This has a lot of Bil Watterson's 'Calvin and Hobbes' style. Very well done.

It's a joke. You know, funny, ha ha. Doesn't matter it was rejected anyway. I've seen a shirt with Jesus fighting Santa on this website get 533 votes, but rave JC gets rejected...

That's fine with me, everyone has a different sense of humor and lifestyle, not everyone does the whole religion thing. It's just a bit annoying to look back and see all kinds of shirts done for derbies with Jesus on them that weren't rejected. And as I said, some with hundreds of votes. Oh well.

I was not offended. But I agree with you, if you're going to reject one JC parody then you need to reject them all.

I would potentially argue that the Jesus/Santa one is different in that that is a legitimate argument considered in a lot of Christian communities, and the shirt reflected it. I, for one, have a few friends who weren't allowed to believe in Santa as children.

I can't remember the other Jesus shirts in question, though.

The shirt you're referencing was from back in 2008, derby #66 (http://shirt.woot.com/derby/entry/23884/jesus-vs-santa). We are on derby #292. Been a lotta time in there.
Honestly, I'm surprised that you're surprised this got rejected. It's a fairly long standing policy and cited for numerous rejections in the past. The only times I've seen them pass were old derbies or when the rejectionator didn't bother making a pass late in the derby. And the Noah's Ark controversy, which ended up being that it wasn't Jesus or something so it passed.

The funny thing about all of this is that the design could have easily easily passed muster as just a generic bronze age dude in sandals enjoying a modern party.
Going "Hey look! It's JC" killed it. Hell, if he had called him "Brian" it would have received geek votes for the Monty Python ref.

move along
