If I could get one with hair straighteners and a tea pot (I'm very british) that would be great.

The robots are saying domesticity is futile, yet they seem to be advocating domesticity with their bodies and actions. This shirt makes no sense.

This one made me grin.

I was always thought that I wanted to be a Pepper Too, but being a Wooter seems like so much more fun!

what does it mean "domesticity is futile" if the robot/borg are the unstoppable force of domesticity? the illustration suggests that domesticity will dominate, and it is whatever the opposite of domesticity is that will suffer.

am I right?



Yeah the caption makes no sense and wrecks an otherwise nice enough illustration.

But I already exist! I do all of the house cleaning and most of the cooking. Oh, and I'm a home coffee roaster, keeping the house well-stocked with the freshed coffee imaginable.

Why the heck would they use a bagged vaccum in the future? should be at least a Dyson.

The Borg should have learned the best vacuum implementation strategy from Kryton. Maybe the Borg couldn't pick up a PBS station that carried Red Dwarf. (They obviously wouldn't pick up the BBC itself... How would they pay the license fee?! They aren't CRIMINALS!)

I didn't want to spend money.....I tried to resist, but resistance was futile....had to own this shirt!

(Though yes, the caption could have been a little better, but still....I can overlook that)

Not so much.

What are you saying, that Domesticity is Not Futile? That I'm not picking up the same toys I picked up yesterday, or washing the same dishes? This shirt makes perfect sense.

Sure, it doesn't work as a perfect analogy for the TNG reference. It provides that unexpected inversion of reality trick for those who are so well versed in borg-lore. You may also want to look up juxtaposition and excessive statement as humor devices.
Data gets it.

I interpreted the shirt to mean that OUR attempts at domesticity are futile. (In the same way that OUR attempts at resistence were futile.) If you could see my house at this very moment, you would not be surprised that this was my interpretation.

And, since in the world of Trekkers I probably count as a Hot Babe, I'm in for one!

Don't you hate it when people tell you "you might want to look something up"? As if you're dumb? More irritating than the poor use of juxtaposition, even. However, I can't claim that either have ruined my day, so my return flame ends here.

So...
This hits the very nerd market of a star trek villain ... and 'domestication' - behavior that nerds generally are not well known for.

--
Then we get to the text.
Which makes no sense.



Its amazing that any shirt on a wootoff cant sellout.
But this one has done it.
Grats.

Sorry but I have to agree about the caption. I love the concept, and the artwork is great. Redo it with a caption like "You Will Be Domesticated" and I'll bite.

That reminds me of the junkbots from The Incredible Crash Dummies movie, and as a side note, the main bad guy uses a vaccuum cleaner to subdue the professor.
