm throwing my money at them. I guess it'll only be this way until they run out of women's AA blanks though.

Also it got a lot of use on the TV show Kids next door, which was on heavy rotation, say 6 years ago. One of the chars said it a lot.

Which means it will probably sell well to people who simply want a yellow AA shirt. Not to disparage the cute design.

Hm, I really like this design, and the color looks okay on my screen, but I worry that the shirt will arrive in a less-pale tone, and I hate wearing bright yellow shirts. Can anyone vouch that this is a muted yellow, despite the description saying "Lemon yellow"?

It sounds more like a Ned Flanders thing as well. Such a cute design...

So does this mean I'm doomed to buy this shirt?



I say no...if only because your athletics logo is so fierce.

If you think you should be in an XL the mens large should be good, XL if you want to be careful. But keep in mind this printer (woot) is switching shirt suppliers - so pay attention to the sizing chart as it has been inconsistent on which supplier has been used.

This shirt captures my favorite kinds of woots: those that make me smile each time that I see them. And if a shirt makes me smile every time that I catch sight of myself in a mirror - well, that's an accomplishment. Ape Lad, thanks for bringing a little bit of sunshine (and my first yellow shirt!) into my life.



Agree, Agree, Agree! I had to buy one, despite being worried about the yellow color, because it gave me that happy little giggle when I saw it. So simple, but so awesome.
