Why are there whales and dolphins on a fish shirt?!

WHALES AND DOLPHINS ARE SEA MAMMALS!

I request an explanation.

I almost bought it but then I realized there is no reference for Marvin. 42 cannot be achieved without Marvin.

The misleading writeup is duly noted. But I'm guessing this is a Hitchhiker's Guide reference?

Although I like a good nod to Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, I wish this was a Ray Bradbury tribute instead because of his passing the other day.

That's kinda hard since our shirt sales are planned ahead of time. Sorry.

For those of you unaware, this is an expertly done shirt with references to The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, in which the answer to Love, Life, and the Universe is 42.

Woot, you really need to either stop figuring out things that I like, or help me raise funds to buy a vast quantity of your shirts.

Wow! These are the best wing dings I've ever seen! Where can I download them for free?

Is there a petunia? In a bowl?* Not sure I see one. Suitably grim for the occasion of leaving a planet about to be plowed out of the way, I suppose.

*Edit: have looked closely and thinking maybe, at the top of the 2.

If the shirt was blue, it could not only be a Hitchhiker's reference, but a football reference as well.

Not sure....

But there are fjords! And plenty of little fish to stick in your ear.

I know, I just am still sad about his passing. =(


Still, this one is a well done tribute to Hitchhiker's

It is actually just "Life, The Universe and Everything"...I cannot ever remember there being an answer for love...that is way too hard even for Deep Thought.

Seems to be comprised almost entirely of movie references, which is sad. I'd have liked to see more book references. Unless the movie captured way, way more of the book than I'm remembering...

Good shirt, though! I'd buy it if I could. Alas, Anvil does not fit me...

For essentially Black and White (monotone) Shirt designs, would it be at all possibly to offer them in different base colors?

There is something about Black shirts that just bugs me and I would have loved to have seen this in Blue or Grey or almost any other color really.

It seems close to the style, spacing and elements used to this recently featured woot shirt. I'm not saying it was copied but similar in style.

Thanks for the love, all!

And yes, the bowl of petunias is in the left slope of the 2!

This shirt would have been an insta-buy, admittedly I am still probably going to get it out of sheer love for the book. But I can't stand the feel of those blanks. Honduras? Might as well be Belgium. BELGIUM!

I like-ah, doo-dah, dah-cha-cha

First non AA shirt I've bought.
just couldn't say no to 42.

In for one. This will be my first woot shirt since they switched blank providers.

As for the movie, I've seen both the old 70s one and the Mos Def version. Neither referenced anything that I didn't remember from the book (though both left things out).

I've probably read the first book a dozen times. The whole series half that, and I've listened to the audio book on long drives from Florida to NJ dozens of times.

This awesome Hitchhiker's design was made in January, months before Ramy's awesome READ design! Both are awesome.

Whoa, worst thing?

Explain which image you mean... the one at the top of this page?

This is awesome and all. But why today? Just because, or am I missing some reason?

Wouldn't this have been more fitting on Towel Day?

I feel awful for Louisiana, Arkansas, the Dakotas, Nebraska, Wyoming, Tennessee, New Hampshire, Maine, Rhode Island, and Connecticut.

It's been up for almost an hour and no sales from those states.

Clearly they lack culture.

We should start a charity to send them Douglas Adams' books.

We can get get Sally Struthers or some kind of celeb spokesperson.

"For just 30 cents a day, you can sponsor a Nebraskan and bring them the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything. Won't you make that call?"

Am I correct in believing (without an accurate count) that there are 42 fish in the design?

"... you cannot afford perfect."

I spy a Ford Prefect hiding in that tee shirt description. Well played Woot, well played.

Now there's a site that knows where its towel is.
