Exactly--Trick or Treat and Octospelled were so close in the race that even a few votes could have changed which one came in third.

Both Woot and the people who vote in the derbies are not under your control. You either need to accept this or walk away. Please stop trying to ruin others experiences. You may find your life is much happier not worrying so much about other people looking dumb or purchasing ugly shirts.

I feel exactly the same about it, but would like to add that it's total BS that this took out Trick or Treat. Who cares if it was seasonal or not, it was times 10 a better shirt than this piece of CARP!! Those of you who voted for this were either stupid or 12 years-old.

So either give up or give up. Great options.

To be fair... there's a lovely selection of shirts from last week you can still pick up on the reckoning list I suggest the ones near the bottom of the list. Then you can vote in the future for designs that are worthy of a print.

This is the best shirt that woot has ever had! Stop crying about not getting your disposable novelty shirts. You already got zombies, wear that trick-or-treating and let the people with a little taste have a shirt for once.

Congratulation's! You deserved it!

Oh, don't get me wrong, they're all neat shirts in one way or the other, I just specifically wanted a Halloween-themed shirt because I wanted to buy a few and link the shirt through a Halloween feature on the site I work for, which is the only reason I signed up. It's not that I want a cool shirt, I wanted that specific shirt, not anything else. Sorry.

You have no taste - don't be surprised when people look at you funny when you're wearing this one!

You're advocating a dictatorship, albeit a benevolent one. You must realize this is exactly the opposite of the democratic nature of woot.

Can you imagine what a mess real businesses would be if customers got the ultimate say in what prints with no overseeing by the corporate honchos?

Business is not a democracy. Unless you want to sell utter bollocks.

You're right. Your options are really give up, give up, or troll. Thanks for choosing the latter, but...

do you even know what it means to troll on a message board? the person you're accusing of doing so is one of the best contributors to the site - both in their postings and their shirts.

relax, internet stud. it's just an opinion on a t-shirt.

I actually love octopi, and am on a huge octopi kick right now, so the past week has been great. I really don't see why some people get so horribly offended just because a shirt isn't their style. No hope for tolerence in our futures I see!

Not a shirt for me...clever use of the theme of the Derby, but its just not nice to look at...

personally, I'm not offended by any means. disappointed that the better shirt didn't get printed, considering I was planning on buying multiple copies? yes.....but definitely not offended.

I don't know, I see drugs as more of a population control tactic.

YES! God yes. I love this shirt, and have promptly purchased one.

Wow what do you know, a shirt I can wear like, more than one month out of the year. As opposed to Trick or Treat.

And its a shirt that Woot has any chance of actually selling after Halloween.
