BUT ITS FUN!!!!

Woot asked us derbies upon derbies ago to police ourselves. I sincerely hope they just take away our toys since we can't use them properly.

ETA: Derby 27...

Hey, voters: before you vote for a design, ask yourself how faithful to the theme it is. As always, we reserve the right to reject anything we want, but this will be a particularly tricky Derby to moderate. The responsible voter is our first line of defense against Derby scofflaws, and we know we can trust you to be responsible. You're not going to let us down, are you? After we said such nice things about you?

Glad to see a tired old internet meme 'joke entry' is taking up a valuable space in 'the hotness'. I would be so upset if I had a design in this derby.

You have no idea how sad it makes me too. I really want to buy the woot shirts, and support the artists who use this as an outlet, but week after week something wins that an adult couldn't possibly get away with wearing. And I refuse to be one of thise 'cutsey' adults that think they look soooooo cool and young wearing a shirt that looks like it belongs on a kid.

Even derek disapproves, and he's just so nice. I think that should tell you something. I mean, come on guys, let's not encourage the people who make a mockery of something many of us take seriously (albeit in a lighthearted way) and enjoy participating in. Fun or not, it blatantly disregards all the rules of derby entries. We don't encourage children who cheat on tests in a funny way, thus we shouldn't encourage the children here on woot.

Not sure about that one... I do recal getting partial credit on a wrong answer once in school simply because the answer was so creative and rediculous that the teacher found it humerous! Can't remember for the life of me what that Q/A was now... Although, I see your point...

Re: Rickroll'd


I want to explain my motivation for this design.

I opted to print this on a white shirt, because much like Rick Astley himself, white is a clean cut color. I don't mean that to sound racist, but white is a color that good guys wear. Think of the worlds greatest villains : Saddam Hussein, Unabomber, Magneto, none of them wore white. I think that says something.

The reason I decided to have Rick leaning on his right hand is to let everyone know that he's conservative, but as you can tell from the denim shirt he's wearing, he also likes to party.

As for the stare, I want the people who view this shirt to think that Rick is staring into their souls, so that one day they may look deeper into themselves. Rick Astley wants everyone to know just how special they are, and that can only be realized by looking deep into your soul.

In short, Rick Astley is love.

I'm going to go spend my $1000 right now, I'm buying everyone Full House Season 2 on DVD !!!

VOTE FOR DEREK !!!

The image of Rick Astley with "Rejected" splayed across his face is awesome. Someone save it and upload it with the appropriate tags, so that when I google Rick Astley, that's what I'll see.

I find it funny that you tried to rickroll us in this thread.

and even funnier that I fell for it- not because I didnt expect it, but because I had to make sure.
