For me it was 7th grade in "Study Skills" class. That was um... (pulls out his abacus)... 37 years ago.

I don't remember all of it, but certainly most.

Thanks for showing the corrected t-shirt on the sales page. It reassured me that it would be correct when I get it. Now, if you could correct the blurb to say "real words" rather than "real worlds" my little English teacher heart would be so happy.

People in Wyoming are not amused!

Not one sold, no no no no!
Not one sold, yeah yeah yeah yeah!

hahahaha Jaberwocky must have skipped this state, or the whole state was furious with the typo?

Whichever, it's just one giant white block in the middle of all the grey.

the picture shows the image off to the left of center, the features states "Design Placement: Centered"

could someone clarify where the image is placed? i really don't need a sword down the middle of my chest pointing to my "man sword".

I saw this too. Looks like there's a hole in the map, or the data for Wyoming has gone missing.

it appears that this has been rectified; the placement is now listed as "right."

no subconscious indication now.

Can I have one of the original incorrectly spelled shirts please? It's all nonsense anyway, and if a small number of shirts with a typo were printed, they will have a certain scarcity value...

If the diagram is correct, the design is definitely on the left. Unless we're looking at the back of the shirt. Or if you're from the Southern hemisphere. Or if you're situs inversus. Or all three (but not just two).

we're all situs inversus up in here.

i'll inquire about getting the placement confirmed.

UPDATE: it's the right. placement is from the perspective looking AT the design, not based on the wearer's perspective.

i got all confused with that myself. the earlier placement blunder + the typo have really made me question everything i thought i knew about the world.

I floogle "Alice in Wonderland"! Why, oh why, must this shirt be only available in gray?

I love Alice in Wonderland and this poem in particular, although I regrettably admit I have not memorized this poem yet. I'll fix that someday. Mostly I love this design seeing as how my name is boldly printed there in black and white right at the tip of the sword. I can usually only get personalized stuff at Christmas...

Firstly, let it be known that I think this shirt is freaking awesome.

/rant mode on
Secondly, I must say that I still hate woot's redesign, especially the shirts page, cause I can't ever get enough of a close up on the design. I'm sure the artists put a lot of effort into the intricacies of these designs and it's a shame that I can't see them half the time. It's especially frustrating when there's small text like in this shirt.

(And yes, I know, there's a zoom-in magnifying glass, but it barely does anything...)

If you listen carefully, Carroll says, "fruminous" rather than "frumious." I wonder which was intended?

:X

*cry*

Well. I'll stop my burbling. I'm glad Woot was able to cleave order from my tulgey woods of shame.

As for putting the design on gray... I felt it was the best color for legibility for a design with both black and white (and gold too).

Thanks to everyone who has commented or picked one up. Have a frabjous day~

If I am ever in Wyoming I will be on the look out for it. You have to tell me if you move though because I'm going to feel really silly asking everyone for leads if it's not even there anymore.

Never thought of that! Oh, so much more fun will be Jabberwocky from now, with tunes added to its potentcy! Thanks for the tip! There's lots of common-meter tunes that will fit.....

RobinBobcat wrote: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...")
