Today's shirt write up seems a little on the cynical side.

Anyone else feeling that?

This shirt is also for those of you who bought the last shirt.woot ... which happens to be by the same artist too.

Everyone loves Monty Python references. I like the mash-up, it had GMV!

And yes, the end of the write seemed a bit cynical. My sarcasm detector is on the fritz.

Congrats lucky!

My brother loves monopoly but hates monty python. Do you think he would like this?

I get the Monty Python and Monopoly references, but is the "Not a snowball's chance" a reference to anything? (I know that not everything HAS to be a reference to something else - I would just like the shirt better without that part.)

It's a Big Bang Theory reference, "not a Snowball's chance in a CAT scanner."

Here's the other half of the reference, for those of you who aren't into board games or have just crawled out from under a rock to see what today's woot shirt is:

That shirt just caused me to replicate the storyline too gave It, except when I finally got my 19 y o son to look at it and be able to snarkily say something like "Your old, get out and call someone who cares about your stupid Woot stuff". Which is almost what happened.
Except the kid seems to think 420 is to be celebrated daily and not only did I get no help, I am now split between being pissed or jealous, and I am to relaxed to make any decision at all, but after the haze cleared I got the shirt joke. I'm hungry (I am going to eat the rest of the salted caramels) , thanks Woot.

Whoops I did it again : /

This would have been perfect for the description. They should hire you.

I can't think of a reason to make a fictional account of someone missing a reference this blatant... so I have to wonder if someone at the woot office embarrassed themselves (now very publicly) by missing this one.

I'm highly depressed right now. Woot just summed up my life in one little sentence:

This shirt tells the world: “Yeah, I didn’t really get it either, but I can’t be trusted with money.”

Um, but I did get it right away. It is obvious. I know not what the write up is talking about. I shall show distain to anyone who does not get it when I wear it (probably not really).

Also, I am very happy to see it in first place, because "Yay, Monty Python!" *off to buy*

A clever reference to monopoly is reason enough for me to buy this sucker.

Eh, I didn't get the reference when I first saw this in the Derby fog, although I was able to put it together from the comments in the thread. There are plenty of things that I know a lot about and plenty of things that I don't know anything about; why would I be embarrassed that I don't know something?

I'm pretty sure that life stops being fun when we stop being exposed to new things, and I'm grateful to woot for expanding my knowledge of pop culture.

lol i should have remembered there was a derby this week- it's been finals all the way

however, I think I absolutely LOVE this shirt out of all the ones i saw in the fog, so i'm pretty excited.

but I do have a question about the shirts Woot! has been using. Are they still using the shirts that were um, generously sized? (at least for the women's sizes) or are they back to using the older, more fitted tees?

I recently ordered a couple shirts and they were all in that somewhat awkward half-size-too-big thing (like they needed to be taken in below the chest). You know, that new shirt they were using?

but then one of the latest shirts i ordered came in a style more similar to the 'old' fitted tees for women.

So I'm a little confused- I can't tell where to tell, but I've been trying to take the measurements based on the chest (since that's all they give to work with) which of course makes it awkward to size.

Woot still has some of the old, more fitted shirts in their warehouse, so some designs are printing on the older, more fitted blank shirts, and some are printing on a newer, larger blank shirts. There's three ways to tell: if you look at the sizing chart, Anvil (new, larger) sizes have measurements in whole numbers and it will say "made in Honduras/Nicaragua" on the bottom of the sizing chart; AA (older, smaller) sizes have measurements in weird fractions (3/8th, 5/16th) and the bottom of the sizing chart will say "made in USA." Be careful to look for men's/women's/kids, because some shirts - like today's - will print on AA for one and Anvil for others. If you look at the sizing chart for today's shirt, you'll see that it's printing on AA (more fitted) in women's sizes and Anvil (larger) in men's and kids'.

Plus, we're keeping a post in the Reckoning thread updated on a daily basis. It's always a good idea to double-check the sizing chart for each individual shirt before purchasing, but that list is generally accurate unless woot has switched a shirt over within the past 12 hours.
