It's barely even a design. It's a pasted in photograph.

Yeah you see a bunny is the younger version of a rabbit, just like child is the younger version of person. As this is an adult rabbit, it is therefore not a bunny. : P

Because it is hard to verify that the photo is your own original (see the Terms and Conditions for entering the derby) and because photos often have gradients and halftones that they cannot print, Woot does not allow photos.

"This is the first shirt I have wanted to buy here in a long time. Please let me know if you get it printed elsewhere. This is another example of Woot rejecting true artistic expression in order to bump up designs that cater to the masses."

I don't know what's funnier, the loophole in using a bunny (sorry, rabbit) or the serious comments to a playful entry.

No, it's really not. Photos aren't allowed as has been mentioned many times. Also, especially with an unaltered photo, it's impossible to separate the image into (at most) six colors without the use of gradients.
And, there's precious little artistic expression involved in pasting a photograph into the Woot shirt template, especially when it's ... questionable ... as to topic.
Finally, if this were allowed, it would almost certainly cater to the masses.

I think you took that comment much more seriously than it was intended.

Missile, you should be awarded $5 for everyone who actually took your entry seriously and commented here as such. ;)

For the record, I thought it was funny.

This is the only good design this entire derby.
Perhaps less originality and more shininess would have saved this gift from god from the Rejectionator, but after this rejection I am so done with Woot.
I will never ever buy from them again. My wife is crying right now because this design will never print now. I can't believe this.

I couldn't agree more!

I can't believe this complete and utter hatred for rabbits. Rabbits may not be as cute as bunnies, but they're darned close!

Maybe woot needs to make like bunnies and grow up to be rabbits. I feel this design is too sophisticated and grown up for this site's feeble audience.

Please sir, I encourage you to try threadless or teefury. Maybe they will appreciate your sophisticated sense of originality!

I suppose if you posted tortoises instead of turtles, old cats instead of kitties, or even puffins instead of penguins they would be treated the same! I'm sick of this age-ism.

Grow up rejectionater, just grow up.

Would you kindly...

Thank you everyone for the comments. I must say I was surprised to see that everyone actually debated this thing. To anyone who's curious, google-image search "rabbit" and click the third one. But, believe it or not, I did actually at least convert it to six colors. I have no idea what gradients/dithering were involved though because I did this in about five minutes. And to the rejectionator, if you're still around, I figured you probably would throw this out somehow, but you did surprise me on the photo rejection, because I've submitted photos (actually my own, in the first cities derby) that didn't get rejected. Just wait 'til you see my next week's entry. Maybe I'll even bother to draw something. : P

Peace,
Lopato

That was a parody.
