Out of the hundreds of adorable and clever cat jokes they have floating around out there, this is certainly not one of the better ones.

Lolcats are horrible examples of everything wrong with internet "culture." Nonjokes repeated ad infinitum, terrible spelling and grammar being praised and respected, let alone accepted, and any joe schmo having a shot at having his unfunny crap seen by millions.



*whining* Stap making fun of lolcats! Its not fair! *cry*

/irony.

The internet makes you stupid. Thats how the net started out; posting ANY kind of crap made you a ton of money. This shirt *IS* the internet, no matter how much you and I hate it.

I had a stupid page about fortune cookies in 1997, made thousands in ad revenue and OneAndOnly.com partnerships before the .com crash. If I got in earlier by six months I would be retired by now, like this total jerkface in this MMO I know.

This IS the internet. Might Is Right. You just see how MANY people are stupid, rather than seeing a few at a time in real life.

“I’m In Ur Festival of Lights Kindln Ur Menorah”
That would have been funnier on the shirt.

First lolcat shirt - I'm almost tempted to buy although I'd never wear it. This cat doesn't make me laugh like some of the others.

Out of the many clever Chanukah T-shirts they could have made, this is also certainly not one of the better ones. As an orthodox jew, I would have bought a woot chanukah t-shirt if had anything but a lolcat on it.

the first Woot-cat-style t-shirt! Never thought I'd finally see the day! Altho I don't believe that's a Jewish cat.



Actually, I think the cat is Reform.

First time I bought a t-shirt for both me AND DH. If it doesn't arrive in time to wear for one of the nights of Chanukah/Hanukkah/Hannukah/etc., I wear it Xmas Eve. Or maybe for Kwanzaa.

Just goes to show - one person's worst woot is the woot someone else has been waiting for.

Woot better ask for a presidential pardon or be prepared for extreme punishment. LOLcat = Teddy Bear.

I don't think it's so bad as this. I mean, the design is lackluster, and it's certainly unoriginal and carries all of the baggage that comes with internet memes, but it's not without its merits. Certainly, a significant portion of Woot!'s market will find it palatable, and so it's not a bad move from a business perspective, especially since running a different T-shirt every day means Woot! can and should explore a creative base. There are a fair number of designs from all sorts of schools of design and thought, and throwing a silly one like this in occasionally probably helps their reputation as business that's open to all ideas, rather than hurting them.

But aside from all of that, this is indicative of just how far the meme has come, and how much longer it has to be en vogue. Soon, it will be everywhere outside of the internet, and not long after that, it will be dead and buried. Just like anything else in life, when your Mom starts sending wearing her LOLcat T-shirt around the house, then it's time to find something else to be cool.

Wow, I really hope Woot does some more lolcats. I always post the pics during Woot Offs. But, there's no way I could pull this one off. Oh well, next lolcat shirt that comes along.... I will buy!

ok, you talked me into it. It will make a great Purim gift (wait, it's not coming SmartPost. It shouldn't take that long). I'm in...but if I don't get the wine, oh boy will I whine!

It was a good laugh though.

As a Jew, I'm gonna be honest: this shirt is amazing. It doesn't matter that Woot has sunk as low as LOLCats, this shirt still represents. However, part of the hilariousness is the atrocious grammar, and my OCD just can't handle it.

Yes! Finally a Hanukkah present that my brother will enjoy and that I can get a good laugh out of. I'm not too much into LOLcats...but at least I got his Hanukkah present covered. And now I can go to sleep and he'll stop bugging me.


Happy Hanukkah to those that celebrate! I just got finished baking my last batch of cookies for my party tomorrow night. =)

Happy Holiday season to the rest of ya'll..

Love shirt, will not buy. Again, not female friendly, IMHO. *sigh* Thumbs up to the lolcat though.

I'm still waiting for Woot to reconsider printing A Matched Pair from the last derby. Please?

I got a Big Orphaned Cetacea once.

Wow, it's like woot is trying to compete with itself in an ever ongoing effort to make the worst shirt ever possible. So apparently dreidel is some jewish thing? Combined with lolcates.
Do you get a funny shirt? No, you get a what seems a badly photoshopped cat on a horrible color.

I'm a seminarian, so I'm definitely in for one. Wish I had it in time for the biblical Hebrew final. The lolcat looks like mine ... the anti-Semite kitty that defiled my Hebrew bible. I have to burn it now, but at least I'll have a TEESHURT.

Over 75 wootilicious purchases so far, including: 1 unmutilated Be the Monkey Woot T-shirt, 12 screaming monkeys and 2 leakfrogs. Ribbit.

badly photoshopped cat = Funny shirt.

You don't have the matching sense of humor for this shirt. That's okay. Just quit complaining so dang much. It's not the end of the world.

Odd place to put it, but whatever sinks your battleship.

But I guess it's better than gerbils. Wait... it does have a cat... cats eat gerbils... coincidence? I think not.

And let it be known... dreidel shirt... good... cat shirt... um... fine... I guess.

But Engrish??? Un-good shirt grammar is un-good. Very double plus ungood. Tripple plus ungood. *Double* Sideways 8 ungood (and difficult to do BTW. Ungood. Ungood. Ungood. Un-purchased. Eh? Goes for L33t speak-ification too it does. Hmmm.

All Hail Eris and pass the slack.

1984 was a pretty good year indeed... but I was already old then.
