Have you ever seen the shirts like this at the department stores, they all have the same 5yr old drawing/writing look and they are classic...this shirt looks no different then any one of the same type that you can buy at JC Penny for $20...



Seriously, you don't understand? Thanks, woot. Four days of text shirts. BLEH

the style of the drawing on this t-shirt reminds me of "toothpaste for dinner". anyone else see the resemblance?

Agreed Like the shirt but could not explain this to my 3 little ones.

I got that one for my brother. He likes randomly crazy shirts.

He'll love this one, and he doesn't have a lot of red shirts anyway. I thought it was funny, in for one.

I really, really like this shirt.

Only 2 things are holding me back from buying it.
1 it will freak out my kids
2 after this week's slogan derby, I never want to see a shirt with text on it ever again

That said, I'm being pulled toward the buy it now button

I have to agree that the design looks to similar to a child's drawing, not to mention it's slightly disturbing message. I hope that shirt.woot goes in a more graphical-design direction vs. the "emo-cartoon" direction of other sites like threadless. That site used to be good but is now just a bunch of silly "look at me" slogans and childish cartoons.

I would much prefer to line the pockets of legitimate artists who can create something unique and beautiful on a shirt!

I know woot pushes the envelope with odd humor (I proudly wear my "the cake is a liar" t-shirt), but this is pretty sick. Nothing like walking around town with animated suicide across your chest. Might want to throttle back a little bit guys.

Nah, do whatever is funny or interesting... the Angry Day shirt is one of the best. My nephew could have drawn it, but creating humor is the hard part. And sometimes the 'rough' artwork adds something. That said, today's woot is terrible per my post above.

For those who support this shirt: Yes, for $10 an american apparel deal is great compared to other shirts you buy locally in shops. But(I will speak for myself ) shop at woot to not find a "decent deal". I try to shop so it looks like they bought a $40 shirt for $10.

Get my drift?

No hard feelings, just saying what i think.

awesome. one for me, one for the wife.

to the people who do not like this shirt because they think it glorifies suicide, give me a break.

can you honestly tell me you have never laughed at when something bad happens? Like monty python's holy grail scene with the black knight, or even someone getting hit in the nards? guess what, death and pain can be funny when put in the proper context. the fact that it looks like a child's drawing gives that context. now, if the picture were a life like depiction of someone cutting their head off with the same caption, that might not be as funny.



Wife: Do you really need all this junk?
Me: At least I don't ask you if it makes me look fat.

Terrible design, lacks art, his friend creativity, and talent. The shirt would sell better with nothing printed on it.

Stop child labor. This artist pays small children to do his work. Think of the kids.
Seriously... this shirt could have been drawn by any 3rd grade kid.
Not to mention how unfunny suicide is! PG-13? Cmon woot, have some consistent standards.

I think the shirt is fine. Yeah, it's childlike, but what difference does that really make? The great thing about shirt.woot is that there is a nice variety of shirts. I kind of like it when I don't feel compelled to buy a shirt, it saves me ten bucks.

The funny thing is the first sucker: Livin4Him06. Please tell me I'm not the only one amused by that.

Suicide? How many folks have you heard of cutting their head off with a hacksaw? This is clearly not meant to be taken literally.

If you don't like the T-shirt, that's cool. But IMHO sometimes you have to laugh at the serious stuff to keep from crying.

Wow. Uptight much, guys (and gals)?

This is my 2nd woot purchase. I think it's hilarious. If you don't, then don't buy it. No need to bash the artist, the site, and everything else you can drag into the equation.

From what I've seen, shirt.woot tries to do a little bit of everything. You don't like text shirts, I don't like shirts that look like someone tired to yank a piece off the wall of the MOMA and call it clothing. To each his own, kudos to woot for striking a balance.

Yes, my 7 year old could draw this, but it still made me laugh! I ordered one even though I personally HATE red. Two color options on every shirt would be GREAT!

Thanks, honey! But I know you're just trying to make up for not getting me that Gettysburg Address shirt I want so BAD.

However, I *am* EXCITED ABOUT THIS SHIRT! Now I'll have the perfect thing to wear to my next family reunion!

All of the negative comments are especially humorous now that the 'I Want One' button is bouncing. Apparently, this will sell out very soon no matter how many people rail against it.

Congrats on the printing.

Such passionate responses to Andre's dark humour. I for one like Andre very much (he's on my blogroll). Can't afford to buy one today...ordinarily I could but we just moved and had beaucoup expenses.... :-(

Calling this design dark, or really even humourous, is a pretty big stretch considering you could probably find this shirt at you're friendly, neighbourhood, retail-ogre,
Wal-Mart.

I guess some people think it's funny and want to buy one, but, personally, I don't come to woot to buy text shirts, no matter how simplistic the drawing is.
