Drakxxx only ended up in the fog because another entry got the boot. Their art file supposedly wasn't uploaded to woot by 8am Thursday morning.

Drakxxx was a good 50 some votes behind 3rd.

The condition of this shirt is insulting. I'm sure David Bowie would want nothing to do with this shirt or any of the other ones in the Japan derby. AND THE SONG IS CALLED "CHINA GIRL"!

Seeing Japanese wear shirts with English they don't understand on them has taught me one thing - I'm never going to wear a shirt with Japanese writing on it in Japan.

No see, there should be two sporks, so if you wanna use chopsticks then you can just flip the sporks around and use em!

Woot should have a week where they print all of Drakxxx's near wins and then watch as almost all of them sell out.

Congrats!
I really like the way this looks... the not too contrasty colors, vintage looks... I can't decide if I'm in for one. It looks great. But...hopefully I won't see any Japanese people when I'm wearing it (if I buy it), as I think the phrasing is a little formal. Plus, I prefer chopsticks, and I'd kinda like it better without the face. But I still like the way it looks overall because of the colors and style. Hmmm decisions.

Btw everyone - all asian characters aren't kanji. For instance, this design has a mix of kanji and characters from 2 Japanese alphabets. I keep seeing a lot of people calling everything that looks asian writing "kanji" round these parts.

Vote!

Well, the text along the circle says "this is the new chopstick." I recognize the kanji in the other line, but would have to look it up.

The same reason why I didn't buy any of the Japan derby shirts.

It's insulting to see anyone wear a shirt with Asian characters nowadays.

i must admit, i do like the vintage look of the design though...but i dont like it enough to buy...seems a little off-topic to me...

The design would be perfect as the cover on a menu of a Japanese restaurant run by Americans in Mexico in the 1950's.

For those of you who are wondering, the text says:

先割れスプーン

sakiware supuun "spork"

これは、新しいお箸です

kore wa, atarashii ohashi desu "this is the new chopstick".

It means what it says, and the Japanese isn't wrong. I believe that it more polite than you'd expect from a t-shirt, but whatever.

I just checked, and my translation is essentially the same as was done in its original submission thread by superspryte.

please note: sakiware is pronounced sa-key-wa-ray

Let's look at this scientifically:

Eating:
Chopsticks let you pick up everything from a grain of rice to a whole lotta noodles (don't be rude and stuff your face though).

Sporks are supposed to be a fork/spoon hybrid, but they're only kinda okay at either one. They're better suited for soft desserts than chopsticks, however.

Advantage- Chopsticks

Self defense:

Chopsticks aren't very sharp, but they can deliver a solid, painful poke which will slow attackers.

Sporks can too, but they're usually made out of bendy plastic, which means that they won't do much good aimed at center mass.

Advantage: Chopstick

Improvisational uses:

Chopsticks can be used for anything stick related, including drumsticks, pick up sticks, walking sticks (for exceptionally short people) and devil sticks.

Sporks would probably be a decent replacement for a miniature zen garden rake. Other than that, I dunno.

Winner- Chopsticks. Sorry, spork.

Unless, of course, the person wearing it speaks/understands the Asian language in which it's written.

I tend to stay away from shirts with Japanese writing, but the design on this one was just too much fun to pass up.

Agreed. Some shirts that I will never wear keep winning ahead of it.

Well... I think it's Asia's (particularly Japan's) fault for making a cool looking symbol language.

If they would of just stuck to normal letters... They wouldn't have this problem.
