I think the acid test is "Would I send my child to kindergarten in this shirt?".

I don't think the Kindergarden test is wholy appropriate, with things like F This and Your Idea's Suck printing, but I do think this one is close to the line. Will probably come down to how many Tattles it gets.

I've had a rough couple of days and really needed the laugh when I saw this! Thank-you!

It's funny, but I already bought this shirt once.


Nothing follows.

I would think GOOSE and CHICKEN are sufficently different. They're not even as close as DUCK and GOOSE.

Profane? No, but Woot treads lightly when it comes to sex and drugs (but thankfully not rock and roll).

I was surprised when F This was printed. Made me laugh, but at the same time, definitely not a shirt I want to find in the random grab bag of children's shirts

Nothing directly profane, no. However, I think that between the smoking, the implied sex and the vulgar-based-on-the-context-of-the-shirt title, I don't know if it will fly.

That too, but it will take longer and probably be more painful. Though the rejectionator can be pretty painful if you're fogged going into Wednesday.

How? It's the same joke. And I've seen several different shirt designs along this line. I'm not saying you didn't come up with it on your own but it's not a new idea.

And yeah, implied sex is borderline. Woot has let stuff worse than this slide so we'll see.

The goose that laid the golden egg is technically a different joke than which came first: the chicken or the egg.

That said, similar shirts exist and appropriateness make for an apt rejection.

Am I the only one that sees that this shirt got rejected because it screams incest? I admit I kind of laughed but in a "this is sick and I can't laugh at this in front of others" sort of way...

Really, incest? It's more of a double entendre. But eggs are gross anyway, do you know what an egg is, like really? Here's a hint, it's not a baby chicken.

Yeah, you're right about the joke but the title of the entry is "What came first?"

Well, for something similar, think about this when you next order "Oyako Don" from your favourite Japanese Restaurant.

Okako Don is a chicken and egg rice dish, and "Oya-ko" means "Mother-child". Mmm... mowfful of incest! Yum!
