I'm pretty sure this artist ripped off that guy who did Impostor.

You mean we haven't seen penguins playing a game of "one of these things is not like the other" on a shirt before? No way.

Wow. Apparently even the Woot Write-up Guy thinks ramyb has jumped the shark.

Relative to anyone who actually uses the iPod earbuds, a Walkman-user is definitely cool. Those buds are so bad.

If a Walkman is cooler than an iPod, then how cool does that make a phonograph?

On a more serious note, woot approves (I assume) the write ups. If woot is of the opinion that this shirt is too similar or derivative of Impostor...why the f didn't they just reject it to begin with?

For those of you who might of missed it, the artist bio with the line up is typically preceeded by the more explicit form of "darned."

Which may also imply that the arist sold his soul to get this print.

Did that middle penguin just say radical? I thought we agreed that nobody was to say that word ever again.

Serious question: Biologically, are penguins even able to do that mohawk thing? I didn't picture their feathers being that long or sculptable.

The write-up was indeed funny. It's also frustrating that it more or less confirms that the "similar shirts exist" rule has absolutely no rhyme nor reason to its application.

Totes different. The penguin is clearly not a dryad.

Tip: Next derby, vote for every shirt in the fog but this one for an equivalent -1 vote. I say this because we all know this will happen again.

I can't tell if this writeup is indicative of an internal struggle, or just an honest commitment to democracy over personal beliefs?

I like to think it's the latter. Stay strong, Woot, I've got your back.

Also, note how the two tees linked were made by his girlfriend.

This is what happens when you forget to ban Penguins!

Next derby please just ban animals all-together to get a really challenging and fun derby.

... Imposter was a collaboration by ramyb and sekiyoku. Just fyi.

Ramyb probably jumped the shark a little with this either way.

Stupidity rules the foundation of our lives; it just means that you gotta move on and deal with the stupidity of it all.

The outline with one taller penguin in the middle reminds me of something - is there a hidden message?

Wear this shirt: On the days when the other shirt that’s exactly like it is in the wash.



oh you woot writers...you make me smile and wash my frustration away with your witty repartee. i <3 you.

Friday - the day to rejoice that the weekend is soon here! Then to see this. How disappointing when so many other designs were refreshingly more original.

Perhaps the legions of voters who purport to like this style really do not care if their friends/family/co-workers think they are wearing the same shirt day in and day out.

The bright spot on shirt.woot today is the write up. A glimmer of hope that the truth is out there. somewhere.

Wow, I never ever would have thought of that one as being similar at all. You haters go a bit too far sometimes.

True, especially since they've done it before.

Maybe they let it fly only so they could do this little write-up and make him feel as unwelcome as possible so that he stops submitting.

In my rage I didn't read the shirt description. It made me happier. I suggest everyone read it and enjoy it.

I like how the one rabbit stands out from the others. He really is the cool rabbit.

That writeup was hilarious.

I'm curious to see how many actually sell. Will people actually buy it, or do they just vote for the cutesy design and move on along?
