Derby #37: Greed

DANGER! cupcake

I really like this design, but it's not on one of our shirt colors.

Rejected because: I really like this design, but it's not on one of our shirt colors.

I love the execution of this but I'm afraid it might not be showing greed but indulgence.

yeah I love this, but it might not follow the theme, also I think most designs are too big on the shirts, it'd be better if it were a little smaller

It always amazes me how some designers can create such spectacular-yet-subtle 3D effects with so few colours. Nice job.

I LOVE THIS! I wish I'd wooted before so I could vote! I find this VERY wearable, although I am also female.

But really, who wouldn't be comfortable professing their love for (and complicated relationship with) cupcakes?

This doesn't show greed at all. It looks like something a really obese person might wear to remind them to stay off the sweets. I hope it gets rejected.

Can I just say apart from cupcakes being delicious...off topic...I absolutely LOVE that this is on a bright happy color. I am SICK of gray and brown.

I REALLY REALLY like the shirt and design (whatstheirname was right, the colors are awesome!), but this is more for gluttony, not greed.

No one ever said woot voters knew what they were doing. Really, most people say the opposite. Any uproar to the contrary is against "mean-ness" and comes from being unable to break from the status quo.

The derby is a lot like the introduction to the opposites in You Can't Do That On Television, except the Opposites went by a certain set of rules. The derby is just wacky.

What color shirt is this supposed to be? Royal??? Sure looks like no color Woot offers.

To make this gluttony, there would have to be someone eating it. I see it working for greed as someone wants to keep the cupcake so they put it on a trap so no one else will touch it.

Great design though, definitely my favorite!

That isn't greed either. What if it is the only cupcake they have, and they are using it as bait in hopes of catching an animal for more food to stay alive. Greed is essentially "Wanting more than what someone needs". Which this shirt in no way shows. I wish it would get rejected already, woot sure is wacky with what gets rejected and what doesn't.

Re: DANGER! cupcake


no resub on a color woot actually does offer??

that is awfully sad.

and I think it's very on topic. no one <i>needs</i> cupcakes. and to try and get a cupcake that has the ability to physically harm you, is greedy.

but really, who cares? it's a great tshirt, and that's what woot is all about.
