Re: Regular Gonzales


Seed, love the art. But Speedy had a slow, drunken friend you could have played on, with Speedy somehow referenced to make the disparity clear. Maybe just a faded silouette and some motion lines in halftones (background). We get the joke here, but on a shirt? Not so much. Love ya, tho! Just not lovin' this particular sub.

I was going to put my submission with the idea of Speedy but dropped it. Why didn't I think of this!!?

Even if people don't get it's supposed to be "Regular Gonzalez" they will get that it's a reference toward Speedy...I think it stands alone fine, and I'd buy it.

You're referring to "Slowpoke Rodriguez." He's kind of built up a pretty horrible reputation over the years, as the character was built on the old "lazy and drunk Mexican" stereotypes.

He's actually one of the main reasons Speedy Gonzales isn't shown much nowadays. Given Woot's cultural sensitivity, I think the artist's approach was best.

Granted, Slowpoke probably wouldn't be the best choice. But this still just looks like a mouse in a hat. Just sayin' - for me, it doesn't stand on its own all that well.

Honestly, I don't think anyone is going to get this without the title. It's well done, but the humor is pretty much lost short of putting up a sign saying "Regular Gonzalez"

Re: Regular Gonzales


I'd love to have this one. I think the reference is rather easy to catch.

There are only so many mice dressed like this.


Nothing follows.

  • Congratulations on winning a Best Loser Award!
  • This is not SPAM.
  • Winning a BLA does NOT mean this shirt won't print -- I'm hoping it does.
  • Your one and only gift is this crappy little badge in your shirt thread. Enjoy.
  • And it came to me then that every plan is a tiny prayer to father time.
