...how can a unicorn be naked?



By not wearing clothes.

Free from the moral strictures of our so-called "civilization" (not to mention reality), unicorns don't wear clothes especially often. But even if a clothed unicorn would be altogether more noteworthy than an unclothed one, the latter is nevertheless most definitely naked.

The only thing that could make this shirt worth buying would be the presence of Conan the Barbarian van art.

Probably a mistake. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ven_diagram (or just google venn diagram like a good little surfer).

This shirt is way too plain and not very creative. Pass.

It has the putrid scent of MSPaint all over it.

Looks way too much like the Mastercard logo. And white shirts are spaghetti sauce magnets.

I love my Ven Vittles woot shirt, so I can appreciate the pun. But this one is not nearly as clever. I'll pass.

I think a Scion xB or Honda Element is more well-suited for the central area.

I took it to be a joke about VIN numbers.

It kinda doesn't, at least for the purposes if this pun. If only there were such thing as an Overcompensation Diagram.

How about a circle for the the thin mustache? It doesn't have to be connected to the circles at all, it could be watching from the bushes or something.

This shirt tells the world: “You Probably Think This Shirt Is About You. Don’t You? Don’t You? Don’t You?”


No one has pointed out the Nine Inch Nails song reference to starfuckers? Almost makes me want one just for that. Nice Woot. Nice.

As an xB owner, I completely agree. I would've have bought one then. But this shirt design is really bad. With some great designs left over from other derbies, I can never understand how stuff like this gets printed.

Funny concept but I don't like the execution. To me, it looks like someone is trying really hard to explain the joke, or the designer didn't want to bother filling in the diagram.

I agree - and I feel like this could cut out a lot of the "what about boxcars/scion xb's/elements/smartcars/hearses/other boxy bits?"

and yes, I think vans are far creepier than hearses.

Actually, I don't think anyone will be scratching their heads. It's fairly obvious from the all-too-unnecessary text. Without the text, it would be a little more clever.

Once again, woot has to dumb-it-down for the audience.

Fail! People like a shirt where the meaning is obscured a little but. Take out the words and it's an ok shirt.

I would say not so much funny as mildly offensive, and extremely fakon...it IS the huffington post (not worthy of capitalization)

woot changed my signature...apparently linking my old blog was "advertising"...never thought I'd see anyone give Obama a run for his money on being the nanny state...

Wow. Not only is the design subpar and lazy, which at times could make for a really good shirt, but the color choice is horrible and clashing.

Multiply these horrible decisions by white, and you've got an idea I love on a shirt I wouldn't wear for free.

I'm not willing to purchase for two reasons:

1.really the explanatory text ruins it
2. the venn diagrams would be placed right over the ta-tas, and even *I* am not that vulgar.

I grew up in the back of a Chevy van. Seriously, my dad lived in it for a while lol

Course, my dad's had a 6 inch lift kit, big tires, and occasionally ran over smaller cars (by accident, after a drunken party and backing out of the driveway)

This reminds me of another insightful design I've seen recently.

The pun's a bit better, too.
