Learn your audience. Woot has a long standing 'no potty humor' rule in place, as well as tending to avoid making fun of groups of people for something like an accent.

My speech is not parsing. I am speaking in ellipsis.

Re: Outsourced Genie


I got a chuckle out of this. Unfortunately, this wouldn't really fly with a new shirt. A little controversial with the racial joke (even though no particular race is indicated) and the potty humor.

I think the artwork is pretty good though. A nice comic style. Much better than the 1995 style clip art that I see half the submissions created in.

So wrong, yet so right. I'd buy one and wear it at home much to the dismay of my freinds and family.

I live in wyoming where foreigners, change, and pretty much anything besides livestock and guns are generally hated

I think its funny and you have a nice style, but it could be offensive to some folks. I come from a middle eastern family and am not offended, but everyone is different lol.

I think you could get this same concept across with different imagery, like maybe an item expressing a word that means one thing here, but something totally different in another country. Idk...just a thought!

Hmmm...I guess if I think about it it, I suppose it might be taken as racist. It wasn't intended at all. But I guess it'll get rejected because of this...*headbang*...haha oh well...live and learn...Thanks for your comment!

Thanks for your insight. The process takes a long time for me to draw something good, and I can't think of anything like what you said, so I guess I have learned my lesson.

I have nothing against any race. I didn't realize that this could be a bit insensitive. Apologies. I guess it'll be rejected anyway...

That is a good suggestion! But even if I did have time to change it, I wonder if it would still be considered racism...but thanks for your suggestion. I might use it in the future.

Okay well I guess I expected this rejection *stab in my heart* ...but at the same time i wish the rejectionator said something more about why. Like was it the piss or was it considered racist?

No or Nope means it's something offensive, in your case it's both racial humor and the pee, neither will fly on Woot.

You'll notice a couple other entries were rejected with a NO this week, the maxi pad one and the "Man's wish" with the naked lady silhouette.

Just stick to PG-13 or be REALLY subtle or clever. This is neither!

Ok thanks! I have some ideas for the next derby...I think they are subtle and clever...but we'll see. My aim is to not get rejected.
