Be honest now; how many of you actually had to start typing "champ..." in a google search box to see if it auto-completed with "-ion" or "ian"?

I will neither confirm nor deny... but I'll certainly ware this shirt with pried.

This really isn't up to Woot artistic standards. I'll bet it's a low seller.

As a former Spelling Bee contestant and champion I'm deeply offended by this shirt.

I agree, I even copy/pasted the image into Word and it didn't underline anything. Looks good to me!

I wonder if woot has any spellchecker technology for the prints they do or if someone types it out to check it. Has there ever been a genuine misspelling that made it to the printers?

Yes, because most school spelling bee shirts were highly artistic... (rolls eyes @ u) Seriously, it's supposed to look like the real deal and most schools don't have graphic designers to do their class t-shirts. I suppose they could have made it distressed to look old, but that's about it.

No offense to the artist but these motto shirts are getting old.

I needed this shirt when I was in school. I had terrible spelling, I've gotten a lot better over the years but only through a lot of writing which schools never seem to want you to enjoy doing or anything. Grumbles.

See it's funny because the word champion is spelled wrong, see that, har har har. Guh his tshirt will be a fine indicator of people who have a boring sense of humor and crap artistic taste.

Yeah, because people who buy t-shirts for their artistic value are so interesting. Please, do tell me more about how your artsy t-shirt is a metaphor for your inner anguish and how the subtle shading in the background represents the impending darkness that awaits us all. Yes, I agree, your t-shirt is so artistic that you are clearly a much better person than people with just text on their shirts.

Ah that just in medical where, you know, a single change in the spelling of the word wouldn't lead to a misdiagnosis or anything like that.

There is a school in town with a sign that says it's called "Little Einstens Preschool". If I had unlimited cash-flow, I'd buy one for each and every one of the little Einstens.

As it is, I'm trying to decide if I buy one for each of my kids or just one for myself to wear on classroom volunteer day.

I loved "Jaxxssonn" in the writeup. I used to be a reporter in a small town, and after e.g. taking a photo of a school class with kids like Kieth and Issac (pronounced Isaac), I was bursting with being unable to ask their parents if they intentionally chose an odd spelling slightly off from the common spelling, or if they just didn't know how the name is usually spelled.

I never had this problem taking photos at the senior center. Ruby, Frank, Grace, etc., always spelled the way you think it should be spelled, never Rubee, Franc, Grayce, or anything like that.

I think I saw this shirt at Target once. Or maybe it was Old Navy.

I can't help but notice that my state (Mississippi) isn't "wooting" much on the sales map. Could this be one of the reasons we're ranked 50th in the nation in education?

I just want to know who the final person in the class was! The writeup describes 22 illiterate, 3 failures, and this, um, winner, out of a class of 27. Why didn't the 27th win???

This is the first shirt I've bought in over a year from woot that wasn't blank. Honestly. I loathe all of the cutesy animals and wanna-be deep illustrations of cherry-blossom trees.

This shirt is hilarious. Too bad these are still printed on the horrible, horrible anvil tees. Until they fix the ladies' sizing - I can't buy any of these awesome shirts.

I don't want a boxy, unflattering t-shirt.

Totally would have bought it.
