Since when was Woot such a community of hippies? Just curious, how many other Republicans are there here?

this shirt embrangles. as a jam band follower i find it extremely not funny. just because you're from a "hippie" area doesn't mean you're going to be "cool" for wearing it around town.

I used to live at a place called Sunshine Daydream in Terra Alta WV and that place is loaded with hippies. I purchased 1 to celebrate my love hate relationship with those smelly treehuggers.

Great design!

This is great, one of the best derby winners in months. Got mine, and will thoroughly enjoy wearing it around everyone who posted a comment along the lines of, "This is SO not funny!" And around hippies on campus of course.

Could there be a more fitting shirt for myself as I live just outside of Boulder, CO? Best shirt I've ever owned and will be checking the mailbox daily till it arrives.

Ah, those long-time days of yore when hippies roamed the earth and everyone knew where Haight-Ashbury was and illegal substances containing acetaminophen (e.g. Tylenol possibly Real Soon Now) were being passed around like candy . Or sugar cubes at least. The summer of our Love, the winter of our Tear-Gassing.

Interestingly, two things separate me from the so-called "Hippie Generation". The first is that I was in Belgium during its height and they didn't much care about it one way or the other there. The second, and far more important, was that I was actually too young to participate and would have been even in the "best" of circumstances. At least I don't miss having missed it.

-

And now, brought to you from the back cover of an ancient copy of MAD(tm) Magazine in full color, a joke apropos to this topic:

Scene - two extremely grungy hippies sitting on either side of a small table. Both of them have bowls in front of them.

Hippie 1: "What's for dinner?"

Hippie 2: "Leftovers."

Hippie 1: "Give me some, man..."

Hippie 2: [reaches up to long beard and wrings out a stream of - well, let's be nice and call it 'left-overs']

(end of strip)

Completely off topic: I've been reading MAD since 1965 or so. I'm not entirely certain why my father, who was a fairly straight-laced colonel in the Air Force would purchase such a thing, much less 'allow' it to be in the household. In any case, for years upon years it was supported completely by magazine-shelf sales and subscriptions.

I remember the very first issue that contained advertisements. Oh yes, they were executed (in a graphic sense, an aesthetic that certainly is appreciated greatly around here) in a far more sophisticated manner than most of the 'regular' stuff, but given the materials produced by "The Usual Gang Of Idiots", although they were VERY odd they simply were not bizarre enough to immediately raise any flags that they were out of the ordinary.

I just thought they were, perhaps, something a little bit more peculiar - but without narrative content - than I was used to.

And then I realized that they were actually adverts for games and other stuff and felt a little bit - disappointed that my beloved MAD magazine had finally sold out and had gone over to the Dark Side because they have chocolate-chip cookies over there.


Past that, even though because of events I could never have been a hippie, I do believe that this shirt truly embodies what you would actually see Way Back Then (although we'd be talking about some really cheap hippies that didn't use 20 colors and psychedelic art) that I believe I'll nab one. When I'm walking the streets of Santa Fe, I'll bet someone will eventually ask me where and when the band will be playing.

Didn't just steal the bumper sticker. Stole the entire bumper. Driving around that town without bumpers is illegal.

The graphic on on this shirt is more about buskers.

Not all hippies are dirty, and most aren't street performers.

I dislike this generation's South Park attitude towards "Hippies".

Now fill in your parts, and just keep going!

I'm trying real hard, but I can't figure out where your lines are supposed to fit into the song. Were they intended to?

Woot guys - "Stop, children, what's that smell..." That is complete awesomeness. I'm still laughing from that bit.



Jewelwing - I'm vacationing in Pisgah Forest this weekend. And I've seen tons of filthy hippies! Now i know where you got your inspiration.
Going to my first Asheville drum circle tonight. Too bad I don't have one of these shirts to wear.

I don't think I'll be picking up any from this derby, but this is my favorite of the three SDS is predicting to print.

JW, congrats on the win. Your "tap water" shirt has a regular slot in my tee rotation. People really seem to get a kick out of that one

Seriously? You've been around for 2 and 1/2 years and don't understand the word filters in the woot forums?

As for the shirt, I love it, and would have bought it if it had been on almost any other color. But really? Black in the midst of summer? It's been 90+ here for two weeks now. Don't want to smell like I'm part of the band!

Edit: Oh who am I kidding? I can't resist such a great design. I'll just wait to wear it when the weather changes.

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