I can't believe this shirt fell out of the fog

I really hope it benefits from a surge of late votes because it deserves to be printed. The colouring is wonderful - art, shirt, everything. I love it.

Good luck, coffeybean!

The flaming brown bag would have been great! There is also the shaving cream (or even spray paint if you want to get really mean). Saran wrap is always a classic to use on cars. It would have been great to see the lawn flamingo too. Those are just a few ideas if you ever want to modify and try again. I give you massive awesome points for the concept though. Love it!

Re:Stay dead Get back in your grave



I definitely agree, the final change I say it should have it death actually saying "Stay dead!" and maybe make the motion of the scythe a little more obvious. Then I'd love to have this shirt. Awesome idea!

Among many reasons why I would never wear this shirt...
The mouth is a full on camel toe. I can't un-see it.

This was one of the first two shirts I voted for this derby, and may well be my favorite. It is hilarious! S.M. Writes the best episodes, and the Angels are my fave race! I really really hope this gets made!!!!!

I mentioned the idea to one of the other volunteers yesterday, and she was all for it. Now I need to get the staff on board! We got a passel of 3-week-old black kittens the other day & they're Wishful, Willful, Whisper, and some other W names.

Those are sweet names too. Though willfull might make me think twice;)
That's great the volunteer was all for it... hope the staff goes for it and the cute naming helps the black kitties find good homes! I keep thinking about what you wrote about them getting adopted last...really sad!

PS. Not that I advise these as names, but my black kitten in the shelter was named 'Cairo' (since changed), her black and white sister was named 'Barcelona' (also changed), and another sister 'Prague'(adopted by someone else).

No, this is what happens to any cookies that Santa didn't finish the year before.

Ummm…. It didn’t really take a lot of time… Believe me, I am not a math nerd (more of a math nerd groupie) but I can handle simple addition, multiplication by 2, and “guessing”. So current numbers (thanks Narkcake):

Narfcake wrote:In the current reckoning ...
- Couldn’t Care Less Bear, 2nd place in the derby, 1002 votes, 4097 sales and counting.
- Cell Division, 30th place in the DT derby, 306 votes, 5090 sales and counting.
- Morning Powerup, 2nd place in the derby, 690 votes, 6778 sales and counting.

Recently reckoned ...
- I’m Just Doing My Job, 3rd place in the derby, 963 votes, 2078 sold.
- Substitute Teacher, 2nd place in the derby, 803 votes, 4268 sold.
- Red Revenge, 3rd place in the derby, 823 votes, 3847 sold.
- Funny Things are Everywhere, 1st place in the derby, 1149 votes, 5720 sold.
- Seasons, 1st place in the derby, 942 votes, 4591 sold.
- Aztec Sunset, 1st place in the derby, 854 votes, 6013 sold.

Those are the numbers.




If I remember Narfcakes calculations for Binge correctly, an artist gets $1000 commission for every derby win and $2 per shirt except for shirts sold on the day it premiers and during woot-offs. As previously stated, I’m not a math nerd but even doing this in the laziest possible way... Let’s just assume that each shirt sold a total of 1000 on the day it premiered and subsequent woot-offs combined (reasonable because none of the shirts listed has really huge sales). So subtract 1000 from each of the total sales numbers and add the result. I got 33,482 shirts x $2 = $66,964. And that’s not counting the commission for each of the 9 shirts listed or whatever is earned during a woot-off, so that is probably a conservative number. And that’s for shirts appearing in the last 6 months (8 months?) reckonings. Nope, that didn’t take long at all 

And don’t lump me with the haters – I have consistently said that I believe that Ramy is incredibly talented, that he knows what will sell… I even called him a marketing genius once. And yes, I’ve seen some pretty nit-picky complaints about his designs (someone didn’t like that Cell Divisions arms are coming out of where the ears would be - it’s a cell!!!) But let’s look at Red Revenge – on an otherwise anatomically correct drawing of a woman, one foot is turned out to the side at a 90 degree angle but the knee of that same leg is facing forward. That’s as lazy as my math!!

I was trying to make the point that, even though the commodity is “artistic talent”, Ramy is a professional. If I hire a professional to install new cupboards in my kitchen I expect a polished, professional looking finished product; if I hire the guy next door because I like him and he’s giving me a good deal, I will accept a little less. I don’t own any Ramy shirts because (personally) I don’t think he is putting out professional level work.

Full disclosure: I’m in one of those social services field and I tend to look at things from that perspective. Ramy is young and incredibly talented and making some pretty good money, but if his derby submissions are any indication he is not feeling any incentive to grow and learn. I don’t presume to know what he is capable of and maybe Woot is just a pass-time to him while he pursues greater goals (hell, Renee Zellweger waited tables in a topless bar while she was attending UT) but I think it’s a shame that his flock of voters “enables” him so that he stalls out at just “really good”.

Totally, I mean why should the Halloween derby be about Halloween? I should be able to buy a cute bunny shirt in every derby no matter what. I know that Halloween comes only once a year, but it's just too much.

I was thinking the same thing! This shirt would be great to sell to animal rescues. I know several people at mine would wear this!
