I ain't no lawyer or nuthin...

But this shouldn't be a problem. This shirt does not "spell" the word 'bazinga' in any language. It's merely a random string of symbols, special (not standard) characters, and a few English letters which, when arranged in that order, resemble that word.

I strongly disagree, the movies omitted and changed many great parts of the book. (Not books, as Lord of the Rings is one novel, needlessly split into three volumes) They even excluded the entire 2nd to last chapter of the book, which offered the resolution to the entire narrative, due to "time constraints".
That, along with countless examples of poorly written dialogue, needless omissions (Tom Bombadil, Glorfindel), and some blatantly unnecessary character alterations (Faramir being a weak-willed jerk, the Ents being oblivious, Elrond's apparent distrust in Aragorn [He raised him, and they're related for Eru's sake!], and Arwen becoming a relevant, yet poorly developed, character for the sake of a cheap romance story)I think Tolkien's novel is far superior to Peter Jackson's adaptions. Also, we had to wait for months to get the true (Extended) editions of the movies, which though better than the theatricals, still excluded all sorts of goodness I had hoped for.
Nevertheless, I did thoroughly enjoy the movie trilogy, and plan on seeing both movies of the Hobbit duology at midnight.

Oh, hello there! I love you. Are you my long lost twin sibling? Because I feel exactly the same way about the treatment of the book/movies--albeit more... vehemently and with lots more cursing. High five, sister/brother of the true Tolkien spirit!

In for one - but hey Woot staff, you should know that I would have bought more than one for friends, but they have...how can I say this delicately...larger bust lines than can fit in an American Apparel XL and be worn outdoors without receiving inappropriate calls. (And too bad for your sales - they're not that type of girl.)

Please consider providing larger sizes for the women's cut shirts.

If it stays in print for a while, they will run out of the AA blanks and switch to Anvil. The Anvil women's sizes are significantly larger. It's worth checking back once a week (on Sunday, before the Reckoning) to see if they've switched over yet.

Yeah, the standard free shipping does take a little longer, but it's free so that's good, right?

Here's some info from the FAQ on shipping times. We do offer the overnight option for $5 if you're in a hurry to get the shirt.

I love the shirt. Be careful with the sizing though... I bought a woman's large (my size) and it is very small...... probably a medium.

Yeah. Woot in still in the transition phase from the old made-in-the-USA shirts to the newer made-in-Honduras-or-Nicaragua shirts ... and the sizing is way different between the two.

We just got our "Bazinga" shirts...my son (11) loves it and his sister(21) tried to snag mine.(She got the gecko ninja shirt and the zombie shirts). I ordered a man's size small for my son. Although the USA made shirts fit him better, the Anvil works. It is long but still works for him.
(NOTE TO WOOT - We want the old shirt brand back!)
The kid sizes were too short on him and very boxy, this worsened after washing. He is tall and slender (normally wears size 12 slim)in case this helps anyone for their own future sizing. Mine is ladies xl which will be comfortably loose even after washing. I read the Anvil's are way bigger. Please no! When you have a slender build with natural curves it is way hard to find clothes that fit well. Manufacturers seem to equate small size with short height (pants)or worse small size means wide body (tops). Woot remember- nerd body shape typically runs towards the tall, slender, willowy build, not wide, short and muscular! I don't care if the mathematical formula used isn't correct - the shirt makes us laugh and that is a good thing!

I have the same problem! I just got mine out of the mail and am so disappointed! I had previously ordered the READ shirt in WL and it is nice and roomy - love it! I ordered this in WL and I'm not sure my 12 year old son can wear it!!

Size up if you're busty!

Normally a women's large fits me loosely. I bought this shirt in a large, but it fits like a women's medium. I feel like my "Bazinga!" should say "Boobzinga!" Definitely snug over the chest area - which may or may not be a good thing. Fits fine everywhere else.

Other than that, love it. Great colour, comfy, geeky-cute.

I keep wanting to give this show another try. I feel I should enjoy it, however, the few times I've watched it, it all seemed like stereotypical nerd jokes.

I haven't purchased from shirt.woot for sometime. And now I wish I hadn't bought this shirt. I love the design and the color but the new fit and substandard quality of the fabric makes this product far inferior to previous purchases at shirt.woot.
Please, Powers that Be, return us to a higher quality better fitting shirt.

Not sure of the quality and that Bazinga t-shirt caught my eye. Didn't pull the trigger on this one and missed the deal.

Is it really that bad? Does it lose it's color?

The show is horrible. The Big Bang Theory is a show targeted towards psuedo-intellects who are just jumping on the bandwagon to Nerd/Geek "culture" or lack there of. The worst part is it doesn't even offer a realistic interpretation of this culture and instead is this disgusting cringe-worthy manifestation of some Hollywood producer's idea of what it is to be a nerd. Almost as bad is that it has the opportunity to be completely educational, but it gives this skewed fantasy world that is honestly quite unsettling.

I could brush this all aside if the show was actually funny, but SPOILER: It isn't. In fact the humor is SO unfunny that instead it just blares a laugh track whenever a "joke" is told. It's fairly common knowledge that other people laughing makes you laugh, as laughing is a social experience. This however is no excuse to replace actual jokes with a laugh track. It's almost as if they're basing what nerd culture is on from sites like Reddit. It's the same sort of assembly line process of using "Memes" to replace humor by just pasting a giant "YOU LAUGH HERE" sticker onto whatever you've created.

It honestly is just a giant scheme on playing off of uneducated people who are so brainwashed that they just laugh at anything they're told to.

Yes, I'm angry.

Now that I have taken the time to watch w/o laugh track, the show I once thought was pretty damn funny now is not so funny. Wonder how many other shows this holds true with?

here is my story on the awesome power of the Bazinga! (this is just copied and pasted from my FB but all of it happened because i was wearing my Bazinga shirt!)

ok so here what happened last night (4th of july 2012) it went from nearly getting stabbed to one the the most epic nights of my life.... i went to the "summerland" tour which had marcy playground, lit, gin blossom, sugar ray, and everclear. i was really only there for the 1st two but hey it was free. i got there early enough to get right up front. i start talking to a group of people general chit chat. and other group comes about 10-20 minutes later and a few of them (one guy in particular) wanted to be right up front where we are. the show hadn't even started yet (and ended up not starting for over another hour) but they were getting pushy so a little hostility arouse. i can handle pushing its a concert but the aforementioned guy pulled out and checked a little knife he had snuck in with him. it was only an inch or 2 long but i dont play once i saw that it was done. i called security and got him bounced. i forgot to mention he was only like 18-19 want to be thug... unfortunately they let him back in he makes his way back and starts popping off and pretending he cant hear me such and so on. he motions to another guy in the crowd and nods his head to me so i get ready to get jumped... but i have my eye on them and there the kind who dont like a fair fight so they dont try anything. marcy is first, then lit ( i got a guitar pic from them!), then gin blossoms, in between each artist there is a little break and i turn around to talk to my group and this guy keeps trying to buff up make gestures and act tough. then sugar ray comes on and thats when my night becomes epic! half way through his show he says "this is the point where we do something a little interesting" he points strait to me and says "you in the blue shirt (bazinga!) come up here!". holy salt water! then he calls another kid up and says "ok now we are going to have a karaoke competition"..... crap! im in front of thousands of people and for those of you who havnt heard me sing i cant carry a tune in a bucket! but beastie boys "you got to fight" comes on and some how i just get in the zone! in front of 3-5000 people i ROCK!!!! i jumped around, fist pumped, and just got the crowd going crazy!!!! he moves me side stage and the other kid come up... poor, poor kid was too nervous! the put on black eye pea's "i got a feeling" and he just freezes no singing at all, but in his defense when i was his age i prob would have to! it was suppose to be a competition but mark said because it was the 4th we both win ( i got another pick and a sugar ray t-shirt), BUT he held his hands up for an audience judge anyways. over the kid, screaming in moderation. over me, THE CROWD GOES NUTS!!!! Ocean Mussel Goodness!!!! i have enough endorphin's and adrenaline pumping through my system still to last me a week! as im being led of stage i think " o crap this would have been a perfect time to tell hundreds of beautiful Latinas that im single" ;p o well. make my way back through the crowd and the guy is still there. he couldn't even give me props just started hating even more! but i wanst about to let that or anything bring me down off my cloud! i moved off trying to find out if the video they were pumping to the screens was being recorded. as i walk through the crowd its all high fives, fist pumps, and just general admiration. i loved it! for my 15 minutes of fame i couldnt have asked for more, except maybe a tape turns out they were not recording....
