The condensed story:

A barrel of curious monkeys broke open one night, wanting to get a banana split to share. They worked together, hooking arm-in-arm, to sneak the money from the piggy bank. Then traipsed down to the local ice cream parlor and stuffed themselves silly with ice cream and banana goodness.

Then the ice cream parlor suffered from copious food/health code violations for serving animals in their restaurant and was shut down forever due to the size of the fines they were required to pay.


The End.


Congrats on the print, walmazan!

What happens every time I buy a t-shirt...glad to see this one up, it's great fun. My nieces + nephew use those monkeys for everything so this seems a perfectly natural group activity.

If I order this shirt, does it come with an order of Michael Nesmith, Peter Tork, or Davy Jones?
Or Micky Dolenz as a last resort..

Has there ever been a comparison on the profits done off of derby winners and editors choice shirts VS the funny shirts?

I know the vast majority of my purchases are not derby champs or editors choice.

Congratulations on printing three (3) weeks in a row, Wences! In for one and cross-posted to Monkeeland. And, might I add, this gives me my black square back!

Once inside the Piggy, there are 3 security systems in operation whenever the technician is out of the room. First is sound sensitive; anything above a whisper will set it off.

The second is temperature-sensitive. Even the body heat of an unauthorized person inside the Piggy can trigger the alarm if the temperature rises just a single degree. And that temperature is controlled by an air conditioning vent 30 feet above the Piggy's floor. That vent is guarded by a laser net.

The third one is on the floor, and it's pressure sensitive. Just the slightest increase in weight will set it off. And any of these systems, if set off, will trigger an automatic lockdown. Now believe me when I tell you, gentlemen, that all 3 systems, are state of the art.

We must combine our forces! We must use our monkey skills! Hell, we got out of that barrel, didn't we?

I was wondering the same thing... What happened to Walmazan!!

I'm the root of all that's evil, yeah, but you can call me cookie.

Hmmm.... Not much discussion either.

Usually when there's foul play there's a bunch of discussion about it.

Weird.

The sales for Sunday are accurate. It was up throughout the day... we're not sure why but the on-going sale this morning turned on and then off a couple of minutes after going up. It should be back up now.

I think it should speak volumes that the lowest selling derby tee ever is a Walmazan. Much the same way the two highest selling derby tees are a tjost and a haxrox.

Woot needs a huge internal makeover. Walmazan brings 100% of what wooters claim to like in a tee every week. His style is inarguably cute, his concepts are easy to understand, his color schemes are appealing, and you'd be hard pressed to find someone who seems more honestly good-natured (though 'round these parts, fake ass-kissers are quite plentiful). Yet when he wins, he regularly sells poorly. Why? The only thing I can think of is that he has his own style. He's not the only one using someone else's horrible style. He isn't so bland he could be mistaken for anyone. He does distinctly walmazany work. And his concepts, while simple, are not SIMPLE. Usually they're easy to read, but also usually, they're somewhere outside the box while also making sense.

And yet Walmazan gets the dubious honor of being the lowest selling derby winner. And yet woot refuses to admit that there is something terribly wrong with their site. Personally, were I Wences, I'd be proud to garner that distinction after seeing how generic the stuff that sticks around tends to be.

I totally agree. If only there were some kind of motivations or external factors that they could use to run their business better. If only there were some way that people-- maybe even people that visit the site-- could give incentive to Woot to run their business one way, as opposed to another.

Alas, these things are a mystery that can never be solved.

Unless you're trying to sarcastically note that "making money = running a site correctly", which would make you worthless to listen to, there IS a basic obvious incentive.

The people who would buy worthwhile shirts have long since left this site. Anyone who has paid three shreds of attention to this site would know this. So if the site started being proactive in bringing GOOD work in, more customers would frequent the site that WANT good work. Woot has millions of registered users, and hasn't even scratched 5% of a million on any one shirt, even with one approaching three years of chart time. How many of those users no longer check shirtside because everything here is so childish? How many don't check woot at all because of that? How many fans of sites with a better pedigree have missed great tees because the average woot tee isn't worth looking at? I know for a fact that I'd never know a good tee was printed at other sites with even worse track records without being told by someone. Make it worthwhile for people with a sense of diversity to check in, and the sales will improve on diverse work. the same 10,000 people will all buy the same exact boring generic trash. People who want something good have their own taste. 100 good tees will not sell as well per tee, but it will bring in far more different customers, which in the long run is far more important. Every one of those generic buyers will still buy the occasional non-crap design, and if not, will still buy the trash being sold during woot-offs. The important thing is to bring people in who find worth in the art being put together, and the only way to do that is to improve what is being offered.

Or, we could watch people like Walmazan suffer while people with zero talent continually prosper. That is DEFINITELY not broken!
