I announced to my family last week that I NEED NO MORE T-SHIRTS.

Then I saw this.

Memorized this entire poem in 5th grade which was 45 years ago. Still recite it from time to time. Must have the shirt as a cheat sheet now that I'm old and my memory is fading.

I looked, I love. I'm going to have the poem in my head all night. Thank you : )

Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me...... unless those words make up a sword..... and you stab me with the sword.... that would hurt.

I wonder if they'll fix it before printing. Will pass until a fix is confirmed.

Likewise. I would love to own this shirt, but my inner-perfectionist would never allow me to rest without a correction to the typo.

In other words, Woot, for the love of all us Jaberwock-nerds, please fix the mistake before printing? Pretty please? With sugar on top? And a cherry for good measure?

I did a dramatic interpretation of this poem at 12 for my childrens' community theater group. I did a damn impressive job. Someone please buy this for me. Still broke, and you guys keep toying with my emotions....

I did a little research and it does appear that the word should be "wabe" instead of "wade".

I've notified staff and we should have an answer sometime later this morning.

Thanks to all for spotting the wong wade...I mean..wrong wabe...I mean..you know...

Ugggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

Welp. Sent off the correct file. I have nothing to say for myself other than I'm dumb.

The stanza repeats itself at the end even, and I got it right there.

I apologize to lovers of the poem whom I have wounded. And to Woot for me being an idjit.

I've also alerted them to the typo, hopefully they'll chime in sometime later this morning and let us know. Thanks for the shirt though, it's pretty amazing! :D

EDIT: FROM STAFF: As soon as an artful minded monkey arrives in the office it will be addressed and fixed.

Poor monkey! I mean, bad enough you're slapping a shipping label on it, but you're sending it off to the vet for a snipping?

For maximum fun, realize that Jabberwocky is close to 'common meter' and thus can be sung to a large number of tunes (it has an extra syllable every other line you have to work in). It works very nicely with Greensleeves, William Tell Overture, and with a bit of motification - Love Shack ("He galumphed back! He galumphed back, baby...")

"Vorpal sword?" In my email?

Beside the misspelling which I understand will be corrected, but I have to see it with my own eyes, of course, this being one of the more colorful "poems" in the English language is depressingly grey

So I will wait patiently, until Woot does a more colorful version of a frumious Bandersnatch, or perhaps a Jubjub bird. And then I will think fondly of my 7th grade English teacher, who used Jaberwockish to teach parts of speech.

I like the rationalization. Well done.

I was determined not to buy any more t shirts until I saw this one. A Vorpal sword! Yeah! If the pen is sharper than than sword, then a vorpal sword penned with words has got to be the sharpest of all. :-)

hahaha That was the first thing I noticed when magnifying. I wish they could correct that but it's still an awesome shirt.

Thank you for mentioning this. I didn't think about Spell Check (I NEVER think about it) but how very sad to go to all that trouble to create a BEAUTIFUL design and then screw it up with a misspell.
Sigh.

I'll be buying this shirt as soon as it's fixed. Love it, but seems silly to buy a shirt that we all know to be wrong. This shouldn't be too hard to fix...

Same here - although maybe only 35 years ago for me. Will purchase if we can verify the typo will be fixed and then, "O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!"

I'm glad everyone caught this and that staff responded so quickly. Trusting that the change will be made before this goes to print, I'm clicking that button now!

My grampa taught me this poem when I was pretty young. He's been gone now for 8 years, but I can still remember him telling it; the way his eyes lit up with "snicker snack!" I think it's the only poem I now know by memory.
I'm getting pretty nostalgic over here, and I'm clicking the buy it button right after the "post" button below. Thanks Woot, you've now made my day!

Don't Panic.
