Is it too soon to start a pool for how long this sticks around the reckoning? Or how long it'll keep the top spot?

We didn't even get a shot at it. Damn us and our normal sleeping habits.

This would have been sweet to go with Portal 2 that I'm getting today.

Guess I'll just use my free code and get it from the reckoning.

This is the fastest sellout I have ever seen on this site. It was the most perfectly timed shirt idea, front and back print, and a mid-week print from a well-known site artist. This shirt is the perfect storm, and you can expect it in the Reckoning for a long, long time. This is Back To The Future worthy Reckoning timeline we're talking about here.

34 woots for shirts, most recent: 10/23/12: Fresh Cake Remix (L); 9/22/10 - iHome Optical Netbook Mouse; 7/12/10 - Woot Off Lights; 5/26/10 - Jolly Roger Floor Mat; 11/23/09 - Memorex 720p HD Mini Camcorder; 3/23/09 - iRobot Roomba 535 Robotic Vacuum

So does that mean because I sleep normal hours, I have to pay the extra $5? DAMN! Good thing I have a job - which is why I have to sleep... sigh.

You guys did this with the last popular shirt. Then threw it on the reckoning for $5 more plus shipping the next day.

For a "deals" site you sure do pull some dirty.

why do i have a feeling they purposely made less than the normal amount available for sale for this one so we can pay more at reckoning

Hopefully it'll be on the reckoning page to buy later?

|Something like Doom or Quake or even| |Joust, those are games we could all play in a||warehouse if we really wanted to.

But when you're playing a game that literally||is based around the idea that you can make a hole in||the game... man. That's something that you can only do||in the computer. How could you walk through a warehouse||wall and then fall through the ceiling in the real world?|

$21.95 Shipping....

It'll be $15 tomorrow on the reckoning.

I ponder if Woot knew this would sell out fast and decided to limit the initial quantity to maximize profits on day 2+.

I just hope it sticks around till the next Woot-Off Shirt Detour.

Same as every other shirt.

Okay, I seriously can't be the only person who saw Portal and said, "Oh neat, another game like Narbacular Drop." It was nice to see those guys get a break like that.

9am sold-out already!?!?!? Congrats to the shirt maker and well done to Woot for timing the release so perfectly.

My copy of Portal 2 should be coming from Amazon any day now, in the meantime I'll just have some more of this delicious and moist cake.

I've never played Portal. What's the point of the game? Running around jumping through holes you make in the walls? Seems like it would get old fast.

I'm probably missing a reference somewhere...



The reference is "The cake is a lie" so in this case "The cheese is a Lie(derkranz)"

I didn't see anyone else answer this, so if I'm repeating, all apologies...

This particular cheese was chosen solely because the first three letters in its name are l-i-e, or "lie". In the video game Portal, the insane supercomputer promises the player cake at the end of "testing". However, a graffito the player finds later (presumably scrawled by a prior "testee") claims that "the cake is a lie". This phrase has reached meme status in gamer circles.

The cake is a lie.
The cheese is a Liederkranz.

Why not visit Portal's Wikipedia entry to see what's the point:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portal_%28video_game%29#Awards

The plot is very clever, witty, simple/straight-forward, and downright brilliant.

This will be on sale (like every woot shirt) in the Reckoning starting tomorrow, for as long as it remains popular.

However, it will be $5 higher.
