Derby #352: Grumpy

by wootbot

Ugh. Another derby. Just what we wanted, NOT! And while we're at it, what's with the jeans kids wear these days? And why doesn't anyone know how to drive? And would it kill you to pick up the phone once in a while? Look, we'll level with you. We're in a bit of a grumpy mood. So this week, we're looking for the grumpiest sourpuss designs you got. Feed our bummer! 

  • No creme 
  • No Grumpy Cat

by wootbot

Kids' books are great! They're like grown-up books with fewer of the boring parts (the words) and more of the good stuff (pictures)! But it seems like there's always some some movie producer or artist who wants to gut a children's book just to make a little bit of money.

  • No modern pop culture
  • In celebration of our 350th Derby, the winner of the first-place design receives (in addition to the standard $1,000) the contents of this box: 

OH EM GEE WHAT IS IT???

Derby #349: Leisure & Playground Sports

by wootbot

"Red Rover, Red Rover, send Brian right over! And we will do our best to injure Brian by whatever means possible because we are ruthless child-beasts!"

Playground games. Leisure sports. Activities for the non-athletic kids. Whatever you call them, these games are indelibly etched into our collective memories (and, most likely, our actual skeletons). These days we've moved onto other silly games like ping-pong, darts, shuffleboard, and bowling -- "sports" for the sport-averse. 

Here's a non-exhaustive list to get your brains stormin': Kick the can, tetherball, darts, lawn darts, horseshoes, tag, fourquare (the original), duck duck goose, red light green light, bocce ball, red rover, ping-pong, darts...
