Once you get your shirt, why don't you post a pic?

This one's a pass...very um, November-y...

Edit: I just looked at it closer after the chicken comment, and I see now that it's sort of a rooster, and not sort of a turkey as I thought it was. I guess I'm sort of the turkey, heh...

My chickens would laugh at me if they saw me wearing this...

As a descendant of a long line of chickens, this shirt offends me.

I live in a Native American-heavy area, and while I don't find it offensive, I find the description kind of depressing. I also live near way too many chicken plants, so double the bummer. Or maybe I'm just tired and need to go to bed, but I think I'd like it more if it weren't for the chicken/Native American combo.

It's well executed, but not for me.

Oh man! This is the best shirt I've seen in a while and it's defiantly worthy of my second woot purchase.

How IS this offensive?! It's a chicken wearing a head dress. Why is that offensive? Nobody is calling them poultry or something. Everybody needs to lighten up and stop peeing their pants at every little thing that could be considered not "P.C."

that is by far the most patently offensive t-shirt woot has ever printed. i've laughed off a lot of the so-called "racism" on shirts here, but this is far beyond the bounds of common sense, let alone good taste.

terrible. just terrible.

I don't understand. If disney makes a movie where a rooster puts on a head dress is that offensive? if Wall-E had found a head dress in the rubble and worn it around for a day, would it have been offensive? Why is this offensive? It implies absolutely nothing about native Americans or their culture. For this to be racist you would have to read so deep into it that you skew the imagery to fit your bogus claim.

Why do you have to be considered a Native American to find this shirt offensive?

I personally do not have an indigenous native background and I find this shirt to be tasteless, the description obnoxious, and the fact the people are actually purchasing it repulsive.

Very disappointing woot.

Wow. I mean wow. I AM Native American. I have most of the time found woot to be somewhat offensive, but this one takes the cake. I referred people to this site. Now I will get verbally "scalped" tomorrow. I live right in the middle of an Native American reservation. This is the first time I ever logged on and felt this uncomfortable. No more referrals.

I'd like to hear from the Zombies who were offended by the t-shirt showing them riding Segways.

Indian headdress on chicken--same as putting a cop hat on that angry luau pig. Next time you're on the rez, walk up to the biggest guy you see and call him a big chicken.

How is this offensive??!? How ISN'T this offensive?? The head dress is a sacred object of a culture that has been exploited and displaced for over half a millenium. So by putting it on a chicken, screen printed on a t-shirt, the man is once again defiling their culture. Not to mention the fact that it may or may not be implying Native Americans are "chicken," i.e. lacking in bravery. Bad form, Woot. But then again, they ARE based in Texas...

Yes, those things you discussed would be offensive.

a) Not all Native American cultures use headdresses, the ones that do would most likely not have one as outlandish as this, therefore this image is perpetuating a false image of Indigenous people in this country

b) If you're discussing a native culture that does use headdresses, this item is a SACRED OBJECT. Putting something as spiritual as a headdress on a chicken is just as offensive as if you had a picture of a monkey hanging from a cross to put it into terms for you Christian kids.

Yes! that is what I'm talking about! I don't see this as offensive at all. If it were a break dancing chicken would it be offensive to black people? If it were a chicken in a gi, would it be offensive to Asian people? Someone explain this to me.

I'm liking it. It's much more interesting than a lot of the stuff that's on shirt.woot, not to mention it's a nice illustration.

also.. it's a chicken (turkey? rooster?), possibly the least offensive animal i know of aside from kiwis (unless you're into racial slurs). I bet a lot of Native American people would look at this and maybe even like it. I could see how some could find it offensive though. but as far as all things offensive... this is about as mild as it gets for me. hate me for it if you want... but i think some people just like to find something to be offended by. meh.

I just happen to be Pawnee. I found this shirt to be really offensive, and the story even more. What is even more pathetic is the people who are defending this--and they arent even Native and just being a descendant does not count.

Very brief history lesson: The Pawnee have always fought alongside the U.S. even having their own Scouting/Infantry platoon, honors all veterans, and celebrates all Military holidays with Ceremonial Dances.

Where is the humor? Just watch, the intelligent buyers will speak with their $$$ this will be one of the lowest selling shirts ever. Woot, please dont do anything like this again.

(The following is a joke. It is a very bad joke. If I knew how to write a good joke, it would be one, but it isn't. Live with it.)

Gosh! It's so drab! Couldn't you come up with at least one bright color?

(Actually, I can't remember a woot-shirt that was so colorful where the colors worked together this nicely. I might have to buy one of these, even though I have to travel through five or so American Indian reservations [ literally! ] to get to Santa Fe from here. But they are Pueblo Indians, not Plains, so I guess they won't shoot me or anything...)
