Nice shot. Looks like a scene from the exorcist.

As promised, I kept track of the woot shirts I saw people wearing at TotalCon, a board game/RPG convention here in Massachusetts. It wasn't quite as much of a shirt-woot-rich environment as I expected, but I did see at least one every day!

Thursday 2/23/12
I wore: Do Not Pass Go
I saw: He'll Probably Be Okay - which will now go down in my personal history as The First Woot Shirt I Ever Saw Someone Other Than Myself Wearing

Friday 2/24/12
I wore: In the Library With the Wrench - I got a lot of comments on this one; people seemed to really dig it. One guy even said "Hey, you're wearing a woot shirt!" He was wearing a Settlers of Catan shirt at the time, but said that he has several woot shirts and his favorite is "The Binge".
I saw: Click or Treat - I had another conversation about woot shirts with the guy who was wearing it, too.

Saturday 2/25/12
I wore: They Call Me... Tim - I had run out of board-game-related shirts by this point, but I figured this would serve just as well to show my geek cred.
I saw: The Binge - Finally! In spite of this being the most popular woot shirt, I've never seen anyone wearing it before. I spotted it on a guy at the hotel's breakfast buffet, which I thought was kind of apropos. And it wasn't the same person who told me on Friday that it was his favorite woot shirt, so I now know firsthand that at least two people own it.
Life Choices - This one really stands out in person! I spotted it from pretty far away, so I didn't get a chance to say anything to the woman who was wearing it.

Also on Saturday, I made it to the semi-finals of the regional qualifiers for the national Settlers of Catan tournament! That was way better than I was expecting to do, and even though I knew I'd get crushed in the semi-finals (and did), it was still really exciting! Err... what was that I said about geek cred? *gigglesnorts, pushes glasses up nose*

Sunday:
I saw: Odd Bear Out - I happened to spot this in the hallway, worn by the guy who was sporting "Click or Treat" on Friday. He was a big guy, too - more proof that burly men can totally pull off woot shirts with adorable animals on them!

Sadly, my boyfriend got a really bad case of food poisoning on Saturday night, so we didn't end up doing anything at the con on Sunday (although a friend who was there with us did win the Stone Age tournament they were holding!). I don't remember what shirt I wore, but I don't think I bothered dipping into my shirt.woot stash just to go back and forth from the hotel room to the car. I might have missed out on a woot shirt or two that day, but it was cool to spot as many as I did over the rest of the weekend!

BTW, for anyone who lives in southern New England (and not necessarily even that close - I know people came from Maine and Albany, and probably further away too) and enjoys board games or RPGs, I highly recommend TotalCon! It's relatively cheap and TONS of fun.

Spotted Super Effective at the VancouFur convention over the weekend... (I wore Warpigs, The Cheese is a Liederkranz and Clockwork Crow - all three were commented on positively throughout the weekend.)

I saw the Binge about 3 months ago before I even knew about shirt woot. It was so funny!

i work in retail so i see a lot of random people in a days time. my funniest woot shirt story does not involve a woot shirt at all. one night a couple of guys came through and i said to one of them "i own that shirt, too" and he said "it's a woot shirt" and i had to burst his bubble. it was actually one from threadless called 'time fades'.

i have seen two woot shirts in my store, although i did not strike up any woot related conversations with their wearers. quite some time ago i saw 'revenge of the damsels' and one day last week a couple of one of my coworkers friends came in to visit her and one of them was wearing 'lucky park'.

Saw only 2 Woot shirts on my fortnight in the Bay area. Both royal blue, but neither was "The Binge".

2 weeks ago went out for sushi lunch in Sunnyvale and saw a guy wearing "Fresh Ideas". Also spotted "Misfortune" on the rack at a Goodwill in Campbell this past Tuesday.

I saw one or two in public. One time a Fry's Electronics employee even said to me "Nice Woot shirt" and then had the pleasure to explain to an older lady what Woot is. Also I saw them from time to time on DudeLikeHella and KatersOneSeven on YouTube...

I make YouTube videos: youtube.com/lufthansa7478

I also have shirts to trade, so PM me... I dare you to!

No problem - those shirts rule! If I saw another board game-themed print from you and Walmazan, I might even have to give in and buy it on Anvil! (I know you tried with "Ukraine is Strong", so I totally understand if you guys are burned out on the concept.)

Once again, I'm posting this belatedly, but I have another sighting. I was at a They Might Be Giants/Jonathan Coulton show in Providence, RI last Friday and spotted someone wearing Minor Modifications.

I was wearing Ironic Bunny, which is one of my favorites. Although, I would probably refer to half of the woot shirts I own as "my favorites", so that doesn't narrow it down that much!

Nice!

That's so wierd... check out the episode The Luminous Fish Effect, from the point when Leonard is walking up the stairs with Sheldon's mother and see what you think of it. He's wearing a jacket with it but I totally thought it was that shirt.

I saw a guy wearing The Cheese is a Liederkranz behind me in line at Lowes this weekend. I would have said something but I felt bad for holding up the line buying a washing machine.

Earlier this week, at an author event in Harvard Square, I spotted someone wearing The Birthplace of Inspiration. The print on that shirt looks great in person... seeing it in real life made me regret my decision not to get it for my bf, which I had thought about for a while before it was reckoned.

After a full year of wooting in which I never saw a single woot shirt in the wild, I now feel like I'm seeing them everywhere. Okay, 3 discrete locations does not technically add up to "everywhere", but still... the woot shirts seem to be coming out of the woodwork around me this month!

Warmer weather means we will be seeing more shirts in the wild. Leastways that's my guess.

I saw That Is The Question at the Whole Foods in Winston-Salem yesterday. My husband was wearing a woot shirt, but had it covered up by a sweatshirt, so it wasn't visible.

i saw my first wild woot this weekend! at academy in san antonio, i saw a guy wearing In the Library with the Wrench, one of my absolute all time favorite shirts (and one that i missed out on because i came to woot too late...sad face). i said something to him about it, and we talked about woot for like 10 minutes. it was awesome. it felt like we were part of some secret club or something.

we are the wooters...world beware.

and i didn't see any other woot shirts there, but i wore my Aquired Taste to a gun show on saturday and got a lot of comments.

I (think I) saw a Caffeine Powerup today. I live in a rural area and never saw one here, but on spring break in San Antonio: ding! I also happened to be wearing Epic Fail at the time. I'll probably will see more as I'm heading to Seattle in July. (If it doesn't rain the entire time.)

I just found this thread. I didn't even know it existed. I posted this on the shirts thread, but I'll post it here:

Just in case no one else noticed...uniCONE has been on the news! It started with this kid's thank you letter to a meteorologist that went viral. Here's the story:

Local Students thank you note goes viral

THEN...the kid was interviewed on KVUE and he wore this shirt! Check it out!

Author of best thank you note ever!

As soon as I saw the kid in the shirt, I thought "huh..that looks like a woot! shirt". So I came here to make sure it was it, and it was!

My house is built out of shirt bricks because I am so shirt rich from my shirt volmodding!" and he was like all "wow, that's so awesome I should be your friend" and then I was all "uh, hahaha no not really, for serious I get nothing, why am I so bad at jokes?" and then I like totally took my bag o' beans and scurried the hells away because why am I allowed out in public?

This isn't exactly a "sighting" but I thought it fit here:

Weekend before last I was out on base at Ft. Bragg, NC for a music/atheist festival called Rock Beyond Belief. I wore Schrodinger's Equation, and 7 different people stopped me and told me that they owned the shirt as well. Considering the festival had about 5-6000 attendees, 8 people who owned the same Woot shirt seems statistically significant.
