Even so, though, woot IS NOT A KIDS SHIRT SITE, no matter what the voters might insist on most weeks. Woot's PG-13 rules apply mostly so they don't have horrible frat humor and t-shirt hell level bad-ideas littering their site even more than it's already littered, not because they sell kids shirts. Woot prints as things sell. If they sell one or one thousand kids tees on one design, it's all the same to them.
So while this design isn't really very good, "kid appropriateness" is not really what the PG-13 is all about. It might get the axe anyway, but the kids are so not the reason.
I'm disagreeing with you on the kids shirt issue. Obviously, I'm a bit biased here, as I have a kid who I purchase woot shirts for.
I don't tend to buy him gristle though. There are times that I vote for shirts based on the fact that I would buy them for him- but it tends not to be a quality thing, more of a 'style' thing. He can wear a lot more colors than I can, and can pull off the shirts with 'cute creatures' on them better than I can. Plus, I have to wear a uniform every day at work- so I don't have the need for as many t-shirts as him.
I think woot printed just as much gristle before kids sizes became available. The cute crummy stuff was printing and selling annoyingly well before. At least now I see some sort of explanation for it selling.
I do avoid purchasing bloody shirts for my son- but that doesn't necessarily stop my from buying them. In addition to your radishes is my current all time favorite woot shirt. I just bought it for me instead of my child.
I purchased the following in sizes for my son, while some of them are 'cute', overall I think they're extremely 'quality'
