Make it midnight Eastern, 11 Central and 9 Pacific..



Dallas texas. Carrollton is a part of dallas... I only know because I used to live in DFW...

btw, you only hear 8pm Eastern, 7 Central, on TV all the time because you live in the eastern timezone.. when you actually move far enough into the next timezone, the TV stations appear almost identical, but they say stuff in Central time.. go further west, and they'll split it again.

i don't know man. i read the whole conversation. to me, her initial comment did sound like it had a contemptuous tone. plus, she argued that she meant to say, "PSH as in PSHAW," and then she immediately asks, "Why do I need to write it that way?!?" knowing full well that, as stated by her, people read "... comment completely out context (as is so common at woot)."

if she knows people might try to interpret her words wrongly, why not just be clear with her statements from the get go and avoid any of this? i don't think adding those two extra letters of AW at the end of PSH takes extra effort, and they're even adjacent to each other on the keyboard!

let me respond to your original post in a well-meanigful way:

well of course, you silly goose! there's some nostalgia effect in here, which people love here at woot. congrats on the sellout, and have a merry day

Monday Night Football and grabbed a snack about 11:00pm. A pack of Nutter Butter Peanut Butter cookies and a large glass of milk. BAMM........around 11:30pm.

Missed the last 2 minutes of game play.

Cookie crumbs on my pillow

Glass empty on the floor

and the slightest hint of sleep drool on my pillow.

It was so worth the $5 penalty to have slept through 1:00am like a baby. I’ll get a couple of these tomorrow

800+ woots! - Talk to the Square

I'm in Florida and also managed to get in on it last night without a problem. No reason to complain, if you miss it you miss it...you can always just pay the extra $5 and buy it tomorrow. Not the end of the world.

Just a reminder....

You can still buy this shirt for $15, starting at midnight (September 12th).

To do this, click the 9649 next to "ongoing sale" on the very first post of this thread (or even this post). The shirt will continue to be sold this way until it is no longer in the top 20 shirts. This works the same for all Woot shirts.


Now please, could you all read the What is Shirt.Woot? Thank you.

Did anybody else look at the picture and see milk glasses with a weird blue hedge behind them? I was like, "Wow, creepiest hedge ever. What does it mean? It looks like it's got some evil claws." And THEN I thought about Cookie Monster. I'm not the only one, right? Right? Right??

The hedges are haunting me

For those of you just joining us, let me summarize seven pages of comments for you:

Nice shirt, yay.
Pop culture shirts always sell well.
oh em gee IT IS SOLD OUT.
This will be in the reckoning for some time.
Yes, you can buy this tomorrow for $15.
The artist is talky and thanks everyone a lot.
A fight about the definition of fairness, discrimination, and where woot.com is based out of.
More people panicking about not being able to buy the shirt.
Woot.com should change their release times because someone is sleepy.


You are now caught up.

Believe it or not, should you wish to investigate further, there IS a Muppet Wiki. I knew these off the top of my head, but only because my mom wanted to work with Jim Henson before I was born. She made her early childhood education emphasis in puppetry. In fact, last year for Christmas, I bought her her own Whatnot (a Jim Henson Company designed muppet) to use at school for teaching the kids.



My mom also has one of those. I gave it to her for her birthday, and now she frightens both me and my 6 and 7 year old cousins with it.

I live on the east coast, too. If I miss out, then I pay the extra $5 if I think it's worth it. If I don't think it's worth it, I don't go around whining to everybody in some indecipherable rant.



What?!?!? You're supposed to *BUY* the shirts here? What do I do then with this ream of inkjet iron-on transfer paper and all these blank t-shirts? :-P

(Kidding, Woot!)

So, where is the poster.woot.com? Or, coffeecup.woot.com?

I ended up reading the pages after all - wanted to see what all this discrimination talk was about. And I gotta say, I agree with Jim. Woot is crazy discriminatory. I'm a victim too - I live in Canada. Do you know what they do? They tack on an additional $5 to the purchase. SAY WHAT? You advertised it as $10 on the front page! And now you're charging me $15? THAT'S FALSE ADVERTISING. Even Alaska gets free shipping - that's farther away than Alberta! Why do I have to pay for shipping when they don't?

And then I found out that they charged me MORE than $15. OK, so they charged me $15 USD, but I live in Canada - we use CANADIAN dollars. So I expected to pay $15 CAD but NOOOOOOOOOO. DISCRIMINATION. Woot should redesign their website to display the price in the proper currency depending on where I live, or else they should just charge me $15 CAD. IT'S ONLY FAIR. I mean, you expect me to look up the currency exchange rate just so I know how much I actually have to pay? That's extra work for me just to partake in a commercial exchange by which YOU profit. DISCRIMINATION.

And once, I really wanted a shirt right away. Regular orders take up to 5 weeks to reach me. Hey - Woot offers next-day shipping for an extra $5. But when I tried to get that, IT WASN'T AVAILABLE. Apparently they only offer that privilege to Americans. DISCRIMINATION.

You're all sheep. All of you.

I think woot should hire a mod just to edit every post that says anything about "Our Movie Genre I MISSED THIS IS THERE ANY WAY TO GET ONE AGAIN?" to "I am lazy and don't know how to search for information"

It is important to remember that Parody is only a defense. While I personally believe this falls well under parody (while the original was such a blatant rip that his rejection should have come with a thwap on the wrist so hard he couldn't have redone the piece at all), it is still completely possible for the Henson estate to feel otherwise, and for a judge to award a case to them. Parody is a device of humor, not a god-given free legal pass, even if in many cases parodies have been defended for what they are.
