The only thing that could make me love it more would be to have the image lower, where Charlie's zig zag was.

Once i read the title to the thumbnail, i already knew it was the funniest entry in the derby, before i even saw the shirt in it's entirety. Love it!

Awesome design.

Were you at all tempted to use brown ink and place this at waist height for extra Charlie Brownyness? :p

Re: teacher talks funny


I want to start by saying that I love the shirt. However, this along with a couple other shirts seem like they are dangerously close to violating copyright. Shirt's that have been rejected for copyright violation seem arbitrarily chosen. Does anyone know what the Woot standard is? I wouldn't classify this shirt as parody.

This is parody because in Peanuts the adult characters are never shown, and showing one playing the trombone (referencing the unintelligible noise they make in the cartoon) is clearly self-mockery. Plus they are just dark outlines of the characters and not detailed drawings. On Rglee's "Night School" Batman's recognizable outline is shown in a completely absurd scene, sitting in a school desk next to the Moon, the Aurora, a giant moth, a star.. do you see the parody here?

I'm guessing that the rejected entry you are upset about is Catbus right? That one has no parody, it's just a nearly identical drawing of a well known Japanese character doing what it always does, ferrying children around. The fact that he's sad instead of grinning isn't really parody enough.

I pretty much agree with you on the other designs mentioned. However, whether this shirt is parody to me is still iffy. I feel like you need to significantly change either the context or stylization in order to be classified as parody. The shirt just resembles the source material too closely. I really do like the shirt, I just don't think it can printed.

Man, you're on a roll, bro! Every week you come up with the most amazing interpretations for the derby. You are among a small handful of really gifted artists on this site.

You also hit me where I live with this design. I read Peanuts from its first strip to its last. It was one of the unchanging things in the Universe from my earliest memories. It's a real treat to see it's still in the memories of so many people.

If it prints, I'll get a half-dozen for the many members of my family who grew up with Good Ol' Charlie Brown.

I love it..now thrilled about the shirt color but it is funny enough to be worth it.

The only problem I have with it is that the noise used for adults isn't just a straight trombone. The teacher would need to be covering the bell with a plunger head. I guess that would be hard to capture in silhouette though, huh? Chalk it up to artistic license I suppose.

Even a blind squirrel is right twice a day.

I didn't get it at first, but after watching the video, it makes perfect sense.

This being in the Fog shows us a lot about the demographics here at Woot

I wish I had a flying monkey to give you, because I knew someone would mention the lack of a mute on it. I just thought someone would have mentioned it sooner! ;)

From what I understand it's not just a plunger, it's a plunger over a pixie mute. However, I don't think that damages the joke simply because most people don't know that, and just think it's a trombone.

p.s. I want this shirt. :-)

This would've been better if the screen was on the bottom third of the shirt. Would've looked like Charlie Browns shirt and caused a double take. Beyond that much love on the color and theme
