Funny- along with ramy's designs, woot also linked seki's "imposter." The irony is rich.

Are they selling better than your shirts?

You could always petition woot to print me. I'd happily find out for sure!

I find the joke amusing, but not HILARIOUS, and I wouldn't wear it on a shirt either way. Also, I dislike the typical cartoony cutesy animal style, as others have noted. I really hope ramyb's style STAYS as it is in Derby #84: Sea, because THAT I adore.

Yay! Congratulations! I love that shirt. I am half tempted to buy it for some of my friends. Classic.

They would only change it to "She is reported to have said that before" in honor of ramyb's domination :P

Great shirt. Being female I wouldn't wear it but I got one for my brother and I know he'll appreciate it.

Well, I must be pretty slow or dense, but I didn't get it (the "joke") until I read the forum here. Now that I understand it, its not even funny. Unless I'm still missing something...

I have to admit, My daughter would have loved this shirt. But the text is just stupid.


If there were a print without the text, I'd bit in a second. But with it...the shirt is childish.

Sorry.

Don't worry, I'm not getting all feminist. I just really hate having my 60 year old boss tell me "that's what she said" when I say something like "I'm having a hard time getting this to fit into the male end" (when talking about XLR plugs). In the workplace, it's just very irritating.

Also, I should have caught on to that dude's screen name (schrute) but I was tired. Happily, Adder is ever vigilant and now I know I just walked right in to somebody's sad attempt at humor. Oh, woot, when will I ever cease to look like an chocolate starfish?

Carpe shirtem!

Imposter was a collab between ramyb and seki.

I've bit on the cute shirts before, but coming from someone making his first post, I think the shirt is just trying to cash in on a "that's what she said" (which seems a bit more awkward than funny when it's between two hamsters/chipmunks) and put to use the current hot selling of cute animals on the shirts themselves.

Don't mean to ramble, and I know this is far from ramyb's first print, and congrats on it man. But I dunno, I don't think it's the type of shirt that shouldn't have garnered such praise considering it was in a derby. I figure those would be more catering to what we haven't seen before..

Sorry, figured you would appreciate another POV aside from the usual "so cute, yay ^_^"

and grats on the print and sell out, regardless

wasn't that a collabo between seki and ramy?

Why are shirt quantities limited to 3000? When the shirts are sold out in the morning, obvioulsy many more would be bought.

So they can sell more of them the next day @ $15 instead of $10.

Damn! Awesome job ramyb! You're dominating so much, that this could be like a part-time job for you.

Cute design. And oh, the classic 'that's what she said' joke. I may buy for a guy friend some day.

Anyways, congrats on the sell out!

I am corrected. Well, it WOULD have been ironic if seki's had snuck in there.

old or not, I still get a kick when this is pulled out of no where during conversation... but yeah, like ALL jokes, it can get repetitious quickly.

This will make a nice addition to my shirt.woot.rotation

And for those making the "it's offensive because of _____"... please toughen up. Its a light hearted joke and is not meant maliciously (most of the time I'm assuming) and those claiming its harassment perhaps dial down their internal political correctness meters *

Ok, Ramyb has done some OUTSTANDING work, and this art is no less great. But "that's what she said"? Are you kidding me? Yeah... Not buying a shirt that says that. This is why I hate when they allow text in derby's. Can't wait to see his next one though.

Why has the Derby become all about cute animal koi? This is getting annoying, IMO. Nothing against the shirt or the artist, just the general voting patterns of the woot voters.

Well, obviously that's what appeals to the majority of the voters. And the only way I can see that not happening is if they no longer allow cute animals as subject matter. And they'd probably not sell nearly as many shirts.

Me, I won't vote on wistful, beautiful women shirts, shirts with dinosaurs or big lizards on them, monkeys, or skeleton/skulls.

Heck, I don't even vote on cute animal shirts. I do vote for shirts with kitty cats, but I gave up on that because the shirts I voted on never won. So, I don't even vote any more.

But I buy shirts with cute animals, stick figures, and kitty cats.

I like today's shirt because I find the cute animals appealing and the text reaches my inner fifteen year old girl that laughs at anything with vaguely sexual undertones.
