I love the design, just not the shirt color...

Some people have admitted to voting for shirts just because they are still printing on AA. Silly reasoning/unfair to people with possibly better designs (not meaning this design, which is cute, but just in general)? Sure. Also, completely illogical. Why don't they just go buy AA blanks for half the price? Oh right. They're making a 'statement.'

Regardless, I think this concept is funny, since I am pretty sure this is what my orange cat would do if he could read.

The button says, "I'd Want One." When I click the button that says, "I'd Want One," it means that I'd want one - and that means it's a color that's likely to print on AA in women's sizes. I don't go around making a big deal out of the fact that my Derby votes are in accordance with the "I'd Want One" request of Derby voting, but I think it's utterly absurd to say that it's "silly reasoning" to vote for a shirt because one would buy it; I don't vote "I'd Want One" unless I'm willing to follow through and put my money where my vote is. What I think is silly - IMHO - is clicking "I'd Want One" when one would never actually want one.

But my job emphasizes the importance of communication and sender/receiver being on the same page, so perhaps I am "silly" to interpret woot's desire to know which shirts they should print based on an intention to make money by selling shirts as a desire to know which shirts they should print in order to make money by selling shirts.

I love this shirt, I want it, and the color is a little refreshing. AA is ok, but I only vote for shirts I will actually buy as well.

My problem is I keep reading this Nom-ination, and it tastes bitter, even though they're NOTHING alike...

I didn't know you could get AA blanks anywhere for $5. (Can I buy the design for half the price somewhere else, too?)

I pay $4.73, and that's only case pricing. They used to be cheaper.
