Yeah, when the banhammer went down on turtles, I noticed that penguins hadn't been on the list either, so I kind of saw something like this coming. I just don't know how many shirts someone can design of penguins standing around doing something. It's just not very original.

I think this is a very important point to make. Many of us dislike Ramy's designs, but honestly I couldn't care less if he decided to produce them himself on his own website. One would think with the number of derbies he's won he'd have the capital to start it up, and considering his number of fans I doubt he'd have problem sustaining it. The issue isn't his designs alone, it's that they're (to us) subpar entries in a derby that we'd hope would produce original, thoughtful, and interesting t-shirts, not just more bunnies/turtles/penguins.
