In fact, check out our forums and you’ll probably find some of those people right now! Maybe even on the I need a lift!!

I laughed. It's like Woot has a crystal ball, or something.



I laughed too, especially when I got to the line about English majors...I hadn't even noticed the math...

But the limes pair better with the other thing British sailors were known to enjoy: Rum.

Lemons work better. They have more vitamin C.

Now you know. Let's make sure future pie(rate) charts are free of this senseless blight.

The Other 9% is for "AYE AYE!. . . .wait. . . .make that one Aye."

So... what's the embedded math joke? Is there really a joke or just that the numbers don't add up (ha)?

Given its history, woot clearly has a zombie bias. I'm surprised they're offering this pirate shirt at all. Though, come to think of it, the numbers in the chart are skewed and fudged with... it's a conspiracy!

This is definitely off. Rum should be at least 50%.

"Don't buy this shirt" has never rung so true. English major here, didn't add, missed the whole joke, alerted belatedly by the comments.

21% rum? Wouldn't that give our pirate a BAC of DEAD?

Pirate humor + Chart humor (with a hidden math joke as well) + an excellent graphic design = First time shirt buyer.

this shirt rocks, love that it doesn't add up to 100 at first thought.

The only thing this shirt would be good for is to identify Zaphod Beeblebroxs that are spending time adding numbers on my shirt rather than paying attention to the conversation we are having.


Also, the eye patch joke isn't get-able unless you are one of the previously mentioned Zaphod Beeblebroxs that would actually stare at a persons chest long enough to do the math.

If you have to reach that hard to tell a joke on a t-shirt, you are failing.


But,but,but,but it's Pirates! Everybody love pirates!

Edit: It took two separate people to make this?

9% is an appropriate amount to be missing due to loss of hand, leg and eye. The replacement materials hardly makes up for the lack of body parts. I deem this pie chart to be completely arrrcurate.

But the area of the eyepatch isn't 9% -- granted being 2 different shapes makes it harder to judge, but there is no way the area of the patch is more than double the area of scurvy.

creativehack wrote:9% missing
"i" is the ninth letter
i = eye

Patch = to fill

therefore:
eye patch fills in the missing value

It is a simple case of pirate math people



Thanks for the explanation - doesn't seem like much of a math "joke" though. If it takes that long to explain, then it's probably not that funny.

I just don't see people going, "OH, OH, OH, 'I' is the ninth letter of the alphabet and 9% is missing and it's an "I"-patch! That is toooo funny." No, they'll roll their eyes and think that the person wearing it is trying entirely too hard. Would have been better to just say Pirates suck at math. Or better yet, nix the un-funny math "joke" and re-number the pieces of pie to more closely align with their proportional size. The pirate aspects are what make it funny and worth buying -- the math aspect is such a stretch it's s-t-u-p-EYE-d.

Maybe the percentages are off because of the subtle difference between this circle's area and that of a normal circle. It was probably a simple case of pi(arrr)squared.

I went there. Still not a fan of the shirt, sadly. I want to like it. :-(

Umm
I made that stuff up, I have no connection to the artists that created the design and only found an obscure connection which (I'm pretty confident) was never their intention

Neither did I! I had to read the forum comments to get it. I probably shouldn't buy this shirt.
