Thanks a ton everyone!!! This was quite a fun design to put together. I had no idea that duct tape is used on actual turtles. That little bit of info made me giggle out loud or GOL for you txters.
I want to give a special shout-out to my mom-in-law for giving me the idea to do a turtle design.
Thanks again!!!

My first shirt.woot!

I love this! I can relate to it so much.

Maybe not for home improvement, but I have duct tapes a few pairs of jeans in my time :P

When you are a skater, and you rip your pants.. duct tape is the best temporary solution!

Hmm, does Woot send a confirmation email and note the size? I think I clicked the golden button without double checking the size. It just sent me back to shirt.woot.com after clicking as well, is that normal?

I got an email immediately, but it says nothing of the size choice.

Still have not gotten an email, so I guess I didn't order it. Going to wait 10 minutes I guess and checking again. Thanks for the info.

Go to your account and it will tell you what you have bought. If its not on the list then you will need to order again. Also when you have successfully purchased, they prompt you to view your receipt. That is where I usually print my reciept. Good luck

Is it always listed as soon as you buy it? I've been on woot for two years now and this would be my first purchase.

The first place shirt didn't sell out before morning. This is second place, so it will *probably* take longer, although that is not a guarantee. However, the comments suggest that woot is having some server problems, which means it may take longer to sell out as well.

I think this will sell out, but not before morning. If you DO miss it, note that you can still get it the day after, albeit with a $5 premium attached.

Usually... it has been for me. Also, it shouldn't let you buy again if you've already purchased this particular shirt from your account.

Yes, I believe it gets listed right away. Also, that blank square beside your name will turn a nice yellow when you make your first purchase.

Very cute. Green goes with turtles.

Any bets that this will sell out by 8 AM CDT ?

28 yr old male and I both voted for this design and ordered it!

I didnt think the duct tape X in the lower part was going to make it to the final shirt looking at the design when I voted for it but I think it looks good (at least in cgi form).

This is my first shirt.woot

So...everyone on woot either likes 'cute' or 'gamertype' shirts? I'm confused?

Also, seems a bit girly for me. I'm a teenage mutant ninja turtle fan, not a 'loveable' turtle fan (unless it was from the RL).

First woot! off: May 9th
This day ruined my sleepy time!

Yesterday's derby winner was neither cute nor gamer, unless the gaming reference was extremely obscure (which would render it irrelevant anyway).

I would buy this if it didn't have the X at the bottom. Good design overall though.

Judging from your sig, all I can say is this:
We get it. You have different taste in shirts than the people that voted on this one. Move along then.

Nice shirt though. The X at the bottom ruins it for me, sadly =(.

So, I'm sitting here thinking of getting this shirt for me until I read on several posts that it's cute. Definitely a girl shirt/design. In for one (for the wife).

Congrats, designer!

Cute design Beefcoat! Congratulations on another win! My daughter wore her 'Love of Money" shirt yesterday. This is equally as cute!

I love this shirt. I snatched it up the second I saw it. I really thought it would come in first place. Thanks for a great start to my weekend.

The X at the bottom definitely ruins it for me, too. It would have been so much better if it was on the back... Oh, well.

This post sold me. I was sitting here thinking about how much I love the design, but would I really actually wear it, and then I realized I would love to seeit on my kid. So, soon my 4 year old will be sporting a Small turtle shirt. Congrats to the designer!

My ex kept his Subaru running for years using duct tape and fishing line. That stuff binds to anything (but leaves a nasty residue). Next time, the turtle should look into using gaff tape.

Congratulations to beefcoat!

Carpe shirtem!

you are a very diserning (sp) buyer. Kudos to you.

Naturally, woot is addictive after the first purchase, and you'll be up yelling for bags of poop and feeding the kids over microwaved lean cuisnes during woot offs, but that is part of the experience. Embrace it, do not fight it

Don't be sexist. Broads hate that.

Congrats on the win Beefcoat! In for 2, this is my 3rd design by you (Love of Money and got Know When to Fold in a random). I'm a 34 year old male and I love the design, but I really ordered to get one for my turtle loving 4 year old nephew. I hesitate on the cute designs for myself, but Dragonly Love got compliments when I wore it the first time.

It's just to bad Woot doesn't have kids sizes, but my sister said if a WS is too small he can wear it as a nightshirt. I might be in for more if his older brother and sister fight him for it and they need their own.
