 We asked you guys to spring out your most springy designs in celebration of the Northern hemisphere sloughing off the frozen dandruff of winter and putting on its Sunday best for the upcoming burst of warmth, light, and life that is Spring. Here are the designs that didn't quite make the cut for voters, but which our Art Directors couldn't resist:

 

Dirt Buggies

by Spiritgreen

It becomes much more sinister when you realize his bike is made of bugs and this is pretty much slave labor.

 

Eyedropper Tool

by kaleidoscopicfailure

Fun fact: the hummingbird has no sense of smell. Probably from sticking its nose in flowers all day and burning out its olfactory nerves.

 

Rekindled

by Radscoolian

You heard it from Radscoolian, kids. Go out and ignite all the trees near YOUR home today!

 

Secret Recipe

by nblottie

FALSE. Peep chicks are kept confined in tight cages and force fed marshmallow fluff through a tube extending directly into their stomachs.

 

Impending Doom

by patrickspens

Man, he just lands on your arm and rubs it in like that? Birds are a^%holes.

 

Sneaky Thief

by ochopika

Sneaky? What do you mean sneaky? IT'S RIGHT THERE!

 

spring symphonia

by kharmazero

Yeah, it looks all creative until you realize it's the sheet music for kharmazero's mating call.

 

Spring Struck

by werewolfskippy

We're finding out every day that plants are more devious than we thought.

 

Veg of the Day

by blustar

"I'll admit, it really didn't put up much of a fight."

 

Springtime is for lovers

by lucky1988

I know it's supposed to be cute or whatever, but all I can picture is the incredibly intense stench of old urine.

 

 

That's all for this round, folks! Check back at our next Double-Take Derby for your chance to vote on these and more designs, but until then, scratch your voting itch by checking out our current Derby!

Thanks Woot! Though picturing your description of how peeps are made in my head will disturb me for the rest of the day.

I was (and am still) lobbying for Squirrelmorphosis. It would have lined your pockets with gold, Woot.

Glad to see Veg of the Day on there though. It was my second favorite.

Yeah, so there's that...

The stench of old pee pee is rivaled by the aroma of bunny pellet poo. Cheers missmelis and cptgone! Also thanks for the HM woot!

Ah bunny poo...pellets go in, pellets come out. They sure are amazing creatures, those bunnies.

Maybe I'm crazy, but I thought I'd read something somewhere recently that you were going to make the "honorable mention" shirts available for purchase (for more than the awesome $12 daily) on the Monday after the derby weekend. I am all for it! I would have bought the symphonia one just now if you had.

Wasn't the mention of honor set of shirts done for previous derbies (e.g. not inclusive of the one word derby)? If so, then tabbyfoo may not have missed symphonia after all. Do you know what regularity is planned for the mention of honor shirt sales?

That's correct! Symphonia could very well be a winner in the next double-take derby or it could be an editor's choice. Last week was the first time they did the "mentions of honor" sale. I don't know if they'll do it again but that would be cool.
