Thank you Spiritgreen, collinvh, loveengrey. It would be great to see this printed, although unfortunately it doesn't look likely at all.

Wow I was not expecting this design to drop out of the fog! The bottom half of the contenders are all really close in votes I guess. So sad to see it lose cause I really wanted this one.

Bilyum it up all day long!

Another of Ramyb's "one of these things is not like the others" shirts?? NEVER saw that coming!

/end sarcasm

Ramyb supporters flame me if you must, but I just can't understand how this same tired concept sells almost every time.

I can't help thinking that if all his shirts were lined up and sold together at a website, (instead of spread out derby-to-derby as done here) the sheer mass of shirts with the same joke and same rabbits/turtles/penguins/etc would be considered laughable by most visitors.

I don't really understand this shirt. Misses are not tracked on the same part of the board as your ships in battleship, and you would have no reason to keep track of your opponent's misses.

Happy Birthday is very much NOT in the public domain.

Re: Inspired by Against The Sky



Hands down, without a doubt, and absolutely my favourite in this derby. Heck, my favourite design since Rain, Rain Go Away.
I'd buy two, but I don't see this picking up enough momentum by tomorrow.

Welp, there's always EC or other sites. ;)

I don't usually have much to say, so words from me mean you're doing something very right.

Riiiiiiight. Because in music, the same pop crap never sells. In movies, the same formulaic plot never sells. There aren't 12 police procedurals available on prime-time TV. There aren't a half-dozen "talent" shows with essentially the same format. The Simpsons hasn't run for over 20 years (or Seinfeld for 9) with the exact same characters.

What planet do you actually live on, and when do you go back?

You seriously can't think of anything that distinguishes those designs? "Oh, they have the same characters, and I can reduce them to a single descriptive phrase, therefore I must treat them as identical". Some people might buy all three just because they have cute penguins on them, or because ramyb is, like, their favoritest artist, evar... But I think someone who'd buy "Inspired by Taking Flight" would be far less likely to own "Impostor", because "Impostor" isn't "edgy" enough. Someone who'd buy "Cooler Than You" would have a stronger sense of individuality than someone who'd buy "Impostor". And so on.

You see "odd man out". I see:

"Impostor" wants to fit in.
"Cooler Than You" wants to stand out.
"Taking Flight" is a gull-murdering psychopath.

For that matter, "Taking Flight" has two "odd men out": The horrified penguin on the right is "different" because he's the only one of the four who doesn't think it's giggle-worthy. I suppose that means that it doesn't actually fit your "one of these things is not like the others" reduction...maybe "some of these things are similar and some are less-similar than the similar things but not really similar to each other"...guess that doesn't roll off the tongue as easily.

Full disclosure: as I've said before, I don't tend to vote for ramyb and don't consider myself specifically to be a supporter of his. These observations apply just as readily to patrickspens ("Acquired Taste" & "If I Only Had a Brain"), or the-as-yet-to-be-called-out-on-it-rather-than-praised rogerrogerroger and his moustaches.

If it manages to print on a different site since some people here a little too uptight, someone PLEASE let me know (I'm lookin at YOU ramy!).



This shirt is terrible, I just don't think pointing the pedo finger at it is appropriate.

There was some snarkage about "Acquired Taste" and "If I Only Had a Brain" having the "same" zombie characters in them (I think some people even earned "quality posts" for that), even though the tableaux and thematic elements were completely different.

On the other side of the coin, in this most recent derby, rogerrogerroger actually got praised by several people for recurring his characters (and/or their fabulous moustaches).

Just a little hard to catch the Zeitgeist around here.

Yeah, i caught the politick, was just wondering why it was that some folks get a pass. No one seems to grief Kev about his underbite-bot (underbot?) either.
