Am I crazy or something? I notice some comments about no "M" on the hat. Isn't there half of an M there that I see?

I like the design, but probably wouldn't wear this on a shirt.

I'll be interested to see how copyright people like this.

Odd coincidences:

Today I got an email from Nintendo (marketing email) that has this as the title line -

David, what's short, round, and tastes like a mustache?

Eerie!

The size of the pipe makes me realize something... Fake pipes are actually pots. A potted plant. It all makes sense now. Why would a vicious plant come from a pipe? Obviously, it wouldn't. "But what about the pipes that you can go down that have a pirahna plant?" you say. It's a trick of perspective. There was a potted plant BEHIND the pipe! "What about the 3D Marios?" What about them? Mario was trippin' on 'shrooms by that point. Everything in the Super Mario Bros. series is perfectly believable.
[arbitrary line break]
Mario was just a simple plumber doing his job. In his world, they didn't have cars, so he had to walk to work. Ants were trying to carry off the mushrooms back to their colonies, but Mario has a deep fear and hatred for ants. If he doesn't squish them (or burn them) and comes in close contact with them, he will become small and cowardly, to the point of running away (and having to start the level over again). Mushroom powerups, that is simply because Mario is a growing boy. He needs his nutritious mushrooms (though in latter parts of his life, he has serious hallucinations)! As for coins, we all find quarters lying on the ground sometimes. But that's chump change. We still need a job, you know. The Koopas are simply turtles undergoing evolution. Mario is a strong Christian, so he makes sure evolution doesn't happen (sorry for those I offend). Hammer Bros are the construction workers, but they're pretty clumsy. Poor Mario needs to watch out more often. Latikus are actually bomber planes, but we perceive them as clouds because of the trail of smoke left behind. These bombs are prototype biomechanical weapons though, so even if you're not hit on the way down, they'll rush into you and make you push the pointy-shaped trigger. Why are Latikus bombing you though? They're Bowser's minion of course!
[failed attempt at making paragraphs]
Now onto the castles. Mario's got to fix their major plumbing problem. The first tricky part is getting past their security. You have to pull down a white flag to gain clearance. However, sometimes you will find yourself jumping too high to reach the flag, and it sets off the castle's anti-air defense. Then, once you get in, the servant tells you that the mistress is located in another castle, who is the person that pays you.

After you're in the castle, you have to go underground, where all pipes lead, to fix the problem. And that's simple enough. Water is what comes from the leaked pipe. Oh, the things we must go through for our duties (hehe).

Then lastly we've got Bowser. He's the leader of the hired mob. "Hired mob? But why?" Mario is Italian, of course. He loves his pizza. He works hard like the pizza delivery boys and promises his services (his plumbing, that is. No dirty thoughts!) delivered in 30 minutes or less. Peach hired Bowser to slow Mario down so she wouldn't have to pay him for all of his hard work. *gasp!*

And that concludes the story of why Mario is a believable story. Why did I write that again? Oh yeah, because I'm tired but I must stay awake. Thank you Woot, for allowing me to waste time that I have too much of.

Oh, and nice shirt.

awesome design, seriously. too bad i'd never be caught dead in a grass colored tee.. it matches nothing.. lets ban grass color tee's please.. there are better greens, especially ones that don't fade, aka KELLY GREEN. or olive even.. heck.. i have never seen a purple woot tee. i demand some more variety! i've got over 100 of these shirts, i at least need one royal purple shirt for my collection. blahh. i'm just tired of missin' out on awesome designs because of this shirt color.. LET's make like a drug free ad, and PASS on that GRASS.

sorry for the rant.. IKACKMAN, rock on.

Well, I know I bought it 2 seconds after viewing the picture at 12:02 last night. On my cell phone because I was driving.

That's how much I like this shirt, enough to get in a terrible car accident over.

In WootBot's first post to the forums for each shirt, you'll see a link to the "ongoing sale". That ongoing sale is here.

I actually woke up last night to use the bathroom, figured this would have been derby champ, and bought one because i knew it would be a sellout.

Yeah, it amazes me that this shirt sold out so fast when other, more original shirts that I thought were 10x better don't sell out at all. I mean, don't get me wrong, this is a well-drawn design, but it's just a Mario shirt. Then I looked at the other Derby contenders and realized it didn't have much of interesting competition. But still... I'm surprised it sold out.

Edit: I just looked one of the Mario shirt designer's other designs and liked it a lot. Apparently it needs voting support to be made, though. If you all liked his/her design so much, you should go to http://cameesa.com/support/design/202/little-people-dance-too and vote there so another shirt of theirs gets made.

So much word. Color me bumfoozled when I saw this tee had sold out. Not saying it isn't well done or a nifty design, but I dunno. I expected more from the Derby winner. *shrugs* To each their very own.

As a total video game nerd I wasn't really surprised at all... except that it sold out so fast I didn't get one of my own!

It may not be super fancy, but I feel like this shirt has a feel to it that's really comforting and reminiscent to a lot of people and I think that's why it sold out. My favorite designs here have always been the simple ones that make me smile over the more elaborate.

See I'm a total video game nerd too. So I guess I'm kind of to the point where I have so many awesome game-inspired shirts that either it takes a lot to get me geeked or perhaps I'm simply kind of burned out.

It's a nice shirt with a nice design, like I said. Full props for that. But for me, its kind of "meh". It also pales in comparison IMHO to other designs that are more "Flora" than this one.
