Greed will drive people (candy corns) to do horrible things for ultimate power! THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE!

Yes, this is only 6 colors (the "7th" color of the sword's handle is actually the shirt background.

Do you really? It's not really overly greed-based, and seriously, is anthropomorphic candy corn an idea one shirt company needs to print twice?

I would also wear this. I haven't yet made a woot purchase, haven't really seen anything I like. This is could be my first. More people need to vote.

This shirt is off the hook.
And if AdderXYZ doesn't like it, it totally gets my vote anyways.

Re: There can be only one


Thanks for the compliments. I had the idea this weekend, but didn't have a chance to implement it until yesterday afternoon (was at a dance workshop/exchange all weekend, which meant dancing from 8 pm to 4 am, classes from 11 am to 6 pm, and having to fit in food and sleep. (I had 9 hours of sleep total from the time I took off on the airplane Friday until I landed at 8:50 AM Monday morning).

I fear this was submitted to late to make it.. but I would love to be proven wrong on that! VOTE!

Why would Highlander Corn want to behead all the other immortal 'corns? For their POWER, that's why!! This design is the essense of greed to me. Awesome, well done!

it's becoming overtly obvious that Joel (or whoever does the rejections) doesn't read the "justify the existence of your shirt" part of submissions. It explained how it had to with greed, as was explained by several posters above...

I'm beginning to wonder why I keep trying this thing... the rejections get really discouraging.

I think that you should be happy that you can now enter this in a later derby where it will be more appropriate (and have better submission time) without making changes.

You can do that? I thought resubs were killed immediately.

Not if it's been rejected as off-topic before. As long as it meets the submission guidelines, no problem.

So rejection means you can resub.... but if it wasn't rejected and didn't win, you can't resub, correct?

Not without serious reworking, correct.

I did not know there were two Adders, but I take comfort in knowing the other one agrees that this shirt is not only off topic, but pretty much ludicrous in light of woot printing an anthropomorphic candy corn shirt once before. Congrats, other Adder. Sorry this guy already doesn't like you.

1) Please explain how "Greed for Power" is off the topic of "Greed" ?

2) Where is there a rule that says that they can't print the same sort of thing twice? How many tree shirts have been printed? What about birds? What about Ravens?
