$0We gave you a week's notice to get your ideas together, so the announcement should come as no surprise. For anyone who DID miss our preview, this week we're right back in the Shirt.Woot wheelhouse with food that's taken on a life of its own. If history is any indication, probably with cute button eyes and a smile, too. So go to town! Show us cupcakes jogging to burn some calories, salmon filets...uh, doing something, and hotdogs hurling down hallways. Wait. Maybe not that last one. $0 $0Text and pop culture references are allowed. But no Star Wars.$0

Disregard the No Text part. Text is allowed, as is pop culture. No Star Wars though. I'll see if I can get that updated.

LOL I really suck at this theme. Foood! Acting like people! Inconceivable! I have one idea finished but I'm not sure about it... at least I did a ton of other RL stuff this week. =/ Back to struggling.

Ah good good, I was about to cry about the no text rule. I have seen a lot of people start their entries and include text. I'd hate to see a rash of Woot artists on their hands and knees in despair @_@. Thanks, Travis!

I can't wait for the start of this derby :D. I expect some of the comical masterminds to be strong this go round!

All derbies will be #201 from here on out. Our Freemason bosses won't let us use numbers past 201.

I'll go ahead and post this here for more feedback. I've considered taking advice and adding more cookies, but I kind of like the design being just about Samoas (or Caramel DeLights), because they're the ones with the right to strut!

It's been great having the week to work on this. I have a couple of designs that I'm happy with (after a lot of changes!).

Gonna be a crazy competitive, fuuuun derby!

This is my 1st:





I will save my 2nd entry until tomorrow so it can be a horrible, horrible surprise. :-p

I would have been happy with No Text. Cute food and pop culture is already so sugary without the text frosting...

I had to go back and check last week's topic when I saw 'no text'. Don't scare me like that!

Anyway, I was very appreciative to have the derby theme heads-up. Here's what I whipped up over the weekend:

Don't submit! It's a hiccup (one of many lately). The derby won't be active till tomorrow as usual.

EDIT: It should be fixed now, with last week's derby up as it should be.

Looks like it's fixed. That's two heart attacks narrowly averted

As for text, I think I'd always prefer no text, but the bigger issue was that they originally said text was allowed, and lots of us designed accordingly. But all's fixed and all's well with the world.

You know, the more people complain about cute food, the more I imagine foie gras soldiers goose-stepping through Paris. I really hope "anthropomorphic" isn't a synonym for "cute," but I'm afraid it's going to be.

Bad ideas free; brilliant ideas by derangement.

That's a nice little hope. It will be 90% cute. And I will admit -- I will NOT be helping matters with my entries.

I like this. I was thinking Bacon something... but this beats what I had planned.

Thanks. This is my second time around with this one though... my first one came off as more disturbing to people.

That's a lot of red.... Are you a GrannySmith-ist?

Hmm, it might be nice to see the slender apple in green. It would help her stand out even more :D. Great concept, Naolito!
