Nixon was a rat. Really Jan. 12, 1913 makes him one.

I remember exactly where I was and what I was doing when I heard Groucho had died--it still hits me. I loved this guy.

I doubt there are enough voters to make this a contender, but I'm so happy to see there are others with my unusual attachment and affection.

Re: 1983 - Thriller Music Video



This design is intended to illustrate the most recognizable, signature dance move from the best selling, most popular album and music video in history- First broadcast on MTV December 2, 1983: Michael Jackson's Thriller. The album "Thriller", which was released in November of 1982, had no corresponding video associated with it until December of '83, so the song's signature dance moves were unknown in '82.

Re: 1983 - Thriller Music Video



I'm aware that someone else is using the same song in their entry. This is my first shirt.woot derby entry and it took me a while to create the design, being beaten to the punch. However both are quite different and his is actually the wrong year as you can infer from my write-up

You thriller types need to get in agreement with which year the thriller dance takes place in

This doesn't look like it is on a tshirt template. It may be due to some kind of transfer problem when this pic was loaded. Can you resubmit this so it is clearer, and we can see the template?

but the album was released in 1982. since it was #1 for 3 years... maybe it could work for 82, 83, and 84!

Re: 1979



Hi there, fellow Wooter and shirt designer.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but this shirt will be rejected because it breaks a Woot rule for this derby: No text.

Please redesign your shirt, if possible, to fix this so that you can still take part in the derby. Good luck to you!

Anybody that sees the grey thing on this shirt knows 100% that they're looking at a Gameboy. I don't really see how this is parody.

Re: 1981



When it comes to derbies, non-wooters (who will be the ones seeing the shirt) aren't the ones who know the derby theme, so I'm always looking for derby submissions that are obvious enough that somebody else would get it, or random enough that it's just straight-up funny.
This is the latter.

I see two potential problems with this shirt.

1. The "porcelain princess" is right at the edge of the shirt template. Woot can't print just anywhere on the shirt. On the template they provide, there is a bounding box for the printable area. The box is actually more of a guideline than an actual rule, but from what I've read, they still expect you to stay about an inch away from any seams, etc. So yours is just too close to the edge.

2. The pills might make it not-PG-13 in Woot's book.

I do like the design though.

This looks so awesome. I want it to win, but at the same time it might be better for my bank account if it doesn't. Fable I like this shirt too much I fear I will spend money I don't have yet again! What's a poor (literally) wooter to do!

Re: 1986: The Legend Was Born


Wow, when my bf opened up the website to look at the derby I saw this shirt and I got so excited. I am obsessed with LoZ and would totally buy this. I like this because it's not entirely obvious that it is Legend of Zelda. There are so many shirts of LoZ that have the Triforce, Link, or any obvious LoZ symbols/crests on it. I think this shirt could still refer to other types of fantasy RPGs and shouldn't be rejected.

Now all I need is an awesome Oni Link picture to hang up in my room and I will be set!

I <3 LoZ :D

It also looks to me like there are too many colours. I mean, from the overlay in the center you have (at least) two different yellows and (at least) two different reds. Each row also looks to be a different shade of grey.
