I'm digging the look, being nice and simple, but the symmetry it's working for me.

Yep, its me. Though, I must admit, I was not at all inspired this week. This was just thrown together to have something.

I wish it were a bit larger on the shirt comp, but besides that I like it. I'd wear this!

And it was said by Yogi Berra, so that would make it a... right.

Reminded me of the Quake logo...don't know if that was intentional or not.

Unintentional. Actually, I was thinking that something about the shape reminded me of some Star Trek crest or something.

I'm astonished at the support this simple shirt has gotten! Thanks to all who have voted. I hope we can keep getting more votes and maybe get into position for an honorable mention! Thanks!

Wow. I was just thinking of that and was going to post the pic. And here it is. Thanks!

The guys at the new SONIC drive-in told me to have a supersonic day. And I did!

Yeah. It's definitely a quote, sir.

Yogi Berra said this.

This IS a quote. Take two seconds to look it up before you reject me!!! It is extremely unfair and unprofessional.

I definitely recognize that Yogi Berra quote. Maybe because the entire quote wasn't illustrated, like a guy "taking" the fork, or something? That's the only thing I can think of, because the quote in the comp image is definitely a real quote.

Wow, I can't believe the rejector didn't know this quote. Unless tgentry's right about it not showing anyone taking the fork.

As a side tidbit, I'm told that its origins lie in the way Yogi would give directions to his house. Apparently there was a fork in the road, but it didn't matter which way you went at the fork. Thus the: "When you come to a fork in the road, take it."

Thanks for the support to all those who support my cause. In spite of my two unfair rejections (Steampunk and this one), I will keep coming back like a bad Rocky movie.

Nothing against this shirt (it's a sharp design), but "fork in the road" is not a quotation, and that's all that this shirt is really illustrating.

You can't just randomly pull part of a quotation out of context. If I illustrated "imagination" and put the Einstein quote "imagination is more important than knowledge" in my comp, would that really fit the theme? I think not...

If there were some "taking" going on in the illustration, I could see it working for the quote in the comp, but as is, I think this was a just rejection on Woot's part.

Sorry.
