"Put the Leaf in the Flag" is probably one of my favorite songs evar. GMV! I'm guessing you're going for 42 votes because that's how many times they sing the chorus.

you put the leaf in the flag, la da dee doh doo,
the leaf in the flag, something something snow
milk in a bag, da da baby seals
leaf in the flag, oh canada...

Re: maple leaf


I like this shirt so much. too bad its color scheme and "look" is so close to another shirt i already own... Cool Breeze. I'm sure you've heard of the shirt... longest selling shirt, i think.

Verse 2

I put the leaf in the flag, you put the leaf in the flag
Everyone everywhere put the leaf in the flag
If the flag doesn't have a leaf it's just a rag
leaf in the flag, oh canada

Thanks Artulo and 2thFairy. Late start this week, but I wanted to get something entered. Makes it more fun to have at least one 'horse' in the derby. This week the horse is a pig!

I will never understand woot's rejections based on poor illustration. They reject your flags, because they don't think you did a good enough job on the maple leaf. They rejected my flying gentleman, because apparently he looked like a water fowl. All this, yet they leave a periodic table that isn't numbered or colored like a periodic table. You can never predict what they will do, so best of luck in your future drawings that woot determines it looks good enough. GMV.

I like the look... it would be a great winter shirt, but I don't think it really fits the theme. I don't think it screams Canada for many people

My only minor gripe is the numbering trend... why didn't you flip the goose and caribou to continue the swapping sides numbering?
GMV regardless!



Wow, thanks for your vote and support with the image graphic! I hadn't even thought about the even/odd numberings until you mentioned it! I just put them in order on height and what I considered a good arrangement. The only other thing was the colors are somewhat related to relative danger to people, should you happen to run into one.

Thanks! I have found some of the rejections to be caprecious. The first time it happened to me I was upset. But hey, I figure, that's part of the sport of it. At least now I know why my leafs on the flags weren't acceptable. I'll have to wait for an American theme and submit it as an American maple leaf

Hahaha! You both crack me up... they already did the "America" theme; it was the citizenship derby. At least citizenship to wooters = America.

The great thing about Woot is that you can actually vote for both my shirt and Spirit Island and hope for both to win. They may not make it, but you can at least support your favorities.



Absolutely, man... I did vote for yours and I hope it stays in the fog, but I'm not gonna try to squeeze it into my sig since it's already fogged and sure to continue getting attention. Good luck!

Hmm, just went in for 3 Randoms, when I haven't bought any shirts lately (although still checking frequently) so what are the chances of liking them!?! Oh well, couldn't pass up the mystery!

Oh, that's great with the colors! I hadn't picked up on it, but so very useful, um, should I... um, encounter any of... those... animals. lolol

But seriously, I do like it even more now!

Back when I was a kid my family and I would occasioanlly head up to Canada to visit my mother's relatives. We would usually go in the early fall when the leaves were all turning and the loons and Canadian gese were all in flight... headed south I guess. My mom's not with us anymore but I still remember the way she loved the changing colors of the leaves and the sight of those birds in flight. I wanted to pay homage to that with this shirt; I call it Lake Ontario Sunset. Please let me know if you like it. Thanks!



that story is really sweet. and your shirt is beautiful.

I own an "asphalt" grey shirt, rather than the usual heather, and it's pretty nice.

All the winning shirts could be identified with their song without the "Inspired by" Title. They didn't require explaining. This one, as simple as it is, does. And if I missed the point of the shirt, I'm sure others did too.



It had to do with people being unable to react to a design, but needing simplicity. There's nothing about this one that DOESN'T identify with the song in question... it's a literal interpretation thereof. Everyone has heard the song, because it's in the ranks of joke items such as "Escape (The Pina Colada Song)" and "Dont Worry Be Happy". The people voting on it weren't Nilsson fans, and probably still don't know who wrote and sang the song. Many may only have voted because it was from Reservoir Dogs. Others may know it solely from the more recent Coke commercials. There is identification, but nothing else, in the graphic. So really, it was two food items with an arrow. Rationalize it as you will, there's little else to hold this shirt in esteem.

Generally that is called stealing. I don't even know what shirt it is you like, since you neglected to prove knowledge of the quote functions here, but even at its worst, the designer deserves any profit to be made from it.

I don't really see the similarity. Aside from a moose and a hockey stick.

It's not the same. Yes, a moose playing hockey, but it's not the same. And I find it rude that you put a 'buy it now' in my thread. I drew this from scratch and that would be like telling anyone who does a moose, or refers to hockey or does a leaf, that it's been done before and needs to be removed. My design is original and I have the sketch to prove it.

I REALLY am not trying to get this rejected, but for what it's worth: This shirt is an anthropomorphic moose playing hockey. The other shirt is an anthropomorphic moose playing hockey. This shirt was not copied from other shirt, but do feature the same content. Was it inspired by the other shirt? Probably not, but obviously impossible to prove. Some "consistency" of rejections is purely a pipe dream, I realize, but there was a shirt rejected in this derby that wasn't too different of a situation. Cheese's curling stone & croosbrooms was rejected for being too similar to an entry from Adder for a previous derby. It was obviously designed from scratch, the other shirt isn't available for purchase, but the similarities of the concept were enough for the rejection. Again, I'm just offering my ramblings, not saying the decision should go one way or another.

I hope not, because this is a cute shirt by a creative designer. Of course, every shirt in each derby is gonna have someone start whining about it. Kind of like a right of passage!

Re: Wild animals of Canada



I don't think the bear is wrong, in fact I think it's about right. But if that's a normal sized caribou, then that's the biggest goose on the planet. Something's definitely wrong there. I think everything else is right in relation to the goose, but the caribou (and the bear to match) should be MUCH bigger.

I understand what you are trying to say, Blu. But again, if that was the case, then every stereotypical reference in this derby would be trashed. Add the fact that the moose in that link is copyright clip art that someone is trying to use to make a shirt for profit, and it's not I who should be removed, but rather hers from cafepress.com. Cafepress has much the same rules that woot has in using artwork that is not yours for profit.
