YES! FTW!!!

I refuse to answer on the grounds that I don't know the answer.

I like the first version better with a little more understated humor, but this version will probably go over better with a lot of the voters. Nice job either way.

Yeah, I might be overthinking/overworking it. We'll see!

yeah, i've never had cow-face, but I've had pig-face. And it is delicious.

Also, I hear brains are creamy. Like meatpudding, I would wager.

I like it Robert but you may wanna resub. Your showing the print right now outside the print area for Woot. It's going past and under sleeve seams :S

Wow, that's a new one. Haven't heard of that. I almost included tongue...

Eating faces seems so personal. When I ate meat, I tended toward cold cuts and things like that -- I didn't want to know the poor fella's name or his last expression for sure!

You're right. Completely unintentional though. Wherever Woot puts it is fine. They don't usually reject for an outside-print-area when it's just a matter of size.

Do people eat "cowtail" too???

Lulz.
Cow @$$ and head cheese are pretty much the two best parts.

What a great design TR! At the very least, you'll need to give yourself a Best Loser award!

Yes, beef cheeks are wonderful. Otherwise, the cud would fall out of the side of their face.

Wouldn't it be great to just refer to your t-shirt instead of that chart on the wall?

I'd much rather have it printed...

My problem with this shirt is that the idea is really old. There's nothing original here.

I looked around to see if someone had done a similar shirt and couldn't find one. Could you be more specific on what you've seen before?

I don't think that I've ever seen a shirt with a cow on it broken down like this. But, for example, there is a pig shirt in this derby (done not nearly as well). I don't think that either of you stole the other's idea, but it's just that the idea is old. There are plenty of "break-down" designs, shirts and otherwise, that use the same idea but perhaps a different subject.

I won't claim it's terribly original but in looking around I was surprised there weren't MORE t-shirts playing with this idea.

The fact that there are break-down charts of cuts of beef out there is what makes this T-shirt work so well: as parody.
And every derby has at least one idea that two people come up with. Some are tired, but others times have come -- like this one.

@ThatRobert: I love this. I love how clever it is. I love that you took the suggestion of pointing to the brains and made it your own. I even love that it's on brown.
+1 ... and I don't do that very often.

Am I the only one that senses some Borat inspiration here?

Doesn't this kind of prove my point?

By the way, you asked me earlier about shirts that were similar since I said the idea was tired. A fair request, to be sure. While this shirt isn't exactly like yours, it's the same idea. Again, not saying you stole it, but the idea is just exhausted. And the fact that people have voted it into the fog is sad.

And someone posted this in one of the two other shirts that are the exact same idea (that's three total!). Again, different subject but exact same idea:

I like it, I only wish you had used real cuts of meet. Many of them are close but I don't see why would wouldn't just make all of them accurate *shrug* still funny and I know people that would definitely wear it as it is

this is a nice color coded version of the most common cute but I'm sure you could find your own

Funny! I've never seen that but it's a similar repetitive type joke.

Yeah I did the pig one. I saw thatrobert's post in the prederby thread. I was in progress with working on mine when I saw basically his completed entry. I sent him a message because I did happen to have another entry that I submitted, and I did not want to infringe on his voting with I was worried was going to be construed as a copy. He responded right away to go ahead and submit mine figuring that there may be a few entries with the concept.

I'm not much of an artist or designer at all. So, you can say that it isn't very original, but when the idea hit me, I wasn't influenced by other shirt designs, posters, comics, etc. I just thought it would be funny to do. Even when I started looking for how to actually create a pig diagram for their cuts of meat, I only found meat packing diagrams and not much in the way of tshirt fodder.

I mean seriously, it is not like I or thatrobert retreaded the same cartoonish squirrel or anime/meme blank faced furry creature ;-)

No. Yes.

If I'm still in the fog on Wednesday, I'll send Woot a fixed print file.

I think eating tongue is pretty common -- my wife has had tongue and she's not a terribly adventurous carnivore.

Reading that again, that sounds kinda weird. Hopefully, I won't be quoted out of context!

Bad time to point out that the 'oyster' bits are a little further back? That bit that hangs down is the male-bit, but not the 'oyster' bit.
