How can y'all sell a shirt with a design that has been on threadless for a year and I've had the same image as a wallpaper for just as long or longer. Are y'all just copying funny wallpapers now? I guess this is one reason why the only shirts I've bought have been derby and are original images.

Yep, it explodes in the Mind Robber, but that's all just part of the Land of Fiction trickery, it doesn't really fall apart.

Yep, I'm a dork.

Back to the Future was just - meh.


Aw Back to the Future was classic when I was younger. Even the sequels - anyone remember hoverboards? Ahhh I wanted one so bad.
I don't know how it would be watching it now though.

Vote!

You do realize that Dr Who was way before Bill & Ted and is a lot cooler and geekier right?

Ah, I didn't make that connection. I stand corrected.

LOL, at first I thought it was a bird crapping rainbows too. It wasn't until I read the thread during the derby that I found out it was supposed to be a tornado.

You can ride with me, or you can find your own path. Don't stab me in the back after I've cleared the way.

The Doctor has a robotic Dog named K9, He even has a Taser like device to subdue baddies.

O and the Keys thing may also refer to the theme tune which was made by taking a key and scarping it along piano strings.

Oops sorry, someone already mentioned the keys thing and the Tardis sound effect. My bad.

1. This design is not available on any other website. It was SUBMITTED to Threadless, but never printed.

2. Daily shirts (like this one) do not need to follow all of the rules imposed in the derby. This is because derby shirts are produced under a very short time frame whereas daily shirts have time for the various issues (such as possible copyright infringment) to be hammered out.

3. I know there have been a few derby entries with the Tardis, but the only ones I can recall had no element of parody whatsoever. Even if there was parody, rejection is still possible due to my second point. In the case of this design, there IS sufficient parody - at least the Woot lawyers believe so.

(Unofficial) Derby Rules (outdated?)
Designing for the Derby (definitely outdated)
Tips for New Designers (always useful)

okay, yes the Tardis did blow up...but from wrong things happening INSIDE it.

Edit: Just figured it out. I haven't watched much Dr. Who but it's the same.

I agree that it should have been from Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure. More people would "get it" when they saw it, at least in the US.



There are some of us around who rejoice in being unique and wearing t-shirts that not everyone gets. Two of my all time favorites are "there's no place like 127.0.0.1" and my Disaster Area shirt, both of which very few people around me understand. Those who do understand them know me all too well.

It could have also been a reference to the Key to Time story arc from the Tom Baker years.

I would have purchased three of these shirts and worn them until they were tattered rags.

Is it wrong that I stayed up till midnight to buy this shirt for $5 more even though it's not going to sellout again? I must have it.
