I like looking at the sales map. Utah and West Virginia are Jewish hot spots, yes?

Would have been more effective it it had been gold metallic ink, IMO...

cool + funny; and I feel like I should buy one to represent PA, which is usually a little bit blue by now!

While I agree that Blue and Silver are colors associated with the holiday, when I think Gelt I think gold, or Euros since like xazy and others I tend toward German readings (should be studying for that final in fact...), rather than silver. Though, I am made to understand by the food network that gelt comes in gold, silver, and other colors as well and can be stamped with logos and such, thanks to Unwrapped for that. I agree completely however, chocolate is great.

Yellow/gold is just as easily a Chanukah color with blue, instead of silver...

Think of the flames! Festival of lights!

Yay! Metallic! Let's do this metallic(a) thing more often

Hmmm... does the metallic ink stick to the shirt well? Or does it wash off relatively easily? Hmmmm hmmmm hmmmm...

AdderXYU wrote:It's like saying "Solid Gold". Gelt would be money, such as those gold chocolate coins they sell at Hanukkah time. So this is saying "I'm solid gold! but gelt! which means I'm jewish and like cheezy catchphrases!"

I mean, I guess it's better than I Can Haz Dreidel, but especially being printed in metallics, there's plenty to kvetch about here.

I'm amused at how much the Yiddush language is now a part of pop culture, my grandmother actually speaks it fluently, but that's b/c she was born in Europe...

As for gelt, it does mean money, it was because parents used to give their children gelt on chanukah (and you all thought x-mas came up w/gift-giving ;]). It was also because the coins were used to play the game of driedel (which yes, does have rules).

You can get coins in both silver or gold wrapping (so either color scheme would work) It all depends on whether they are milk or dark chocolate (the milk is the gold, the dark is the silver), helps to differentiate which to serve at meat and dairy meals due to kosher laws and of course for chocolate preference. ;)

Chanukah Sameach L'kulam!

I love the First sucker. The only way his username could've been more stereotypical was if it was "OyVey", or perhap "irvingfelsenthal".

I absolutely love that this Chanukah shirt still has the "if you want this before Christmas..." information at the bottom of the description. It made me giggle

P.S. Totally buying one of these and wearing it to the JCC that I work at

If you need this by Christmas, you can take your chances with SmartPost, but better to pony up the $5 and overnight it.



And if you want it by Hannukah, too bad, Woot has yet to invent the postal time machine.

(Happy Hannukah, day 5)

Anyone listen to the Minneapolis electro rock band Solid Gold? That's the first thing I thought of when I saw this shirt.

Check them out. You'll love them...

Dear Woot Cultural Sensitivity Monkeys:

Chanukkah is about to END, not START.

You should have run this a few weeks ago.

Sorry, FAIL on the timing. Otherwise cute design.

A few possible slogans:

"A chosen shirt for God's chosen people."

"It's Hannukool!"

"Don't say 'menorah'-- say 'meYESrah' to this shirt!"

I am very amused by woot!

As I am sure has been stated before, one of the things that parents and grandparents give to their children and grandchildren is Gelt. Gelt is yiddish for money.

There used to be a major Rabbi that lived earlier in the 1900's who used to give gelt to his descendants on the fifth night of Channukah,which was last night and going through today until nightfall. The name this Rabbi went by was the Steipler (pronounced Sty-pler). The reason that he gave out Gelt on this night versus the other 7 nights is because this is the only night of Channukah that cannot fall out on Shabbos (Sabbath/day of rest).

Much to my pleasure, Woot! has chosen to continue with this custom this year.

On a side note, I was really hoping that wine.woot would be selling something Kosher too. Oh well.

Intro: This is a song, that uh, theres alot of Xmas songs out there, but not too many about Hanukkah, so I wrote a song for all those nice little Jewish kids who dont get to hear any Hanukkah songs--here we go...
Put on your yalmulka, here comes Hanukkah
Its so much fun-akkah to celebrate Hanukkah,

Hanukkah is the Festival of Lights,
Instead of one day of presents, we have eight crazy nights.

When you feel like the only kid in town without a Xmas tree,
Heres a list of people who are Jewish, just like you and me:

David Lee Roth lights the menorrah,
So do James Caan, Kirk Douglas, and the late Dinah Shore-ah

Guess who eats together at the Karnickey Deli,
Bowzer from Sha-na-na, and Arthur Fonzerrelli.

Paul Newmans half Jewish; Goldie Hawns half too,
Put them together--what a fine lookin Jew!

You dont need Deck the Halls or Jingle Bell Rock
Cause you can spin the dreidl with Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock--both Jewish!

Put on your yalmulka, its time for Hanukkah,
The owner of the Seattle Supersonic-ahs celebrates Hanukkah.

O.J. Simpson-- not a Jew!
But guess who is...Hall of Famer--Rod Carew--(he converted!)

We got Ann Landers and her sister Dear Abby,
Harrison Fords a quarter Jewish-- not too shabby!

Some people think that Ebeneezer Scrooge is,
Well, hes not, but guess who is: All three stooges.

So many Jews are in show biz--
Tom Cruise isn¹t, but I heard his agent is.

Tell your friend Veronica, its time you celebrate Hanukkah
I hope I get a harmonica, on this lovely, lovely Hanukkah.

So drink your gin-and-tonic-ah, and smoke your marajuanic-ah,
If you really, really wanna-kah, Have a happy, happy, happy, happy Hanukkah.

No Frills Signature.
