well... still not gonna buy it but it is way better than the "super power" shirt... i honestly cant see how anyone can say that the "winning" shirt was better with a straight face. this is clearly a much better shirt, however it was still not the best.. personally, i wanted the "shark-repellent" shirt to win but oh well..

I am so glad this one won. It has personality. Super power looked like it was from some cheap vendor on the sidewalk, and USB man was just stupid. If you wear a Derby-winning shirt, people that see it should get some indication of what the contest theme was. If I saw a USB shirt, I'd think to myself, "Wow, that loser really loves USB"

There's my 2 cents, anyway. Maybe it's been said in the Derby blog, but whatever.

sorry didnt find this til now.

Well, it seems we sort of have two winners to Derby #3. But this time, you only get one shirt. Here's the problem: the "power" symbol in the entry submitted by jr88ps69 is evidently the property of the International Electrotechnical Commission, and may only be commercially used with their permission. We've been advised not to produce and sell this t-shirt, so we're not going to. (We've also decided that, in our view, it also violates our own Derby rules: "We determine that the design contains elements created and/or owned by someone other than the designer or Woot".)

But even though the refs ruled against it, we are going to honor the will of the (Woot) people by proclaiming it the winner. And we'll pay jr88ps69 the $200 prize money. Presenting what we hope will be the only Derby "winner" that we don't produce and sell:

In cases like this, where the Derby winner cannot fulfill its duties, the crown immediately passes to the second-place finisher. So, at midnight tonight, come back to Shirt.Woot if you want to buy jamescho84's "Reality Isn't For Everyone" (yes, jamescho84 will also receive the prize money):

We're climbing into our asbestos onesies, because we know some people will be upset about this. But the law is the law, rules are rules, and the rule of law is the law of rules, or something. Congratulations, jr88ps69 and jamescho84. And gods of fortune, if you're listening: can we just have a nice easy Derby next time? Please? Let us know if we need to sacrifice a first-born male goat or whatever.

Hey Woot, how about you offer whoever posted that "Frog Rainmaker" shirt a few bucks or a free shirt for his design:



Hey whoever posted "Frog Rainmaker", how about you accept Woot's offer?

Spoken by the guy with no purchases.

Big deal if you don't like it. Evidently someone liked it or it wouldn't have received any votes.

Some of you really need to keep track of news and some of the blog info.

Additionally, physics do not matter. The shirt is a cartoon, where reality takes it's own form. Don't over analyze.

Thank you Cho for your design. You submitted your original within minutes of mine and I knew that I'd lose out to you. At least I can say that I did lose out to the appropriate design, I started to worry for a bit. It you're wondering, yes, I voted for you and bought the shirt.

If you are reading or posting on these forums, then you are, by necessity, a dork. Most, but NOT all of the designs are dorky, currently the least dorky designs are:

Chimpanzee Robusto - you'd have to be a really, really big dork to think that a smoking chimp is dorky

Nobody's Perfect - 3 1/2 stars is good enough for everyone, both dorks and non-dorks alike

Threat Level: Doctorow - nobody even knows what this shirt is all about unless they read it, but only dorks read what's printed on other people's shirts, so only another dork would know that you're a dork; everyone else thinks that you're some kind of patriot

Had to get this one. Almost didn't look here since I thought 'super power' had won out by one friggen vote. Mayhaps they should hide the vote totals to prevent people from trying to force a tie?

WOOT ! You missed a sale!
I am the 3X T-Shirt Super Shopper, and my comic book loving husband would have gladly worn this shirt. Now I must fly off and look for Super Sized Super T-shirts elsewhere on the web. Maybe Al Gore will invent a shopping site for me.

I would wear some of the shirts that have been on shirt.woot.com and I have kissed a girl, therefore you are WRONG.

Yes, alcohol was involved, but still.
