Heh!

It can be argued that duct tape comes in a variety of colors and patterns these days, however. GMV, still.

I'm kind of surprised that this didn't get dinged for "similar shirts exist". A quick google image search shows dozens of shirts with this exact slogan.

Thought the same thing. Lots and lots of them. And many for much cheaper than woot would sell 'em for.

I happen to like this one for $6.

I agree that the quote is not original. However there is nothing wrong with a classic saying executed in such a way that many voters seem to enjoy. I have not found any shirts with the same composition as mine.

Depending on the rejectionator's mood, woot usually pings with "similar shirt exists" as they did with allnsmithee's shirt in this competition; like yours, it was a different artistic take on a known phrase. His was in the fog too.

What's bizarre is that while your type set is fine and the slogan is funny, at the end of the day, it's just plain type...plain type of a slogan that already exists on multiple shirts. I'm honestly surprised it wasn't rejected. I wouldn't have even noticed, except that you're in the top 9.

Either way, good luck. Maybe you'll get a print out of it.
