You think you should let the wookie win? Someone is getting force choked for this.

edit: waaaait a minute. something really IS going on around here. what gives, woot?
you got caught in a woot word edit... that turned into a brand new version of "who's on first".
It's definitely gonna beat "Steaming Mad" for worse sales of the year award!!!! I've NEVER seen a worse shirt on woot since I've been a member. Absolutely TERRIBLE!!!! You should be ashamed!!!!

THAT would have been an excellent touch
tdawg1914 wrote:Haha, TNG fans are will freak out over this one! (including me)
For those wondering where the "four aces" thing comes from... it's a classic Next Generation episode. Picard is captured and tortured. His interrogator tries to break him, starting with getting Picard to say he sees five lights, when the are only four right in front of him.
Culminates in this scene:
I love Star Trek TNG and I remember that episode. I'm really mixed with the shirt. I love the idea, but there are elements in the design's execution that I'm not a huge fan of. In particular, I'm not liking how the artist drew Picard.
Merry Christmas, geeky friends!
This feels like it should work on paper, but it's so many inside jokes it just feels full of buttafuoco. sorry but no.

Its a trap, yes. "Noooo" is not a meme.
Facepalm, yeah. Aces? Do I need to be a picard/trek fan to "get it"?
Are you serious? I think that you need to come into the year 2010 and get on YouTube like everyone else before you put these posts up.
This shirt is hilarious! In for 1!

First time in awhile I knew immediately I needed a Woot shirt as soon as I saw it and it printed. I so called it but it seemed the obvious winner.

I still would like sad Keanu if you post it somewhere else.
Can someone explain what tune, if any, i should be hearing in my head when i read the write up?
smolket wrote:Completely Amoeba Sized Inside Joke or not....when does anyone playing poker ever say "there are four aces".....?
Could have been a classic shirt, but the horrible wording makes it a no buy.....
That's why Riker's doing a facepalm. He's embarrassed at Picard's groaner. I almost want to get the shirt because of that.
Debated on this in the derby, couldn't decide if I wanted or not. The last 'It's A Trap!' I did the same thing, and ultimately passed on, which I regretted. I like the last one better, but I DO want a 'It's A Trap!' shirt.... will decide in the morning. If sold out(probably will), hopefully Woot will ease off the Star Wars ban and another one will be made... considering how these geek types sell out, I assume that's probable.

It's on the top of the write up

I'm just so happy the blog was a parody of OAR's "Crazy Game of Poker". I love that song.
woot, you messed up. he knows the meaning of "there are four aces", he's just saying that no one would ever say that. which is true.

It's only an issue if you're an ensign, so unless you are, you'll be fine.
I want to wear this, but I won't be able to live it down with my buddies who think the Enterprise could beat a Star Destroyer. (Which it can't...)
I always thought celebrity likeness was a no-no here. Maybe since its is meme inspired that rule doesn't apply... ?
Anyhoo, congrats on the print! Not my cup of tea, but this one definitely made me laugh and I don't even know the memes that were involved to create this. A joke for everyone
It turns out if you just keeping adding celebrity likenesses and do away with parody, you reach a point where it's all fine.
Tomorrow, the cover of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band!
Okay, I'm a bit bemused this didn't spook the lawyers but all power to you stardamsel. I was rooting for you, congrats on the win! :^)
is Darth Vader wearing Air Jordan's ?
It would be so much better if Vader were saying "".
Stunning lyrics, can I get those printed on the back of the shirt?
Great...meme derby shirts. See everybody in three days.
Pretty good implementation of the theme of the contest, but I still can't help but think this was a bad idea for a derby.
Though, I might mention that I have the Clockmaker tee, and I kinda like cranberry as a tee color.
I think I would regain my virginity if I wore it though.
Over 10 years ago, in high school, I was in a programming class. The teacher asked my friend a question that he did not know the answer to so he replies, "There are four lights."
My teacher was confused, shook his head and went on to do something else.
It was quite hypnotic.
This is a buy.
thought this was another White Stripes album cover for a second
Haters gonna hate!
In for 3!
There are 4 lights (aces) reference ... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o_eSwq1ewsU#t=03m16s
Love it & ordered 2. I try to hold out for the nerdy ones. I'm surprised it wasn't soldout! already.

It's a trap. Duh.
Where os the third one? And don't tell me its dogs playing poker because that a hit hit the public pre-Internet, bitches.
I was a freshman at Ohio State in 1997!!
This is funny because I was a freshman, at OSU, in 1997. And they would not stop playing that damn song.
Kindof a stupid shirt though.
Love the shirt!
Also, until this morning I'd never heard O.A.R. Pretty sure I'd heard of them, but had no idea what they were like, and just assumed they were rap or hip-hop. (Yes, I'm an out-of-touch fogey nearing middle-age. Damn I miss my college days!)
I've got the linked video playing in the background, and I like the sound. Thanks for enlightening me Woot!
As the artwork suggests, definitely would have bet my money on this one to take 1st place, so full of win.
Great job, damsel!

It's Next Generation, so the worst is you'll get hurt, but you won't die.
This was my first encounter with the noooo meme back when it was on ytmnd, by far the best!
I just tried to look at http://darthno.ytmnd.com/ and got this message:
Based on your corporate access policies, access to this web site ( http://darthno.ytmnd.com/ ) has been blocked because the web category "Criminal Activity" is not allowed.
This is easily the best write-up ever.
This is great, and I'm familiar with all four memes in it, and I really like both Star Wars and Star Trek but... I dunno, It's kind of way too busy... I don't want people staring at my shirt for 30 seconds trying to figure it out.
"Noooo" is not a meme? Clearly, you are not attune to that subculture.
