Great design.

Also, I was hoping this shirt would bring the political nutjobs out in droves. One would do well to remember that the basic tenant of the country you love so much is to protect free speech, such as the right to walk around sporting something ridiculous like Communist Dinosaurs.

I was gonna post that....

Anyways, as a circuit bender and general techie geek, I was really hoping the Resistance would win. I was hoping to wear that shirt to one of my shows. Alas, the voters of this community have let me down.

I wouldn't have worn this shirt myself, but it's going to make a great V-day gift for the boyfriend.

This is my all time favorite Woot shirt!

I got one for me for Darwin day and I'm sending one to my son at school. Too bad he won't get it by V day.

Also got one for a friend who traveled with me in the USSR in the 80's

Very cool shirt.

Long time Wooter. Never got a Bunch of Clipping Not one.

Is it wrong for me as a Marxist to buy this shirt?

All the people bitchin about communism being evil by nature..go and read some Marx and we can talk..
One thing: soviet russia, or even China had/have nothing to do with communism..they were/are both state-capitalistic societies..
Just think about how many capitalistic dictatorships we got..

Picked one up for the girlfriend as a Valentine's Day side-gift, as she has the weirdest obsession with Russia. Will go perfect under her red Soviet track jacket.

Congrats to geekfactor! I would've been bummed to see this shirt just miss out (again).

This is prolly late but, I think they are refuring to comradtines day a very well known day in russia where one takes old shoes boils them with codliver oil and vodka, straining out any impurities by running them thru a sock that was darned twice. Serving that with potatoes and onions, for your wife to be. For on the "day of your brothers" so she will know she's special. ;).

For an extra perspective: my mother's family came over to America from the Soviet Union. I grew up listening to them discussing their friends' and their own time spent in gulags and under the communist regime. They lost large parts of their families and friends to the gulags, so they have as much reason as any of you (if not more so) to hate Communism. Their unanimous conclusions? That Soviet communism was not communism, but fascism disguised as communism. And you know what else? They're going to find this tshirt hilarious.



On that note, I made a comment earlier about my Russian neighbors and this shirt. The lady in the apartment next to mine, who came here from Moldova, just bought a t-shirt with the hammer and sickle on it. I think she is going to find this shirt funny as well.

Come now, you know that's not true. If you were buying it just for you it would just hang on the wall like a poster so you could look at it. You wear t-shirts because of what they say to others. After all, you can't see it when you wear it, but you know everyone else can. That's why we all check this site everyday, so that we can be the one wearing the shirt no one else has. But, if we were wearing them just for ourselves we would be wearing them as undershirts now wouldn't we. I'm not really that concerned with whether average joe "likes" what I'm wearing or not, but I don't want to have to "explain" what I wear to everyone.

An opinion should be the result of thought, not a substitute for it.

Man... if I thought about having to explain every shirt I own, I'd never wear anything with a print. I wear a damn shirt with octopus tentacles that come from the collar. I don't think people are going to ask me why I wear it. I wear it because I freakin' love it.

Frankly, I hope that shirt scares people away and they're too weirded out to ask me why I wear it. Only people that love it have asked as to where they could get it.

I feel the same about MJ's print. It's well drawn and unusual. You aren't going to see it elsewhere. But I wear a shirt for me. I don't give a koi as to what people think when I wear a shirt... so long as I enjoy it, I wear it.

Because it's kind of an ugly shirt that appeals to a niche market?

Sorry, I seem to have touched a nerve. But don't you think octopus tentacles are a little more self explanatory than communist dinosaurs? I still maintain that, for the most part, a design speaks to the wearer because of what it says to the viewer. (i.e. "Frankly, I hope that shirt scares people away and they're too weirded out to ask me why I wear it.") Almost everyday someone will comment "Great design, just wouldn't wear it" or "Like the design, but not on a shirt".
I wear the free shirt I got for participating in the (fill in the blank) fund raiser when I am at home cleaning out the garage or doing yard work, because I would never so risk ruining one of my woot shirts that I am going to wear in public.
How 'bout we agree to disagree, Jaden? I enjoy reading your comments everyday and my wife simply adores her "Nessie", even if she constantly has to explain it. (It's been called everything from a turtle to a puppy by the "non-woot" public.)

An opinion should be the result of thought, not a substitute for it.

This is probably the exact reason.

A lot more people know what a dinosaur and a communist is than know anything about electrical engineering. And you know what? that's the way the world should be.

This was my first woot.

I don't understand why people are debating this t-shirt.

The whole point of the shirt is its completely random and nonsensical. That's what made it so popular.

It's basically a design coming from the question "How can dinosaurs be more awesome than they already are?"

The resist shirt was pretty awesome too though.

The end result of either has ultimately been oppression, but where the Can someone recap World War 2 for me? systematically killed thousands for their race and beliefs, the communists just tried to make a system of government in which everyone is equal. It doesn't work of course, but it doesn't help that typically communist leaders are corrupt and power-hungry, and therefore do not spread the wealth appropriately, so the vast majority is poverty stricken. Don't get my wrong, I don't believe communism is good, but at its core it's far more well-meaning than nazism ever was.



psssst....try MILLIONS, not thousands. and gotta love woot filters. I bwhahahawed at that one.

um, don´t know if anyone else ordered this to be overnighted, but I did and it was supposed to be here by today. but when I look at the page to check the tracking number, I gots nothing. just my receipt. the S.O. is going to Laredo tomorrow to pick things up, and I was so hoping my commie dinos would be there for Thursday´s recap of Russia and the collapse of the Soviet Union for my 7th grade geography class I am teaching.

Funny how there were sooooo many wooters losing their minds when this didn't print the first go round. Then it winds up the "derby chump" and doesn't even sell out. Even the Mon Petit Chou artichoke has sold more than Red Dinos. Just don't understand all the hubbub bub over this shirt.....

1. It's a cabbage, not an artichoke.

2. The cabbage is only about 200 sales ahead, and it's on a shirt color that's never been and probably never will be printed here again, with a three-day head start. I wouldn't be at all surprised if the dinos end up outlasting it.

3. The "hubbub bub" was over how this is one of the most hilariously surreal shirts ever submitted here, and it looked like it was never going to print, while a kawaii dog with a fish magically suspended in front of its face and a cat with a bizarrely bulbous head somehow managed the feat. Of course people lost their minds.

Wow, is SmartPost the most aptly named service, or what? My shirt needed to go a whopping 108 miles from Carrollton to Wichita Falls, and it got shipped from Dallas to Atlanta only to come BACK to Dallas. That didn't happen with any of the other 6 items I've bought from woot. I bet woot makes a killing off the shipping charges (at least from shirt purchases), as I bet it costs them probably $.50 to ship each item via DumbPost...

HERS!!
me = female
(I understand the confusion, but the person in the pictures is my brother, since the tee ended up being a gift for him)
And the design on my/his tee, when measured, was about half an inch off center, to the wearer's left. My pictures were horrible, but woot is awesome and the tshirt is being replaced.
Thanks again for your advice, Jestik!

I will always remember that you are female

I'm glad that woot fixed your problem. I guess if you buy enough shirts here, you're bound to run into that problem once in a while Woot's Customer Service rocks.

Bought 'Choice' about 10:30 am est just in hopes that this shirt would be off the list.

(Plus I've wanted it for quite a while too)

Guess that's killing 2 birds with 1 stone. :D

Happy wooting!
