Hello. Although the colors are different here - the "Superman" logo is quite iconic and I believe a copyright issue.

Both the Superman logo and the X are text, which is not allowed this week.

You really need to change the man peeing as well, since woot is usually very strict about bathroom jokes and staying PG-13.

I don't know if the x counts as text. It's not so much a letter as it is an indicator in this context. The Superman logo probably won't fly though.

I think the "man peeing" is a guy using a metal detector ... which I don't think starts with the letter S. Of course, I don't think California and bowling start with the letter S, either.
So we've got a copyright issue, a text issue and an off-topic issue.

This is actually my first entry into any derby, and since making this shirt, the song has been stuck in my head constantly. Enjoy!

I like the concept itself - simultaneously clever and horrifically, groan-inducingly cheesy, and think it's fairly well-done. However, I'm not sure it will evade rejection, for reasons others have pointed out: copyright, text, and Woot's "decency" standards.

Nonetheless, I see some potential. Please don't get discouraged, this place can always use an injection of fresh creativity, so please do keep trying and submitting.

I agree - don't let the rejectionator discourage you. Learn and come back for more. This was a truly thoughtful and clever design, and well executed. Look forward to more!

where the hell do you come from? this shirt is a mary poppins reference to supercalifragilistickexpialidocious. the words spell it out in pictures. there is no text, the superman logo is a symbol, thus the S doesn't count and the X is a symbol as in X marks the spot, not the letter X. additionally the last symbol is a finger over some lips saying shush! this shirt is brilliant and you and most other people here including woot are idiots for not getting it. the peeing thing was probably a dumb idea though.

I think most people, including woot, got it. And as they pointed out, the text and the peeing got it rejected. And yes, the S in the Superman logo counts as text, and even if it didn't it would get rejected for copyright issues.

Clever rebus though.

Maybe a silhouette of a superhero in the iconic "flying" pose (arm straight out in front, you know the one) and a pea-pod?

Love the concept, would love to see a tweaked re-sub.
