I love it. Hilarious combination of both shirts, yet keeping it a fairly new design. Great job guys.

Great fun, Patch.

Gotta lighten it up sometimes... thanks for the smile.

Hmm, just went in for 3 Randoms, when I haven't bought any shirts lately (although still checking frequently) so what are the chances of liking them!?! Oh well, couldn't pass up the mystery!
...a number of shirts on teetrade.com

The original photochop by redghia69 was exactly like that... i figured hammy needed a little more something to explain why he was wet, rather then just incontinence..



EDIT: I was going to give him water wings, but ran out of colors!

This is definitely weak sauce. You just won in the same month for a similar design. I don't need two shirts with things in the pocket.

I mean whats next? A tribute to smokers with a minature Joe Camel in the shirt pocket?

Sorry bro. I bought your first shirt cause it was original. Maybe you should try something new like a followup to your other one where the goldfish acutally makes it to the fishbowl or something.

Dear un1ty,
The designer who originally made the pocket fish did not make this. This is a joke entry (and yes, you're correct, it's incredibly weaksauce). It is my hope that you and any other people who might have mistaken it for the Fish designer will not hold this indiscretion against him, as he did not enter this.

Dear patch,
It's obvious that you have no concern for the general rankings, waste of bandwidth, obvious inability to ever win, potential to usurp hotness spots from the worthy, and all around pointlessness of these sorts of entries. Does destroying someone's reputation in a potential consumer/voter's eyes click with you?

Lest i be accused of plagarism, let me present the following:


Patch,

People are asking for that goof entry of your hamster in my pocket (aka redghia69). Since they both were printed designs, it's not like we didn't get mileage out of them already. If you want, I can send you my .AI of the fish pocket with leak, and you can put the hamster in the pocket and submit it as a silly entry.

Game?

-Tek

Tek sent me the pocket file to add the hamster to just a something fun and lighthearted to add to the relative enjoyment of the derbiers,. I fully expect it to be rejected, in fact, never expected it to last past 24 hours. i dont believe it has ever been in the hotness, As voters can vote for as many designs as they wish, it is not stealing votes from any other contenders. I am as appalled by you that it is currently placing as highly as it is, overtaking one of my own serious entries
and sincerely hope it is removed from contention before it ranks any higher, mostly because then i'll have to find a way to split the winnings with Tek as we lord our combined superiority over the entire derby. However, as there has been a number of rejections since this was posted, i fear it might actually remain in contention.

Long reign Cuteness in a Pocket!

Re: Hammy Strikes Back!


Folks,

I am *extremely* proud of my fish design. I really think it was (I say was since it's at 22nd and likely to be reckoned at midnight) one of the most original designs I have seen at woot. I loved it with all my heart (see my postings on the Trompe threads). I would never do anything that insulted that design. Of all that I have done, the fish is the best by far.

Someone posted a mash-up of patch's hamster in my pocket, and people thought it was funny. I thought it was funny. So I asked Patch about it. He was game, and an entry was born. I want everyone to know that I did not think this would demean, lessen, or otherwise slam the contest, Woot, or any of the artists that have slaved on entries for this contest. It was meant as a light-hearted entry, which people would recognize as coming from two different shirts already printed and probably not vote for. If I really believed that the artists or fans of the contest would be offended, I would never have encouraged patch to do this.

I believe this derby has room for the absurd. If we cannot make fun of ourselves occasionally, we're taking ourselves too seriously. I have spent a long time in the Photochop contest, so my sense of humor in those is evident here as well. I apologize to un1ty and anyone else who did not like or appreciate this entry. Anyone who knows me, knows that I don't have a mean bone in me...

Thanks for listening,

-SkekTek

I don't think you meant anything at all "malicious" by it. I see parodies of other shirts here all the time and no one seems to get that upset about it.

I think that, given the sorts of shirts that have historically won and been sold on Shirt.woot, the majority of voters and buyers are not the sort of folks to take themselves "too seriously". There are other places for that. And as for the negative comments regarding lighthearted entries here, we all know what opinions are like.. and everyone has one of those too.. they just usually keep them covered.

Just because people can't read and easily determine that the Pocket FishMan was not Patch's design, doesn't mean he needs to take grief about it. A bit more reading in the general forum for this derby would also show that all involved in the original designs appreciate parody and willingly participated in this fun take-off on past entries. No one is in danger of having their reputations tarnished, at all. What nonsense.

As for the people complaining about wasting bandwidth, submitting entries that have no hope of winning, or potentially destroying someone's reputation in the voters' eyes -- Hello, pot. Meet kettle. Guess what? You're black.

Now now.. no need to pull race into all this..

Thanks for the support parkermc. And seriously folks.. lighten up! i'm sure there are worst wastes of bandwidth in the derbies (wheres the weakly obama/jesus entry?) and this one is certainly more enjoyable. i would hope anyway.... i mean - i could toss in a crucifix, but seeing as how easter is coming up that might be sacrilegious and maybe off topic. But if that what the voters want......

Re: Hammy Strikes Back!


This shirt is awesome and quite hilarious. I voted for it immediately when I saw it. Come on, it's a shirt.woot in-joke! And a Derby in-joke! I think it's absolutely fantastic, and would happily buy it and wear it if it managed to make it into the fog. The people who are bashing it seriously need to take a chill pill and find wherever they left their senses of humor.

I agree. I liked it even better when Hammy showed up in the discussion forum (before it was submitted) sans the fins and air tube, and it just looked like he peed on the shirt.

In fact, Patch, why don't you put it up for sale on your site after the derby is done..?

ZOMG not bandwidth! The hotness is seriously overrated, even if this shirt ever made it into it. And why is this entry unworthy? I think it's just as deserving as any other. It's not pointless - it's funny! And whose reputation is being destroyed (besides yours, of course)?
