If I got an EC on this, I'd be ecstatic, but I figure that won't be the case. I'm debating between putting it up at my shop or putting it up at Mysoti instead. Who knows, maybe I can get one of the shirt-a-day sites to pick it up. Thank you for the support in any case, Bun

Knowledge is easy to come by.

I haven't voted for it and I don't plan on buying it, but I can easily see why it's popular. The art is well done, the idea is both cute and comedic, the design has an interesting layout, and a nice colour palette has been chosen to complement a popular shirt colour. I suppose it's less appealing if you don't know much about the birds (and can't be bothered to spend a few minutes on Google or Wikipedia), but votes suggest that quite a few people understand.

You're wrong about the last point. It hasn't been in the fog since day 1. It may have been jumping in and out over the last few days though. Currently it is probably in fourth place; it's only been in the fog for the last 4 hours. "What's Under the Bed" has been fogged for about a day and the other two have been fogged since Friday. Looks like this one is at the bottom of the fog.

Edit: Just noticed the name of the shirt (/facepalm).. so my first point was invalid (omitted)... but the rest of my statement stands.

Are there really that many people out there that will see this shirt and instantly "get it"? I doubt it. I also seriously doubt everyone that has voted for this shirt knew that it is supposed to be a homage to the bird's mating ritual. I was never rude about the shirt. All I said was that I don't get it, and I don't think it's that wearable. But then again, I didn't think the Cats with Weapons shirt from the Mystery Derby was that wearable either, and then I saw a girl wearing it two nights ago and it looked pretty good. It doesn't change the fact that I wouldn't wear it. Different strokes for different folks. Honestly, there are only two shirts in this Derby that I would wear. Does that mean the other shirts suck? No. It just means I don't find them funny, or it's not a style that I would wear, or that I don't get it. I was never rude like you are being with your insinuation that I am lazy or uneducated because I didn't automatically feel the need to go google search "Blue Footed Boobie Mating Rituals". The fact of the matter is, that this shirt has been in the fog every time I have checked the top vote getters. That is where that last item came from. Now get the eff off my back.

Wow, sorry Kida. I wasn't trying to be rude. I should have reread that parenthetical remark and phrased myself better. And I guess it couldn't have been helped if you didn't notice the shirt title earlier. I don't think the rest of my post had any rudeness to it, but that's just me. The latter part about fog stats was just for your information, nothing more. If you're curious, you can check out Shirt Derby Stats for more information. You can navigate to "Current Derby" and then "Top Ten" to see vote estimates and fog times.

Again, my apologies for the misunderstanding.

Sorry, it's been one of those days. I didn't mean to jump all over you like that. It's just hard to decipher tone over the interwebs :P.

Ok - then maybe I don't get right that! *g*

I'm from Germany and maybe the "extremely popular children's novel" isn't THAT popular over here!

That's why I asked! ;-)

This is my favorite shirt of the derby. Such a different and interesting shirt from what we normally see at Woot. I can't think of a higher compliment to give than that.

Re: People of the Sun (final)



I'm hoping for an Editor's Choice on this one. I love the colors and the style. One of my two favorite shirts in the derby and they both have to deal with dudes dressing up as birds. I may have to save the rest of this post for my therapist.

Charlotte's Web. Also an animated movie. It teaches kids a great lesson about becoming real close to a friend only to have that friend die tragically.

After giving birth to hundreds of babies, if I remember correctly. Story of my life.

I hope this gets printed, not only for the fact that it is darn good, but I just need to see how this is going to print with halftones. If this doesn't make it as an editor's choice, I'd say them not wanting to attempt to print it would be the biggest reason.

Not to get on your back, KID, but I thought I'd pass on one of the many reasons why someone [not YOU - I know you wouldn't wear it] would wear this. I teach 9th grade science to the LEAST curious 9th graders at our high school. The shirts are a way of getting them to ask a question - ANY question - when I wear them. They'll get the general theme [a LOVE dance - 9th graders think they know a lot about love] even if they don't get the BFB part. It'll also give me an excuse to use the word BOOBIE in class. No Child Left Standing and Standards do not preclude using double entendres to get a kids attention

Yes, it is on navy.

An editor's choice is something all artists not in the top 3 pray for after a do-over derby. lol The editor's choose their favorites to print in the days following the top 3 prints.

People should stop hating. Helpful criticism is always a plus, everything else is just weak sauce.

I love this design, and how it represents the quote. There's too many woot shirts trying to be funny or cute (even if some of those come from my fav designers). GMV, will be watching to buy this soon.
